That type of approach to driving is what gets a lot of Great Lakes State drivers pulled over or even worse, sitting on the side of a road exchanging insurance information with another driver. Knowing where the most common accidents happen in your county could save you an expensive insurance premium or a costly ticket.

Before we take a look at the intersections with the most accidents and injuries in Ingham County, here are some quick tips from the Traffic Safety Supply Company to keep you and your family from becoming a statistic:

  • Always watch for cross traffic when approaching an intersection. Even if you have the right-of-way, don’t assume every driver will stop on a red.
  • When turning right on a red, make sure the car ahead of you clears. Read-end collisions are one of the most common intersection-related accidents.
  • Side-swipes are the other most common type of intersection-related accidents. It’s important to never change lanes while driving through an intersection as another vehicle may be turning from a cross street into your lane.
  • A faulty or dead traffic light system, creating an uncontrolled intersection, is one of the most dangerous traffic situations. Always treat an intersection with a faulty traffic light system as a four-way stop – but be extremely cognizant that some drivers may not know what do to in this situation.
  • Vehicles aren’t the only ones traveling through intersections. Watch for pedestrians using sidewalks and cyclists using bicycle lanes before accelerating or turning at an intersection.
