"More than 50 Americans lose their lives in red-light running crashes every month, but somehow the people who get tickets because they have broken the law have been cast as the victims. The real victims are the people who are killed or injured by red-light runners. Research demonstrates that cameras are an effective deterrent. Cities such as those in New Jersey that have had the courage to use them, despite the political backlash, are saving lives."

(Times of Trenton, January 13, 2013)
“They save lives. They are reducing fatalities and the severity of injuries, they are lessening the odds of red light running episodes, and they are modifying the driving behavior of motorists who sometimes tend to push the envelope and take chances at intersections.”
- John B. Townsend II, AAA Mid-Atlantic
(The Washington Post, January 24, 2012).
“As someone who has stood in the middle of an intersection directing traffic and who has been the first to arrive at the scene of a senseless traffic crash, I will tell you that I support red-light safety cameras as much as I support speed limits, seat belts and every other traffic law and safety device available to drivers today. Red-light safety cameras save lives, and keeping them in place will continue to benefit all of us in New Jersey.”
-Richard Gerbounka, Mayor of Linden, New Jersey
(New Jersey Newsroom, December 11, 2012).
“Because of the city of Alpharetta’s red-light camera system, our roadways are safer. We continue to experience a declining number of crashes, injuries and fatalities. This technology is a great benefit to the city, and a significant number of lives have been saved.”
- Gary George, Alpharetta, Georgia Public Safety Director
