The Roseville Police Department recently shared the top five collision locations in Roseville, California, for 2022. The report revealed that at least 1,300 traffic collisions took place across the city last year. The department has been tracking collision locations for years, and it hopes that sharing this information will help to raise awareness of the city’s most dangerous intersections and reduce the number of accidents that occur in these areas.
Roseville’s Most Dangerous Intersections
The top five collision locations in Roseville for 2022 are:
- Galleria Boulevard and Roseville Parkway in central Roseville
- Cirby Way and Sunrise Avenue in east Roseville
- Fairway Drive and Pleasant Grove Boulevard in northern Roseville
- Cirby Way and Riverside Avenue in southern Roseville
- Foothills Boulevard and Pleasant Grove Boulevard in central Roseville
Analyzing Changes from the Previous Year
The report shows some changes from the preliminary list of high-collision intersections produced by the department about a year ago. For example, Cirby Way and Riverside Avenue, which was #4 on the previous list, has dropped to #5, while Foothills Boulevard and Pleasant Grove Boulevard has moved up to #5 from its previous position outside the top five.
Galleria Boulevard and Roseville Parkway remained at the top of the list, as it is one of the busiest intersections in the city. The area is home to several popular shopping centers, including the Galleria Mall, the Fountains, and Creekside Town Center, which draw shoppers from across the Sacramento area.
Cirby Way and Sunrise Avenue, which is situated in a densely populated residential area and close to a high school, moved up to #2 from its previous position at #4. Sunrise Avenue is a long road that stretches from Roseville to Elk Grove, and the intersection sees a significant amount of traffic.
Fairway Drive and Pleasant Grove Boulevard in northern Roseville, near the border with Rocklin, took the #3 spot on the list. The intersection is close to the onramps and offramps of Highway 65 and is surrounded by three major retail centers and a large residential area.
Cirby Way and Riverside Avenue, which dropped to #4 on the list, is located in the southernmost part of Roseville and is fed by those exiting eastbound and westbound Interstate 80, along with those looking to use Cirby to travel east or west. Riverside Avenue is also a major roadway connecting Citrus Heights to Downtown Roseville.
Finally, Foothills Boulevard and Pleasant Grove Boulevard in central Roseville took the #5 spot on the list, up from its previous position outside the top five. Foothills Boulevard is the major north/south roadway that connects the northernmost part of the city with Sacramento County, while Pleasant Grove Boulevard is one of two major east/west roads that has seen a significant increase in traffic over the years due to the city’s population growth.
The Roseville Police Department hopes that sharing this information will raise awareness and encourage drivers to be more cautious in these areas. It reminds drivers to always wear seat belts, avoid distractions while driving, obey traffic signals, and drive at a safe and appropriate speed. By taking these precautions, drivers can help to reduce the number of collisions that occur on the city’s roads.
