Traffic cameras can be a controversial addition to a community’s law enforcement toolkit. From concerns about privacy to accusations of cynical money grabs, these citizen misperceptions can sometimes hold up vital public safety projects. But evidence shows that automated speed enforcement prevents traffic accidents and, most important, saves lives. Once the facts are presented, the public buy-in and support become much easier.

In this webinar sponsored by Police1 and Jenoptik, we explore the common public misconceptions about traffic cameras as well as real-life case studies that refute them. We demonstrate how the benefits far outweigh any skepticism. Our panel of law enforcement experts outlines the unique challenges and needs of three different and distinct speed zone scenarios: School safety zones, construction safety zones, and point-to-point situations (e.g., tunnels), and what your community needs to know about all of them to maximize public safety.

You will learn:

  • How speed cameras are a force multiplier.
  • Why reducing speed equals less ticketing/revenue equals a net positive.
  • Ways cameras are changing driver behavior.
  • How speed cameras enforce traffic safety laws fairly.


It was great!”

“Good, statistical information and provided avenues as to how to overcome misconceptions on their use.”

We have been working to implement cameras in our state so all information is appreciated.”
