Answer

More than any other place crashes happen at intersections.

More crashes happen at intersections than any other place. Two-thirds of all crashes happen where roads intersect. The most common type of intersection crash is the right-angle or T-bone crash, followed by the left-turn and head-on crashes. crashes often occur when one or more drivers run a red light or stop sign, fail to yield the right-of-way, make an improper turn, or drive too fast for conditions.

Distracted driving, such as texting while driving, can also increase the risk of crashing. To help prevent crashes, always look both ways before entering an intersection and be prepared to stop if necessary. Pay attention to traffic signals and obey posted speed limits. And remember, it’s always better to arrive alive than not at all.
