Houston Red Light Cameras and Proposition 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdK-vnDRzFA Frequently Asked Questions Proposition 3 Why are Intersection Safety Cameras needed? Red-light running is the leading cause of urban crashes. Pedestrians and occupants in other vehicles account for about half of the deaths in red-light running crashes. (Source: http://www.iihs.org/research/qanda/rlr.html) Isn't the main purpose of red light cameras to make money? The objective of red light cameras is to improve intersection safety. Fines collected through red light camera violations are used to pay for the installation, operation, administration and maintenance of the photographic enforcement system. A portion of the revenue from the installation over and above costs is required to be directed to the regional trauma account and local traffic safety programs. What are the financial costs associated with red-light running? According to the Houston Galveston Area Council, the regional cost of red-light running is $225 million annually. Are Intersection Safety Cameras an effective way to combat red-light running? In May 2010, the Institute of Transportation Engineers Journal published an analysis of more than 20 separate studies that measured the effectiveness of intersection safety cameras. The authors concluded that the cameras "substantially reduce red-light violation rates and; reduce crashes that result from red light-running." Where are Houston's Intersection Safety Cameras located? The Houston Chronicle recently published an informative and interactive map at: http://www.chron.com/mm/ymap/lightcams/ Are my fellow Houstonians in favor of Intersection Safety Cameras? Yes. A poll of 500 likely Houston voters conducted March 1-2, 2010, found that more than 71% of Houstonians believe intersection safety cameras make Houston safer, and two thirds (65%) support the City's intersection safety camera program. The same poll also found that Intersection Safety Cameras have broad support across political, racial and socioeconomic lines in Houston.
