Seeing red where others don’t? STOP running red lights!
The traffic signal turned yellow, I slowed to a stop. The light then turned red, and a few seconds later, two cars (not just one) in the lane to the left of me sped through. This is not only wrong, it is stupid. Yet, it happens all the time.
City planners wisely have had to bend to this risky behavior by delaying the green/go signals a few seconds to accommodate red-light runners. In many cities, drivers know that being too quick to move on a GREEN light is almost as dangerous as speeding through a red one.
No one should ever be in such a hurry. There are many factors the determine your auto insurance rates. Safe drivers pay less. They are the ones who obey traffic signals.
These are called “accidents,” but they don’t have to happen. Drivers know the rules and ignore them. The result? Florida has been experiencing a higher number of crashes and fatalities.
Make it stop.
