Car Accidents in Utah
A comprehensive study supervised by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration confirmed that more than 2,307,000 vehicle collisions occurred at intersections across the United States in 2017. These sorts of car crashes comprise 40% of all accidents nationwide. This shows that close to half of America’s accidents take place in intersections.
Even without design flaws, like obscured street signage or potholes, intersections present unique hazards for drivers in Utah. There are often several drivers, bicycle riders, and/or pedestrians traveling at different speeds in different directions, and some intersections have up to six lanes all coming together. Intersection accidents, even at slow speeds, are capable of causing serious and potentially life-threatening injuries.
