Red light running is one of the major causes of collisions, deaths, and injuries at signalized intersections in the U.S. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 20% of drivers do not obey intersection signals.
Crashes caused by red light running result in more than 800 fatalities and 165,000 injuries each year, according to the NHTSA. The economic impact of red light running on society is estimated to be $14 billion annually. Other motorists and pedestrians account for nearly half the deaths caused by red light running crashes.
