    Haha... yeah... that darn "enforcing laws" scam! Dammit, why do people fall for that scam?

    Seems like Ottawa could use some Photo Radar! misleading data and all.

    Whatever the underlying factors are causing this increase in major injury and fatality collisions, it is clear that the data strongly suggests that the removal of photo radar has greatly increased the rate of major injury and fatal accidents. In other words, the roads are less safe than before photo radar was removed.
    More misleading data, and all.

    These accidents could have been a result of texting or drunk driving -- which a photo radar unit wouldn't have made any difference.

    That's certainly possible, that we're getting more distracted. It's also likely that a distracted driving crash at 55 is likely to be less severe than one at 60 or 65.

    That's just as likely as your hypothesis.
    There can only be one.

    no hypothesis needed comparing Edmonton to Ottawa, unless we really are terrible drivers compared to them

    While Sherwood Park doesn't use photo radar (they do on red-light cameras) they do have speed traps, tend to set them up in construction zones and along various parts of AHD and Yellowhead. I haven't seen them in school or playground zones, but I don't drive much in those areas during school times.

    I'm fine with speed traps. I'm actually OK with the speed-on-green cams and red light cams too. It's the Henday and hidden-trucks on free flowing roads that are BS. It doesn't need to be completely removed, just massively overhauled.

    Revenue down by 3 Million...

    Iveson says "The system is working."

    I'm not surprised. The cash influx from the unannounced lowering of the "fudge factor" is drying up, and drivers who were caught unaware by the new enforcement policy have wised up. I don't see any real gains in traffic safety.
