Reported collisions up versus last year

The first half of 2014 was a busy one for car accidents in the city.

According to statistics released Friday by the Guelph Police Service, there were 1,511 collisions reported in the city between January 1 and June 30.

That’s up from 1,218 in the same period the year before.

The worst month for collisions was January.

The worst day of the week was Wednesday, and the worst time of day was 9 a.m.

Of those 1,500-plus collisions, 16 involved pedestrians, and it seems that their worst day was Thursday and worst time was between noon and 1 p.m.

The city’s top three – or worst three – intersections were Edinburgh Road South at Wellington Street West, Woodlawn Road East at Woolwich Street, and Stone Road East at Victoria Road South.

Of the total number of collisions in the six-month period, only 11 involved drugs or alcohol.
