Intersection Traffic Control (Continued)

  • When facing a red signal, you must stop at a clearly marked stop line. If there isn't a stop line, stop before entering the crosswalk.
  • If you are in a vehicle facing a steady yellow signal, you are being warned by the signal that:
    • movement authorized by a green signal is being terminated; or
    • a red signal is to be given.
  • When the signal lights for traffic control are off, such as during a power outage of system malfunction, stop at the intersection as if there was a stop sign.

Intersection Dangers

Intersections are one of the most dangerous places on the road. Every year, thousands of people are killed or injured in collisions at intersections.

There are a number of reasons why intersections are so dangerous. First, there is a lot of traffic. With so many cars, trucks, and motorcycles all trying to get through the intersection at the same time, it's easy for things to get chaotic. Second, intersections are usually where two or more roads meet, which means that there are a lot of opportunities for vehicles to cross paths and collide.

Third, many intersections are controlled by traffic signals, which can be confusing for drivers. When the light turns green, drivers may not know who has the right of way, which can lead to confusion and accidents.

Fourth, intersections are often where pedestrians are trying to cross the street. This can be dangerous for both pedestrians and drivers, as pedestrians may not be visible to drivers, and drivers may not be paying attention to pedestrians.

Here are some tips to help you stay safe at intersections:

  • - Pay attention to traffic signals and yield to other drivers who have the right of way.
  • - Don't try to beat the light
  • - this could lead to a collision.
  • - Be extra cautious when driving through an intersection if there are pedestrians present.
  • - If you're making a turn, use your turn signal to let other drivers know what you're doing.
  • - Slow down when approaching an intersection, especially if the light is yellow or red.

    By following these tips, you can help to make intersections safer for everyone.
