Do speed cameras change our driving habits? Anecdotally, yes. For me, at least, they work. In the last three years, the city of Ottawa recently started putting up speed cameras — mostly around school zones, but also in other community safety areas — with the intent of reducing speeding, or at the very least reducing speeding in those particular zones. I can tell you that it has worked for me because in those zones and other areas with similar speed limits or immediate surroundings, I tend to stick to the speed limit.
