Drivers running red lights is a major cause of crashes, injuries and death at intersections. The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) has a comprehensive approach to intersection safety that incorporates engineering, education and enforcement countermeasures. Research indicates that red-light cameras can be an effective countermeasure in preventing red light running. However, they should only be installed where red-light running is documented and other solutions have failed.
