New England region's six states launched the first ever coordinated 'crackdown' on speeding and failure to wear seat belts in the area. Titled the "New England Drive to Save Lives" campaign, local and state police are targeting violators on Interstates 91 and 95 this week. The second phase will include highways and secondary roads across the region.
LTI's UltraLyte and TruSpeed
Laser Speed Guns
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding is a factor in 30 percent of all fatal accidents nationwide. There are more than 30,000 people killed on our nation's roads each year.
Michael Geraci, regional administrator for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, stated "We strongly believe that this collaborative effort ... will heighten motorists' awareness and hopefully reduce the number of speed-related crashes throughout our region."
Laser Technology, Inc. (LTI) has specialized in Lidar for many years and introduced the very first laser speed device in 1991 to the world. We are dedicated to providing technology that helps officers and agencies save lives. Our speed enforcement devices including the Ultralyte laser speed gun and the TruSpeed series will be on hand to assist officers during this campaign.
