Accidents Caused by Failing to Obey Traffic Signals May Lead to Death
Traffic signals are designed to regulate traffic and ensure all drivers understand where and when to proceed. They attempt to streamline the flow of traffic while maintaining safety on the road. However, drivers who fail to obey traffic signals might cause accidents, injuries, and even death.
According to the Insurance Information Institute (III), failing to obey traffic signals resulted in tens of thousands of accidents in 2018. Running a red light is a common example of how a driver might disobey a traffic signal, and it can be a deadly risk to take. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), 846 people died in car accidents caused by a driver who ran a red light.
If you were injured in an accident that was caused by another driver who failed to obey traffic signals, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
