Pedestrian safety is a serious issue, and we all want safe streets. Connecticut needs to invest in real solutions, like traffic calming and pedestrian-supportive infrastructure, instead of putting more money into police surveillance. Red light cameras result in increasing police surveillance, while ignoring real solutions and people’s actual safety needs. We need to invest in walkable cities, not more policing. The ACLU-CT is opposed to the use of speed and red light cameras because of the significant due process, privacy, and racial justice threats these cameras pose.
