Sensys America Supports Stop On Red Week, August 4-10SENSYS AMERICA RAISES AWARENESS OF SAFE DRIVING HABITS DURING STOP ON RED WEEK
Sensys America Hopes for Zero Fatality During Stop On Red Week
ORLANDO, FL (August 2, 2019) – Sensys America supports Stop on Red Week August 4th to 10th. Sensys America provides advanced technology for traffic safety enforcement including red light camera photo enforcement across the US and internationally. Red light camera photo enforcement has been shown to change people’s driving habits in the locations where they are installed.
The Federal Highway Administration created the Stop On Red campaign in 1995 and yet, in 2017, 890 people were killed in the United States in crashes that involved red light running.
Studies show that red light cameras are an effective way to discourage red light running since it's impossible for police to be at every intersection. In this way, photo enforcement cameras can fill the void. Red light cameras improve traffic safety for all road users and are placed where they can benefit a community, like at intersections with high numbers of fatalities, accidents or the potential of these because of a high number of red light running.
Sensys America President and CEO Carlos Lofstedt says, “We are proud to provide technology to save lives every day. Automated Enforcement is an effective way to educate people. Only a few percent are repeat offenders.”
Speed plays a large role in whether or not someone will run a red light. Here are some suggestions:
• Slow down when approaching an intersection and Stop On Red. • Where right turn on red is allowed, make a full stop before turning right. Signal Every turn. • Look both ways before entering an intersection, even on a green light. • Yield to other drivers and to bicyclists and pedestrians.
Stop On Red week brings awareness of people’s driving habits to the forefront, something Sensys America does every day through red light camera photo enforcement, which has been shown to change people’s driving habits in the locations where they are installed.
