The Insur­ance Insti­tute for High­way Safety (IIHS) has just con­ducted a new study reveal­ing that one type of traf­fic cam — the red-light cam­era — can sig­nif­i­cantly reduce the num­ber of dri­vers who run red lights and, the­o­ret­i­cally, the many acci­dents they cause. In addi­tion to the traf­fic cams them­selves, the IIHS also set up its own video cam­eras to record red-light runners.
