KANAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City Police issued a report to the Board of Police Commissioners earlier this week, listing the top locations for traffic crashes during the third quarter of 2012.
The busy interchange at Interstates 435 and 70 was the site of the most traffic crashes in the second quarter of 2012. There were 25 wrecks there from July through September.
Drivers could have avoided most of those by using better road manners: The report listed following too close as the leading cause of those wrecks.
Police issued more than 500 traffic tickets during those months at the interchange.
Kansas City drivers weren't much safer at Gregory Boulevard and 71 Highway. That location had the second-most crashes -- 17. Officers were busy at that location, too, writing more than 400 tickets during the quarter.
The top 20 crash locations had 1,252 wrecks, according to the report.
