Green means go. Red means STOP. ?? National Stop on Red Week is August 2nd thru August 8th. Together, we can stop the crashes. Safety is the responsibility of every driver every time they get behind the wheel. According to the National Coalition for Safer Roads, more than 3.5 million drivers ran red lights in 2019. In 2018, 846 people were killed, and an estimated 139,000 were injured in crashes involving red-light running. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) found that about half of red-light running crash deaths involve pedestrians, cyclists and occupants in vehicles struck by the red-light runners.
