Sergeant Bob’s Safety Tip of the MonthVisit the Senior Safety Tips website
Easy Steps to Collision Avoidance - Lane Discipline at Intersections
After rear-enders, the second most common multi-vehicle collision is caused by “Incorrect Turning Movement”. To drastically reduce your likelihood of crashing when turning, remember...
At an intersection, prepare to turn from the correct turning lane and MOST IMPORTANTLY, complete the maneuver by entering the correct lane. DO NOT swerve beyond your new direction lane.
In the intersection graphic, follow the GREEN arrows only.
Lane discipline is critically important when there are other drivers, motorcyclists and bicyclists turning, and pedestrians crossing.
Summary: Stay alert, concentrate on traffic signs and signal lights, use turn signals, check for traffic and enter ONLY the correct lane.
