A Crowded City

According to the New York City Department of City Planning, the Big Apple is home to more than eight million people. If that weren't enough, tens of millions more people visit the city each year. That means there are a lot of feet beating the pavement and wheels burning the road - it's basically chaos out there! It's no surprise the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles reports tens of thousands of motor vehicle accidents in New York City alone.

Crash Factors in New York Intersection Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released a report that extensively details patterns of age, sex and behavior in intersection-related crashes. Below are some of the more notable findings of the report:

  • Crash occurrences at intersections with traffic signals or stop signs may be attributed to driver inattention or illegal maneuvers.
  • Left-turn intersection collisions may be attributed to obstructed view or misjudgment of the other driver's speed and distance.
  • Right-turn intersection accidents at stop signs may be attributed to false assumption of the other driver's actions.
  • Male drivers are more likely to cause an intersection crash due to illegal maneuvers, false assumption of the other driver's action, or speeding, whereas for female drivers, the common causes are false assumption of the other driver's action, inattention, and internal distraction.
  • For older drivers, the common causes of intersection accidents are misjudgment of the other driver's speed and distance along with inadequate surveillance.
