Hello All, well it winter here in NY but I can not complain to much as I do not have much snow in my yard (1/2") if even that much. Its been good so far so I have to knock on wood. How has the driving been doing with everyone and those with snow how is the driving. I just took a course to reduce my car insurance which is 6 hours long and I did it on-line as the person who use to teach it on the base where I worked has retired from doing it, miss his classes as he was a NY State Trooper. We all had fun and learned a lot from him and had some stories he would tell.
As I have always been say over and over again about intersections, right-of-way who has it and who does not have the right of way. In fact, right-of-way violations are responsible for more injuries than any other improper driving behavior. That means a driver thought he or she had the right-of-way.
When it comes to the right-of-way, the reality is the law gives no driver the right-of-way. Traffic regulations only state who must yield the right-of-way. So, the old notion of "having" the right-of-way is wrong, so wrong that it can kill you!
Think about how many intersections you cross every day, it's probably more than a hundred. So, statistically speaking, your chances for a collision are highest at an intersection. In fact, in city or urban areas, more than half of all collisions occur at intersections.
This is from my reading of NY State traffic book,but I believe it would be for all of the USA, my Police friends could correct me on this.
