Law enforcement agencies hit the streets for Red Light Running Day

By Denise Wong. CREATED Aug 6, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It's something we've probably all been guilty of, we just hope no one's watching when we do it.

On Wednesday, there will be extra eyes and officers watching out for drivers who run red lights.

City leaders want drivers to obey the law at Maryland Parkway and Flamingo when there's a red light.

Police numbers from last year show it's the second most dangerous intersection in the valley.

Red Light Running Day is being hosted by Sunrise Hospital. A lot of their trauma patients are people who've been hit by cars.

Many happen when drivers speed through a red light. This also puts other drivers at risk.

Officers, safety advocates and hospital workers are taking the streets to remind drivers not to run red lights.
