Abstract

Initially, our paper reviews prior literature and techniques on the effectiveness of red-light cameras in terms of traffic accidents, injuries, fatalities, red-light tickets, and cost. We then apply data mining techniques to examine the data stored in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s key database on vehicle fatalities to try to tease patterns and rules related to red-light controlled intersections.
