National Stop on Red Week

The Panama City Police Department will join the Florida Department of Transportation and law enforcement agencies to raise awareness of the dangers of running red lights during National Stop on Red Week, which runs until Saturday August 11th.

According to a Department of Transportation Safety Administrator, Florida ranks near the top of the list of states for intersection crashes and a third of those are caused by running red lights.

According to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in 2005, the last year for which statistics are available, there were 96 fatalities and 6300 injuries in Florida as a result of people running red lights.
