According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, red light and speed cameras, often known as photo enforcement, are utilized in around 170 communities across the United States, with automated enforcement legislation on the slate in 15 states. However, drivers in the U.S. are split when it comes to their feelings about the use of speed cameras, says a recent survey from Erie Insurance.

According to a release from Erie, 49% of respondents support speed cameras and 35% oppose them, with some remaining neutral on the issue. However, many of those who came down in opposition to the use of the cameras were fine with their use in certain scenarios. Sixty-percent of those who were either opposed or neutral said they could support their use on roads where speeding or accidents are a documented problem or on roads frequented by bicycles and pedestrians.

This data was compiled from a survey of 500 licensed drivers over age 18 conducted by Falls & Co. on behalf of Erie Insurance between August 22 and September 2, 2021.
