Its hot topic time. Anytime I blog about Red Light Cameras, I get a big response. The folks who comment on this blog are overwhelmingly against them. And that’s your right, because, as with all fairly new technology, their effectiveness hasn’t been completely proven one way or another.
A new study out of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has just been released on red light cameras, with some interesting conclusions. It says they saved 159 lives between 2004-08 in 14 of the biggest US cities.
Here’s a release from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety that breaks down the report data. Or you can watch the Associated Press video summary below. A warning though, you’re going to have to sit through a preview for the new Nicholas Cage movie ‘Drive Angry.’ Shot in 3D of course. Looks like a classic.
