I doubt this will go well considering the opposition and the program being scrapped in 95.
Now if you ask some seriously concerned parents how many accidents are caused by speed, they wont know the answer. MTO released in 2012 that it was only about 5.6% of accidents. Along with that pedestrians have to follow the same rules as cars do. If someone comes out suddenly when im travelling a normal speed and gets hit by my car, and fault determination rules them at fault, why are we obliged to install cameras and lower speed limits?

I guess, but that will happen everywhere no matter what. I live near a school and hardly see any speeding and it is never enforced. I havent even heard of anyone get injured or killed from an accident in a school zone near where I live. The fact is speed cameras have been proven to be ineffective at reducing fatalities. Many states have removed them for cases of the company redflex which operates most of these cameras in the world for bribes involving city officials and the CEO of redflex.
The other thing is the definition of community safety zones. The municipalities have there own discretion at what they define as a community safety zone, but now they are saying areas under 80k. Many municipalities have lowered limits on some streets to unreasonably low speed and even the local police know when they are conducting speed enforcement.
Having said that, I now live in the Uk where there are speed cameras everywhere and it really does keep the speeds down. The difference is that there are so many cameras here that if you speed you WILL get a ticket whereas random radar vans don't have the same effect because people like to roll the dice.
