12 red-light cameras turned off; City says they did nothing to stop crashes
NORTH PARK — Twelve red-light cameras have been removed from six intersections across the city after a study found they did little to make the streets safer.
A study by the Northwestern University Transportation Center found that the cameras did nothing to protect motorists, city officials said.
The red-light cameras did not reduce the number of crashes even though there were a high number of violations recorded, according to the study.
