Western Australia police: Greater speed detection effectiveness using PoliScanspeed

(PresseBox) (Wiesbaden, ) Through deployment of PoliScanspeed, 58 percent more vehicles were detected exceeding the speed limit in Western Australia than in the previous twelve months. The Western Australia police force recently published these figures in its latest annual report for the year to 30 June 2011. “This performance is attributed to the improved effectiveness of new VITRONIC digital speed cameras”, the report states.

According to the report, 13.7 million vehicles were measured between July 2010 and June 2011. Of these 26.1 percent were detected travelling in excess of the speed limit. Over the previous four years, this proportion was consistently between 16.1 percent and 17 percent. These independently published results demonstrate that the Western Australia police have now joined a long list of PoliScan users who have reported outstanding performance results following introduction of the VITRONIC system.

PoliScanspeed is a LIDAR based speed enforcement system from VITRONIC. The innovative laser technology allows measuring without in-road equipment such as loops or sensors. The system is capable of operating in challenging situations such as multi-lane roads with significant traffic volumes, road work zones and bends. It even operates with vehicles tailgating, travelling adjacent to other vehicles or changing lanes.

The system is in use worldwide as a mobile or a stationary solution and significantly enhances road safety in numerous European countries, the USA, Australia and the Middle East.
