Every year The Federal Highway Administration reports approximately 2.5 Million intersection accidents. Most of these crashes involve left turns.

Nationally, 40 percent of all crashes involve intersections, the second largest category of accidents, led only by rear end collisions.

Fifty percent of serious collisions happen in intersections and some 20 percent of fatal  collisions occur there.

An estimated 165,000 accidents occur annually in intersections caused by red light runners. Fatalities caused by red light runners run from 700-800 a year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is the primary source for traffic accidents statistics.
