Study Finds Yellow Time Most Effective At Curbing Red Light Running

We’re still here at Denver Scameras – It’s just been pretty buys on a personal level, so hence the lack of updates.  I’d love to keep this project going, so if anyone is interesting in helping out, please let me know.

From our friends at The Newspaper, a new study confirms what we’ve known for a while.  Adding additional time to the yellow phase of an intersection does more to reduce red light running than anything else.  I’ve asked our illustrious city leaders why this hasn’t been considered.  I usually don’t get a direct answer, so I’m sure it’s about revenue.  Will actual scientific evidence sway them?  I doubt it.  But if you’re so inclined, why don’t you contact them and share this news with them.  I’m sure they’d be happy to ignore it!


  1. John Stossel had a segment about this, YEARS ago, and said that the photo enforcement wouldn’t be “profitable” if they weren’t reducing the yellow light time by one second! So they’re risking more accidents for this predatory looting of people!
