The intersection of 7th and H St NW in Chinatown also makes DDOT's list of dangerous intersections.
The District's Department of Transportation calls the intersection of MLK Jr. Av. and Howard Av. in Southeast D.C. the most dangerous intersection for pedestrians in the city.
It's a distinction that's not surprising, given how busy the intersection is. There are a lot of people walking to and from the Anacostia Metro station, and to several schools, and a lot of side streets that are feeding into this intersection.
"It's very busy, especially with the schools here and kids crossing," says Tika Jones, walking with her daughter. "And with the cross light and the cars being able to turn, that's very dangerous. They're always looking for the pedestrians to cross as they're turning, to turn on the red light."
The next most dangerous intersections in D.C., according to the DDOT are H St. and North Capitol, 14th and U St. NW, 15th and K NW, and Benning Rd. and East Capital.View 24 most dangerous intersections for pedestrians in a larger map
