If you think that a car crash in your backyard is just an accident, think again.
According to new research by the Center for Automotive Research, people in your neighborhood are likely to be driving around with cameras in their cars, which could have a big impact on the city’s overall safety.
Researchers from the Center’s Center for Safety Research and Technology (CERS), the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, and the University at Albany have found that a third of crashes in cities nationwide were captured by cameras.
They also found that if a camera is installed in a city, it can cause an increase in crashes.
“Cities that install cameras are more likely to have fewer crashes, and more people are injured in crashes,” Sandra Capps, an associate professor of urban planning at the University’s College of the Holy Cross, told Vice News.
“If you don’t install cameras, it will make the city worse.”
The researchers said the cameras that are installed in cars also have a negative impact on public safety because they tend to increase the number of cameras on the road and cause crashes.
“It’s the drivers that are going to be hurt, but the camera cameras are a very, very large part of the problem,” Capps said.
Criminologists have long been interested in the effects of cameras installed in car seats.
Last year, researchers at the California Institute of Technology, California State University, and Stanford University published a study that showed the installation of more than 1,200 camera systems in a single neighborhood increases the number and severity of crashes.
In the new study, the researchers found that an additional 3,200 cameras were installed in New York City, which has more than 300,000 camera users.
The study also found cameras on public transit increased the number by 5.7 percent, with more than 2,600 camera systems installed in cities.
More cameras on roads increase the likelihood that people will drive through a camera, the study found.
But the impact on safety doesn’t end there.
In the study, researchers also found a positive impact on crashes that occur in a public space like a playground.
New York City had the highest number of camera-induced crashes, with about 3,500 cameras installed on the streets.
However, the majority of the cameras installed had no impact on crash rates.
When cities use cameras in public spaces, they’re incentivizing drivers to do something they normally wouldn’t do: drive on them.
According to the researchers, the public gets to decide what to do with the cameras, and they have the ability to reduce crashes.
For instance, in the study where New York had the most cameras, people were more likely than in cities without cameras to use them to film people who were in their path, which may have led to fewer crashes.
The study’s lead author, David J. O’Malley, said he hopes to see other cities adopt cameras and see how well they work.
If we can find ways to make them safer, we can make it easier to get out of the car, he said.
“We want to get to a point where we can’t get into a car on any street without seeing a camera.”
