In 2013, at least 697 people were killed in accidents involving red-light running in the United States while an estimated 127,000 people were injured. The majority of incidents usually occur during peak summer driving periods such as Memorial Day, Independence Day
and Labor Day. 10,700 people were killed at intersections in the United States between 2004 and 2013 while 3.7 million drivers
received a violation for running a red light last year. Houston is the most dangerous city in the United States for running red lights with 181 fatalities from 2004 to 2013, according to the National Coalition for Safer Roads.
