RED LIGHT RUNS ARE DANGEROUS
The problem is some motorists forget this especially if they are in a hurry. They tend to "speed up" when they say a yellow light instead of slowing the speed of their vehicle to a stop. Or, they will actually speed on through a red light long after the light has turned red - known as a "red light run." Most motorists who do this will tell you they "were in a hurry" but it translates into failure to take responsibility. You cannot trade other drivers safety for the importance of being on time somewhere. Some red light runners do this due to other factors like simply not paying attention or daydreaming while driving. Or, they run the red light because they were distracted by something while driving. Either way, choosing to run a red light, or not seeing a red light can spell disaster to both the red light runner and the other vehicle who crashes due to the act happening at all.

OTHER DANGEROUS CONDITION WITH RED TRAFFIC LIGHTS
Sometimes there are other conditions that may contribute to a red light run and that is the traffic light itself. Yes, although rare, the entire traffic light "may" be defective and cause what is a called a double green light. This means a green light shows in both directions causing or contributing to a car accident. In those types of cases, a traffic light injury lawyer need credible witness testimony, and expert witness testimony as to the light itself being defective. An expert witness can test and monitor the "timing" of the light which may have been the defective part of the traffic light itself. Timing issues, or simple wear and tear of the traffic light or wiring system may be to blame.
