Top 10 of the most dangerous streets in Paris, the bitumen without faith or law

Walking is fine. In Paris, it’s great. But going home whole is better. Thanks to data from the National Interministerial Road Safety Observatory (another super easy name to fit on a CV), Le Figaro has established a ranking of the most dangerous streets for pedestrians in the capital. The figures are based on the accidents recorded in 2020, and an average over 100m is established according to the number of incidents and the length of the tracks concerned. Here are the ten places (at least, at the most dangerous) where you will have to be extra vigilant!

1. Rue Pradier

Arrondissement : 19th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 4.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.4.

A little more culture: Did you think this street was a tribute to the Franco-Swiss sculptor James Pradier? Well no. It was simply the name of the site owner. Yeah, it kind of sucks as a story, but excuse me, not much going on there, ok!!

2. Victoria Avenue

Arrondissement : 4th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 6.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.4.

A little more culture: the route, 400 meters long, bears this name in memory of the visit of Queen Victoria of England. She had gone to the town hall of the capital on August 23, 1855 on the occasion of the universal exhibition (not that of the Eiffel Tower. That is 1889. Review your classics a little).

3. Rue Toulouse-Lautrec

Arrondissement : 17th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 3.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.5.

A little more culture: Toulouse is not the first name of Toulouse Lautrec since his name is actually Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Moreover, Toulouse is a not very popular first name (you surprise me…) It is estimated that there are around 1700 people in the world who are called that (i.e. 0.001% of the population: it is not huge.) On the other hand, we can affirm from a reliable source that Toulouse is the best city in the world. There, you will know.

4. Rue Marx Dormoy

Arrondissement : 18th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 13 (when I tell you that this number could of the uc)

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.5 (also)

A little more culture: Paul Eluard (20th century French poet) and his second wife (Nush) lived at 35 Rue Marx Dormoy. Among the most beautiful phrases of this man: I hear your voice vibrate in all the noises of the world. (I’m like I know, but it’s just my sister’s insta bio…)

5. Rue du Vieux Colombier

Arrondissement : 6th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 4.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.7.

A little more culture: A dovecote was, in feudal times, a building intended to house and breed pigeons. Basically, it’s a dovecote. WHAT ? YOU THINK COLOMBIER WAS A JOB? BAHAHAHAH BUT YOU’RE TOO CON. (Yes, it’s completely free. A thousand apologies.)

Little more culture gé bis (yes, we are generous at Topito): From 1661 to 1683, Boileau occupied an apartment there. Three times a week Molière, La Fontaine and Chapelle met there. Just that. The place to be, what.

6. Palace Boulevard

Arrondissement : 1st.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 4.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.7 (again.)

A little more culture: the street which is at its origin (and which corresponds to about a third of the current boulevard) is one of the oldest in Paris. It would have been pierced in the 12th century, during the reconstruction of the Grand-Pont (today Pont au Change.)

7. Athens Street

Arrondissement : 9th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 4.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.8.

A little more culture: the composer Maurice Ravel regularly stayed at the Hôtel d’Athènes. It’s not me who says it, it’s the plate. Just below.

8. Auber Street

Arrondissement : 9th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 8.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.9.

A little more culture: “Auber” refers to Daniel François Auber, French composer of the 19th century. A name that is not chosen at random: it comes from the proximity of the street to the National Opera Theater, built from 1861. It’s all about classical music, in short.

9. Rue Raymond Aron

Arrondissement : 13th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 4.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 1.9 (still.)

A little more culture: Raymond Aron was a French philosopher, sociologist, political scientist, historian and journalist, who died in 1983. At the time of the Cold War, he declared “Without the existence of NATO, would the Soviet tanks have swept over the countries from Western Europe? A sadly topical question today.

10. Boulevard Montmartre

Arrondissement : 9th.

Number of pedestrians run over in 2020: 9.

Average number of pedestrians knocked down every 100m: 3.9 (wow!)

A little more culture: The Boulevard de Montmartre is therefore the most dangerous of the Parisian roads. Not surprising when you know that already at the end of the 19th century, people were talking about the “crossroads of the crushed ones”. ” Atmosphere.
