Metro Transit Uses Surveillance Video to Encourage Safe Use of Madison StreetsSafe Streets

On Monday, November 3, Mayor Paul Soglin and Metro Transit General Manager Chuck Kamp held a press conference to release a video compiled of safety-related incidents captured by Metro bus surveillance cameras.

At the press conference, Mayor Soglin and Chuck Kamp discussed incidents seen in this video to raise awareness and encourage everyone in the community to share the streets safely. “The goal of this press conference is to increase safety for everyone, and prevent accidents” Kamp said. “If by releasing this video we were able to raise awareness enough to even prevent one bad accident, then we would consider this outreach a success.”

The video released at this press conference is now available. Metro will use this video and a recording of this press conference to spearhead a safe streets reminder campaign in the spring when all these modes of traffic are again back out in the street in large numbers.
