MDOT Supports National Stop on Red Week

JACKSON, MISS. – Innocent lives are lost every day when drivers recklessly decide to run red lights. The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) supports National Stop on Red Week, held August 2-8, to remind drivers that running a red light is never worth the dangerous consequences.

According to data from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), a total of 7,799 lives were lost from red light running between 2004 and 2013 across the nation.  In 2013 alone, 697 people were killed and an estimated 127,000 were injured in crashes that involved red light running.

The aggressive driving that typically precedes red light running is completely preventable. A survey asked drivers to speculate why motorists ran red lights, and the majority guessed that they were in a hurry. However, MDOT wants to remind drivers that the danger outweighs whatever pressing issue that driver may be facing.

“The time saved by avoiding a red-light is not worth the potential cost in human lives,” said MDOT executive director Melinda McGrath. “Please use caution when traveling through intersections, especially near work zones.”

THE MOVING WALL COMING TO YAZOO
July 28, 2015
 

The Moving Wall in Yazoo County, Mississippi
October 29 - November 2, 2015

THE MOVING WALL

"The Moving Wall" is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for thirty plus years.  When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of the "The Wall."  He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.

John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall.  It went on display for the first time in Tyler Texas in October 1984.  Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.
