    This is really disturbing. Traffic rules are for us to follow. The monitoring system hasn't been installed so that you could break the traffic rules and run a red light as the driver in this scenario did. It was entirely the driver's fault but look at the consequence. Three people are dead because of a single person's mistake and carelessness. mercedes repair los angeles
