Common Causes of Intersection Crashes
Accidents can take place at intersections for a variety of reasons. In most cases, these crashes are preventable. Common factors in intersection crashes include:
- Impaired Driving: Alcohol or drug impairment impairs judgment and coordination, making it difficult to navigate intersections safely.
- Running Red Lights or Stop Signs: Drivers failing to obey traffic signals and signs can lead to dangerous T-bone or broadside collisions.
- Distracted Driving: Using cell phones, adjusting the radio, or other distractions can lead to inattentiveness and collisions.
