762 people killed in 1 year by red-light runners

Most drivers in New York have seen someone run a red light. This rule violation is rampant nationwide. The 2008 Traffic Safety Facts report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated that drivers running red lights directly caused 762 fatalities in that year. In the same year, 2.3 million crashes occurred at intersections, killing 7,770 people and injuring well over 700,000 people.

Determining fault in autonomous car crashes

Although autonomous cars are not yet available in New York or any other state, many automakers and other companies are working on developing this technology. A car that could drive itself may reduce the odds of an accident significantly, as it has been estimated that 94 percent of accidents are attributed to human error. However, there is still cause for concern about the remaining number.
