Chatham, NJ - One Dead in Crash at Lafayette Ave and Watchung Ave

A report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration analyzed patterns of age, sex, and driver behavior in intersection accidents. A few of the more fundamental findings of the publication include:

  • Collisions at intersections with stop signs or traffic signals are often the result of unlawful maneuvers or driver inattention.
  • Left-turn intersection crashes are often the result of misjudgment of another driver’s distance and speed or an obstructed view.
  • Collisions involving right-turns at intersections with stop signs are often the result of an incorrect assumption of another driver’s actions.
  • Male drivers are more apt to cause intersection crashes by performing unlawful maneuvers, incorrect assumptions of another driver’s actions, and speeding. Female drivers most often cause intersection crashes through an incorrect assumption of another driver’s actions, internal distractions, and inattention.
  • For elderly drivers, frequent causes of intersection accidents include miscalculation of another driver’s distance and speed, along with inadequate surveillance.
