C.R. Cameras Are Not the Only Factor in Reduced Accidents

Cameras are about revenue, not safety.
The City’s “Traffic Camera Data – 2020 Annual Report” clearly demonstrates there has not been a progressive reduction of citations issued at any camera location. Instead, the data shows counterproductive progressive increase. This is obvious comparing the first full year of operation in 2011 to the last full year of operation in 2020 whereby increases range from 20 percent at Williams Boulevard and 16th Street SW to a staggering 362 percent increase at First Avenue and 10th Street. The average for all locations is an increase of 115 percent!
