They are kidding with this study right? What in the hell does fewer fatal crashes have to do with red light cameras? The number of OVERALL crashes needs to go down in order for this to hold any weight.

It's not like people are slowing down and running red-lights any slower because of the cameras thereby getting into collisions which are less likely to kill people.

Not to mention, how about comparing these numbers to ALL large cities. If red-light cameras work then the cities that have them should have statistically significantly fewer crashes than large cities that don't use them.

Also, how about the fact that cars have gotten a lot safer since 1996? Geez. Mark Twain was right about statistics.
