      Richmond joins a growing list of cities turning to speed cameras. Traffic fatalities have risen sharply over the past decade, and safety advocates around the country are desperately searching for anything that will get drivers to slow down. They've earned the endorsement of prominent safety advocates, including Jonathan Adkins, the CEO of the Governors Highway Safety Association. "Automated enforcement works," Adkins said. "For lack of a better term, it sucks to get a ticket. It changes your behavior."

      Visibility will soon improve at California’s intersections once enforcement begins on the state’s new "daylighting" law. The new law is expected to save lives by increasing visibility around both marked and unmarked crosswalks. Daylighting creates a buffer zone of 20 feet from crosswalks, meaning cars and trucks cannot park where they might block the views of both pedestrians and drivers.
