Please see About AutoSpeedWatch for more detail. The very presence of the system works as a deterrent and modifies driver behaviours. Statistics are also available from the unit but, if you want anonymous traffic survey data you may get better results with a dedicated traffic logging device.
Installation is simple and quick. This AutoSpeedWatch Roadside unit is designed for mounting on a sturdy vertical roadside pole of at least 76mm diameter and is mounted such that it takes a picture of the rear of a passing speeding vehicle. Each unit comes complete with a high-security fixing suitable for poles of diameter 76mm-120mm, but other fixings are available in our accessories category. As with all public facing cameras you'll need to adhere to the BSCC guidelines and we advise you to use special signs to assist doing so; it's not onerous and we even provide draft Privacy Impact Assessment and Camera Policy to assist you (when your order is complete go to "My Account" > "My Orders" > "Downloads" to retrieve). Most forces understand the benefits the system brings and will support
you. You do not require their approval, however we
suggest you check what response can be expected before purchasing. You
will however need Highways approval to install on the highway (but not on private land).
The first year (from date of purchase) of data connectivity is included. 2nd and subsequent years will require a data plan to maintain connectivity and access to the system; this being the only on-going cost; there are no other subscription-type costs, and maintenance is usually just a case of keeping the unit clean! Autospeedwatch Limited and it's use of the system has been certified compliant with the guidelines and the BSCC codes of practice.
