WHIO-TV in Dayton had a news story today on this topic and the effect of turning off the cameras. Police argue that a 40% spike in crashes this past year was in part due to the absence of cameras.

Cameras, cameras, becoming commonplace in our everyday world, although not at the same level as the British.
