YEAH, BUT THE GOVERNMENT MAKES MONEY. Accident rate rises at intersections with red-light cameras, N.J. study shows. “They were installed at dangerous intersections to reduce the number of crashes, but New Jersey’s controversial red-light cameras have actually seen an increase in collisions, according to a new state report. A New Jersey Department of Transportation analysis of two dozen intersections that have had the automated traffic cops for at least a year found that accidents — particularly rear-end crashes — have increased, and the collisions are more costly.”

Yeah, but did I mention that the government makes money?
