5 Everyday Driving Dangers That Affordable Infrastructure Improvements Could Solve

There are many roadway conventions we take for granted in Reading, like that busy intersection where too many streets criss-cross at weird angles. Sometimes, the way we have gotten used to roads looking isn't as safe as they could be with a few cost-effective upgrades.

AAA recommends these changes to road infrastructure, and claims they could save thousands of lives:

  • Hazardous intersections can be turned into roundabouts, reducing side collisions, and organizing complex intersections to reduce total crashes.
  • Drifting off-road or into oncoming traffic can be reduced by installing shoulder and centerline rumble strips.
  • Accidents involving pedestrians can be prevented by adding crosswalks with signals, like flashing lights to alert drivers.
  • Off-road highway crashes where vehicles cross the divide into oncoming traffic can be prevented by adding median barriers.
  • Collisions with broken-down vehicles and bicyclists can be prevented by widening the paved shoulders of the road.

Whatever road life finds you on, you'll feel more secure if you're behind the wheel of a new Honda. Visit us for a test drive today!
