Red light camera statistics for June 2001
  
Works and Emergency Services -- The most recent statistics released by
the Red Light Camera Processing Centre show that 777 charges were laid in June
in instances when vehicles ran red lights at the 10 Toronto intersections where
cameras were operational.

The number of charges laid in June was up from May, when charges were laid
against 534 vehicles that ran red lights.

While the number of drivers caught running red lights has increased for the
past several months, City officials say that there are fewer people running red
lights now than before the introduction of the cameras and stepped-up police
enforcement.

Before the cameras were installed, the City studied the frequency of red light
running at 17 signalized intersections. This "before-camera data" indicates
that, on average, 46 vehicles ran red lights on a daily basis in the City of
Toronto.

The 777 charges laid in June represent an average of 2.6 (or less than three)
violations a day.
