Do Red Light Cameras Reduce Accidents?


Red Light Traffic Camera Flickr GSBrown99

The first red light camera ticketing system was put in use in New York City in 1993. Since then, 24 states and the District of Columbia have installed red light cameras, while another 15 have banned automated ticketing systems that include red light and speed cameras. You generally don't find that kind of love-hate relationship without something murky going on, and murk is exactly what you step into when you ask this one simple question: Do red light cameras reduce accidents?

That simple question has four answers: Yes, No, Maybe, and It Depends. But it takes a lot of research, a lot of reading, and a lot of money to come to any of these conclusions.

After looking at more than ten studies on both sides of the red light camera argument, the general trends stand up quickly. What is behind them are lots of asterisks and disclaimers, however, such that every one of those four answers is qualified. ...

Wait are you trolling Sermon Audio?

The lights are needed, the cameras are not.

No.

They are the cause of too many accidents.

People slam on their brakes because of them or speed up.
All they are is a money grab.
Also, they are a violation of our rights.

We used to use traffic cameras in order to understand human behaviour. But after we arrived in the solar system, we were able to do Surveillance on the humans minds where we could see and hear their thoughts.

We appologize for the effects it had on the mind of one of your former posters. BTW; we are not the illuminatist.

As far as Traffic Circles. Thats wasn't us. We only do Crop Circles.

Fellow Christian, have you ever heard the word "no thank you"? Is MSM creatively wasting your time with frivolous arguments?

It is about surveillance and money. Greed has three sisters, give me, give me, give me. How can Christians defend the surveillance of fellow human beings on a constant basis? That is really wierd. City gov's can't print money when they have burned it all up, like the feds. and since real economic growth, jobs creation (I mean real jobs that promote the community, such as local farming, selling milk, herbs from land) are being outlawed if not already sent overseas. Since city gov's can't get the taxes they need, they will continue to look for ways to drain the happy jobless citizens.

When I drive into town and see all the cameras pointed down at the cars, it is really creepy. Of course in UK, they are now putting cameras in some familiy homes for the courts to watch, and then there was the recent case of a US school sending kids home with laptops, with cameras, which were turned on (AND WATCHED BY SCHOOL TEACHERS) INSIDE CHIDLREN"S HOMES, surveilling conversations and visuals of the families. Of course the families did not know, and it did end up in court. GOOGLE IT!

The words for all these things is very simple, "No, thank you."

kenny, since red-light cameras are intended to prevent cross-traffic collisions, it would be interesting to know whether these cameras (so to speak) trade one kind of collision for another! We do seem to have a lot of red-light runners here in Tucson. I think many do it deliberately.

Unpleasant though it may be, I would rather be hit in the rear than in the side.

I think I've driven in only one traffic circle - the one in Long Beach near the old Douglas plant. They are more common in Europe.

I ran a red light that had cameras. They sent me a picture of myself in the car, my tag, me going through the red light, and they sent me a picture of a ticket.

Well; I sent them a picture of the money the ticket was for.

They sent me a picture of an arrest warrent.

I paid the actual ticket with actual money.

I had to stop a fellow for not coming to a complete stop at a red light.

He wanted to argue, saying that he slowed down.

But I told him he didn't stop.

He wants to know what's the big difference between Slowing Down and Stopping.

So I pulled him out of the vehicle, and started to beat him with my nightstick.

The I asked him if he wanted me to Slow Down, or to Stop.

Actually the traffic circle idea was tried extensively in the 50's and 60's and while they are now gaining popularity with city planners, they don't work too well with multilane highways with lots of traffic; especially if there are large trucks involved.

The best way to avoid accidents is to drive carefully and soberly.

I'm a traffic engineer. Red light cameras actually increase the number of rear end accidents.

I'm a big fan of roundabouts (a relatively new concept in the U.S.). I believe they should be installed everywhere possible.

Almighty God did not put Adam in a fishbowl, don't think we need to jump into one.

its such an insult to get a ticket in the mail, written out in a foreign country.
