Beware of this road rage hotspot in Wappingers Falls, New York

This intersection looks innocent but this place is a war zone at all hours of the day.

Do you take this route every day?

It’s safe to say that many New Yorkers have had their fair share of road rage incidents while commuting or traveling in the Hudson Valley.

The roads in the Hudson Valley are extremely busy. It’s very easy to get caught up in a confrontation with another driver. Road rage remains a serious problem in New York State and across the country. There are many drivers on the road in our regions so there is always a high probability of an incident.

According to Kaplan’s law, almost 50% of drivers who encounter aggressive behavior react aggressively. There is one intersection in particular located in Wappingers Falls that always seems to anger commuters.

Here is the crossroads.

What makes this place so dangerous?

Drivers heading into Beacon can use two lanes leading quickly to the traffic light on 9D and Brockway Road. This creates two lanes of congestion. The 2nd way ends quickly as soon as you cross the light. The drivers don’t seem to politely handle this merger. Even when the light is green, drivers often try to pass other motorists before the light, then merge just after passing the light.

I commute on this road and feel like I see a drag race or an altercation between two drivers almost daily.
