Do Red-Light Cameras Reduce Traffic Fatalities?

To complicate the red-light camera debate, a February 2011 study finds red light cameras actually reduce red-light running traffic fatalities.

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), such cameras reduce not only fatal red-light running collisions, but also other types of fatal crashes at intersections. The study finds red-light cameras saved approximately 59 lives from 2004 to 2008 in 14 major cities, reducing the rate of red-light gunning accidents by 24 percent.

In addition, the study concluded that a total of 815 deaths would have been prevented, had all major cities installed such cameras.
