Red-Light Accidents in California
Intersections are dangerous places due to the high volume of vehicles using them each day. For that reason, cities use traffic signals and stop signs to make them safer for everyone. However, when drivers fail to obey these devices, they risk causing serious accidents.
Red-light runners are responsible for hundreds of deaths each year. 846 people were killed in crashes in 2018 involving drivers who ran a red light. Injured parties should consult with a qualified California car crash attorney to pursue lost compensation for their injuries.
