Stop-Sign Collisions in Ohio
While traveling through an intersection, the likelihood of getting involved in a car accident increases, and the latest evidence even suggests that traffic intersections have become much more dangerous through the years. Even traffic signals can only do so much to prevent a deadly collision. National statistics show that red-light runners are responsible for hundreds of deaths across the country each year. Running a stop sign is just as dangerous.
