I've talked about this before on this site, but it turns out those red light cameras (which are supposedly justified by trying to reduce accidents - but really are just about revenue production), actually increase accidents. While this would seem counter-intuitive, I actually think it is very intuitive. Running a red light rarely ends in an accident because there is a delay in time between the change in light for cross traffic and also, in theory, those drivers look for speeding cars. On the other hand, when someone slams on their breaks at the instant the light turns yellow, bad things happen.

So I say good riddance to these things. The tickets they issue are probably not enforceable anyway.
