Key Information

bulletIn most driving situations drivers can make successful trips through intersections. The majority of the time the driver can plainly see the approaching traffic and can safely drive through the intersecting street to continue on his or her way.
bulletOccasionally, there are factors in motion such as intersections on a curve or hilly area that present an obstructed view of approaching vehicles.  These are hard to understand unless a sight triangle study is done to ascertain just how much distance a driver could see down the road to the hazard when it presented itself.
bulletThis information is critical to time and distance studies concerning liability in failure to yield or stop at an intersection.
