TOPIC: INSTALLING RED- LIGHT CAMERAS I would like to request that the Department of Public Safety (DPS) consider the idea of installing red-light cameras at traffic signals where students cross the road to get to USC. By doing so, this will allow the students to safely cross the road and get to campus. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety , 22 percent of all traffic accidents in the United States are caused by drivers running red lights. Every year, these accidents kill some 800 people and rack up an estimated $7 billion dollars in property damage, medical bills, lost productivity and insurance hikes. And this sort of traffic violation seems to be on the rise. In many areas, red-light violations have increased by 10 percent or more since the 1980s. To curb this trend, more and more cities are installing red-light cameras . These fully automated devices collect all of the evidence authorities need to prosecute individuals who run red-lights. If a camera catches you speeding through the intersection, you can expect a ticket (along with a photograph of the violation) to arrive in your mailbox a month or two later. I would like to discuss the following in this memo: Need and Benefits Results, Criticisms and Feasibility Proposal
