Smart Mobility Solutions for Safety

Spotlight on the Intersection

According to the FHWA, more than 50% of all reported crashes and 20% of total fatalities occur at or near the intersection. Intersection crashes also account for roughly $490 million per year in economic and societal costs. These statistics are staggering and are driving agencies across the country to focus their efforts on improving safety at intersections to make the most impact within their communities.

While there is no single reason why intersection crashes occur, experts at the local, state and national levels all agree that developing systems and leveraging technology to improve intersection safety are high priorities.


While technology is not a cure-all solution, implementing the right policies along with state-of-the-art hardware and software enables agencies to take a data-driven approach to assessing, prioritizing and addressing safety risks at intersections.
