Event Details

Automated speed cameras are a proven and effective tool in reducing traffic injuries and deaths. Washington D.C. experienced a 73% reduction in traffic fatalities and a 34% reduction in traffic-related injuries over a 11-year study period and Chicago noted a 43% reduction in speeding recorded by the cameras in the first year of operation. However, though more than 18 states and 142 communities across the country have authorized their use, California has yet to do so. But with growing interest in de-policing traffic enforcement, curtailing bias and reducing traffic injury and death, these tools are under consideration once again. Hear from policymakers and advocates on the opportunities and equity concerns connected to speed safety cameras.
