RACQ research shows Gold Coasters run the most red lights in QLD

New RACQ data has revealed the Gold Coast Highway and Margaret Avenue intersection at Broadbeach has the most red light offences in the state.

There were more than 1600 fines at these locations in the last year and RACQ’s Lauren Ritchie said on average more than 82 red lights were run each day on the Coast.

“It’s a complete disregard for road safety and there’s no reason to take an unnecessary risk,” she said.

“Too many motorists are choosing to run a yellow light to gain a few extra seconds, and with more than 150 lives already lost on Queensland roads this year, motorists need to change this behaviour.

“Yellow means stop if it’s safe to do so, not go faster.”
