Pembroke Pines Intersection Accidents
Stop signs, traffic lights, road design, and road rules are not always enough to prevent intersection accidents in Pembroke Pines and across Florida. Unfortunately, motorists who are in a hurry, are distracted, or drive inebriated sometimes ignore traffic signals, lights, and laws and drive recklessly in a way that causes an accident. Intersections are especially likely spots for accidents because there are so many cars and road users within a relatively small space. At intersections, it is especially important that drivers obey the law and drive carefully.
