Intersection Sight Distance Requirements

In order for vehicles at intersections to safely cross or make turns onto a through street, adequate sight distance must be provided. Intersection sight distance requirements ensure that an intersection and a certain distance along the intersecting street remain clear of landscaping, fences, signs, buildings, etc. that would obstruct a driver’s view of opposing traffic. These requirements apply to all streets, alleys or driveways that intersect a public collector or arterial street.
