U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s unveiled a 42 point road safety plan last Thursday that includes the promotion of ‘speed safety cameras.’
Buttigieg’s plan is backed by $42 billion in funding from the Biden administration’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure plan.
Nonpartisan motorist advocate groups are against the plan. This includes the National Motorists Association, which argues that speed cameras do not contribute to safer roads.
“With properly posted speed limits and properly installed traffic-control devices, there is no need for ticket cameras,” the group says on their website. “They can actually make our roads less safe.
Currently, eight U.S. states have laws specifically prohibiting speed cameras.
Indiana law neither prohibits nor allows speed cameras.
