Chicago Tribune’s study finds no safety benefit from red light enforcement cameras

Here is a story from the Chicago Tribune detailing the results of their study into the safety benefits (if any) that have been derived from Chicago’s red light camera enforcement.  It showed that as a result of the cameras, there has been a 22% increase in rear end collisions, and a 15% decrease in T-bone crashes, essentially a wash.  It also found that the City has been overestimating the decrease in T-bone crashes as a way of justifying these cash-cow cameras.
