There were more accidents after red light cameras were installed in Suffolk County, New York, according to a report released by the city last week. Researchers found intersections had been much safer before the arrival of red light cameras.

“The number of total crashes at the 100 active red light camera locations increased by 59.6 percent, from 3515 to 5612, between the two study periods examined in this study,” the report concluded.
