However, this intersection isn’t the only one in Florida that motorists need to worry about. In fact, every intersection needs to be approached carefully in order to minimize your chances of being involved and injured in a Florida intersection accident.
Here Are Some Tips to Minimize Florida Intersection Accidents:
Obey traffic lights
When the light turns yellow, come to a stop instead of speeding up
When the light turns green, look both ways before accelerating
Always watch for bicyclists and pedestrians at intersections and yield to them
Only make a turn when traffic is clear and it is absolutely safe
The next time you come to an intersection, think about the safety tips above. Never ignore the rules of the road and proceed with great caution. However, even the safest driver still may be injured in an intersection accident due to another’s negligence.
