Camera

The only Average Speed camera currently in use within Devon and Cornwall is the SPECS system.  This is an average speed system operated over a number of zones where entry and exit to each zone are calculated for an average speed. It uses Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology to identify a vehicle and calculate the average speed taken to travel between two points.  The cameras at either end of the zone record the registration number of every passing vehicle.  Each record is time and date stamped and the average speed is calculated.  If the speed exceeds the preset value, a digital image of the vehicle is taken and stored with the number plate data as a recorded speeding offence.
