Crashes are up at intersections with red-light cameras, Fayetteville, NC city council learns

More accidents have occurred in the last couple of years at intersections in Fayetteville where red-light cameras have been installed, the latest figures show.

But some city officials question whether the traffic accidents could be even worse without the traffic cameras, which are used to ticket people who drive through red lights.

The City Council received the news in the form of an administrative report in its agenda on Monday night without discussion.

The report shows that fewer people who get a ticket for running a red light get another one.
