Abstract

RED-LIGHT CAMERAS AND SPEED CAMERAS are automated devices that issue citations to drivers who run red lights or drive above the speed limit. These citations have a limited cost—often $50—and have no impact on a driver’s license “points” or insurance rates. While there have been conflicting reports through the years, the evidence is now conclusive that these cameras save lives, and do so in a way that is revenue-positive for the cities that use them. As a supplement to in-person enforcement with the teeth to get repeat offenders off the street, they are simply too effective to ignore.
