Traffic cameras

In the last few days, Cbus announced the addition of more traffic cameras. Here is an interesting take on them. People respond to incentives.


  1. This is kinda cool. I heard a news headline today about Columbus adding more red-light cameras throughout the city. The person in charge noted that these are a "negative deterrent" rather than a positive one since if you get busted you pay a ticket. Obeying the law and not running red-lights has no "positive" benefit to drivers (at least monetarily).

    I think part of the same series brought out the piano stare case at a subway stop... give me a minute and I'll find the video link.

  2. Obviously you just need to watch the entire video to see the related piano stairs video.
