Default Latest Florida Report Shows No Red Light Camera Benefit

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/66/6623.asp

Accidents of all types increased at red light camera intersections in Florida according to state government report.

"After a decade of red light camera use in Florida, officials remain unable to find evidence that the devices have been effective in reducing traffic accidents. A report released Thursday by the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles concluded that the total number of accidents at photo enforced intersections increased 15.1 percent across 31 jurisdictions studied between January 2013 and April 2018. Over the same period, however, the number of vehicle miles traveled across Florida increased 14.7 percent.

"The probability of a crash occurring increases as people drive more," the report noted.

Following the trend seen nationwide, local governments in Florida are rapidly abandoning red light cameras. Five cities dumped automated enforcement last year, leaving 49 jurisdictions with photo ticketing programs -- down from the 75 Florida cities with cameras in 2013."
