Hundreds of thousands of people are injured in car accidents throughout the state of New York every single year. These accidents take place in the blink of an eye in many different areas but intersections are among the most common. In just one recent year’s time in the entire U.S., approximately 2.5 million intersection accidents took place due to the recklessness of others. These accidents happen due to a wide array of reasons including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and more. When a driver is not paying close attention to the roads around them, they are more likely to breeze through an intersection.
