Junction density has been identified as a risk factor although the results of research into the effect of junction density on crash frequency and/or crash severity (number and extent of injuries) is inconclusive. Some studies indicate that denser street networks with higher densities of junctions lead to fewer crashes across all severity levels. Other studies reveal the opposite with increases in the density of certain junction types leading to significantly more crashes of a certain type or of all crashes.
