Officials from the Philadelphia Parking Authority, said ” they surveyed the number of accidents and red-light violations in deciding which intersections get the cameras”.

“Broad and Vine was selected for a number of reasons. First and foremost, a number of accidents caused by red-light running and the amount of red-light running,” he said in CBS News. “It is a very busy intersection for pedestrians and vehicles.”
