The L.A. Board of Police Commissioners is looking at the effectiveness of red-light cameras on Tuesday morning.

The board met to review a report on rear-end collisions at intersections with red-light cameras. The report shows a 63 percent decrease in such crashes from 2004 to 2009.

In addition, there has been a 10 percent overall decrease in all types of collisions and no red light-related fatalities since the red-light camera program began.
