Fredericton residents support installing red light cameras

HALIFAX, NS September 6, 2017:  Fredericton City Council has recently discussed installing red light cameras in the city’s most dangerous intersections to prevent speeding and running red lights. These cameras would record license places and send tickets to owners of offending vehicles. According to the most recent survey conducted by Corporate Research Associates Inc., a sizeable majority of Fredericton residents support the installation of red light cameras.

Specifically, three-quarters (77%) of residents in the Fredericton area completely or mostly support installing red light cameras to prevent speeding and running red lights. Meanwhile, two in ten (20%) oppose installing such devices, and two percent do not know or do not offer an opinion on the matter.

“There is overwhelming support among residents in the Fredericton area for the use of red light cameras to prevent speeding and running red lights,” said Don Mills, Chairman and CEO of Corporate Research Associates Inc. “It is an unusually high level of support and certainly provides City Council the license to undertake such a measure with the confidence of public support.”

These results are part of the CRA Urban Report, an independent telephone survey of 400 Fredericton (Census Agglomeration [CA]) adult residents, 18 years of age or older, conducted from July 21 to August 6, 2017. Overall results are accurate to within ±4.9 percentage points, 95 out of 100 times.
