Speed equals Accident, or not?

So apparently with the speed cameras out of commission due to a legal glitch (read: incompetence), we all took the law into our own hands and turned the streets of Joburg into a racetrack.

And now they’re all so happy that the cameras are back online.

The one question everyone is failing to ask:

When the cameras were down and everyone was “speeding”, did the accident rate increase? Not a “could” or “would” answer, please. Did the number of accidents on Joburg roads increase when there were no speed traps active?

Why didn’t anybody M&G ask the real question?
