Intersections are one of the most dangerous locations on any roadway. You should pay particular attention to the cross traffic as you approach the intersection. Cross traffic includes all road users that are traveling on the intersecting road and may cross or enter your path. This course will identify common contributing factors to cross traffic intersection collisions and strategies to prevent intersection collisions due to cross traffic.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Define a cross traffic intersection collision
  • Describe common contributing factors to cross traffic intersection collisions
  • Identify strategies to prevent intersection collisions due to cross traffic

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are intersections designed to do?
Intersections are designed to limit the number of conflict points by funneling all roadway users including vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians, to planned locations.

What is cross traffic?
Cross traffic includes all road users that are traveling on the intersecting road and may cross or enter your path.

When approaching an intersection with a red light, what should you do?
As you approach an intersection with a red light or stop sign, be sure to come to a complete stop and scan in all directions multiple times before determining if it is safe the enter the intersection.

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Although cross traffic intersection crashes may have several different causes, there are strategies you can use to prevent them. As with most crash types, the first step in preventing cross traffic intersection crashes is to always obey all traffic control devices! This includes yield signs, stop signs, flashing yellow or red lights, and the traditional green, yellow, and red stop lights. As you approach an intersection with a yield sign or a flashing yellow light, make sure to scan your environment multiple times. By looking in all directions multiple times, you will limit the chances of a vehicle being in your blind spot and not seeing it. If there is vehicle approaching, and it has the right of way, slow down or stop, and wait until you can safely enter the intersection.
