Two vehicle accident in New York

QUEENSBURY, NY- Poststar.com writes that a collision occurred this week that injured a woman from Corinth. The incident took place on Connecticut Avenue and Central Avenue in the morning. The victim, identified as a 65-year-old woman, was traveling west on Central Avenue in a 2017 KIA SUV. The other driver, an 81-year-old man from Ocala, Florida, was heading northbound in a 2012 Honda.

Responders transported the injured woman to the Glens Falls Hospital. Police ticketed the Florida driver for failure to yield.

While drivers may be familiar with stop signs as one of the most common traffic control devices, these signs are not the best way to prevent crashes and create safe roads. In fact, traffic lights are also not particularly effective at making roads safe.  Many motorists would likely be surprised to learn that when a traffic signal is installed at an intersection, rates of speeding actually increase. This is probably the result of drivers feeling the need to catch a green light.

More effective ways to slow traffic include speed bumps and curb extensions. These types of mechanisms prove better able to slow traffic down and reduce risks for road users than are signs and signals.

Similarly, roundabouts have proven better at preventing collisions than are traditional traffic control devices. The rate of deadly crashes, in particular, drastically declines when roundabouts are used. The reason is at least in part because drivers going through these traffic features are all traveling the same direction, and are forced to slow down. Pedestrians also fare better when roundabouts replace cross-section intersections with traffic lights or stop signs.
