Research has shown that speed cameras reduce motor vehicle speeds and crashes. Cameras havebeen used extensively in jurisdictions such as Victoria, Australia, and Great Britain, and much less oftenin the United States and Canada. They have been controversial wherever used. We describe thedevelopment of camera programs in Victoria and Britain and discuss the types of controversies that havearisen, the techniques used to address them, and what North America can learn from this experience.
