Did you know that Houston’s most dangerous intersection is Beltway 8 at Bissonnet Street? Our Houston personal injury lawyers do and that’s because we’ve been helping victims of Houston car accidents every day for the past 20 years. Check out the Houston wrecks today, so you can plan your commute or your next road trip. Avoiding traffic is the first step towards avoiding a serious injury accident or fatal crash. We know just how dangerous the roads of Houston can be. Believing that PREVENTION IS THE BEST MEDICINE, we launched Houston’s first Traffic Accident Hotspot Map in 2012, as you can see here in a KPRC Channel 2 news feature. Attorney Stewart J. Guss believes that ‘knowledge is power’ and that’s the basic philosophy behind the crash map, if Houstonians can see where the most dangerous roads are - they can avoid them and STAY SAFE! Attorney Guss and his entire team LOVE the city that we call home - HOUSTON. That’s why we are always striving to do our absolute best, not only for our clients but for the whole city. We have launched various local social initiatives but for us, the accident hotspot map is incredibly vital, as we really believe that this map can actually SAVE LIVES! That’s why in 2016 we set about updating and improving our 2012 map to be the best tool available to help Houston drivers plan the safest possible route for each and every journey that they make in the Houston area. We have added several features to the new map enabling users to filter down information for exact locations, times, vehicles and contributing factors to every reported traffic in the Houston metro area from the past 5 years. Using the latest technology in combination with constantly updated traffic data we have produced a map that even allows you to see a recent image of any intersection in Houston that you choose to zoom in on. We hope that the updated map will help our fellow Houston drivers stay safe, and collaborate to share information and plan for ways to make our local streets and highways even safer. Whether you're traveling the southwest freeway, the 610 west loop, or the Sam Houston parkway, we've got you covered. With our interactive map, you can see where Houston wrecks occurred today, so you can avoid those areas. Are the southbound lanes open? Was it a pileup on the I-10? Did a hit and run car crash close down Main St? What road closings might affect your commute? Is the northbound lane of I-10 a gridlock? Is the exit ramp you need to take open? Our map can help you plan where you need to go - so you can get their safely and avoid a deadly crash.
