New York City Transportation Officials Propose 24/7 Camera Operations To Combat Apparent Speeding Epidemic

Officials said traffic fatalities among drivers and motorcyclists are way up this year, and that’s why new enforcement measures to deter speeding are necessary now, CBS2’s Kiran Dhillon reported.

The city said a look at fatal crashes in 2020 shows 36% of all traffic deaths that were not on highways occurred where cameras are located, but happened during hours when they were not operating. Meanwhile, speeding was reduced by more than 70% at locations that have cameras.
