Effects of Turning On and Off Red Light Cameras on Fatal Crashes in Large U.S. Cities

In this report, crash rate trends were compared between cities with continuous red light camera programs and 14 U.S. cities that had turned off their cameras during 2010-2014. Fatal crash rates, population density, and unemployment rates were examined for that time period. It was determined that the rates of fatal red light running crashes in the 14 cities were 30 percent higher than expected had cameras remained.
