A car accident from running a stop sign occurred in Caldwell last week. Idaho State Police reported a two-vehicle, injury car crash on US20 in Caldwell. The driver of a pickup truck failed to make a complete stop at a stop sign and collided with another oncoming vehicle. Both vehicles came to rest in the roadway. It was reported that both drivers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the car accident. The driver of the pickup truck was transported by ground ambulance to a nearby medical physicality for injury evaluation. The road was blocked for about two hours while crews worked to clear the accident.
Car Accident from Running a Stop Sign Statistics
Caldwell and the surrounding areas are known as a suburban or rural area. Thus, it should come as no surprise that there are many stop signs around. Car accidents from running a stop sign are common in the Boise area. It is easy to assume there is no one else around so you don’t need to stop. This type of thinking is very hazardous and can cause serious car accidents, however. Nearly 700,000 police reported car accidents occur annually at stop signs. About one-third of these car crashes involve injuries, reported the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Typically, these types of accidents occur in the same way. A driver is in a hurry and fails to stop completely or stops but fails to yield. A stop sign requires a drier to not only make a complete full stop but also look for vehicle conflicts to judge if it is safe to proceed. These statistics prove that too often drivers are not making correct judgements at a stop sign.
