Where's the most dangerous place you can be on a motorbike? Almost half of all bike crashes happen at intersections.
The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) warns motorcyclists should treat intersections as black spots. More accidents involving motorcyclists happen at intersections than anywhere else.
Black spots are not just confined to normal intersections. T-junctions and roundabouts are just as dangerous — even more so during wet, wintery conditions.

The department has committed to improve safety along its transport networks and to provide some practical responses to incidents of object throwing.
The South Australian Government conducted an audit of speed cameras to ensure they are operating for safety purposes and not to raise revenue.
Works to upgrade the intersection of Cross Road, Duthy Street and Harrow Terrace, Kingswood will occur this weekend; Saturday and Sunday, 20 and 21 April.
New traffic lights and more right-hand turn lanes will be added to the junction of Bridge Road and Maxwell Road, in Para Hills, as part of a $7.23 million safety upgrade set to commence on Sunday.
