IIHS: Deaths by Red Light Runners up 17 Percent From 2012

According to statistics tracked by the IIHS, deaths due to accidents caused by drivers ignoring red lights increased 17 percent between 2012 and 2016, its most recent year of complete data. 2012 saw 696 total deaths, and was one of only three years since 2000 to see fewer than 700 deaths. 2016’s toll rose to 811, which is the greatest number of red light running deaths since 2007, when 914 were recorded. It claims that more than half of those killed in such accidents are not-at-fault victims, including pedestrians, bicyclists, and occupants of other vehicles.
