I was a frequent highway driver when photo radar was in effect. There was a noticeable lowering in the average speeds when it went into effect, and noticeable subsequent rise when it was cynically cancelled as a political sop.

Photo radar isn't intended just to 'catch' bad drivers. It's to create safer overall conditions on our streets, presumably in the same way that video surveillance deters crime.

My observations on average highway speeds before and after photo radar are subjective of course, but I would love to see the stats on accident/injury rates before and after.
