On Thursday, August 6, 2020, Space Coast TPO, Alert Today Florida, and the National Coalition for Safer Roads will promote NationalStop On Red Week, August 2 – 8, 2020.
Across the nation the reckless act of red-light running claims the lives of innocent victims on a daily basis. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), about half of the deaths from red-light running crashes are pedestrians, bicyclists and occupants in other vehicles that are hit by red-light runners, which is featured on NCSR’s Top 10 Reasons to Stop on Red.
In an effort to promote the safety of our most vulnerable road users, team members from Florida’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Coalition will be on the street educating road users of their personal responsibility to use caution as they approach intersections, obey traffic signals, and share the road safely.
