You’ve probably heard plenty of rumors about automated enforcement – but with more jurisdictions embracing these safety tools, it’s imperative to distinguish between what’s accurate and what’s false. Here, building on our previous “Busting Myths” blog, we reveal the truth about four common misconceptions.
In addition, automated enforcement tools can be used for reducing congestion on busy roadways and enforcing clean air zones. The data and insights delivered by automated enforcement inform smart policy and infrastructure changes, making travel easier and safer for everyone.
Therefore, a multi-faceted approach, combining several tactics, to prevent collisions is the most effective approach. Numerous studies support the view that lengthening yellow-light time contributes to a reduction in red-light violations, but the yellow-time benefits do not necessarily outweigh the benefits of red-light cameras. Combining adequate yellow-light time with red-light cameras is more effective and saves lives: a 2008 study in Philadelphia found longer yellow-light times cut down on red-light running by 36%, but adding cameras reduced it by 96%.
