Red-light safety cameras helped save more than 150 lives in 14 of the biggest U.S. cities from 2004 to 2008. If the cameras had been operating in all 99 U.S. cities with populations more than 200,000, more than 800 lives could have been saved! The National Coalition for Safer Roads has created the video below showing just how tragic the consequences of running a red light can be.

I hope you’ll visit the National Coalition for Safer Roads on their website, Twitter and Facebook pages for more information about this important initiative to stop red-light running. It could save the life of a loved one or spare a family the heartbreak of losing a life to a tragic intersection accident. And please drive safely this holiday weekend. Don’t run red lights!
