Here's a scientific study that proves what we already knew a long time... speed radars have no affect on road safety, but they do affect our wallets.

David Finney in the UK, an engineer by profession, did an in-depth study of accidents in locations that had speed cameras (the infamous Gatso Open  in a new window), both of the fixed and mobile kind, comparing accidents before and after the speed camera was implemented.

His research was based on data provided by one of the operators of speed cameras, the Thames Valley Safer Roads Partnership. He looked at data 24 months before, and 24 months after the speed camera was implemented.

And the results? Fixed camera locations saw a slight decrease in accidents, while mobile sites saw a slight increase. On average, accidents dropped 0.2 %. That's it. That's all! So it's all a money racket, but then we knew that all along.
