A response to unfounded criticisms of Burkey and Obeng (2004) made by the IIHS (2005)
AbstractAbstract: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety mailed an essay written by Richard Retting and Sergey Kyrychenko (IIHS, 2005) to many universities and individuals where they accused my coauthor and me of being Junk Scientists. This has become a typical pattern for the IIHS, attacking every study that fails to find a benefit of Red Light Cameras, but never criticizing work that supports their beliefs. In this paper I defend my work against their claims, and pose the question: Who are the real junk scientists?
