Richard Brown Disputes Effectiveness Of Red Light Cameras
Retired attorney Richard Brown advocates the removal of "red light" cameras statewide to reduce accidents and promote safer driving. Today on "Mornings With Ken & Bernie" Brown cited statistics from many cities around the country that show lengthening the time yellow or caution lights are on has reduced accidents and tickets for running red lights. Brown said "the average decrease in tickets is fifty percent". At one intersection in Fairfax, Virginia where the yellow light time was increased by half a second Brown said "the number of tickets dropped by ninety four percent".
According to Brown adding time to the yellow or caution light at an intersection gives drivers longer to react and think about their actions.
