Optotraffic is an industry leader in deploying automated speed and red light enforcement systems in safety enforcement zones such as schools. In addition to the obvious risk for children when vehicles are speeding in school zones, during the past decade at least 120 school crossing guards nationwide have been killed while on duty. With enforcement provided for over 250 schools in Prince George's County, Maryland alone, our team has the expertise to increase public safety in your jurisdiction for children, adults and motorists alike.
For example, a recent independent study in four Maryland suburban municipalities showed a consistent - sometimes dramatic - reduction in vehicle speed and accidents when our automated speed enforcement systems are used near schools. All four jurisdictions using Optotraffic systems showed safety improvement, including in one case, a nearly 900 percent increase in drivers obeying the posted speed limit.
