Mission Statement

Red Means Stop is an organization of victims and safety advocates, comprised of mothers, fathers, children and people like YOU! Our goal is to save lives and prevent motor vehicle crashes that injure and kill drivers, passengers and pedestrians.

Description

The Red Means Stop Traffic Safety Alliance works to increase public awareness of the consequences of motor vehicle crashes that injure and kill drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

In January 1999, three families who incurred the consequences of red light runners founded The Red Means Stop Coalition. RMSC founding families, Hinds, Marquis and Philippi came together in late 1998 to begin forming the Coalition, dedicated to their children, Jennifer Hinds, Sam Marquis and Krystal Philippi.

Red Light runners caused both incidents leaving Jennifer, Sam and Krystal as innocent victims. Jennifer and Krystal both suffered traumatic brain injuries, common in these kinds of side impact crashes. While Jennifer did not survive, Krystal, who remained in a coma for nearly 10 weeks, has battled back and is recovering. Sam has also recovered.

The Red Means Stop Coalition is the only known grassroots organization of its kind in the United States. Our long-term goal is to have the message about the dangers and consequences of red light running spread throughout the country until red light running is significantly reduced everywhere.
