This is a Petition to get the City of Davenport to take down all of the red light traffic cameras. The city says these cameras are put up for safety and to help save lives by stopping people from running red lights. These cameras do not take in consideration of traffic or weather conditions, many times running a red light is unavoidable due to these conditions. Also a recent study by the Urban Transit Institute by North Carolina A-T University shows a TEN percent increase in rear-end crashes at red light camera locations. This study also estimates that if all other factors (weather and traffic) were at a constant there would be a 43 percent decrease in traffic accidents at an intersection if the red light cameras were no longer there. Red light cameras are not in place for our safety, if anything they cause more accidents then they would ever prevent.
