Why does the City elect to use Traffic Enforcement Cameras?

Keeping our citizens and visitors safe as they travel the streets of Maitland is a priority for our City. According to a recent study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a study of large cities with longstanding programs found that cameras reduced the fatal red light running crash rate by 24% and the rate of all types of fatal crashes at signalized intersections by 17%. (IIHS January 24, 2013).

The goal of this program is to reduce red light running violations, red light crashes, and red light injury crashes in a cost effective way to make the City of Maitland’s roadways safer for our citizens and visitors.
