The biggest, most shameless camera promoting newspaper of them all, The 
Washington Post, has examined accident data in the District. It found 
accidents jumped 207 percent at intersections where red light cameras 
were installed:

These findings should not have been a surprise, as they are consistent 
with previous studies:

I look forward to reading the Post's editorial page explaining this one 
away.
