TIN news:   Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) has selected the SafeZone average speed detection system from Siemens to improve safety and speed compliance in Brighton and Hastings.
The speed detection systems will be integrated with the back-office penalty notice processing facility run by Sussex Safer Roads Partnership.
SSRP operations manager Mark Trimmer said: “The aim of the SafeZone cameras is to reduce the speed vehicles travel along the seafront at Brighton, in order to reduce the risk of a serious collision.
“It is hoped the cameras will provide a safe environment for local residents and visitors to one of the county’s most popular visitor destinations.
“The seafront at Hastings is prone to speeding and overtaking at all hours of the day, and the road is still a main thoroughfare to the other side of the county.
“To contend with the large number of visitors Hastings gets, average speed cameras will be installed to maintain a safe environment along one of the busiest roads.”
"It is hoped the cameras will provide a safe environment for local residents and visitors to one of the county’s most popular visitor destinations."
Three SafeZone cameras will be deployed on Brighton’s Marine Parade West, Madeira Drive, and Marine Parade East. Two cameras will be deployed on the A259 Grosvenor Crescent and Marina East in Hastings.
SafeZone is based on automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology.
The technology will be used by SSRP in identifying all the vehicles that enter enforcement zones, as well as to calculate average speed over a measured distance travelled within the zone.
Evidential records will be created only of those vehicles that violate speed limits. These records will be sent remotely to the back-office in-station for processing through a fixed communications network
