Intersection crashes are on the decline, the agency reports.

Fatal Intersection Crashes Declining: NSC

"This report shows that we are making large strides as a nation in reducing crashes at intersections," said Janet Froetscher, president and CEO of the National Safety Council.

A new study issued recently by the National Safety Council reports that fatal crashes at intersections with traffic lights decreased by 17 percent and fatal crashes at intersections involving red-light running decreased by 27 percent from 2005 to 2009.

The study analyzed fatal crash data in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, using statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“This report shows that we are making large strides as a nation in reducing crashes at intersections,” said Janet Froetscher, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “However, despite the improvement there were still 12,396 fatal crashes at intersections with traffic lights, including 4,394 fatal intersection crashes involving red-light running during that five year period. While we are making progress, the 13,266 fatalities from these crashes remind us that we have much more to do. Each of us should consider these statistics and the measures we can take to protect ourselves, our families and our communities.”
