Additionally, other drivers might know of the existence of the cameras and not want to risk receiving a fine for running a red light, so they avoid running lights altogether. While red light cameras offer a variety of safety benefits such as protecting pedestrians, protecting cars crossing through an intersection, etc., there are some downsides, as well.
