January 2024 Traffic Safety Spotlight

Intersection Safety

Lethbridge Police and other law enforcement agencies throughout the province are focusing on Intersection Safety for the month of January.

In 2021, 42 people died and nearly 6,000 were injured in intersection-related collisions in Alberta. Some of the most common driver errors include following too closely, making an unsafe left turn and failing to stop at a stop sign or red light. When excessive speed is added into the mix, the likelihood of a collision increases.

In addition to conventional enforcement, the use of intersection safety devices has proven to be effective in reducing collisions and casualties by getting motorists to reduce their speed and stop for red lights. But enforcement alone is not enough. Making our roads and intersections safer is everyone’s responsibility.

Motorists are advised to:

  • Always look before proceeding through an intersection – remember the road is also shared with pedestrians
  • Leave an abundance of room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front
  • Ensure it is safe to turn left before making the turn
  • Ensure you come to a complete stop at red lights and stop signs
  • Adjust your driving for the road conditions
