Running Red Lights Get You Nowhere Fast
Tampa Bay police are cracking down on drivers who run red lights. “It might get you to the next red light,” said Sgt. Glenn Luben who heads the selective traffic enforcement program for the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. “It also might get you in an accident where people are injured or killed.”
I know for a fact that running red lights can injure others. I was seriously injured in a car accident when a woman ran a red light on U.S. 19 totaling my vehicle and breaking my hip, tearing my rotator cuff, collapsing my lung as well as causing other injuries.
Luben said red-light running is out of control. “Red-light runners are the second most dangerous people on the road and only behind drunk drivers,” Luben said.
In today’s world, too many people are in a hurry. This results in bad driving habits, injuries,and deaths. Too often, red-light runner cause rear end accidents where one driver stops and the guy behind him just keeps going.
