Red Light Camera Company Posts Car Crash Montages On YouTube
By Chris Morran on December 28, 2011 4:15 PM
We're all familiar with traffic cam footage being used in local news highlights of rain-slicked roads or cars drifting through snowy intersections, but one of the country's biggest suppliers of red light traffic cameras has been posting collections of crash clips on YouTube to show how dangerous running a red light can be.
"Each year more than 100,000 people are injured and hundreds are killed in red-light running related collisions," reads the text at the beginning of one montage taken from various cameras in New Jersey. And after all the smashing, sliding, crashing and crunching is done, more text states, "Please, Stop on Red. The life you save may be your own."
But while a rep for the company, American Traffic Solutions, tells NJ.com that cameras like the ones it produces "change driver behavior and help save lives," a rep for the National Motorists Association points out that the videos don't exactly demonstrate this behavior change: "Oh, so they're showing how their red light system doesn't stop crashes?"
Regardless, we know why you've read this far. To get to the video. So without further blah blah, here are a bunch of people in New Jersey crashing into each other:
Oh, so they're showing how their red light system doesn't stop crashes?"
I don't drive very much so I don't really have much of an opinion pro or con red light camera, but if the theory is that the information goes to police, who then issue traffic tickets, then perhaps people will reconsider speeding through the red light because they suspect they'll be caught on camera and thus, fined. And if they don't speed through the red light, they won't hit other vehicles and cause injuries.
Music by: Benny Goodman - "Sing, Sing, Sing"
"Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing)" is a 1936 song, written by Louis Prima and first recorded by him with the New Orleans Gang and released in March 1936 as a 78 as Brunswick 7628 (with "It's Been So Long" as the B side). It is strongly identified with the big band and swing eras. It was covered by Fletcher Henderson and most famously Benny Goodman. Originally entitled "Sing Bing Sing", in reference to Bing Crosby, it was soon retitled for use in wider contexts. The song has since been covered by numerous artists. The original version of the song by Louis Prima includes lyrics, but, due to the better-known Benny Goodman version being instrumental (and including many musical flourishes in its arrangement), many assume the song was written as such.
On July 6, 1937, "Sing, Sing, Sing" was recorded in Hollywood with Benny Goodman on clarinet; Harry James, Ziggy Elman, and Chris Griffin on trumpets; Red Ballard and Murray McEachern on trombones; Hymie Schertzer and George Koenig on alto saxophones; Art Rollini and Vido Musso on tenor saxophone; Jess Stacy on piano; Allan Reuss on guitar; Harry Goodman on bass; and Gene Krupa on drums. The song was arranged by Jimmy Mundy. Unlike most big band arrangements of that era, limited in length to three minutes so that they could be recorded on one side of a standard 10-inch 78-rpm record, Goodman band version was an extended work. The 1937 recording lasted 8 min 43 seconds, and took both sides of a 12-inch 78. At its longest, a live recording (with impromptu solos) was recorded and took 12 min 30 sec. Mundy's arrangement incorporated "Christopher Columbus", a piece written by Chu Berry for the Fletcher Henderson band, as well as Prima's work.
