PA Editorial: Speed cameras could reduce deadly accidents on one of Philly’s most dangerous roads. Will City Council Approve their Installation?

Roosevelt Boulevard represents half of 1 percent of all roads in the city but it is where 12 percent of all crashes occur.

Since 2011, at least 60 people have been killed with another 4,700 injuries along the Boulevard.

In 2018 there were 21 deaths on Roosevelt Boulevard accounting for 21% of all the fatalities on the city’s road. A two-fold increase from 2017.

We are clearly trending in the wrong direction.
