One thing can be done immediately at virtually no cost. Reset the yellow intervals longer for the 0.4 seconds authorized by the Florida Department of Transportation AND for the actual approach speeds of at least 85% of the vehicles. Between the two changes, many lights will have yellows about one full second longer. This will DRASTICALLY reduce violations from the predatory red light camera cash register scams.
Note that the area Florida Department of Transportation District may strongly oppose resetting the yellow for more safety and fewer violations because it will drastically reduce the number of $83 commissions the state gets from each money grab scam ticket where the yellows are too short.

Governor Cuomo has signed on to a five year program to pick the pockets of mostly safe drivers with predatory money-grab speed camera cash registers.
This will NOT improve safety, the cameras may reduce safety, and the ONLY goal for the program is $$$$$$$$$$$. It is a total scam for money.
