Sunday, August 3: The Effects of Red-Light Running

Innocent lives are lost every day because drivers recklessly decide to run red lights. We must do everything in our power to protect our children, our families and our communities from the callous and dangerous behavior of red-light runners.

The Effects

  • 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).

Red-Light Running Information Throughout the Year

While Stop on Red Week happens only once a year, new information on the dangers of red-light running and other dangerous driving behaviors comes out all year long. The Safety Street blog is your go-to resource for the latest statistics, infographics, charts and stories in the world of traffic safety and red-light running. Safety Street features crash videos, news roundups and more each week. Bookmark the blog and share with your friends and family to stay up to date on intersection and traffic safety.

Monday, August 4: Get the Facts

New research is rapidly emerging about the behaviors of red-light runners and about the technology available to aid in putting an end to red-light running in communities across the United States.

Safer Roads Report 2014: Trends in Red-Light Running

NCSR released its second biannual report in May that analyzed data collected from 2,216 red-light safety cameras across 20 states to better understand the trends of when red-light violations occur. It found:

  • More than 3.5 million drivers received a red-light violation in across the 20 states studied
  • Drivers most frequently run red lights in the afternoon, with 30.07 percent (1,070,572) of all red-light running violations in 2013 occurring from 1 p.m – 5 p.m.
  • Friday proved to be the worst day for intersection safety in 2013 – safety cameras caught 570,151 total red-light running violations – while Sunday saw the fewest violations, with 439,323 total
  • Memorial Day weekend was the highest ranked holiday travel period, with 39,021 red-light running violations in 2013

Red-Light Running and Distracted Driving

In June of 2013, the National Coalition for Safer Roads (NCSR) and FocusDriven launched a joint campaign effort called Stop Distraction on Red to highlight the dangers of red-light running and distracted driving.

To kick off the campaign, NCSR and FocusDriven conducted a joint analysis examining the impact that distracted driving has on red-light running. Stop Distraction on Red: The Effects of Distracted Driving on Intersection Safety analyzed a sample of 118 intersections in 19 communities across the United States over a three-month period. Using the findings from this sample, researchers estimated that a daunting 7.3 million red-light violations in 2012 involved distracted behavior. The analysis also includes distracted driving-related intersection violation estimates for all 50 states and an examination of the impact of bans on cell phone use while driving.

Tuesday, August 5: The Faces of Red-Light Running

NCSR supporters range from traffic safety officials and community leaders to concerned citizens and victims of red-light running. All are equally passionate about the cause to stop red-light running, but many times the most influential voices are those who have had first-hand experience.

Amanda Devine, is one of those advocates for road safety who has become invested in the cause after personally experiencing the tragic consequences of red-light running.

Amanda was severely injured in 2004 when a dump-truck driver ran a red light and broadsided into her SUV. Amanda suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, lost her spleen and almost lost a kidney. The truck was 12-seconds late going through the intersection. “I want to present my accident to people so they know what can happen,” says Amanda. “I would never want this to happen to someone else.”

Watch Amanda’s testimonial video and share with a friend to spread the important message of always stopping on red.

Wednesday, August 6: Red-Light Safety Cameras – Changing Reckless Driver Behavior

Red-light safety cameras are a critical tool in improving driver behavior and reducing red-light running. Nationwide, 89 percent of drivers who received a ticket issued by a red-light safety camera in 2013 have not received another. In short, the cameras are not only penalizing red-light runners for their reckless behavior, but keeping them from committing the same dangerous acts again.

Below is a state-by-state list of 2013 recidivism rates for all states where American Traffic Solutions

cameras are operated. The percentages represent the number of people who do not receive another ticket after their first red-light safety camera violation.

  • Alabama: 95%
  • Arizona: 97%
  • California: 99%
  • Colorado: 98%
  • Delaware: 98%
  • Florida: 88%
  • Georgia: 98%
  • Illinois: 98%
  • Louisiana: 92%
  • Maryland: 92%
  • Missouri: 91%
  • North Carolina: 95%
  • New Jersey: 89%
  • New York: 81%
  • Ohio: 94%
  • Pennsylvania: 91%
  • Tennessee: 96%
  • Texas: 91%
  • Virginia: 98%
  • Washington: 97%

There are a number of studies that show that red-light safety cameras are working when it comes to reducing the prevalence of red-light running. For example, a study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) discovered that red-light running decreased significantly at intersections with cameras in Arlington, Virginia. The most dangerous violations — those occurring 1.5 seconds into the red light cycle — dropped 86 percent.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently estimated that traffic collisions Americans $871 billion in economic loss and societal harm in 2010. This number includes $277 billion in economic costs – nearly $900 for each person living in the United States based on calendar year 2010 data — and $594 billion in harm from the loss of life and the pain and decreased quality of life due to injuries. The lives saved and crashes reduced by red-light safety cameras (using the 86% decrease from the IIHS study mentioned above, for example) would lead to hundreds of billions of dollars saved and countless lives transformed.
