Red Light Violation

Red Light ViolationIntersection-related accidents are responsible for hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries each year. Drivers who disregard traffic signals and run red lights are responsible for many of these accidents. Statistics available from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDoT) indicate that more than 18,000 accidents occurred due to drivers failing to stop at red lights or stop signs on Texas streets and highways. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that about half of the fatalities in these cases involved pedestrians or drivers who were proceeding through an intersection in compliance with the law. For those injured due to a red light automobile accident, pursuing a Houston auto accident claim may be the only way to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions and to achieve closure on these serious incidents.

Facts about Red Light Accidents

According to statistics compiled by the Federal Highway Administration, drivers who fail to stop at red lights are responsible for approximately 165,000 injuries each year. Over the last 10 years, almost 9,000 people lost their lives in accidents resulting from drivers who disregarded red light traffic signals. The National Coalition for Safer Roads is a vocal advocate for safety cameras at busy intersections and found that red light violations occurred over 2 million times in the 18 states and 142 cities evaluated.
