In London, England, automated speed enforcement systems have reduced speed by 10 percent, decreased all crash injuries by 20 percent, and reduced serious and fatal crash injuries by 50 percent.
- Speed has been reduced by about 10 percent
- All casualties have been reduced by about 20 percent
- Fatal and serious casualties have been reduced by about 50 percent
Based on the casualty reduction of 20 percent, the reduction in off-peak casualties would be 58 percent in three years. At an average cost of 26,580 pounds sterling per casualty, the estimated cost savings would be 1,541,640, or 513,880 pounds sterling per year.
