Red Light Cameras Raise Crash Risk, Cost

leon.gandalf Re:Bad driving != Legit reason to can red-light ca (499 comments)

It is poor driving skills that leads to running red lights as well as poor driving skills that leads to the rear end collisions. Not to mention the mass of accidents caused due to people being just far to fucking ignorant to abide safe following distances. But I think you got it with the assessment that the cameras just make it obvious, not cause it.

A quick Google search will reveal a lot of people rooting their phones to get rid of Bing. A Bing search will bring back some irrelevant pretty pictures.
