It seems there’s a new study showing that cameras at red lights are saving lives, and could save more.

Makes sense to me… if you know that you (or your parents) will get a ticket in the mail after they identify the owner, the more hard-charging among us are bound to be more careful about running red lights.

Interestingly, many places vote against these cameras, and many state legislators, attuned to the wishes of their electorate whether they make sense or not, are voting them down as well. But not so some places:

Murrieta, Calif., voted to expand the use of red-light cameras; an anti-camera petition drive failed in Maryland.
