State Farm Tackles Problem Of Dangerous Intersections.

State Farm Insurance, Bloomington, Ill., has spent more than $4 million to help communities study and fix dangerous intersections in a program designed to help communities while reducing risk.

"It's sort of a unique situation. It's business offering grants to government, whereas it's usually the other way around," said State Farm spokesman Dick Luedke.

Through the program, State Farm studied its 1998 claims records and, after adding adjustments to reflect market share, listed the 10 worst intersections in the United States.

The company then pledged $20,000 to pay for an engineering study of each one, plus $100,000 toward repairs.

The program also includes grants of up to $20,000 to study 172 intersections that State Farm pinpointed nationwide.
