Every year there is a high number of intersection crashes in Christchurch.
As you approach an intersection, slow down and look in all directions: ahead, behind and to both sides.
Be alert when approaching traffic light controlled intersections:
When turning into a road that has multi-lanes, turn into the same lane throughout the turn. Indicate for at least 3 seconds before you change lanes.
Making sure an intersection is clear to exit through before you enter it. By doing your part you can improve traffic flows and congestion for everyone.
Blocking the intersection, makes it difficult for emergency vehicles to get through and creates a dangerous situation for both drivers and pedestrians.
