October 8, 2002

Despite negative publicity, a survey has revealed that the public of Washington, DC favors speed cameras. The city has been using cameras to identify and ticket speeders, and results so far indicate that the program is beneficial. Proportions of speeding vehicles have reportedly declined around the city.

About half (51 percent) of the D.C. residents surveyed said they favor the cameras. Thirty-six percent said they're in opposition.
