PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- The dozens of red-light cameras across Phoenix have been dark for two weeks now. Turns out, many people didn't realize they were switched off. But, when they did, Stanley Roberts caught car after car blowing through lights.
Stanley Roberts went searching for driver-behavior around the deactivated cameras and found out that drivers are pretty much still acting cautiously where the cameras are located and still running red lights where there are no cameras.
According to AAA, Arizona ranks the highest for red-light runners. Roberts spotted one in a white car at Central Avenue and McDowell Road in Phoenix. At the same intersection, he saw a white van running the red light.
There are mixed reviews for the cameras, some wishing they would stay, and some glad to see them gone. Arizona is the highest rated state for red-light runners, which is a bad thing.
