Automated Traffic Enforcement
“Automated Traffic Enforcement captures a photograph or video of a speeding vehicle or has neglected to come to a full stop at a stop sign or red light . As a vehicle enters the radar beam it is detected and the speed is calculated. When the end of the vehicle is detected and if that vehicle’s speed exceeds the posted speed limit for a particular location, the system sets off an audible alarm and takes a photo. During low light periods, a flash is incorporated to enhance the image.”
Automated Traffic Enforcement is used:
-to enforce speeding violations in locations where it is unsafe for police officers to conduct manual enforcement; or,
-in areas where the safety of pedestrians, construction zone workers, or other drivers might be compromised by a manned traffic stop.
The use of automated traffic enforcement significantly reduces speeding. It is proven to reduce collisions and the resulting injuries. Our bodies are fragile and even a small difference in speed can mean the difference between life and death. This is especially true for pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists. You can play your part by staying within the speed limit and driving to the conditions. Remember that a speed limit is a maximum travel speed, not merely a guide.
