Last week, the Austin City Council voted to install cameras at various intersections around town to try and reduce the number of people running red lights. The vote comes following a pilot program where the city installed two cameras to determine what type of results they would obtain. And the results were amazing. A light installed at the intersection of Martin Luther King Blvd and I35 caught 2,233 people running the red light in little more than a month.

In adopting the new law, city officials have cited studies saying that the red light cameras could reduce fatalities and injuries from auto accidents by as much as twenty-five percent at monitored intersections.
