A modern speed camera has been installed in the village of Egiertowo (Pomeranian Voivodeship). As Maciej Tyburcy, chief specialist of the installation department of the Center for Automatic Traffic Supervision (CANARD, an organizational unit of the General Inspectorate of Road Transport), explained in an interview with TVN Turbo, it is a French MESTA Fusion RN device.
The device can track up to thirty vehicles simultaneously
– First of all, it has information about which lane the registered vehicle is moving on. This enables him to pinpoint who is committing the offense with greater precision. He has a better quality camera, so the face is more readable – said Tyburcy.
He added that “the device can track up to thirty vehicles simultaneously, record violations of up to four lanes.”
Aleksander Dębski, product manager at Sprint, admitted that the term “the most modern speed camera in Poland” is not an exaggeration in this case. – Poland is entering the 21st century of speed cameras, because the technology of devices that have been installed and operated so far was developed at the turn of the 21st century – he explained
– In addition to measuring speed, this speed camera has many other interesting options, for example, testing overtaking in a prohibited place, distance from vehicles, traffic trajectory – he enumerated.
He noted that “the device will now only work in the speed measurement mode.” “It is to be expected that sooner or later the inspection will also use other possibilities,” he stressed.
How many new speed cameras?
Maciej Zwoliński, head of the CANARD installation department, announced that “nine such devices will appear in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, 147 throughout Poland, 7 of which will be in completely new locations where there has been no recording device so far.”
Earlier, the Center for Automatic Road Traffic Surveillance reported that as part of exchange of speed cameras in Poland 100 new Multaradar CD devices will also be installed.
