Red-Light Fatalities Hit 10-Year High Nationally, But NOT in New York State

Deaths from drivers plowing through red lights have hit a 10-year high nationally, but New York State is bucking that trend.

How is that possible? New York is grappling with the same distracted driving issues as the rest of the country…one reason points to the use of red light cameras, particularly in Long Island.

Whether or not red light cameras are designed to be a moneymaker for the county or a bonafide safety measure, I think we can all agree that we are truly in the midst of a distracted driving epidemic.

What do you think?!
