Do red light camera enforcement systems reduce accidents?

Do red light camera enforcement systems reduce accidents?

do red light camera enforcement reduce accidentsIn the past ten years city and county government agencies have gone on a rampage to install red light camera enforcement systems in their jurisdictions. The official reason for the installation of the red light camera systems given by all agencies is safety. The big claim is that the red light camera enforcement systems reduce accidents at intersections. However, this is not entirely the truth. While there have been some reductions in the right angle accidents, according to a number of studies conducted by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the overall accident rate at intersections enforced by red light camera enforcement system has stayed the same or increased. This is due to the increase in the rear end accidents at all study locations.

 How can I use "Do red light camera enforcement systems reduce accidents?" in a red light ticket defense?

The statistics from accident rates at intersections where there is a red light camera system can be used in a defense statement as part of an overall demonstration that the system was installed solely to generate revenue. The reason that this argument may help to dismiss the red light camera ticket is to show that the system is set up to put people in a position to fail for profit of the governmental agency.
