Even better they actually cause more accidents than they prevent.

Win/win!

It does cut down on people running lights but increases the amount of rear end accidents by two fold or something. I've read that and seen it in action myself.

I'm sitting there ready to turn when suddenly next to me a white acura sedan panic brakes for a yellow and BLAAAAM glass and plastic pieces fly like 30 feet into the air as a Nissan Titan creams this poor lady in the ass at a full 40-50 mph. Pushed her out half way into the intersection too

I say it's better to hire the extra cop - he can not only sit there watching for traffic infractions but he can also respond to a rape/burglary if necessary. Plus less people will get jewed over for making a quick right-on-red. Humans judge the situation, cameras flag your video and you get a ticket even if there was nobody in sight.
