The safety of road users at intersections and traffic lights have become a major concern. The biggest threat remain blatant lawlessness amongst drivers and them not obeying the Rules of the Road!
Amongst the types of Road Traffic Crashes that are most dangerous are the T-Bone crashes where one vehicle collides at speed into the side of another. The side-walls of a vehicle offers much less protection than the engine and airbags situated at the front of a vehicle.
One of the causes of these crashes are the so-called “Red Light Accellerators and Green Light Anticipators” – Some drivers increase speed to try and get across the lights that has just turned red whilst others start driving too early in anticipation of the light going to turn green!
This is best illustrated by the above video sent to the Arrive Alive website!
