Situation: According to the National Transportation Safety Board, speeding accounts for nearly a third of all traffic fatalities; and according to FHA, speed cameras can reduce crashes on urban streets by 54%.
State legislation is required to allow speed cameras.
AB 645 authorizes San Francisco and a few other cities to install speed camera systems in school zones, on high injury streets and in areas with a history of speed racing and motor vehicle side shows.

Action: Call (the preferred way) or email the Assemblymembers urging them to pass AB 645 to make our streets safer.
