Cobb County’s Deadliest Intersections

Cobb County has seen a lot of growth over the past years with expansions on interstates and the newly planted SunTrust Atlanta Braves Stadium.

With growth comes more traffic and, unfortunately, car accidents.

The deadliest intersections in Cobb County is US 41 and Canton Road at I-75, with 3 dead over the last three years.

Other trouble areas in Cobb, according to CBS46, are:

  • Town Center Mall
  • Veterans Memorial Hwy & Floyd Road / Mableton Pkwy
  • Bells Ferry Road & Chastain Road / New Chastain Road
  • Roswell Road & Old Canton Road

Town Center Mall accounts for 22 crashes in 2014. All 22 accidents involved cars being t-boned, who were attempting to turn left across traffic to get on I-75 North from Ernest Barrett Parkway.

The Atlanta Regional Commission, which studies traffic patterns, suggested that individuals driving in the suburbs are generally moving faster than in the congested streets of downtown Atlanta - and more prone to accidents.

The ARC's hypothesis might just be correct, as data shows that the third leading cause of car accidents in these area are due to speeding.

In 2014, Cobb County saw 26,921 crashes on its roadways, with speeding being the third leading cause.

Speeding kills and we have to combat these startling statistics with safety on our roadways.

  • Drive defensively
  • Wear your seatbelt

  • Don't text and drive
  • Don't speed
