didn't reduce accidents, which was the whole reason the village had them installed," said Village Manager David Hulseberg. "It wasn't a monetary decision. I know that our board members heard a lot of statements about their appropriateness. Our elected officials are very in tune with the citizenry."
According to Lombard Deputy Police Chief Dane Cuny, the village looked at the number of accidents from March 2009 to March 2010, and compared the numbers with those from March 2008 to 2009. Cuny said that while there was an 18 percent reduction in accidents at Route 53 and North Avenue, there was a 5 percent increase in accidents at Roosevelt and Finley roads. And overall, Lombard had a 12 percent decrease in accidents throughout the village.
Ware said he believed that motorists would drive hesitantly through the intersections where the cameras were installed, or slam on their brakes to avoid citations.

Earlier this month, the village voted to direct the company to remove the remaining camera at Illinois Route 53 and North Avenue. The camera at Roosevelt and Finley roads was removed in May.

"Over 90 percent of the violations caught on camera were vehicles turning right on a red light after not coming to a complete stop," Cuny said. "But we didn't issue a ticket unless it was blatant. Our officers were told not to violate the camera system. We said, 'Don't issue a ticket that you wouldn't hand over to a motorist if you were standing there.'"
