Every time you have to make a left turn on the road you are at risk of being hit. Left-hand turns are far more dangerous than right-hand turns. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHSTA), left turns are a major factor behind a good amount of car accidents in the country. Approximately 22% of all accidents reported have a vehicle that is making a left turn while 53% of all cross-path incidents are due to dangerous left-turns. Not even 6% of accidents are the result of right-turns.
