Each day of the week, the National Coalition for Safer Roads website will focus on the safety concerns associated with red light running. Sunday, August 3 detailed the effects of red-light running, including these two tragic data points:

  • More than 8,700 people were killed in one year by intersection or intersection-related traffic accidents, according to the most recent statistics available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
  • Red-light running is the leading cause of urban crashes, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Messaging from later in the week includes Tuesday's "The Faces of Red-Light Running" and Thursday's focus on local and state statistics for red-light running.
