    Safer Roads Report 2012: Trends in Red-Light Running Safer Roads Report 2012: Trends in Red-Light Running Document Transcript

    • Safer Roads Report 2012 A MESSAGE FROM NCSRThe National Coalition for Safer Roads is pleased to release its first-ever report on trends in red-light running. Weare releasing this report just in time for the highly traveled Memorial Day weekend, which is ranked the number oneholiday weekend for red-light violations.More than 550 communities across the country look to red-light safety cameras to help protect their roadwaysagainst dangerous and distracted drivers. Simply having these life-saving devices out there signals drivers they needto pay closer attention when behind the wheel — and be aware of the cars, cyclists and pedestrians sharing the road.There’s no question that red-light running kills. Intersection-related vehicle accidents caused more than 8,500 casu-alties in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration .The average person takes numerous precautions to ensure they and their families are as safe as possible. This isespecially true for road safety. When purchasing a vehicle, many different factors are considered before hitting theroadways. Air bags, brakes, crash test results, size, seat belts — the list goes on. All of these factors are researchedin detail to guarantee maximum safety. Expectant parents do the same when selecting car seats to protect children.Safer Roads Report 2012: Trends in Red-Light Running is one more resource of valuable information that peoplecan turn to in order to help maximize their safety. It reveals the risky behaviors and tendencies of red-light runnersby analyzing when and where these violations occur. High-level findings include the times of day and the days of theweek when drivers are most likely to run a red light, as well as peaks in violations during major holiday periods.This report is a tool that informs the public about the risks within intersections and helps shed light on the danger-ous driver behavior that threatens our children, families and communities. It is a tool for individuals, organizations,policymakers, municipalities and states, with the details they need to better understand the scope and dangers ofred-light running — and to stand up in their communities and advocate the importance of red-light safety cameras.Sincerely,David KellyPresident and Executive DirectorNational Coalition for Safer RoadsTo find more information about improving 2road safety, visit ncsrsafety.org @SaferRoadsUSA www.facebook.com www.youtube.com /SaferRoadsUSA /user/SaferRoadsUSA

    • Safer Roads Report 2012 KEY TRENDS SUMMARY OF FINDINGS: HOLIDAY RANKINGSRoadways tend to get crowded around the holidays, with people driving to and from gatherings and celebrations. Thisreport looks at the number of red-light running violations on eight different holiday weekends and special eventsthroughout 2011, including the 3-4 days surrounding those holidays to account for high-traffic travel days.When looking at the surrounding weekends leading up to each holiday, Memorial Day weekend proved to be the mostdangerous for intersection safety in 2011. The weekend leading up to Independence Day also ranked as one of the topweekends for red-light running across the 18 states included in this report. Christmas Day alone was the lowest dayin red-light running in all of 2011 with 3,859 violations.OVERALL RED-LIGHT VIOLATIONS BY HOLIDAY TRAVEL PERIODS1.
