    A look into a growing number of Bay Area cities opting out of red light cameras. Monte Francis reports. (Published Wednesday, June 12, 2013)

    A growing number of Bay Area cities are opting out of their contracts with Redflex Holdings, an Australian-based company that provides red light camera technology.

    Since March, Hayward, Redwood City and now Belmont have decided to put the brakes on red light cameras.

    In Belmont, thousands of drivers were stuck with $480 tickets and there is no indication the streets were made any safer.

    In Hayward, rear-ended accidents increased at intersections with cameras.
