Why Stop at Red Light Cameras

Reading Time: 1 minutes

I’ve written about this before.

The problem with traffic signals is that they make all of the problems they’re designed to solve worse. By “all the problems” I mean:

  • Pollution
  • Congestion
  • Deaths
  • Accidents
  • Speed of Transit
  • Risk to pedestrians (except those with certain disabilities)

 

Banning red light cameras is a great first step, but the ultimate goal should be elimination of traffic lights altogether. 

Watch both episodes. Decide for yourself.

Turning the lights off worked.

  • Less pollution
  • Fewer accidents (cars and pedestrians)
  • Less congestion
  • Shorter commutes
  • Safer roads
  • Happier people
  • Up to 20 percent better fuel economy
