A total of 33 cameras will be installed across the city
As part of a pilot program that’s bringing speed camera technology to the city’s most dangerous streets, San Jose is gearing up to install 33 of the devices next year at high-risk intersections, with the ultimate goal of reducing the dozens of people killed and hundreds severely injured each year in traffic collisions.
This year, 45 people in San Jose have died from traffic-related incidents. Of those deaths, 24 were pedestrians. Last year saw 65 deaths, the highest number of fatalities in the city’s modern history.
Signed into law in September, AB 645 is the first-time speed cameras will be brought to California’s roads.
