Reduce Your Exposure to Auto Intersection Accidents

Automobile crashes causing injuries and property damage occur at the highest rates in cities. One study indicates that 81 percent of crashes occur in urban locations. Another study reports that approximately 43 percent of auto accidents are intersection-related incidents. The following intersection safety tips are ones for you to consider.

  • Plan ahead. Get into the lane you need for your next turn well in advance of reaching the intersection. It is essential that your turn signal be activated before making the turn.

  • Avoid speeding. You need plenty of time to react to motorists who make intersection mistakes.

  • Be aware of other vehicles changing lanes. Try to stay out of other drivers' "blind spots" where they cannot see you in their rear and side mirrors.

  • Always stop behind the marked crosswalk. This will give other drivers better views of the intersection and avoid mishaps with pedestrians.

  • Avoid entering an intersection when the traffic is backed up on the other side. This could result in you getting stuck in the middle of the intersection if this traffic does not move.
