The in-depth analysis studies the aggregate effect of safety cameras in an entire community, not just at safety camera-enforced intersections. It also takes into account population density and land area over the two time periods. The following is an excerpt of the study:
"In the current study the cities that implemented red light camera programs had higher baseline crash rates, suggesting that government officials were motivated by safety concerns. Although automated traffic enforcement is not a panacea, the current study adds to the large body of evidence that red light cameras can prevent the most serious crashes. This evidence should be considered by communities seeking to reduce crashes at intersections."
