I know the city of Tempe removed the red light cameras because the short light trick was creating too many accidents. Once the traffic signals were restored to a normal time interval the program no longer was the cash cow they had hoped for.

I still see the AHP Explorers with the camera on top sitting by the high ways at times.

The city of Roseville in California went through the same issue that Tempe did, except Roseville got sued for short lighting and had to refund much of the money.
