How to Avoid Red Light Accidents in Tampa Florida

Florida is ranked #3 in the United States for the Top 10 Most Dangerous States for Red-Light Running according to the Suncoast Safety Council. Also according to data from NHTSA, between 2005-2015, an estimated 8,347 people were killed in 7,528 crashes related to red-light running. How can drivers avoid these accidents?

There are many factors that cause a driver to run a red light, the driver could be using their cell phone while driving or speed up to make the light. Many drivers disregard their safety and the safety of others because they are in a hurry to get to their destination and run through the red light. Avoiding these accidents can be achieved in multiple ways.

A big factor is recognizing you are approaching an intersection and the light and come to a stop if at all possible rather than pushing through the light. Controlling your speed can help you drive more efficiently. Maintain the right speed following the speed limit. Green lights are timed for vehicles going at or a little below the speed limit. Intersections are the number one place for crashes to occur. You must always be aware of the drivers around you and find a safe place to stop.
