Speeding convictions are set to increase as the technology moves into the 21st century. The latest speed guns incorporate video which can record the car, its driver as well as date, time and speed. The TruCam speed trap is expected to be available to all police stations in the UK and is so portable that all traffic police will be able to carry one with them at all times and use at will. The manufacturer, Tele-Traffic, is the biggest manufacturer of law enforcement equipment in the UK.

They say that the new camera will save the police time and money and result in more convictions as a result of the camera being able to record speed and video.

It will also make it more difficult for drivers to say they weren’t driving the car at the time to save points on their licence.

Tele-Traffic’s head of sales, Mike Ricketts said ‘This new device collects more data simultaneously than traditional cameras and all that evidence gives the police a greater chance of getting a conviction.’

He added, ‘Without footage the policeman has to pull motorists over at the side of the road to show them the reading.’ Two officers need to be present to confirm this.

Motorists therefore know immediately if they have broken a speed limit. Some cameras mounted on motorway gantries, for example, can record a speeding motorist who will know nothing until his fine arrives in the post which some say defeats the object.

Being stopped by the police and given a ticket has a very positive effect on the right foot. The new technology will enable the captured data to be stored on a memory stick which can be processed for fines to be issued.

The footage can even be sent as a JPEG file by email to the offender if he disputes the conviction. Frightening or what? Do you have any views on this, why not share them with us? By Graham Hill
