oh, it's for being pedestrian friendly, which I guess makes sense

at first I thought it was about driving, and my thought was "that's not even the worst intersection in Omaha!"

Interesting thread. I would have voted for number 3, Savannah, Georgia. It looks harder to cross due to the curved lanes, it looks more confusing. They would certainly all be difficult to cross on foot or bike. That intersection in Omaha doesn't have much in the way of pedestrian traffic. Unless someone happens to have car problems or something like that. Apparently the average amount of foot traffic wasn't factored into the ratings.

One poster mentioned an intersection (second link) in NYC, Queens Blvd & 51st Avenue. I'd say it would have taken the prize before the cross walks and islands were put in. I'd bet there is more foot traffic there as well.

Take a look at this intersection (first link), Marietta Parkway & Powers Ferry Rd in Marietta, Georgia. It's a long haul getting from one side to the other. At least it has a crosswalk, but no islands for the slowpokes. I wonder how many seconds they get.

I was totally trying to cram 144th into this picture. I couldn't figure it out for a while.
