The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) created the Stop Red-Light Running Program to promote awareness among the public of the hazards of red-light running and to increase enforcement.
A key platform of this effort is National Stop on Red Week, which takes place the first week of August, and during which communities across the country bring national visibility to this deadly traffic problem and step up enforcement efforts.
Since its inception in 1995, the Stop Red-Light Running program has seen a 15% average decrease in red-light running. In 2012, there were over 7 million intersection violations by distracted drivers who most likely ran a red light.
At Sovereign Risk Solutions, we encourage you to educate your employees, friends and family about National Stop on Red week and to always stop on red!
