Count Wellesley Police Chief Terrence Cunningham among those in favor of putting cameras at traffic light intersections that can automatically generate tickets for people who run red lights. From a Globe story on the issue:
“We think it’s effective,” he said. “We’ve looked at studies that talk about rear-end collisions and we don’t think there’s a lot of validity to those – there’s some, a learning curve for folks.”
He said most of the intersections along Route 16 in Wellesley see red-light scofflaws.
