How Automated Enforcement Can Perpetuate Inequities in Transportation

Wednesday, May 3, 2023

In the wake of the killings and harassment of Black and Brown people at the hands of law enforcement, automated enforcement (AE) is being touted as an alternative solution to community safety. The Transportation Equity Caucus (TEC) leads a discussion about how automated traffic enforcement has the potential to perpetuate bias and disparities, increase fines and fees, and increase surveillance and incarceration in BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) communities. We also discuss equitable and just alternative safety strategies that prioritize historically marginalized communities. The TEC is committed to creating safe communities for all.
