SA's hidden cams and speed traps not proven to reduce crashes - JPSA
The Justice Project South Africa (JPSA) has questioned the effectiveness of hidden speed traps in making the country's roads safer.
The organisation’s Howard Dembovsky says there is no local evidence to prove that these concealed cameras effectively save lives.
Dembovsky has questioned whether hidden speed cameras are put in place to save lives, or whether their purpose is to generate revenue.
