Whether you've been a licensed West Virginia driver for years or recently passed the test as a new driver, your safety and that of your passengers largely depends on your personal driving habits. While you understand that you're obligated to adhere to all traffic laws, you also know that you can't control what other drivers do. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers and others can place you and your passengers at immediate risk for collision and injury. Intersections are locations requiring tremendous caution at the wheel.
There are several types of intersections, including some that are secured by traffic lights or signage and others that have no signs or lights at all. Even if you do everything right as you approach and navigate an intersection, another driver might do something wrong, which causes a crash and lands you in a hospital emergency room.
