Inattentive driving can result in intersection accidents

Posted on June 5, 2015 4:32 pm under Car Accidents

Intersections are a common and inevitable road feature present all over the country. However, they are also the site of many traffic accidents that result in serious injuries. No matter how inherently dangerous intersections are, these risks are exacerbated when drivers fail to pay adequate attention.

Driver error is one of the most common causes of intersection accidents. Drivers could be at fault in this type of accident if they:

  • Try to run the red light
  • Fail to slow down upon entering the intersection
  • Don’t follow the right of way on intersections with no traffic lights
  • Fail to turn on signal lights when turning right or left

A driver’s inattention could lead to injurious, sometimes even fatal road accidents.
