I don't think it will be an issue.

 

Most dangerous intersection(s) in the US are actually a series of multi-lane roads that cross 12 lanes of route 1 locally called roosevelt ave in philly. It's so bad they actually put cameras up and sensors that allow warning lights to flash if movement is detected that creates a conflict. The intersections themselves are more than 16 lanes, because rt 1 widens with additional turning lanes. They also added the turning lanes to improve safety. It remains #1 on every road safety list as a hazard, however it is much safer than it used to be. 100 people or so used to die there a year.

 

The 12 lanes are 4 groups of 3, 2 in the middle for going straight through, and 2 on the outside for local traffic Separating them are 12 foot wide grass landscaped medians. The other roads are 4-6 lanes.

How about the street right in front of West Farms Depot? Damn near impossible to cross no matter who got the light.

I remember back in 2005, every other week you'd hear that someone got ran over there, that's how bad it is (but then again, people shouldn't jaywalk on big streets like that anyway)
