LIST OF TABLES
Red light running and crashes attributable to red light running by motorists may result from a number of contributing
factors and, consequently, may be addressed by a variety of countermeasures encompassing engineering improvements, enhanced driver and public education, and increased enforcement. The red light running problem at any intersection needs to be investigated and the feasibility of all countermeasures including increased enforcement should be addressed through an engineering study.
Investigating Intersection Safety
A systematic approach to the collection and analysis of intersection crash data is required for the identification of intersections where there is a high incidence of red light running and for the investigation of countermeasures.
