Kingston: Navigating the Risks on Ontario’s Third Most Dangerous Roads

Recent findings have placed Kingston as the third most dangerous city for driving in Ontario, a concerning title for residents and visitors alike. This ranking, derived from a comprehensive study by MyChoice, an insurance comparison site, is based on data including over 100,000 insurance quotes, 2,274 accidents, and 5,080 traffic tickets since 2020.

The study, titled “Top 10 Safest and Most Dangerous Cities for Driving in Ontario,” reveals startling statistics about driving risks in Kingston. With 13.84% of drivers having accidents on their record, Kingston only trails behind Brantford and Ajax in this dubious distinction. These figures underscore a pressing need for enhanced road safety measures and driver awareness.

As personal injury lawyers, Bergeron Clifford understand the gravity of these statistics. Car accidents can result in serious injuries, ranging from whiplash to more severe, life-altering conditions. Victims may face not only physical and emotional trauma but also financial burdens due to medical expenses, lost wages, and other related costs.

Seeking compensation for injuries and damages is not just about financial recovery; it is about ensuring justice and safety on our roads.
