…the collision data suggest a trend that might be counter-intuitive to some: Collisions at the intersections didn’t increase after the cameras went dark, and may have actually declined.
I have always felt–but could not prove–that red light photo enforcement was beneficial, far better than photo speed enforcement. But I have been highly critical of the Scottsdale Police Department for making claims about our red light photo enforcement that are not supported by critical analysis of the data.

‘Apprehensive..’ of ANYTHING that comes from the Scottsdale Police Department, and dicey ‘Leader,’ Rodbell. An understatement to be sure. In most cities of consequence the Police are well regarded, not here.
