Running Red Lights Is a Leading & Preventable Cause of Car Crashes, Injuries & Death
Traffic signals are vital to the safe flow of roadway travelers at intersections. While many drivers have no problem safely navigating traffic signals, others ignore them, blowing through red lights and seriously increasing the risks of car accidents. In fact, every day in the U.S., at least two people are killed in accidents caused by drivers who ignore traffic signals and run red lights (source: AAA).
When drivers fail to comply with traffic signals and car accidents happen, these negligent motorists may be just one party at fault for the injuries, suffering, and damages victims suffer.

Intoxication, inattention, and drowsiness can prevent motorists from seeing, understanding, and properly responding to their driving environment. When drunk, distracted, or tired drivers approach intersections, there’s are a far greater risk these motorists will end up running a red light and causing a serious crash.
Motorists who are not used to navigating changing traffic signals may misjudge when to stop at versus proceed through yellow lights. Again, that can cause crashes if these inexperienced drivers make the wrong call, confuse other motorists, and/or violate traffic laws.
Aggression and extreme anger on the roads can be blinding, causing cognitive distractions and motivating drivers to behave recklessly behind the wheel. At intersections, that could mean drivers consumed by road rage intentionally run red lights and get into terrible motor vehicle wrecks.
