Highway ExitWhile drivers frequently consider the highway itself when evaluating risks, dangerous sections of the road are overlooked. Every day, tens of thousands of cars, trucks, and motorcycles access New York State highways through on-ramps, off-ramps, and interchanges. Motorists often fail to take into account how their vehicles may handle highway exits and entrances. Per mile driven, entrance and exit ramps have significantly more car accidents than all other sections of highways. Since off-ramps can be relatively short or sharply curved, drivers should exercise extreme caution when exiting highways. Motorists must also reduce their speeds and prepare for city driving conditions.

A broad spectrum of injuries can arise from collisions involving improper highway exiting, such as traumatic brain injuries, fractured and broken bones, permanent disfigurement, severe neck and back injuries, total paralysis, and even death. Pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver that caused the crash may be the only way to begin to recover and get your life back.

Common Reasons for Highway Exiting Accidents

Highway ExitWhile improper highway exiting accidents can occur for various reasons, most are easily preventable. Becoming familiar with the common causes can help protect you from avoidable crashes. When you are exiting from the highway, be careful of the following:

  1. Changing Lanes Without Signaling: If a driver fails to signal while turning onto the exit ramp, others may not be able to predict his or her movements. Others on the road may not realize the driver is trying to exit and sideswipe them.
  2. Aggressive Driving: Since off-ramps can suddenly come to an end, accelerating to beat the light or driving too fast can make it difficult to react on time and drastically heighten the risk of losing control and crashing. It is also important to avoid cutting off other vehicles.
  3. Poor Roadway Design: Sometimes, off-ramp accidents are caused by poor highway designs. For instance, the off-ramps may be too sharply curved and cause vehicles to roll over or jack-knife. Potholes, debris, and construction can also create hazards for vehicles exiting.
  4. Crossing Over Multiple Lanes: Simultaneously merging over several lanes to reach the exit lane makes it harder for other motorists to notice and react.
  5. Inclement Weather: Bad weather conditions, such as ice, snow, or rain, can make off-ramps extra slippery. Roads are the slickest right when it starts raining. It is important to ensure that your tires have enough treads to handle slippery conditions. Furthermore, heavy rain and snowfall can significantly hinder visibility.



Avoiding Crashing While Exiting the Highway

Even the most experienced drivers can find themselves in unsafe situations caused by careless motorists. Thus, it is important to always take additional protective steps and drive defensively. Some measures that can help to reduce your risk of becoming the victim of an improper highway exit accident include:

  1. Driving the Speed Limit: Driving too fast for the given road conditions can increase the risk of losing control of your vehicle. Driving the speed limit makes it much easier for you to react to dangerous circumstances.
  2. Be Noticeable: Never assume that other motorists see you. Always use your turn signal before exiting to inform other drivers of your plan. Additionally, drive with your headlights on at night and in other low-visibility conditions.
  3. Avoid Distractions: Distracted driving is one of the top causes of all accidents. Stay clear of all unnecessary distractions while driving, such as talking on the phone, texting, eating, or putting on makeup. Drivers must always be aware of their surroundings, especially when exiting highways.
  4. Plan Your Trip: Planning your route can help you get ready to turn onto the off-ramp safely. Too many collisions occur because drivers swerve to avoid missing their exits.
  5. Never Stop in a Moving Lane: Many cars speed on the highway, and it may be difficult for them to stop if you slam on your brakes. If you are about to miss your exit, drive to the next one instead of slamming on the brakes.
