The Federal Highway Administration reports that over 50 percent of the combined crashes involving fatalities and injuries occur at intersections. Driver negligence is one of the most common elements in intersection accidents. Drivers frequently underestimate the time needed to cross the intersection and then in a last minute rush decide to try to beat the light. Other times, drivers roll through stops and continue through an intersection when it is not actually safe to do so. Design defects or maintenance issues can also contribute to intersection accidents and can include things like inadequately marked lanes, missing or insufficient signage obstructed signs, defective traffic lights, potholes, inadequate lighting, or poorly maintained roads.
