Rolling through a red light deadly

According to a recent article by Slate's Steve Casner, rolling right turns on red (and presumably stop signs) are causing 6 percent, and rising, of total pedestrian deaths. Of those, 20 percent are children.

He goes on to say a child is more likely to die when struck by a slow-moving vehicle, as compared with an adult.
