    I wonder how many of these accidents are caused by people who are texting or otherwise mentally engaged on something other than driving safety. I admit that I do take calls while I am driving but I never place calls and I never write or respond to texts. It will be interesting to track, over time, the number of accidents at these intersections and the reason(s) for the accidents.
