Red light cameras may cause accidents

Red light cameras, which are appearing on an increasing number of street corners, may actually cause accidents, according to a report from the New York Times: The New York Times > Technology > Circuits > With Cameras on the Corner, Your Ticket Is in the Mail.

Nervous drivers, it appears, may slam on the brakes when they should have cruised through the yellow light. (Privacy nerds, on the other hand, are so easily distracted by cameras that they may not pay close enough attention to traffic.)
