Efficient Evaluation Procedures for Red-Light Cameras

The study takes advantage of the simple queuing diagram concept and modern digital camcorder precision to help evaluate red-light camera efficiency without requiring long-term crash data information. Expressed driver behaviors are derived from aggregated queuing curves shortly before, during and shortly after the yellow period. Aggressive and conservative driver behaviors can be graphically identified and used for safety planning and operational purposes.
