Hallandale Beach Intersection Accidents
Intersections in Hallandale Beach and across Florida are often a recipe for disaster. There are many vehicles as well as pedestrians and bicyclists in a small area of space, all going in different directions. Ideally, when roads are well-designed and traffic lights work correctly, everyone gets to where they need to go safely and securely.
However, when drivers are negligent at intersections, serious car crashes and even fatal accidents are the norm. Have you or your loved one been injured due to someone's negligence?

According to safety experts, there are many ways to avoid intersection accidents:
1) Check when approaching intersections. Whatever type of intersection you approach, look both ways once and then look again. This allows you to notice any cars that may have been in your blind spot during the initial look over. The simple extra look could help save your life.
2) Wait a second when the light turns green. Waiting a fraction of a second and looking both ways helps you avoid any car that is trying to run a yellow light.
3) When you are making a left-hand or right-hand turn, look to the right and the left. This allows you to look for pedestrians, bicyclists, and anyone else headed in your direction.
4) Never change lanes in the middle of an intersection or while approaching an intersection. Sometimes, cars will try to change lanes just before an intersection in order to get into a turning lane. Other drivers will try to change lanes in the middle of an intersection in order to get into the correct position or the correct lane. Both moves are extremely dangerous because you may not see approaching vehicles in time to avoid a collision.
Of course, even if you do everything right, negligent or reckless drivers can make driving through an intersection extremely dangerous.Have You Been Injured in a Car or Truck Crash in Hallandale Beach or Your Community?
Driving through an intersection can be a leap of faith.
