Elk and Elk also did an analysis to show the most dangerous intersections in Ohio. While we may not be the best drivers in the country here in Cleveland, we may very well be the best drivers in the state. According to their statewide analysis, Cleveland, despite being the second largest city in the state, only has one intersection listed within the top 50. Twenty-four of the top 50 most dangerous intersections in the state are located in Columbus.
