ARSC conference 2017

Research is increasingly identifying the benefits of incorporating the principles of procedural justice within road policing interventions. We have developed an intervention for use with camera detected speed camera offences. This intervention uses a letter that incorporates the principles of procedural justice as well as key road safety messages. Using randomised control trial conditions, we aim to test whether experimental drivers who receive the procedurally just letter alongside their camera detected infringement notice have more positive perceptions of police and speed enforcement, and commit less repeat speeding offences than control drivers receiving the traditional traffic infringement notice without the letter.
