Category: Stop On Red Week

This morning, National Coalition for Safer Roads launched an interactive Red-Light Running Fatality Map, which showcases the 7,799 red-light running fatalities that happened throughout the United States between 2004-2013, according to recent NHTSA data, and the very intersections where they occurred. The map also shows the top ten most dangerous U.S. cities for red light running.
The fatalities are mapped to the city and state that each incident occurred, all the way down to the actual intersection where someone’s life was taken by a collision involving red-light running. Through its search function, the map allows viewers the opportunity to find out how many red-light running fatalities occurred in a particular city.

With the map, NCSR is encouraging people who have been personally affected and lost loved ones in these types of traffic collisions to share their stories on NCSR’s Facebook page.

In addition, NCSR hopes to mobilize others across the nation to share the map on social media, change their profile pictures to the Stop on Red icon and pledge to Stop on Red by signing the petition. They are also asking people to show their support via social media using the hashtag #StoponRed2015.

The Safety Street weekly video series aims to raise awareness about the dangers of red-light running by highlighting crashes and close calls in intersections caused by reckless red-light runners. The videos are also available on Twitter @SaferRoadsUSA and YouTube youtube.com/SaferRoadsUSA.
