Photo Enforcement: Ten Changes Needed

Photo Enforcement: Ten Changes Needed

THE SHORT VERSION: Currently our provincial and municipal governments are reviewing photo enforcement. This is good: I have deep concerns about our current implementation of photo traffic enforcement. Anything which causes the distrust and anger at government that photo enforcement causes needs to be re-evaluated. However, my experience and in-depth study of academic literature leads me to believe that it does play a role in enhancing safety. I do not support the elimination of photo enforcement. However, I do have ten changes I would like to see made to our traffic enforcement programs. Some changes revolve around deployment of enforcement, others around its oversight and communication. I want to give our citizens reason to trust that photo enforcement is about safety, not revenue.
