Data is starting to come together in Fort Lauderdale's red-light camera program, which dished out more than 25,000 tickets between September 2010 and February 2012. A lot of it is more complicated than just the raw numbers (Where's that money going? How many people are actually paying them? What about challenges in court?), but there are a few numbers that manage to speak for themselves -- the ones that list where those tickets are given out.
The data is a bit old (late 2010), and driver behavior may have changed like they hoped it would, but the numbers show that 2,631 violations were recorded in less than three months at that intersection. The average number of violation per intersection where there are red light cameras was 1,058.
