State Senator Dan Duffy has a long-standing campaign against Red Light Cameras.
He, among may others concluded that their installation was for raising revenue, not reducing accidents.
Now a $14,000 study financed by the Chicago Tribune has added significant weight to that point of view.
With all the Federal traffic safety money flowing into Illinois, wouldn’t you think that the Illinois Department of Transportation could have used one of its highly paid and highly skilled researchers to perform a similar study.
The Tribune study found there were fewer T-bone accidents, but that they were more than offset by an increase in rear end collisions.
Maybe Governor-Elect Bruce Rauner will put that on the plate of his Secretary of Transportation.
