Guide for Determining Readiness for Speed Cameras and Other Automated Enforcement
The Guide for Determining Readiness for Speed Cameras and Other Automated Enforcement is particularly designed to address the questions of many countries who are considering the introduction of a speed camera program, or similar automated system. These technologies are, on the whole, effective, but require extensive ground work to ensure their benefits - and many countries have not yet engaged in this ground work but are considering these systems.
Questions a country must answer prior to implementing automated enforcement systems can include: are most vehicles registered? Do they have a readable identification/number/registration plate for the camera? Do records allow for the owner/driver to be contacted through their home address or mobile number?
For countries not yet prepared for automated enforcement systems, this guide sets out a path of development and lists the necessary areas of focus prior to the introduction of speed cameras. Like any system, it is important not to expect perfection from speed cameras or similar systems, only a reasonable level of performance.
