Red-light running is a serious intersection safety issue in the San Fernando Valley and across the nation. Indeed, a recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicates that in the last period of time surveyed, there were more than 2.3 million reported intersection-related crashes, resulting in more than 7,000 fatalities and approximately 733,000 injury crashes. Over 700 deaths were caused by a driver running a red light. In other words? The auto accidents that result from a driver running a red light are serious. If you or a loved one have been injured in such an accident, contact an experienced personal injury attorney.
Sadly, one in 3 people claim they personally know someone injured or killed in a red-light running crash. This number is way too high and serves as a reminder of the importance of driving safely and following the rules of the road.
