Report throws cold water on red light cameras in Windsor, Ontario, Canada

A report to Windsor city council does not recommend the city install red-light cameras at its problem intersections.

Ward Two City Councillor Fabio Constante asked for the report last February.

Administration listed a host of reasons why it thinks installing red-light cameras and photo radar is a bad idea, including they may actually increase the number of collisions.

“Provincial studies indicate that during their pilot project, angle collisions reduced by 25 per cent and the number of rear-end collisions increased by 50 per cent,” read the report.
