Why do people run red lights?

In many cases, people run red lights because they’re in a rush. In other cases, they completely forgot to look at the traffic light, or maybe they were distracted or driving while under the influence and became confused. Regardless of the cause, too often, when someone runs a red light they hit a pedestrian or have a collision with another vehicle at an intersection.

One would think that red light accidents are open and shut cases, but this is not true when it comes to insurers. They will often try to blame you for your injuries one way or another or even claim the light was green.
