Red-Light Cams About Money, Not Safety

moneymanFrom the Washington Times:

Accidents jumped 43 percent at intersections with traffic cameras the last time Alexandria operated red-light cameras, between 1998 and 2005. That’s according to data compiled by the Virginia Transportation Research Council, a joint venture between the Virginia Department of Transportation and the University of Virginia. Statewide, accidents serious enough to cause injuries increased 18 percent at red-light camera intersections.

Redflex, American Traffic Solutions, Gatsometer, ACS… your jig is up.
