Crashes caused by red light running result in more than 800 fatalities and 165,000 injuries each year, according to the NHTSA. The economic impact of red light running on society is estimated to be $14 billion annually. Other motorists and pedestrians account for nearly half the deaths caused by red light running crashes.
View how red light cameras work for more information on the functionality of the cameras.
Communities lack the resources necessary to allow police to patrol intersections as often as would be needed to ticket all motorists who run red lights and thereby make a significant impact on red light running. Red light cameras are designed to identify traffic law violators without depending on the presence of police officers, allowing communities to focus on other enforcement needs.
A 2007 study of three Iowa communities equipped with red light cameras found no increase in rear-end collisions. A 2005 study in Raleigh, North Carolina, showed a 25% reduction in rear-end accidents. Columbus, Ohio experienced an 81% decrease in rear-end collisions at its first installed intersections after one year.

Eligible uses for awarded subrecipient ARPA funds are any costs associated with designing and implementing a project or program to mitigate or respond to an impact created by the pandemic on an identified population or group within the community. Each awarded subrecipient will be required to provide proof of expenditures associated with the program as well as report on the performance of the program itself.
Eligible uses for awarded beneficiary ARPA funds include
Subrecipients are entities that receive a subaward from the Township of Cherry Hill to carry out a program or project on behalf of the Township. These subrecipient awards will be provided through a combination of an application process and form of legal agreement/contract between the subrecipient and the Township. Subrecipients must comply with the applicable requirements in the Treasury’s Uniform Guidance including the treatment of eligible uses of funds, procurement, and reporting requirements, including audit pursuant to the Single Audit Act and 2 CFR 200, Subpart F. In contrast, beneficiaries are entities that receive funds for the purpose of directly benefitting from the funds granted to combat the negative public health or economic impacts caused by the pandemic. Beneficiaries are not subject to the same monitoring and reporting requirements of a subrecipient.
In the duplication of benefit calculation, repayable private business loans are not considered a form of alternate funding assistance and should not be considered when calculating a duplication of benefits.
A duplication of benefit exists if an applicant applies for RISE grant funding for the same use or impact previously applied for and made whole through alternate federal, state, or local grant funds.
To assist in determining if a duplication of benefit exists, applicants are required to disclose all alternate funding previously applied for and received for the same impact and/or use they are currently applying for through the Township’s RISE program. Applicants will also be required to fill out an Exhibit to demonstrate the total value of the estimated need and/or impact and itemize all alternate funding received for the same. If the need is less than the total of the alternate and RISE grant funding being applied for, a duplication of benefits exists and the applicant would not be eligible for RISE grant funding. In some instances, a reduced RISE grant application amount may result in eligibility, as long as the total need remains equal to, or greater than, the total amount of alternate and RISE grant funding combined.
