How to use "Intersection" in context?

Intersection is defined as the point at which two or more paths or roads cross. It usually occurs when two roads meet at a T-intersection and the two roads share a common edge. Many intersections are controlled by traffic signals, depending on the traffic volume.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 45% of all traffic fatalities occur at intersections. Many of these fatalities are the result of collisions between two or more vehicles that were going in opposite directions.

To help prevent these collisions, it is important to know the basic rules of the intersection.
