Safer Roads Report 2014: Trends in Red-Light Running

48,102 views

Published on

NCSR has released its second biannual Safer Roads Report 2014: Trends in Red-Light Running to raise awareness among drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians of the dangers of red-light running. The report finds that more than 3.5 million drivers in 20 states ran a red light last year. By examining red-light running trends across 2,216 red-light safety cameras in 202 areas, NCSR provides a useful tool for the public to understand the times of the day, days of the week, and holidays when people are most commonly running red lights.

Following our initial release in 2012, our second issue of the bi-annual report includes data gathered during all of 2013, exposing similar trends in red-light violations on our roadways. In anticipation of the Memorial Day weekend — one of the most highly trav- eled holiday periods — we are releasing this informative report to share our results on this important public safety issue. Once again, Memorial Day has ranked as the number one holiday travel period for highest number of red-light violations. Hundreds of communities throughout the United States look to red-light safety cameras to help protect their roadways against dangerous and distracted drivers. Having these life-saving devices enabled on their roads encourages drivers to pay closer atten- tion when behind the wheel — and to be aware of the cars, cyclists and pedestrians sharing the road. And for good reason… Red-light running is often fatal. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that 43 percent of motor vehicle crashes occur at intersections or are intersection-related. In 2011 alone, intersection-related collisions caused more than 8,500 casualties, ac- cording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. As a wife and a mother, I have felt the pain of these unnecessary and avoidable fatalities. My husband, Mark Wandall, was killed by a careless red-light runner when I was nine months pregnant. Our daughter has never known her father and I will forever feel his absence in our lives. I hope that this report will raise awareness of the risks of red-light running and encourage all who share the road to exercise caution near intersections. The Safer Roads Report 2014: Trends in Red-Light Running serves as a tool for people to maximize their safety when travelling on the roadways. This valuable resource exposes common risky behaviors and tendencies of red-light runners. Our report analyzes when and where violations typically occur and provides summarized high-level findings with easy-to-grasp figures. We include results identifying the times of day and days of the week when drivers are most likely to run a red light, as well as peaks in viola- tions during major holiday travel periods. This report exposes the dangerous behavior of some drivers and the safety issue it poses to our children, families and communi- ties. It is a resource for individuals, organizations and decision makers at all levels. It provides details to understand the scope and dangers of red-light running — and exposes striking evidence to help concerned communities advocate the use of red-light safety cameras. Sincerely, Melissa Wandall President National Coalition for Safer Roads A MESSAGE FROM NCSR

Safer Roads Report 2014 To find more information about improving road safety, visit NCSRsafety.org 3 @SaferRoadsUSA www.facebook.com /SaferRoadsUSA www.youtube.com /user/SaferRoadsUSA Given the evidence of significant numbers of red-light viola- tions, one of the most effective ways for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to protect themselves against this safety issue is by improving their awareness of when it is most likely to occur. While red-light safety cameras can help to catch offenders and make everyone — from drivers to pedestrians — more cautious on or near the road, red-light running is a continuing public safety hazard in all of the analyzed municipalities and states. This report examined the frequency of violations by the day of the week. Friday proved to be the worst day for intersection safety in 2013 — safety cameras caught 570,122 total red-light violations. Sunday saw the fewest violations, with a total of 439,323 red-light runners. On travel days surrounding major holidays, Memorial Day weekend ranked first in violations, with a total of 39,021. For 2013, Halloween proved to be the holiday period with the low- est violations, with 28,902. The analysis found that drivers most frequently run red lights in the afternoon (defined as 1:00-5:00 p.m.). Overall, nearly one-third of all red-light running violations (1,070,572, or 30.07 percent) occurred during this period. The late night hours saw the fewest number of violations, with only 9.92 percent (353,178) of all violations occurring in the period from 10:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m. Four of the states analyzed saw fewer violations occur during the night hours (7:00-10:00 p.m.), but neither trend comes as much of a surprise as roadways con- tain far fewer drivers during the later hours. The report analyzed data from 2,216 red-light safety cameras in operation from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013. The cameras were located across 202 areas in 20 states (see page XX for report methodology). In total, the red-light safety cameras captured 3,560,724 violations. On average, each camera recorded 1,607 violations during the year. The average day saw a massive total of 9,755 violations. Making comparisons based on simple totals is tricky since the number of cameras and populations relative to each area vary widely between the areas analyzed. However, an examination of the simple totals can give us a quick idea of which states utilize red-light safety cameras most. After careful examination, the data points to an obvious conclusion. Any time you get behind the wheel or step into a roadway there is a very real risk of encountering a red-light violator. Red-light safety cameras are a valuable tool to promote road- way safety and improve driver behavior. Knowing the cameras exist and understanding the informative data will lead to better awareness about this critical public safety issue and promote more careful and courteous driving all around. With this resource, we will work to reduce red-light violations and improve road safety — meaning fewer collisions, fewer injuries and fewer deaths resulting from someone’s poor and reckless decision to run a red light.

This report evaluates the number of red-light running violations on seven different holiday weekends and special events during 2013. It includes the three-to-four days surrounding each holiday in order to get the best representation of these high-traffic days. When looking at the surrounding travel periods leading up to each holiday, Memorial Day weekend proved to be the most danger- ous for intersection safety in 2013, as it had been in 2011. The weekend surrounding Independence Day also ranked as one of the top holiday periods for red-light running across the 20 states included in this report. Of the seven periods analyzed, Halloween had the fewest red-light violations. OVERALL RED-LIGHT VIOLATIONS BY HOLIDAY TRAVEL PERIODS 1. Memorial Day (Friday, May 24 – Monday, May 27 ) – 39,021 2.

Safer Roads Report 2014 To find more information about improving road safety, visit NCSRsafety.org 31 @SaferRoadsUSA www.facebook.com /SaferRoadsUSA www.youtube.com /user/SaferRoadsUSA TOTAL NUMBER OF CAMERAS: 2,216 TOTAL NUMBER OF AREAS: 202 TOTAL NUMBER OF STATES: 20 TOTAL POPULATION STUDIED: 25,037,825 For this report, data was collected for all American Traffic Solutions red-light safety cameras that were operational for the entire year of 2013. The data was analyzed at the state and municipality levels to identify trends concerning the time of day and day of week for red-light running violations. Trends were also identified using the red-light violation data collected on key holiday travel periods throughout the year. These results were compiled using the following totals and reflect only the red-light safety camera statistics for the specific regions addressed in this report. The National Coalition for Safer Roads (NCSR) supported the research and creation of the first Safer Roads Report 2012: Trends in Red-Light Running. This year’s report, Safer Roads Report 2014: Trends in Red-Light Running, examines data gathered for the entirety of 2013 that was analyzed to provide insight into trends from the last year. NCSR was organized as an industry trade association with the express purpose of advocating on behalf of the traffic safety technology industry. NCSR is proud to advocate the use of red-light safety cameras in more than 600 communities across the country to change reckless driver behavior, stop red-light running and save lives. NCSR is supported by American Traffic Solutions, with coalition partners including the National Safety Council, Safe Kids USA, Child Safety Network, National Organizations for Youth Safety, America Walks and Red Means Stop, as well as numerous police departments, medical professionals, safety advocates, industry leaders, community leaders and concerned citizens.
