I ran across this Blog Post from M.G. Bralley a retired Law Enforcement Officer blogging from Albuquerque. Besides the Anti Mayor Marty Chavez sentiment at the end of the post, he does give an excellent description of how the Albuquerque Ordinance works and how they managed to get around the state law which requires traffic citations be given out by a Law Enforcement officer who witnesses the incident and is displaying his or her badge of office on a uniform.
I also ran across two more studies which shows that accidents increase at intersections with red light camera's due to motorists making abrupt stops in order to avoid the citation.
Maryland county's red light cameras net $2.85 million, increase accidents
Georgia: Accidents Increased with Red Light Cameras
Add these to the Washington study as well as others I mentioned on my last blog about Red Light Camera's coming to Santa Fe which show increases in rear end collisions which are equal or increased over the reduction which usually occurs in red light running crashes. Some studies show increases in injuries from the rear end collisions verses the red light running collisions.
