FORT MYERS, Fla. - Police are scouring the nation to write tickets for red light runners. It's all a part of National Stop on Red Week.

We rode along with FHP today to hot spots in Lee County as troopers wrote tickets.

They say it's more important than ever with distracted driving. More than 5,000 people are hurt from red light runners every year in Florida, and 56 people die.
