Also, it is often part of the contract between the light operators and the municipality that yellow light times be reduced. This actually "generates" more red light running. From a pure safety standpoint the best thing a city can do to reduce red light running is to lengthen the yellows. I have measured the yellows downtown and they are 3.3 seconds at every intersection, which I believe is the provincially mandated minimum. So I wonder if this is due to the red light camera contract. It is also independent of intersection size, which makes no sense as it takes more time to clear larger intersections. Yellows on the mountain are not all equivalent length. Do we have cameras up there?
