BMW 5 Series: Intersection Warning

Intersections are some of the most likely points for accidents in urban traffic. Statistics tell us that approximately one accident in three, with injury to persons, occurs at an intersection. Accidents here can largely be attributed to distraction or poor estimation by the drivers.

This can significantly reduce the likelihood of an accident or even the severity of an accident at intersections.
