Improving roadway safety with red light cameras

Over 800 people are killed every year in Kentucky and across the country in car accidents caused by drivers who run through red lights, and thousands more people are seriously injured. Despite it being common knowledge that running red lights is illegal, negligent drivers continue to put others at risk on a daily basis. A large percentage of those severely injured or killed in these crashes are pedestrians, bicyclists or occupants of other vehicles. Red light cameras are one method adopted by municipalities across the country in an effort to crack down on violations while also obtaining traffic ticket revenue.

Some safety systems could actually increase crash risks

While many people in Kentucky have been interested in automated driving systems because they could help to prevent deadly crashes, some experts are warning that these technologies create dangers of their own. A study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that drivers operating vehicles with certain types of advanced safety systems, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance, are more likely to be complacent about roadway safety. They put trust in the technologies to handle the driving for them, which can actually increase the risk of a serious car accident.
