New Orleans drivers have been slowing down at intersections monitored by traffic cameras.

In the two years since New Orleans began issuing tickets for red-light camera violations, red-light running and speeding have dropped by more than 90 percent at monitored intersections.

The figures are consistent with national statistics that show the number of violations at camera-monitored intersections continues to fall the longer a camera has been active.
