Responding to red-light runners with cameras, defensive driving

Red-light running crashes resulted in a 10-year high in fatalities with 939 people dying in them in 2017. California residents should know that more than two people die every day in this country in red-light running crashes. Yet a AAA Traffic Safety Culture Index shows that there is a disconnect between what drivers think and what they do. Eighty-five percent acknowledged that red-light running is wrong, yet nearly a third admitted to doing it in the past 30 days.

Survey: Most drivers use phones behind the wheel

California drivers of all ages continue to drive while using their phones to send texts and emails or browse the internet. Despite widespread campaigns highlighting the dangers of distracted driving, people continue to take their minds and eyes off the road in order to pay attention to their smartphones. A survey by Liberty Mutual Insurance highlighted that drivers across the country consider themselves to be safe drivers while engaging in unsafe behaviors. Almost all respondents to the Multi-National Distracted Driving Survey, 98%, said that they consider themselves to be safe drivers. At the same time, they admitted to a number of unsafe activities. Almost half of the respondents regularly admitted driving while distracted.
