Traffic cameras seem to be everywhere — recording vehicles coming and going — and sometimes even catching an accident. Videos can help answer questions about who was at fault, but many of these traffic cam videos are overwritten in a relatively short time period. The freeway traffic cams around Milwaukee, for example, are only saved for 72 hours.
On occasion, if the state traffic operation center becomes aware of an accident, it will save the video of the accident. The best way to increase your chance of obtaining that video, however, is to make a request promptly following an accident. We can assist our clients in getting these videos, which may help resolve a case.
