24 Hour Speeding Cameras may be the Answer to Increased Car Accidents

24 Hour Speeding Cameras may be the Answer to Increased Car Accidents

After twelve New Yorkers were killed in car accidents in one week alone, city transit advocates say the city can combat the issue by keeping the speed cameras on all night.

A new study has found that a majority of all traffic deaths occurred during the hours between 10 pm and 6 am, exactly when the speed cameras are turned off.

Department of Transportation Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez strongly believes the cameras should be rolling 24 hours a day.

“New York City should have the complete authority to use…the street cameras,” he said. “We need to hold dangerous and reckless drivers accountable for their actions.”

Traffic deaths and traffic injuries have increased tremendously in recent months, according to Transportation Alternatives.

Speeding cameras may be a major factor since there’s been a 72% decline in speeding at camera locations. 

Mayor Eric Adams has promised to fix dangerous intersections and add more protected areas for cyclists and pedestrians.
