Just brilliant, but i don't think police and town hall will agree with this idea for 2 reasons :
1. there will be fewer tickets;
2. some of that money will go to law abiding drivers O:)
so Police's and Hall's funds will diminish
(not good for business >:) )

Before watching the video, just after reading speeding camera lottery, an idea occurred to me that government should pay people who drive at safe limits on average of that person.
Government can pay it by charging the over speeding lols...
guess what , video was same and PRACTICAL

I'm happy

One of the ways for people to change their behaviour is by rewarding good behaviour. If you only punish people for bad behaviour, their behaviour would not change. They just become more ambivalent towards trafficrules. This type of rewarding is called Behaviourism, and has the well known Dr. Pavlov and Dr. Skinner as foundingfathers.

This is a great way, and a great example, of behaviourism and its positive effects. Only the government does not wish to give up its income :(

I do think they agreed on This, i heard about this on the radio.
The police in Sweden are quite hard when its about speed limit 30km/h.
Due there is school or something simular nearby.

This was made Wolkswagen and NTF (Nationalorganisation for Trafic safty) or something simulair to that :D

"Token economy" started when most of us where very little and got stickers for being nice troughout the day :). It still works when we are adults. It's got to be rewarded for good things. Our society's focus on what we do wrong all the time but THAT perspective is wrong on it's own. That's my opinion.

I wonder if traffic congestion increased at the intersections where the lottery cameras were because of drivers going round and round the same block hoping to increase their odds of being a winner.
This lottery was a very good thing, in my town the traffic cameras can cost you a fine, but never give you a reward.

#7 Very good point there are some cheap asses out there that would try that and it could ruin the idea very fast but if its placed on a road with very little chance of a uturn and a massive distance to complete the loop it wouldent be worth your while in petrol.

Speed cameras are on their way out in many cities, for several reasons.

They cost cities money to maintain, The tickets are challenged much more often, they don't prevent accidents, and they don't catch people driving drunk.

This might have the same effect as speed cameras have. People focus much more on their actual speed than on their driving, which can result to more accidents. This is why speed cameras have been criticised so much.

Speed cameras have never been about preventing accidents. They are and always have been simply a money making mechanism, a stealth tax on motorists.

I don't think the speed dropped because of the program encouraging good behavior. They did after all, give tickets to those that sped!

#15 Speedcameras have always been about preveting people for speeding and in that way trying to stop an accident from happening. You couldn't be more wrong with your statement. I dont think you can say to the parents of whoms child just been run over by a car speeding on a 30-road "Atleast we got to fee the man who were speeding!". It's 30 because children cannot see the difference of fun and danger in early ages so they may run out into the streets and when youre traveling at a higher speed than 30 the stoping distance is beyond the child, that equals severe damage or death.

#17 Why are you letting your "early ages" children play in the street? Seems like something a parent should take responsibility for overseeing.

#18 With early ages i mean like 4-6 year olds. In stockholm, where the footage is shot, there are many schools which lie by populated roads, hence the 30-limit. As it is a city there are playgrounds but usually not at the same place where the school is and the children must therefore travel by foot, often accompanied by an adult but you may oversee like 20 children and its not hard for one of them to get curious of something and run away. Everyone does not live in a suburb or in some village.

Two things.....1) this not a test of the lottery aspect. You don't know if it was fear of the fine or desire of the prize. Bad science at best. you would first need to put up a camera and wait until the locals were used to it then see if adding an incentive changes behavior further. 2) it is fascinating to see how many of you good little socialists in the comments are so ready to fix a problem by redistributing wealth from the "guilty" to totally uninvolved parties and not to pay for the system you want to be in control in the first place. The world is truly going to hell. Our thought process is totally warped as it relates to cause and effect, right and wrong.
