There is no excuse for running a red light. The understanding of a red light to mean “stop” is universal. Running a red light puts everyone in the vicinity in immediate danger. Motorcycle riders are at particular risk because they have no protection surrounding them, unlike people in cars or trucks.
If a motorcycle rider is rear-ended by a driver who runs a red light, the possibility of a neck injury, spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury increases considerably. If you or someone you love has been in a serious accident caused by a driver who ran a red light, be sure that you talk to an experienced Chicago red light motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible.

Accidents involving drivers who run red lights are especially dangerous because the vehicle is often moving at full speed during impact. In the majority of these cases, the driver is either trying to speed through an intersection or is distracted and not paying attention to the road ahead. In either case, the driver will often not have an opportunity to hit the brakes before impact.
