How to make Coral Springs Safer from Red Light Runners

Keeping red traffic lights ON longer,  instead of taking a picture, saves lives

Coral Springs, Florida  01/09/2014   When I first started the Coralsprings.com website about 13 years ago,  there was a tragedy at the Coral Springs Drive and Atlantic boulevard intersection, when a red light runner went through the intersection crashing into a car going in the crossing direction. A 3 year old child strapped into a car seat in the rear of the vehicle was killed.  He would have been 16 years old today.  Cameras that we have installed in our city at the intersections to catch red light runners would have only shown the gruesome picture of this accident and done nothing to stop it  from happening.  Making sure that all 4 corners had the red light left on simultaneously for  3  seconds before any change in signal,  and the red light runner would have cleared the intersection. No accident would have occurred and the child would not have died.  more ...... 




Car Traffic Accidents in Coral Springs
A
Safer Time To Drive: Yes!

The Coral Springs Police Department gave us some great data to analyze concerning traffic accidents at our major intersections. We found interesting trends some of which are obvious and others are remarkable. Here are the top Five facts:

  1. Most accidents happen on a Friday compared to other weekdays
  2. Most accidents in Coral Springs occur in the afternoons
  3. The unsafe time to be driving in Coral Springs is 5 pm to 6 pm.
  4. Travelling from 6-7 am is safer then 8-9 am ( leave the house early?)
  5. Leaving after 9:00 a.m. -10 am is safer than 7 - 9 am or 10 - Noon.
So what does all this mean? It means that if you adjust your driving habits or make yourself aware of peak traffic accident times you can decrease your chance of getting into an accident at our intersections ( not eliminate them of course). 

(editor note - Many thanks to CSPD for providing us with the information)
