Optimizing Traffic Enforcement: From the Lab to the Roads [chapter]

Ariel Rosenfeld, Oleg Maksimov, Sarit Kraus
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Efficient traffic enforcement has been conclusively shown to reduce high-risk driving behaviors and thus reduce accidents.  ...  To address this potential shortcoming, in [23], we introduced a novel algorithmic solution, based on efficient optimization of the allocation of police resources, which relies on the prediction of accidents  ...  in part by by a grant from the Ministry of Science & Technology, Israel.  ...

Life and Death in the Fast Lane: Police Enforcement and Traffic Fatalities

Gregory DeAngelo, Benjamin Hansen
2014 American Economic Journal: Economic Policy  
This paper estimates the causal e¤ect of police on tra¢ c fatalities and injuries. Due to simultaneity, estimating the causal e¤ect of police enforcement on crime is often di¢ cult.  ...  The subsequent decrease in enforcement corresponds with a 10 to 20 percent increase in injuries and fatalities on highways, with the strongest e¤ects under fair weather conditions and outside of city-limits  ...  Once again, the majority of the OLS results are similar to those from the Poisson models.  ...
