Red Light Cameras: A Success Thus Far?

With all the hyperbole and angst displayed in this forum and elsewhere over the new red light camera installed at Ravenswood and El Camino, I thought I'd share my impressions, having driven through the intersection perhaps 20 times since the cameras "went live" a month or so ago. Based on admittedly anecdotal evidence I'd say the cameras are a success. I seem to see far fewer people brazenly running the red lights at this intersection -- people actually appear to be driving slower, as if anticipating the need to stop on yellow -- and I haven't witnessed any rear-end collisions.
Has anyone else seen or heard about accidents or received any photo tickets at this intersection? Has Big Brother otherwise come knocking?
