BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
Boynton Beach Police take advantage of the many close calls their red light cameras captures to educate drivers. The videos show just how close and how often drivers get to a nasty crash.
In a Facebook post, the department showed a video of a car running a light and swerving violently to avoid a collision. In the post, they said: "We routinely share videos of red light camera violations in the hopes of creating constructive dialogue about the importance of stopping on red, and the dangers of distracted driving."
