Red light cameras increase accidents
<b>Camera Fraud Article: Red light cameras increase accidents</b><br/><br/><p>Channel 2 news (KCBS/KCAL) in Los Angeles did some excellent investigative reporting on the impact of red light cameras in LA. The LA Police Department claims that the red light cameras make the streets safer, but the investigative reporters looked at the data themselves and came to the opposite conclusion: red light cameras actually <em>increase</em> accidents. Check out the entire report in the video below.</p>

<p>When they contacted the LA PD, the department became very defensive, telling Channel 2 reporters “The City would hope it’s the goal of KCBS/KCAL to discuss the positive aspects of the City’s Automated Photo Red Light Program.”</p>
<p>The LA PD then charged the news outlet over $500 to access crash data at LA intersections, after receiving a Public Information Records Request.</p>
<p>Channel 2 news analyzed crash data before cameras were installed and afterwards. They found that most intersections had accidents increase, by up to 3 times the amount of accidents that occurred before.</p>
<p>So if the cameras aren’t increasing the safety on roads, what are they for? It’s all about the money, just as Dr. John Large concluded, who is a professor at the University of South Florida.</p>
<p>Thanks to RPr for the tip.</p>
