Cameras to catch speeding on NJ roads? Illegal now but public could support it

July 12, 2022

The idea of automated speed cameras along roadways may get more support from the public, as well as policymakers, if the technology were promoted as a way to reduce racial profiling by law enforcement.

That’s according to a new study out of Rutgers University.

But it doesn’t appear the findings will move the needle much in New Jersey, one of many states that prohibit speed cameras by law.

The study published in the journal Transportation Research Interdisciplinary Perspectives surveyed nearly 1,500 U.S. adults about their views on racial profiling, policing, and trust in police.
