The Lesson for New York

The lesson here is that fatal car accidents are caused by other factors that cannot be prevented by Red Light Cameras! Drunk Driving, Texting while driving, Speeding are among the reasons car accidents happen.

However, Car Accidents and pedestrian deaths may be on the rise because drivers are stopping short at yellow lights, or gunning their cars, and not looking ahead but looking up at the traffic lights to make sure they make it. This risky behavior is dangerous.

Remove the Red Light Cameras because they are unsafe and actually changing drivers behavior for the worse. Our politicians are lying to us. This is a very profitable business for Xerox and other RLC vendors and this is putting more drivers and pedestrians at risk every day. They  do not care about our safety.
