Building Trust in Automated Speed Enforcement Programs

Measures to cut driving speed are widely recognized as one of the most effective pathways to achieving immediate and sustained road traffic injury reductions. The evidence gained over many years demonstrates that speed cameras are an extremely effective countermeasure designed to reduce inappropriate speeding.

Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) programs have thus become a cornerstone of many national road safety strategies, but they rely on a foundation of trust in the rationale, goals and tools underpinning these programs. Moreover, for an ASE system to be effective and widely accepted, including in a court of law, it is of paramount importance that all readings from these devices are accurate, and that this accuracy can be legally proven by those operating the devices.  

This webinar will highlight the value of designing speed enforcement programs around the values of transparency and accountability to ensure they deliver robust readings and safety benefits for all road users.
