Avoid A Connecticut Auto Accident By Stopping At Red Lights

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020 by | Posted In: Auto Accidents

We have all been sitting at a traffic light, patiently waiting for it to turn green. Just when it turns green, a vehicle continues to drive through a light that has turned red. You may be among the lucky drivers who waited a second to lift your foot off the brake. Others are not so fortunate. Data shows a 28% increase in fatalities from red light running since 2012. 

Running red lights is not only dangerous to the driver running the red light, and other motor vehicle operators, but to pedestrians and bicyclists as well. Here are some safety tips to keep in mind as you approach an intersection.

  1. Use caution as you approach an intersection or stop sign.
  2. Stay alert and keep your attention focused on driving, walking, biking. 
  3. Be patient with others who use Connecticut roadways.
