 Intersecting Lines:  Two lines that cross each other. Lines intersect at one point unless the lines fall directly on top of each other (in which case they are essentially the same line and are sometimes called coincidental).
This sign represents the intersection of two streets. The streets can be thought of as intersecting lines. In this case, the streets intersect perpendicularly.
