DOT releases myth list in wake of yellow light study

The Department of Transportation (DOT) has released a list of six myths it found in a recent AAA study.

According to AAA, yellow lights around the city are shorter than the standard three seconds. It says drivers are getting trapped at red light cameras because they don't have the time to slow down.

DOT first called the study bogus, but then went a step further. As part of the list, officials say the lights named by AAA were each inspected and found to have appropriate times.
