NMA Article: 10 Most Popular NMA Blog Articles In 2009



As a way to recap the year, we’ve put together a list of the articles on this blog that were viewed most often during the last twelve months.


1) 6 Cities That Were Caught Shortening Yellow Lights

This article, written in March 2008, showed how some camera manufacturers were shortening yellow lights to increase the number of tickets generated in their client’s cities. Since this article was written, the issue of yellow light timing has been closely watched anytime a ticket camera gets installed. The popularity of this topic led the NMA Foundation to start a separate website, www.shortyellowlights.com as a way to combat short yellow lights across the country.


2) Should The Driving Age Be Raised To 18?

This article, written by Eric Peters in October 2008, explored the issue of young people and driving. It asks the question: Which has more of an impact on safety — age or experience? This article seemed to be particularly popular with students researching the topic at school.

4) 7 Ways To Shut Down A Speed Trap

5) 300 MPG Or Conspiracy Theory?

This Eric Peters article from December 2007 gained popularity as gas prices became a national concern. It’s a review of the Aptera, a futuristic-looking vehicle that claimed to offer up to 300 MPG.
