New York City drivers are some of the worst offenders when it comes
to running red lights. For example, according to the National Campaign
to Stop Red Light Running, in 2001 the New York City comptroller
estimated that drivers ran 1 million red lights per day during a
typical work day! In 2003, New York City issued over 300,000 red light
citations, according to Stateline.org. Many of these citations came
from New York intersection cameras.
