Red Light Accidents
When drivers fail to obey traffic signs and signals, it is often the result of being distracted, fatigued or even intoxicated. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, about 2.2 percent of all the auto accidents in the state were caused by drivers who disregarded a traffic signal. Of those accidents, at least half led to serious injuries and dozens more were fatal.
Running a red light is an all too common act that can have serious consequences. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reports that about half of the victims of red light crashes were not the ones at-fault. Approximately one in three people claim they know someone who has been injured or killed in a red light accident.
Red light accidents are completely preventable. All drivers should stop on red and put their full attention to the task at hand. Distracted driving is often a cause of running a red light.
