Here in Wyoming, we are the 4th WORST out of 50 states.

Rate of driving-related deaths per population of 100,000: 16.7
Wyoming is within the top four states in the U.S. for a high share of car owners running red lights and stop signs. However, it is also the first state of our top 10 rankings to not implement the use of red-light cameras. This raises the question of whether or not the state would have fewer drivers illegally running through intersections if communities installed red-light cameras.
