  1. For the two (2) locations with three (3) years of data, when the Pre-Camera year crash data is compared to Year 3, right-angle crashes are down 86%, rear-end crashes are down 58%, total crashes are down 72%, and estimated crash severity costs have been reduced by $246,200. Regarding the citations issued at these locations, comparing Month 1 (the first month) of operation with Month 36 (the last month at the end of the three year period), citations are down 83%.

  2. Considering the crash, severity and citation data, both annually and over the three year period it can be concluded that RLR has made a difference and therefore appears to be a viable safety tool at these Group 1 intersections.

  3. For the twenty-two (22) locations that have been active for two (2) full years, when the Pre-Camera year data is compared to Year 2, right-angle crashes are down 60%, rear-end crashes are down 7%, total crashes are down 27%, and estimated crash severity costs have been reduced by $787,200. Regarding the citations issued at these locations, comparing Month 1 of operation with Month 24, citations are down 61%.

  4. For the twenty-three (23) intersections that have been operating for one (1) full year, when the Pre-Camera year is compared to Year 1, right-angle crashes are down 15%, rear-end crashes are down 3%, total crashes are down 5%, and estimated crash severity costs have decreased by $2,176,100. Regarding the citations issued at these locations, comparing Month 1 with Month 12, citations are down 31%.

  5. Adding the severity costs for each operational year, right-angle crash costs at all RLR intersections have decreased $1,519,500 and rear-end crash costs have decreased $1,690,000, resulting in a combined net public benefit of $3,209,500 for the program up through December 31, 2012.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
