Default Councilman: “Cameras Increase Accident Rates”

Camera Fraud Article: Councilman: “Cameras Increase Accident Rates”


goodjobLoma Linda, California may become the latest municipality to end dangerous automated ticketing schemes within its jurisdiction.


The city has about a year left with beleaguered, faux-Arizona-based Redflex Traffic Systems. Of Australia.


The city’s experiment with red-light cameras may be coming to an end.Nearly four years after the cameras were put in at four intersections, the City Council is looking at the possibility of removing them.


The council has directed staff members to investigate its options for terminating its five-year contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, the Arizona-based company that operates the cameras. The contract expires in a little more than a year.


Councilman Rhodes Rigsby gave a presentation to his colleagues last week, challenging the view that the cameras have cut down on accidents caused by red-light runners.



“Most well-conducted studies show that red-light cameras increase overall accident rates,” Rigsby said.
