In many ways, when it comes to traffic, we are really lucky here in Maine.  Yes, during the summers, we do see the occasional traffic backup - mostly in places around popular tourist attractions.  The area around Red's Eats in Wiscasset or Route 1 in Saco, for example.

But, compared to places like Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York, we don't really have crazy traffic problems.  if you spend more than a few minutes in gridlock, it is probably because there is an accident ahead.

That being said, we still do have our share of traffic accidents.  And, not surprisingly, some intersections are way more prone to accidents than others.

Based on data from the Maine Department of Transportation, these are some of the most-dangerous intersections in Central Maine.  Keep in mind, the data for this list comes from 2018 and 2019.  While we saw a significant drop in traffic throughout most of  2020, 2021 has been a lot more normal.  Overall, traffic is probably not back to 2019 levels, but it is close.

Take a look at our list and let us know what other intersection need to be on the list.
