Red lights are designed to properly manage traffic and keep drivers and pedestrians safe. Most drivers learn about red lights and stop signs before they ever step behind the wheel and typically adhere to the rules of red lights while driving. Those who don’t follow the rules, typically cause serious accidents with severe injuries. By disregarding red traffic lights while driving, the driver is putting their life and the lives of others at risk.
