The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

What are the most dangerous intersections in Las Vegas? The reason we bring this is up is because being the first day of fall:  Remember to slow down and be a little more careful on the roads because there tend to be more CAR CRASHES today. The Mike & Carla Morning Show pointed out to those driving to work to be a bit more careful driving to and from work today.

Featured in the segment, “A Few Things We Think You Should Know” this morning, just a reminder that the fall equinox is when the sun rises exactly in the east, and sets exactly in the west. And that can cause some serious windshield glare.

Something you might not realize is that a lot of the country’s major roadways are oriented east-to-west.  So a lot of us will be driving directly into the sun on our commute. So make sure you are a bit more cautious driving around Las Vegas today and maybe for the next few days as people get adjusted to the new season.

As crazy as it might sound, it just doesn’t happen today, but it also happens around the spring equinox in March as well.  Here are a few things that can help . . .

1.  Windex the outside AND inside of your windshield.  There’s a lot less glare when it’s clean.

2.  Keep sunglasses handy.  It’s not summer anymore, but you still need them.  Polarized sunglasses work best.

3.  Slow down.  The sun can still momentarily blind you, even with sunglasses on.  And keep in mind that other drivers might be struggling too.

Now if you are new to Vegas, you’ll notice right away how bad traffic can be and how drivers, who come from all over the place, bring those specific driving skills from where they’re from and think everything is just fine. Well, guess what? Driving does get a little hectic around the valley and depending on where you’re headed, a few areas you just might want to avoid as you get used to the traffic here.

According to a recent KLAS-Channel 8 report, they found these to be the Top 5 most dangerous intersections in Las Vegas over the years…not much has changed. Scroll down to check out the list of intersections that claim to be the worst in Las Vegas!
