Where Do Most Car Accidents Occur? At Intersections

How many intersections do you go through,

  • On your way to work?
  • Taking your children to school?
  • Heading to the grocery store?
  • Driving home from church?

Many of us take for granted the idea of safely traveling through the many intersections that we encounter on our daily commutes.  Whether we’re driving on a highway, county road or local street, intersections present a danger.

Most Motorcycle Accidents Happen at Intersections

According to the Federal Highway Administration, over the last several years an average of 21% of the fatal car accidents, and roughly 50% of serious car accident injuries, are attributable to intersections. Intersections can also become very congested during rush hour causing more delays and resulting in more frustration.

Prevention of Accidents at Intersections

Recently, the Georgia DOT was part of a workshop, with other safety representatives from across Georgia, with the goal to enhance safety and reduce car accidents at intersections throughout Georgia.  From the results of the workshop, the following “how to” statement was released:

The traditional approach of relying primarily on pursuing major improvements at high crash intersections must be complemented with a) a systematic approach deploying large numbers of relatively low-cost, cost-effective countermeasures at many targeted high crash intersections and b) a comprehensive approach coordinating an engineering, education, and enforcement initiative on corridors and in cities with large numbers of severe intersection crashes.

  • Approximately 35% of the intersection fatality problem occurs on local intersections Realistically, it will take an expanded local effort and increased local funding to implement more countermeasures on local roads than is currently underway to achieve the intersection goal
  • To achieve the intersection safety goal, it will take an investment of approximately $75 million dollars beyond currently programmed intersection safety projects over the five year period, or $15 million annually to achieve the goal.

So whichever route you are using, take your time through each intersection and maintain a proper lookout as traffic becomes more congested. At Kaine Law we have seen far too many loved ones suffer lifelong injuries, or even death, due to accidents at intersections.

    It should be noted that the 3 negative reviews below (two from Hazledean and one from McCabe) are Husband, Wife and Daughter and should be read as one review not three separate incidents.
