by admin 18. February 2011 07:55

Can you read the bumper stickers on the car in front of you? If so, you're probably following too closely.

With this device, police can know the distance between two cars and their speeds. Nampa PD has seen an increase in accidents near the Garrity interchange and have determined that most of those crashes were caused by drivers who were following too closely.

Laser Technology UltraLyte Speed Guns Used by Lakewood Police to Enforce Speed Limit

by admin 22. January 2011 14:21

Fox 31 KDVR-TV, Denver, Colorado Reports on Notorious Speeding Area -

Lakewood police are trying to find new ways to enforce the law inside an area where it is nearly impossible ton enforce the speed limit. A 2 mile stretch of 6th Avenue in Lakewood has earned its own nickname - "the shoots" - which is protected by high sound barrier walls making it nearly impossible to catch the speeders. It's an area where there is no safe place for officers to pull over speeding drivers or for police to stand with a radar gun. In this report it shows how the police have started using a highpowered long distance laser speed gun developed by Laser Technology to help step up enforcement in this area. The "shoots" is one of the busiest stretches in the metro area and also ranked in 2009 as one of the top 10 places for accidents.

Watch the video on how the police are trying to enforce laws in a notorious speeding area.

Clackamus County had over 13,000 crashes last year and their Sheriff department was the first one in the United States to test DBC (distance-between-cars) technology in the United States. Deputy John Naccarato, Traffic Supervisor for Clackamus County contacted Laser Technology as he found out about the DBC technology that LTI had developed and saw it was being used in Canada and Europe but nowhere in the United States. He became very interested in it due to the amount of accidents that were occurring because of tailgating violations and felt it would be very beneficial if they had it to use in their agency.
