Red-light Cameras in Arizona
Red-light running in Arizona is a deadly epidemic. From 2007-2011, 190 Arizonans died to due red-light running making Arizona one of the top ten most deadly states in the nation for red-light running fatalities.
Red-light cameras in Arizona programs provide law enforcement agencies with a sound solution to monitor dangerous intersections and to use their limited human resources to efficiently tackle crime. By changing driver behavior communities see fewer violations, fewer collisions, fewer injuries and fewer fatalities.
- In Pima County, 86% of all violators who receive a ticket and pay it do not get another violation. Reductions from the program’s four camera approaches range from 31% to as much as 46%.
- The City of Mesa has seen a 35.5% reduction in serious injury collisions at red-light safety camera monitored approaches.
- Traffic crashes decreased 63% at Tucson’s eight intersections with red-light safety cameras in 2012, compared with 2007 when the city installed its first camera at an intersection.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety:
- The number of US cities embracing the technology has swelled from just 25 in 2000 to about 500 today.
- In 2011, 712 people were killed and more than 100,000 were injured in red-light related crashes.
- Red light cameras saved 159 lives in 2004-08 in 14 of the biggest US cities, a new analysis by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows.
- Had red light cameras been operating during that period in all large cities, a total of 815 deaths would have been prevented.
- Two-thirds of the people that die in red light crashes are people other than the violator.
- The researchers found that in the 14 cities that had cameras during 2004-08, the combined per capita rate of fatal red-light running crashes fell 35 percent, compared with 1992-96.
- The rate of all fatal crashes at intersections with signals — not just red light running crashes — fell 14 percent in the camera cities and crept up 2 percent in the non-camera cities. In the camera cities, there were 17 percent fewer fatal crashes per capita at intersections with signals in 2004-08 than would have been expected.
- A red light is run every 20 minutes at each intersection.
- About half of the deaths in red-light running crashes are pedestrians and occupants in other vehicles who are hit by red-light runners, like the people who were in this car

- Kills more than 1,000 Americans every month.
- Is a factor in one-third of all fatal crashes.
- Killed 13,000 people in collisions in 2009.
