  4. 4 – Second Danger Zone Situations Approaching every intersection and

    any line-of- sight or path of travel problem/hazard: a parked vehicle, stopped traffic ahead, curve, hill crest, a vehicle entering traffic crossing the path-of- travel, a pedestrian etc. Making a lane change Passing a vehicle Stopping in traffic
  5. What’s an Intersection? That place where two or more roads

    come together. Can be any shape Usually controlled Traffic signs and/or signals present on one or more sides Sometimes uncontrolled No traffic signs or signals present on any side
  6. They Can Be Any Shape

  7. Controlled & Uncontrolled Controlled Intersections have lights and/or signs which

    assign yielding responsibilities Uncontrolled Intersections have no lights or signs. The rules of the road assign yielding responsibilities.
  8. Controlled or Uncontrolled? Explain the yielding responsibilities where prompted. Turning

    left yield to… Turning left yield to…
  9. Controlled Controlled or Uncontrolled? Explain the yielding responsibilities. Turning left

    yield to… Turning left yield to…
  10. Remember These? FIND Intersections in the Target Area Range SOLVE

    & CONTROL in the 15-Second Range Path-of-travel and/or line-of-sight problems. Get the best speed, position and communicate. CONTROL the 4-Second Danger Zone Reevaluate with 45°or 90°searches to control problems. Be prepared to adjust speed, position and communication before you occupy that space.
  11. Brainstorm What are some clues that will help you to

    see that you are approaching an intersection?
  12. Which clues are easy to see in the target area?

    Fir Street Road Markings Arrows Crosswalks, Stop lines Break in center line Cross Traffic Which might be more visible in the 15-second range or 4-second danger zone? Signs & Signals
  13. Where are the intersections located and what shape are they?

  14. Where are the intersections located and how are they controlled?

  16. Every path-of-travel restriction temporarily or permanently blocks your ability to

    occupy space. • Traffic controls Signs, lights & markings • Intersection shape • Pedestrians • Vehicles Stopped, parked & moving Intersection Path-of-Travel Problems
  17. Are danger zones. Each blocks your ability to gather information

    about the condition of your intended path-of-travel. • Vehicles • Buildings • Fences • Trees, bushes • Elevated terrain • Signs, billboards Intersection Line-of-Sight Problems
  18. What do you search for? While stopped at the front

    limit search deep 90° to the left, to the front & 90° to right. Open, closed, and unstable conditions: approaching traffic, cyclists, and all corners for pedestrians How do you search this intersection?
  19. While moving search deep 45° to the left, to the

    front & 45° to right. LP-2 or 4, cover brake What lane position gives you the best view? Best speed control option? How do you search and what do you search for? Open, closed and unstable conditions: all corners for pedestrians, approaching traffic and cyclists
  20. Where are the intersections located? What are the line-of-sight hazards?

  21. The truck is stopped for no obvious reason. Pedestrians in

    crosswalk Oncoming traffic Cross traffic Best Speed? Best Lane Position? Your front zone is unstable. Why is it important to control this space before reaching the point of no return? What could be hidden? LP1 Apply brake

  23. You CONTROL These Danger Zones Find Solve Control Search

  24. Are your front zones open closed or unstable? When your

    foot goes on the brake check the rear!
  25. Are your front zones open closed or unstable? What other

    zones should you check before using the gas?
  26. Are your front zones open closed or unstable? What other

    zones should you check at this moment?
  27. 27 Are your front zones open closed or unstable? How’s

    the rear zone?
  28. Summary Use organized searching to FIND, SOLVE & CONTROL EVERY

    intersection line-of-sight and path-of-travel problem before entering. Always search the left, front and right zones for open, closed, and unstable zone conditions: Search at 45° where no stop is required Search deep at 90° when stopped Search all corners for pedestrians Be sure your path is OPEN before entering Before your foot goes on the brake check rear zone conditions.
