In the United States, motor vehicle accidents are the most frequent cause of personal injuries. Nearly 2 million people are injured in motor vehicle crashes annually. Approximately 36,000- 40,000 individuals die annually due to injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident.

Car accidents are one of the leading factors of injury deaths in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017. Side impact car accidents most commonly occur in the middle of intersections due to people’s failure to yield at a stop sign or red light.

Running a red light may seem like a minor traffic violation, but it can cause serious accidents and result in major injuries and damages. In 2019, an estimated 143,000 people were injured in red-light running crashes. All drivers are encouraged to follow traffic rules and to practice patience wherever they’re driving.
