Siemens has announced it’s received Home Office Type-Approval for its SafeZone II average speed enforcement system, meaning that evidence from the system is now fully admissible in court.
SafeZone II uses ANPR technology to provide speed enforcement between pairs of its Sicore II cameras, and can provide three lane coverage with one camera.
The company says that the ability to provide three-lane coverage with just a single camera makes it cost-effective for residential, city, rural and motorway enforcements.
Commenting on the news, Noel Frost, Head of Global Enforcement for Siemens Mobility’s Intelligent Traffic Systems business, said, “Through digitalisation, Siemens Mobility is committed to providing transit operators the latest in intelligent infrastructure solutions and following a lengthy and rigorous approval process, we now have a fantastic solution for the UK that completely redefines the market in terms of image quality, precision and performance.
“SafeZone II is a robust solution which is proven to smooth traffic flow, reduce congestion and deliver high levels of speed limit compliance. We are now looking forward to working with authorities to help them achieve its wide-ranging safety, performance and environmental benefits”.
