The increased danger of an accident at stop signs

Stop sign violations are a major reason for serious car accidents. Some studies have put it as high as 70%. Drivers make mistakes at stop signs all the time. 

There are a few reasons that stop signs are so dangerous, and it’s important to consider them while trying to think about how you can stay safe on the road.

Traffic lanes have to cross

First and foremost, traffic lanes must cross at any intersection that is controlled by stop signs. There is no way to proceed without moving through lanes that are going perpendicular to your own. The stop signs are supposed to help you do this in a safe manner, but there is always an inherent danger when two cars are on a potential collision course.

Stop signs may be a judgment call

In a lot of situations, drivers have to make a judgment call at a stop sign. For instance, they may have to look and see if they have enough space at a two-way stop. If there isn’t enough room for cross traffic to get through but they think there is, they can pull right out in front of that car. 

Drivers may not always be clear on the rules

A traffic light is nice because it’s at least easy for drivers to understand that they stop when it’s red and they drive when it’s green. At a stop sign, drivers need to know the rules of the road. They need to know whose turn it is to drive and when it is safe to proceed. Any small mistake can lead to a crash, so you’re counting on everyone around you driving perfectly through the intersection. Realistically, that’s just not going to happen all the time.

If you do get injured in a car accident, and the other driver was at fault, then you may be eligible for compensation for medical bills and other costs.
