It’s a popular trope among red-light camera critics, but the truth is red-lights are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to tickets to the most dangerous intersections in the city.
“It’s very difficult to get tickets for red light running,” said Michael Ahern, a law professor at the University of Virginia who studies traffic law.
For instance, you’d have to pay for a spot-check, which can be expensive, and you can be ticketed if you’re the only person in the car.
Another common complaint is that red-lighting violations don’t necessarily mean that a driver is impaired.
But a new study published by the Transportation Research Board shows that the reality of the situation is a bit more complex.
The study examined ticketing data from 10,766 drivers in the U.S. It found that while red-lit motorists account for about 1 percent of all traffic tickets, that figure is a lot more than the 1 percent figure used by opponents of red-lighters.
That’s because red- light running isn’t the same as a traffic violation.
And red light violations are only a fraction of the overall traffic violations in the country.
According to the Federal Highway Administration, traffic crashes accounted for a quarter of all fatal accidents in 2014, which was up from 17 percent in 2006.
There are other factors at play as well.
Studies show that drivers with red-flashes are twice as likely to be pulled over and arrested as drivers with no red lights, according to the Center for Responsible Lifting.
Even though they are more likely to receive tickets, the vast majority of drivers with a red-flash ticket don’t end up being cited, according a 2016 analysis by the National Safety Council.
Instead, they are required to pay the fine and go to court.
Some states, including Texas, Alabama and Florida, require red-flag drivers to get a court order to get off the road, even if they don’t actually run red lights.
Other states, such as Alabama, require the red-washes to be photographed before they are issued, but a few other states, like New York, require both photo identification and a court citation.
Most states also require drivers to pay a fine, which may add another $30 to the price tag for a red tail ticket.
In New York City, the city’s public safety department estimated that drivers who have their red lights pulled must pay $1,900 to $2,100 to avoid being cited for the violation, according the New York Daily News.
In the case of the $1.5 million citation issued to the red light camera operator in New York last month, the fine was about $7,500, the Daily News reported.
At least one red light-running video shows the driver being arrested, but that video didn’t get the attention it deserved.
A video posted by the New Yorker website shows a driver, wearing a red shirt and sunglasses, walking past a red vehicle and approaching it without stopping.
He then pulls over the vehicle to check if the driver is under the influence.
As the video continues, the red car turns into a traffic circle, which stops as soon as the driver walks away.
Then, the video cuts to another car, where the driver exits the red vehicle, walks through the traffic circle and is confronted by another red vehicle.
After the red driver exits, the camera focuses on the third car.
It shows that, like the other two cars, the driver did not stop.
This is the second time in less than a week that a red flag camera driver was arrested for red-eye running.
On July 23, a red license plate camera driver in Brooklyn was pulled over for failing to yield.
When he refused to comply with a police officer’s request to show his license, the officer asked to search his vehicle, but he refused, the Brooklyn district attorney’s office said in a statement.
Police in Los Angeles arrested an 85-year-old man for driving while red flag running in January.
Officers pulled him over after seeing him driving erratically on a busy road, the Los Angeles Times reported.
He was later charged with DUI, failing to stop at a red signal, and driving with a suspended license.
