What's happening on Stop On Red Week?

Sunday, August 4: 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 Runners Caught on Video

The Safety Street blog runs a weekly video series aimed at raising awareness about the true dangers of red-light running by highlighting crashes and closes in intersections caused by reckless red-light runners.

Monday, August 5: 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 2012: Trends in Red-Light Running

NCSR released a report in May 2012 that analyzed data collected from 1,240 red-light safety cameras across 18 states to better understand the trends of when red-light violations occur. It found:

  • More than 2.3 million drivers received a red-light violation in across the 18 states studied
  • Drivers most frequently run red lights in the afternoon, with 30.7 percent (719,702) of all red-light running violations in 2011 occurring from 1 p.m – 5 p.m.
  • Friday proved to be the worst day for intersection safety in 2011 – safety cameras caught 378,122 total red-light running violations – while Sunday saw the fewest violations, with 289,603 total
  • Memorial Day weekend was the highest ranked holiday travel period, with 26,787 red-light running violations in 2011 – a more than 27 percent increase in violations than the average weekend

Red-Light Safety Cameras – Changing Reckless Driver Behavior

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducted a recent study in Arlington, VA that discovered red-light running has decreased at local intersections with cameras. The most dangerous violations — those occurring 1.5 seconds into the red light cycle — dropped 86 percent.

Another study conducted by the IIHS looked at 99 large U.S. cities to analyze the impact of photo enforcement on intersection fatality rates. It found:

  • Across the country, more than 150 lives were saved in 14 of the biggest U.S. cities over a five-year period
  • Had cameras been deployed in all major cities between 2004 and 2008, more than 800 deaths could have been prevented
  • Red light safety cameras reduced traffic fatalities by 24 percent
  • After the introduction of red light safety cameras, violations dropped by 40–96 percent

Tuesday, August 6: 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.

NCSR’s President, Melissa Wandall, 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.

Melissa lost her husband to a red-light runner two weeks before she gave birth to their daughter Madisyn. Her tragic loss prompted her to become an advocate for road safety and her efforts resulted in the passage of The Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, implementing uniform standards for red-light safety cameras in the state of Florida. Learn more about her story and how her efforts have helped raise millions for The Miami Project and Florida’s trauma centers to aid victims of motor vehicle accidents. Watch Melissa’s powerful story and share her Stop On Red Week blog post on Safety Street to educate and inspire others about the positive impact she’s had in her local community.

Wednesday, August 7: Red-Light Running and Distracted Driving

The National Coalition for Safer Roads (NCSR) and FocusDriven launched a joint campaign effort in June 2013 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.
