Schaumburg, IL - A little more freedom on the way

After studying their red light cameras and the accidents in the village, the cameras are coming down.

The corner with the red-light cameras had 26 crashes last year, but none caused
by signal violations. And of the 12 crashes there this year, only one was caused
by disobeying a red light, Howerton said.

There is no indication whether the one accident caused by disobeying a red light was a result of inattention (which cameras cannot help at all) or by an intentional red light runner. There is a good chance that the single accident caused in this case was by inattention and that cameras made absolutely no difference at all.
