BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) — A Beaverton man who says he’s proven that red light cameras are flawed presented his findings at a prestigious conference of traffic engineers.

Mats Jarlstrom’s research shows some drivers get caught in a “no man’s land” when slowing down to turn right on a green light, when suddenly the light turns yellow.

Jarlstrom says some people can’t avoid getting tickets because the laws of nature mean they can’t stop before the light turns red.

He shared his research in Los Angeles with the Institute for Transportation Engineers, which helps set national traffic policy.
