Why Shouldn't You Change Lanes While Going Through An Intersection?

At Flattmann Law, we have handled numerous car wreck claims arising from intersection crashes. We’ve seen it all, ranging from T-bone collisions to rear-end accidents, to pedestrians being hit in crosswalks. Here is one big tip that can help decrease your chances of getting in an accident.

Why more crashes occur at intersections:

More traffic activity involving vehicles exiting and entering a roadway combined with traffic moving in multiple directions equals the higher potential for accidents. Add to this mix the inattentiveness and distraction of drivers these days and you have a recipe for disaster.

Remember that driver you had to honk at yesterday because they were on their phone instead of paying attention to the light when it turned green?  Imagine that same driver waiting at the intersection you are about to cross. Does that change the way you look at it? Would you do anything different at the intersection to help avoid an accident?
