Areas where roads intersect can pose hazards for individuals on foot who are trying to cross the street. If a vehicle is turning onto a street that a pedestrian is attempting to cross, the driver may see the individual too late or not see the person at all. As a result of such situations, serious accidents can take place that lead to pedestrians suffering injuries.

When individuals are in their early 20s, ideas about what will happen in the rest of their lives are often at the forefront of their thoughts.
