Stop on Red Week August 2–8

The National Coalition for Safer Roads’ Stop on Red Week is a good opportunity to revisit safe driving techniques and traffic signals.

Many people can be tempted to speed or skip red lights if they’re running late for work or a meeting. In fact, 56% of drivers admit to skipping a red light at least part of the time.

This is risky and dangerous behavior that can have devastating consequences:

  • Motor vehicle deaths hit a spike of 24% in 2020 despite a reduction in miles driven (National Safety Council)
  • In 2018, 846 people were killed and an estimated 139,000 were injured in crashes involving red-light running (NHTSA)
  • About half of red-light running crash deaths involve pedestrians, cyclists and occupants in vehicles hit by the red-light runners (IIHS)

No job or meeting is more important than a life. No matter the hurry, always drive safely within the speed limit and stop on red.
