One third of all car accidents occur at intersections. Intersections are considered to be one of the most dangerous places for an automobile.
There are many factors involving car accidents at intersections. Some intersection car accidents involve the failure to yield the right of way, while others involve the failure to obey a stop sign, stop lights or other traffic control devices at the intersection.
Many car accidents at intersections involve left-turning cars trying to cross on-coming traffic. Traffic lanes crossing, cars turning and changing speeds or stopping are a few reasons many auto accidents occur at intersections. In fact, over 40% of all car accident fatalities involve drivers failing to yield the right of way, driving through a stop sign or ignoring a stop light at an intersection.
