As part of our larger study, Aitken Aitken Cohen, analyzed nine years of Orange County, CA traffic collision data. In addition to finding the 50 most dangerous in Orange County, we wanted to provide residents with a list specifically for Anaheim.
Where are the most dangerous intersections for motorists in Anaheim?
Below, we list the top 25 based on collision volume and injury severity.

From 2010 – 2018, no city in Orange County had more intersection-related crashes or injuries than Anaheim.
However, Anaheim did not have a single intersection in our Orange County top 50. This may suggest that while there are no singularly dangerous intersections, the risk is spread out throughout the city. In fact, there still are many high collision areas to be aware of.
Two Harbor Blvd crossings are one and two on our list as the most dangerous intersections in Anaheim.
Harbor Blvd and Lincoln Ave saw 32 crashes and 50 total injuries, while Harbor Blvd and La Palma Ave saw 31 crashes and 53 injuries during the study period. While the two had an identical CRI score, Harbor and Lincoln occupies the top spot due to having more serious injuries than Harbor and Lincoln.
