When are you most likely to be involved in a serious - or fatal - car crash?

At a four-way intersection with a traffic light - when someone runs a red.

St Louis County has found a way to keep tabs on twice as many intersections with half the law enforcement officers - and that's good news for everyone but the folks who are driving impaired or distracted and blowing through the red lights.
