Why are Kansas City's intersections so terrible?
Kansas City's streets are often confusing and dangerous for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. Although the city has several efforts underway to make its roads safer, there seem to be too many "cursed" intersections to fix all at once.
A user on the Kansas City subredditasked the question: "What is the most cursed intersection in Kansas City?" Residents named over 40 places with poor sidewalks, no crosswalks and speedy drivers. Out of all these answers, however, five places kept showing up.
KCUR's Nomin Ujiyediin spoke with reporters Celisa Calacal and Savannah Hawley about where these "cursed" intersections were located and how they're being changed — or not.
