Company 3M Profile 3M helps enforce safer traffic speeds with ANPR www.its-ukreview.org 65 Speeding motorists cost lives – that is an undisputed fact. But even with this knowledge, endless campaigns and tougher penalties for those who do break the law, it is still a significant problem on the nation’s roads. In 2013 more than three thousand people were killed or seriously injured (KSI) in road accidents where speed was a contributing factor. And in the year to September 2014 there was an increase nationally of four percent on the previous year in the total number of KSI accidents. Digital Video Speed Enforcement System These worrying figures demonstrate the importance of road safety products. 3M, the diversified technology company, is working to help combat this problem with a range of innovative and market leading products. The company’s Home Office Type Approved Average Speed Camera System tracks the speed of drivers over a longer period of time, encouraging motorists to travel at a safer speed for more of their journey. By using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) over a fixed section of road, the cameras create a time, date and location file for each vehicle and, if they reach the next camera sooner than they should have, a violation is clocked. With the Department for Transport predicting there will be 43 percent more traffic on the country’s roads by 2040, appropriate safety measures are essential. 3M has created a variety of products, along with the Average Speed Camera System, to tackle these issues.
