I suspect you could select select 29 cameras that showed an increase in fatalities by 100% if you tried hard enough.

It is a BS claim for a BS system. If it is a real claim.

I would have to see the area along with other factors that may be involved before I could be remotely interested in such a claim. there was a similar claim some years ago relating to a camera location where sats dropped dramatically in the camera location.....yep! they had built a bypass so no one was using the route through the town. :roll: But it was great publicity for a time.

Sounds like a classic case of RTTM to me :) Worthy of a closer check though if you fancy digging into it I am happy to do a PR - but I am upto my eyes in things at the minute (v frustratingly).
