Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) is the utilization of computer technology to monitor vehicle speeds and record images of those in violation of the posted speed limit.

The ASE system automatically detects and measures the speed of a vehicle, identifies those vehicles exceeding the speed limit, and photographs the vehicles in violation.

After the data is verified and approved by the police department, a notice of violation is mailed to the registered vehicle owner.

Automated speed enforcement is extremely important to the safety of any community. B&W Sensors, LLC provides ASE through its Multiple Vehicle Speed Tracking (MVST™) system, which has the ability to improve long term behavior of drivers in safety-minded communities across the country.

Speed does kill.

Aggressive driving (driving too fast for the conditions or running red lights) is the cause of 30-50 percent of crashes that result in fatalities or incapacitating injuries.  
Reduce Speeding
Modify driving behavior

B&W Sensors’ system has been successful in reducing the number of speeders by 70-90 percent in a given location. Studies show that photo enforcement programs result in crash and fatality reductions of 20 percent or more.

Reduce Accidents
Increase public safety

The World Health Organization data shows that pedestrians have a 90 percent chance of surviving a crash if the driver is going less than 20 mph. If the driver is going over 30 mph, the chance of a pedestrian surviving is less than 50 percent.

Protect Law Enforcement Personnel
Reduce exposure in high risk areas

From 2002-2011, 140 members of law enforcement in the United States were killed on duty after being struck by a vehicle while making a traffic stop.

Lessen Impact on Public Health Resources
Saves lives, money and time

In 2005, the National Highway Traffic Administration estimated that the economic cost to society of speed-related crashes is more than $40 Billion each year. 
  • Increases likelihood of detection
  • Improves traffic flow due to fewer speed-related accidents and fewer blocked intersections
  • Reduces median speed and crash rates in enforced zones, as well as spillover to other areas
  • Supplements current speed enforcement initiatives
  • Allows police officers to be utilized for more important assignments in the community
  • Proven to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities
  • Ultimately, saves lives
