Speed Monitory Awareness Radar Trailer (SMART)  

The Speed Monitory Awareness radar Trailer (SMART) is currently available for use in neighborhoods, school zones, construction sites, and dangerous roads where the speed of vehicles could be a problem. The unit is portable, self-contained speed display device that is towed to sites experiencing speed related problems. Specifically designed radar is mounted inside the locked trailer, clocking speeders. Motorists see their speeds displayed on a highly visible mounted electronic display. The speed limit sign below the display reminds motorists to pay attention and obey the posted speed limit.

As on-board computer collects information pertaining to date, time and speed of each vehicle that passes it. With this information, the police department is able to appropriately dispatch road officers on the right day and times to enforce speed limits.

As speed awareness goes up, motorists slow down even after the unit is moved to a different location. With fewer speed related accidents, officers’ time is freed up, and they can concentrate their efforts on other issues. Plus, citizens feel safer, which is what compliance with the speed limit is all about: safety.
