“Andrew Constance, New South Wales' Minister for Roads said the "world-first" technology would target illegal cell phone use through "fixed and mobile trailer-mounted cameras."

The cameras will use artificial intelligence to review images and detect illegal use of cell phones, according to Transport for NSW.”

" radar is a cash cow.

We all know it.

Almost anybody who doesn’t have their hand in the photo radar milk jug knows the score and knows who is the winner and who are the losers.

A nosecount found only eight out of a hundred Albertans thought the government playing candid camera wasn’t about the money at all, a smaller group than those who believe in the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny or that Greta Thunberg has our best interests at heart."

We launched SKYP 2 - Lying With Statistics last week. It showed clearly there had been deficient reporting regarding BC’s highway speed limits adjustments, and we showed there was little to no relationship between speed limit changes in BC on the highways studied and more crashes. The Toronto Star was on that News Release distribution, they got the memo, yet on Friday they published this. “In their paper, the four authors refer to British Columbia’s experience in raising speed limits and note that, when limits were raised by 10 kilometres per hour on 1,300 kilometres of rural provincial highways there, severe crashes increased by 11.1 per cent.”

"Vehicles impounded for excessive speeding

2016: 8,422
2017: 7,184
2018: 7,648
2019 (to Oct. 31): 7,261"

“It’s really surprising. When you think about it, excessive speeding, you’ve got to be going at least 40 kilometres over the speed limit, so you’re doing 90 in a 50 zone. In other words, you’re an idiot.”

"Farnworth said he is also open to legislation that could allow for excessive speeders’ cars to be seized permanently."

@pladner @critiklthinking @CBCStephenQuinn @CBCEarlyEdition There is no one solution - but more of the same isn't going to magically make things better. Speeding tickets already account for nearly 40% of tickets issued by police. 40% of all crashes are in parking lots. Another 40% are in intersections and rarely high speed.

@pladner @critiklthinking @CBCStephenQuinn @CBCEarlyEdition Police need to target incompetent driving behaviors (they don't enough). Simulator re-testing at each licence renewal to test for competence. Put police back into intersection enforcement. Stricter driving training. If speeds are too fast: engineering changes need consideration.

@pladner @critiklthinking @CBCStephenQuinn @CBCEarlyEdition Peter: 2/3rd's of BC drivers killed in speeding crashes had drugs and/or alcohol in their system. A mailed ticket with no points, no record, does nothing to truly dangerous drivers. Photo radar a gift to criminal drivers, a tax lottery on everyone else.

@CBCStephenQuinn @CooperQuinn_WY @CBCEarlyEdition Here is one stat VisionZero folk will leave out of the conversation: “One in every three (33%) of fatal pedestrian crashes involved a pedestrian with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of at least 0.08”
This doesn’t fit into their narrative.
