Sensys America celebrates National Stop on Red Week beginning August 6th to 12th by encouraging all drivers to pay special attention to slowing down at intersections and stopping at red lights.
During Stop on Red Awareness Week, Sensys America is hoping for a Zero Fatality week.

It’s passengers and drivers of other cars, as well as pedestrians and cyclists, who suffer from this self-centered behavior.

- Where right turn on red is allowed, make a full stop before turning right.
- Look both ways before entering an intersection, even on a green light.
- Signal Every turn.
- Yield to other drivers and to bicyclists and pedestrians.
Being rushed and distracted by other things are some of the causes for red light running. This Stop On Red week, we ask drivers to remember, when…
