The Village of Lakemoor Encourages Drivers to “Be Safe: Stop on Red” 

63% of all Americans will witness a red-light running incident more than once each week, according to a survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the American Trauma Society.

Intersection-related vehicle accidents caused more than 8,700 casualties in 2012, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
One in three Americans knows someone who has been injured or killed in a red light running crash.

Traffic crashes are the single, most significant cause of preventable death and injury in North America.

Intersections represent a disproportionate share of public safety problems on roadways. In fact, motorists are more likely to be injured in urban crashes involving red light running than in any other type of motor vehicle accident. Unlike collisions in which drivers have no control of the outcome, those caused by red light running can be prevented.

The Village of Lakemoor in partnership with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is committed to increase roadway safety, especially at intersections. Red light enforcement systems are installed at the intersection of Route 120 and US 12 monitoring northbound, westbound and eastbound.

In order to educate and inform the community about this important safety initiative, we are launching a public awareness campaign,
“Be Safe: Stop on Red”. Remember, lives depend on it!
