Negligence behind the wheel causes far too many injuries each year on Pennsylvania’s roads and highways. Although an individual driver’s license should embody each driver’s commitment to safety and obeying traffic rules, there are multiple examples of contradictory behavior. From distracted driving to speeding to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the examples of unsafe behaviors abound.
State authorities are also committed to driving safety, as evidenced by an ongoing initiative launched by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Called Automated Red Light Enforcement, the nearly $5.5 million in program funds earmarked for 2016 will go to support programs in 18 municipalities across the state.
