Speed cameras reduce crashes in DC

A new report from the DC Department of Transportation (DDOT) and Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) finds that speed cameras are doing a good job at reducing accidents, injuries and slowing drivers down. DDOT teamed up with PB to study 295 speed camera locations within the District of Columbia, which include existing, planned and proposed locations for the cameras. According to the executive summary findings, total crashes dropped 16.83% and the number of injuries fell 20.38% after cameras were installed.
