RESEARCH ON RED-LIGHT CAMERAS:

USF’s College of Public Health concluded that instead of improving safety, the cameras actually make intersections more dangerous. Further, its study said, the cameras give insurance companies a reason to jack up rates for those who get tickets. . . .

No elected official in Tampa Bay has called USF to talk to the study’s researchers, said Langland-Orban, who along with Pracht and Large have done about 75 interviews with various media outlets.

“Locally, the reception has been to ignore our research,” she said. “If you want the money from cameras, you don’t want to know what their impact is.”

But read the whole thing, as there are critics.
