State Officials Reveal Increased Accidents With Red-light CamerasJanuary 5th, 2017 by Lancaster & Eure, P.A.
As the debates begin to ramp up in the legislature over the effectiveness of red-light cameras, a new report reveals increased accidents at intersections with red-light cameras.
After reviewing 148 intersections in 28 cities across Florida, it was found that accidents increased by 10% compared to accidents before the red-light cameras were installed. The report does reveal some decreases in certain accidents, such as those involving non-motorists were down about 20%. However, the debate still continues over whether red-light cameras are helping to keep Floridians safe or are they merely acting as cash creators for the state.
