via The Newspaper:

Accidents have increased in Philadelphia, PA, and in Fort Collins, CO, at intersections where red light cameras have been installed.

Also in Fort Collins, one second was added to the yellow light time at an intersection with a red light camera and look what happened:

Both accidents and red light citations dropped by more than half comparing the most recent month’s data to the same time last year. Daily ticket revenue also plunged from $3000 to $1125, giving officials cause to delay voting on a new camera to see if revenue will rebound.
