Not everyone agrees with the cameras effectiveness, necessity, or fairness, however. The National Motorists Association, which staunchly opposes the use of the technology, says that cameras are inaccurate, and often do not provide a clear image of the offending vehicle.
“Tests done by the University of Virginia found that fewer than three percent of the photos taken of vehicles on Interstate-type roads provided a clear image of a single vehicle, the license plate number and the driver,” the Association states on their website. “Photo radar should not be used on high-speed, multi-lane highways. Yet, some greedy cities still use it on these types of roads.”
