“Stop On Red” Week Is Underway

National Stop on Red Week is underway.. What is that exactly? Well, over 7,000 people have been killed by red-light running in the U.S. since 2004, according to the most recent statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

In order to raise awareness about the dangers of running red lights, there’s a group called the National Coalition for Safer Roads (NCSR) that is launching an interactive map during national Stop on Red Week, which takes place August 2 – 8. The map allows users to see the number of fatalities in their area and identify which intersections in their community are the most dangerous.

ABC’s Scott Goldberg joined us from New York to discuss.
