UNDATED (LEARFIELD) – More than two people are killed every day on U.S. roads by impatient and reckless drivers blowing through red lights. Mark Peterson is with Triple-A Minnesota:
“There were 939 people killed in red light-running crashes in 2017,” said Peterson. “That’s a 10 year high with a 28 percent increase since 2012.”
He adds that he’s concerned.
“This is something that deserves our attention when you look at a body count like that,” said Peterson. “This is very disturbing.”
Peterson says changes in driver behavior is key to reducing the number of red-light running crashes.
