NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A company that provides red light cameras for many New Jersey communities is highlighting some of this year’s so-called greatest hits.

American Traffic Solutions has posted video footage of ten traffic mishaps from 2011 on YouTube.

The company said the collisions and some near-misses are posted online as a way to remind people of the consequences of running red lights.

Currently, cameras are installed in 25 New Jersey cities.

A survey conducted earlier this year in the Garden State by The National Coalition for Safer Roads found that 77-percent of registered voters favor red light cameras.

Fifty-six percent of those surveyed said the cameras change their driving behavior.
