Barbara Orban has a Ph.D. in Public Health from UCLA and more than 25 years experience as a university professor in Health Policy and Management. She teaches graduate courses in health administration and focuses her research on health systems and outcomes, including trauma systems. Recent publications include critiques of red-light traffic camera research studies conducted by special interests. Her findings demonstrate how special interests used unscientific methods and incorrectly reported results to advance the notion that ticket cameras provide a safety benefit. In contrast, scientific research concludes that ticket cameras are associated with increases in crashes and injures. It should be noted that motor vehicle safety was recognized by the CDC as one of the top 10 Public Health accomplishments of the 20th century, and was primarily achieved by automobile and roadway engineering improvements, increased safety belt use, and decreased driving under the influence.
