Multi-lane, high-traffic intersections have an inordinate number of auto accidents. This is frequently because drivers attempt to make it through an intersection on a yellow light and cross traffic already has a green light.
Many jurisdictions have installed red light cameras at these high-accident intersections. Complaints have been raised that the cameras only raise funds for the areas as they snap evidence of drivers running red lights. However, these devices can be used as evidence for intersection accidents.
Red light cameras are designed to take photos of cars that have not crossed into an intersection before a light turns red. Camera photos can be used to prove fault in an intersection accident. Auto accident victims should contact an experienced Coweta County accident attorney to obtain all evidence including red light camera photographs.
