A review of the accident history at red light camera intersections in Hallandale Beach, Florida suggests automated ticketing machines have failed to yield an overall safety benefit since Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions (ATS) began paying for the right to issue tickets and collect fines at a pair of intersections more than two years ago.
[...]The overall number of accidents went up 46 percent with the greatest increase in rear-end collisions. The city side-stepped the negative result and pointed to a reduction in "red light running" crashes as evidence of the program's success, but at least one of the four collisions marked as related to red light running in the before period was caused by an impaired driver. The presence of a camera would not likely have changed the outcome.
