Default 2012 Study: Red Light Cameras Cause Traffic Jams

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/49/4943.asp

Maryland researchers conclude that red light cameras have a huge negative impact on intersection traffic flow.

"Local officials attribute many benefits to the use of red light cameras, but they rarely mention any negative side effects. A 2012 paper by Maryland researchers documented a downside -- an increase in congestion at intersections where automated ticketing machines are in use.

"Given the continuous monitoring of intersections by red light cameras, the cumulative impact of capacity reduction may be huge," the researchers found. "The capacity loss at red light camera intersections can be considered significant given the fact that the number of red light cameras used to monitor for red light running behavior are increasing nationwide.""
