Red-Light Running Has Many Consequences
Don't Put Others' Lives in Danger - Stop on Red!
Running a red light is something you may see every day - or, may do yourself. But, trying to beat the light and save those few seconds is putting yourself at risk and everyone in and around the roadway - drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians.
Red means STOP!
Simple and straightforward, a red light means you need to stop and stay stopped for as long as the light stays red. SCPD would like to remind everyone to pay attention and focus on safe driving behaviors on the road. That includes stopping at red lights and stop signs, buckling up, obeying speed limits, avoiding distractions and never driving while impaired.
National Stop on Red Week (August 7-13) takes place every August to bring attention to this serious traffic safety issue and promotes safe driving and raises awareness about the dangers of red-light running.
