'Stop On Red Week' sheds light on dangers of running red lights

Deadly driving dangers: Running red lights

Dallas has been named the seventh most dangerous city in the nation when it comes to drivers running red lights.

An interactive map released by the National Coalition for Safer Roads shows how prevalent the problem is. The map lets you see which intersections in your neighborhood are the most dangerous.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, between 2000 and 2009, an average of 885 people per year died in red-light running fatalities. The National Coalition for Safer Roads claims there were 7,799 red-light running fatalities across the country from 2004 to 2013.

To help combat the issue, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has deemed this week "Stop On Red Week."
