GOOD DRIVING GEM: Expect the unexpected! As you approach intersections, even those controlled by signal lights, expect someone to run the light. Never assume because you have a green light at a major intersection that someone else isn’t paying attention and will run the red light and broadside you. Reduce your speed when entering an intersection and be prepared to apply the brakes and take evasive action to avoid an intersection collision. By expecting it to happen, you will be better prepared to react to it when it does happen. — Jim Luff, LCT contributing editor
