Are stop signs and red lights becoming obsolete?
The frequency of drivers ignoring stop signs and red lights is alarming in Baltimore Maryland (USA). I’m not talking about someone becoming distracted and not seeing these traffic regulators. I’m referring to the regular practice of drivers cruising through stop signs. I’m talking about 4 or 5 cars proceeding through intersections after the light has turned red.
Is this the consequence of the increase in red light/speed cameras? Has this age of technology, which allows people to achieve instant results, created drivers who are unable to observe safe driving rules?
It’s getting to the point now where I find myself tapping the horn and/or turning on my hazard lights (flashers) prior to proceeding through intersections!
