Pay Special Attention at Intersections!

January 29, 2013 - 10:51 pm

Drivers of all ages should pay special attention at intersections. And a recent study has proved it again. Taking your time to approach the intersection slowly can calm a driver, but it can also mean less accidents.

A recent study reports that bicyclists and drivers are equally to blame for accidents due to not yielding the right-of-way, and “The vast majority of crashes occurred within 50 feet of an intersection.” Minneapolis, has also been voted the “Top Bike-Friendly City” in the US. With bikes and cars sharing the road more and more, everyone needs to take their time and look, follow right-of-way, and show extra caution at the intersections.

“Share the Road” – MDOT Campaign to See Pedestrians

October 2, 2012 - 7:00 pm

According to the Star Tribune, pedestrian deaths in 2012 are already at a 5 year high in Minnesota. MDot has decided to launch a “Share the Road” campaign to raise awareness to this deadly, but very reversible trend.

Here are some of their major tips:

1.) “Stop for pedestrians at crosswalks.“
2.) “Watch for pedestrians at all times.”
3.) “Avoid distracted and aggressive driving”
