Re: “Report says red-light cameras effective at reducing accidents, violations

The report is fraudulent science.

http://redlightrobber.com/red/links_pdf/Red-Light-Camera-Before-After-Studies-Deceit.pdf

The initial statement in the "study" deems the study pseudoscience:

"Red light running is complex and there is no single reason to explain why drivers run red lights. Red light running is generally a result of drivers wanting to save time . . ."

These are invalid premises. Injected into the study from its beginning is the hindsight bias that drivers are guilty. It makes a conclusion before investigation of causality. It is a well-known that fact that dilemma zones created by traffic engineers is the biggest contributor to red light running and crashes. That is because the math formula engineers use to set yellow light durations violates the laws of physics for general traffic movement. Traffic engineers will not admit the egregious error because they have committing it since 1965.

The "study" is typical of pro-camera studies. Those who do not know science will be deceived by it. Those deceived are the councilmen who read it and the engineers who wrote it.
