ANALYSIS - Intersection Safety Cameras
Love 'em or hate 'em, intersection safety cameras that measure vehicle speed along with red light violations are part of the solution to reduce crashes on BC highways. Dr. Werner Antweiler of UBC's Sauder School of Business has written an analysis of "speed on green" cameras. He quotes Professor Richard Allsop's report from research conducted in Great Britain:
The findings are unambiguous. Cameras, historically, have saved lives. They continue to save lives. And should they be removed, speeds will rise and accidents with them.
His analysis contains links to information that examines both sides of using automated enforcement in this way.
