Types of Intersection Accidents
Many intersection collisions occur because these are locations where two or more roads cross each other and there are activities such as turns, pedestrians, and bicyclists which present a unique situation for motorists. Intersections have a large proportion of crashes that occur because when two or more rides come together there is higher chance that vehicles could do the same. One of the most dangerous type of intersection is the four way stop. The four way stop intersection can be controlled by a stop light or a red light. The dangerous of a four way stop is in having a large amount of cars, trucks, or motorcycles trying to pass through the intersection at the same time. As traffic starts to gather, many become in a hurry to make it through the light. When vehicles run red lights or fail to stop at a stop sign it becomes increasingly likely that an auto accident could occur. Common types of intersection accidents include:
- U-Turns- these types of accidents typically occur when a vehicle is trying to make a U-turn at an intersection and then colliding with oncoming traffic.
- Running a red Light or stop sign- failing to follow the law regarding traffic intersections can have dangerous consequences. Many of these accidents occur because the vehicle falls to stop and does not have the ride of way. This can result in what is common called a side impact collision or a T-Bone accident.
- Turns occurring at Intersection- According to the National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey that was done on crashes between 2005-2007, 23% of intersection crashes occurred when the driver was turning at an intersection.
