National Stop on Red Week, August 6-12, serves as an important reminder of the dangers we face on our roads and the responsibility we all hold to Stop on Red.
Between 2008 and 2021, an estimated 11,296 people were killed in crashes related to red-light running.
Using the theme “Zero in on Red”, the week-long event highlights the importance of road safety education, traffic safety legislation and enforcement technology.
“Due to my own family’s tragic experience with drivers who disregard red lights, I possess an immense passion for road safety,” Melissa Wandall, President of National Coalition for Safer Roads. “This passion has fueled my tireless efforts as a traffic safety advocate to explore all safety tools available to reduce fatalities on our roads. Automated enforcement such as red-light safety cameras can serve as one of many critical mechanisms to deter dangerous driving behavior and reduce injuries and fatalities associated with red-light running. National Stop on Red Week is an important reminder that safety is everyone’s responsibility and together, we can protect our communities by always stopping on red.”
