MILLBRAE, Calif. (KGO) --Many of us have seen the sudden flash of a red light camera as we pass an intersection. An independent study finds those cameras may have saved lives.
The number of cities in the country with red light cameras has gone down in recent years. Now an independent study done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says that may have been a mistake. The report found that when cities got rid of their red light cameras between 2010 and 2014, the number of fatalities increased up to 30 percent in some cases.
