About the presentation

When properly implemented, speed and red light running cameras can considerably contribute to the reduction of casualties, injuries and crashes, as well as, improve traffic flow, and increase quality of life with more safety, lower emissions and less noise pollution. In addition to road safety measures, personal injury and death on roadways have a significant impact on the economy through medical costs, lost wages and disability pay outs.  These costs are estimated by the WHO to be 1 – 3% of a country’s GNP.

In many countries these traffic enforcement cameras are purchased, owned, and operated by government organizations. Back-offices, where violation data are processed, citations issued, and traffic fines collected, have traditionally been government run activities. The past two decades have seen a wide-ranging wave of privatizations and introduction of Public Private Partnerships in government owned or controlled activities, including traffic enforcement. Government tasks or services that are funded and operated through a partnership of a public sector authority and private sector company is typically referred to as a Public Private Partnership.

Implementing this concept means that not a government body, but rather a private party invests and installs enforcement equipment (e.g. speed or red-light cameras). Back office processing (i.e. sending out violation notices and fine collection) is also often carried out by a private party. The investment in systems and related processing and support activities are funded by the fine revenue collected over the contract term. Gaining support, and ultimately acceptance, from the public for these projects is crucial. That is why transparency, publicity and communication are key factors for successful implementation. Therefore, some jurisdictions also elect to subcontract ‘publicity and communication’ to private parties.

This webinar will introduce an innovative, comprehensive methodology to allow states, provinces and/or cities around the world to effectively and economically utilize state of the art speed and red light cameras to improve the safety of their road network. Moreover, it successfully address constituents concerns regarding the use of these devices as revenue generators and not for road safety improvements. This topic is timely and highly relevant for road and traffic enforcement authorities and road safety advocates around the world.
