Drivers should watch their bumpers at malls, on Highway 100 and in northwest Milwaukee, all of which had intersections with the most car crashes in Milwaukee County from 2007-'11, a Journal Sentinel analysis shows.

Intersections near Mayfair, Bayshore and Southridge malls took top spots, with N. Mayfair Road and W. North Ave. racking up 111 crashes over the time period, the most of any street intersection not involving highway ramps, according to state Department of Transportation data.

The malls have perennially high crash numbers because of the sheer volume of cars, police in Glendale and Wauwatosa said. As destinations, they also attract drivers unfamiliar with the local roads.
