About this session

Streets designed for safety have been proven to not only reduce traffic injuries and fatalities but also have the potential to remove the need for police traffic enforcement. Similarly, automated solutions, including red-, speed- and bus lane cameras, can save lives and replace traditional traffic enforcement by police officers, while avoiding the risk of biased policing and excessive use of force with extreme racial disparities. As communities around the country reexamine the purview of their police departments, investing in streets that are primarily self-enforced as opposed to police-enforced has the potential to both save lives in traffic and address structural racism.
