As Nevada red-light camera bill stalls, critics point to studies that show they don’t work

“Study after study has demonstrated that traffic cameras, while increasing revenue for local jurisdictions, do little or nothing for public safety,” Michael Schaus, communications director at NPRI, told Watchdog.org. “Time and again, these cameras have proven to be ripe for abuse by law enforcement and government jurisdictions, often targeting low-income neighborhoods and actually increasing the public safety hazard citizens face in some cases. It’s for this reason that states like Florida and Colorado are even considering outright bans.”
