Traffic Safety Concerns on the South Side
Though Sterling Heights sits inside the busiest interstates and highways in the metro Detroit area, with no major metro highways passing through its border, there are still significant dangers for drivers in the area. In recent years, two Sterling Heights intersections have had the dubious distinction of being listed as top Michigan intersections for the number of accidents involving injury or fatality. For residents of the safest city in Michigan with over 100,000 residents, vehicle accidents on busy roadways may be one of the few consistent safety concerns they face, but the concerns are serious.
The two intersections combine for nearly 30 accidents involve injury or fatality each year and bookend the southernmost part of Sterling Heights. On the west side, the intersection at 15 Mile Road and Ryan Road is often busy with residents heading out to run errands, picking something up at CVS or eating at one of the many restaurants nearby. The other of these dangerous intersections, 14 Mile Road and Schoenherr Road, is similarly positioned for busy, and perhaps distracted and rushed, errand-goers, with banks, grocery stores, shopping and medical centers, and restaurants abundant in its vicinity.
Excess speed is always a common contributing factor in many car, semi-truck, and motorcycle accidents, in Sterling Heights and other communities. The role of distracted driving is increasing exponentially, as drivers often choose to continue engaging with electronics (smartphones, mp3 players, etc.) while driving. Other regular contributors to vehicle accidents include driving while under the influence and fatigued driving.
Being in Michigan, winter weather also impacts Sterling Heights accidents and makes the roadways much more dangerous. This applies to M-53 (Van Dyke Freeway) and M-59 (connected to Hall Road), as well as to smaller but still heavily populated roads throughout town.
