Red means STOP

We collect information to show the Council and Police where people do not follow the rules of the road.

One of the most basic rules not being followed is drivers driving through red traffic lights. This has to stop because red means STOP.  

We want to collect as much data as possible about junctions in Birmingham where drivers are not stopping at red lights. We will publish the results for Car Free Day on 22 September 2023.

You can help by going out and recording what is happening in your local streets between Friday 15 and Monday 18 September 2023.

What you can do to help

You can go to traffic lights where you live, watch how many drivers drive through a red light and keep a record on a piece of paper or your phone. This is called a survey. We recommend you spend 60 minutes if you can, but whatever time you have is fine.

We will send instructions directly to you on how to run a survey at the start of September 2023.

Letting us know you are going to take part

You can use our contact form to tell us which junctions you are planning to survey.

We already have volunteers for these junctions:

Collecting other data in future

We are planning to collect data about pedestrian crossing times this autumn. You can leave your email address when you submit your findings and we will let you know when this begins.
