Red-light running fatalities that occurred in cities throughout the United States in 2019.
The National Coalition for Safer Roads interactive red-light running fatality map demonstrates that red-light running is dangerous and deadly. According to data from the National Safety Council, 42,060 lives were lost on U.S. roads in 2020. Between 2008 and 2019, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated 9,227 people were killed in crashes related to red-light running. In 2019 alone, more than 840 people died due to red-light running.
Fatalities are mapped to the city and state that each incident occurred. Use the scroll function to zoom into each location down to the intersection in which the red-light running tragedy took place.
The ultimate goal is to honor the lives lost and illustrate the danger of red-light running. The markers represent a life cut too short, family and friends left too soon, and the harsh reality that red-light running can affect anyone on the roadways if more action isn’t taken to prevent reckless driving.
