  • Abstract:
    Speeding is a major factor in a large proportion of traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities in the United States. Automated speed enforcement (ASE) is one effective countermeasure for reducing speeding and crashes. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) co-published the Speed Enforcement Camera Systems Operational Guidelines (2008) to assist State and local agencies to plan and operate ASE systems as a component of comprehensive speed management programs. This survey, conducted in 2011-2012, examined the protocols and practices of U.S. law enforcement agencies in the deployment and implementation of ASE, public perceptions of fairness, and the nature of communication by communities regarding any positive outcomes of ASE operations. It also examined the alignment of existing ASE programs with FHWA/NHTSA Guidelines. The authors identified 107 U.S. jurisdictions with ASE programs as of October 2011, located in 12 States and the District of Columbia (91 currently active, 15 discontinued, and 1 agency that had both currently active and discontinued components of their ASE program). The authors mailed each of the 107 jurisdictions a questionnaire with follow-ups conducted by mail, e-mail, phone, and site visit. Completed questionnaires were received from 90 agencies (84% response rate). Highlights from the findings are presented in this document.
