Speed or Greed: Does Automated Traffic Enforcement Improve Safety or Generate Revenue

http://wp.me/p1fJaD-9L

We’re often told to “just slow down” or that “speed kills” but a new study from the Frontier Centre for Public Policy says we’re being fed tired old lines.

Hiroko Shimizu, author of the study Speed or Greed: Does Automated Traffic Enforcement Improve Safety or Generate Revenue? spoke with me about the research into whether or not photo radar is about safety or cash.

Do red light cameras and other forms of electronic traffic enforcement make us any safer? A new study by the Frontier Centre for Public Policy disputes the assertion that they do. Instead, the study suggests that this is more of a cash grab than a safety feature.
