What You Need to Know
At red lights and stop signs, drivers are required to stop. In Louisiana, motorists may make a right turn after stopping at a red light, but doing so requires the motorist to first yield to pedestrians and any other traffic passing through the intersection before making their turn. Vehicles turning right on red lights often cause accidents because they fail to come to a complete stop and yield to oncoming traffic.
Any motorist who fails to stop at a red light or stop sign places creates a great risk for injuries of other motorists and pedestrians. If you have been injured due to the fault of another driver, and that driver ran a stop signal, they will likely receive a citation from police on the scene. This report will help your case because it speaks to the other driver’s negligence and the extent of your injuries. Call our office today for a free case evaluation and discussion of your options.
