We use a variety of fixed safety cameras to detect speeding vehicles and non-compliance with red-lights. All cameras are Home Office Type approved and calibrated on a regular basis, by the camera manufacturer.
GATSO SPEED CAMERA
This is a fixed speed camera, which monitors receding traffic. With this equipment, a radar beam is emitted from the housing across the road. As a vehicle travels through the beam, the device calculates the vehicle’s speed. If the speed is above the pre-set speed prosecution parameter, the equipment takes
two photographs 0.5 seconds apart.
These two images along with the white ladder markings painted onto the road surface provide a secondary check to ensure that the equipment is working correctly.
We currently use:
