How Can I Avoid Being Involved in an Accident at these Dangerous Intersections?

Knowing the rules of the road can help all motorists avoid accidents, which also means following the speed limit, and putting your phone or other electronics down while driving.

Unfortunately, even when drivers are doing all they can to drive defensively, negligent drivers are sharing our roadways and using the same intersections as the rest of us.

Paying attention to your surroundings, and safely sharing the road with other motorists can decrease your chances of being involved in a collision, so do your best each time you are behind the wheel.
