Fixed SafeSpeed Systems

  • SafeSpeed’s wireless magnetic sensor system coupled with cutting edge algorithms accurately detect red light violations in both good and bad weather, 24 hours a day.

  • The sensors are small in size leading to a decrease in construction costs, and construction time.

  • The modular camera system allows the SafeSpeed system to be deployed at any approach, and can cover up to 10 lanes.

  • SafeSpeed Infrared LED Strobe light allows capture of violations at night time without lighting up the intersection. Compared to other systems this does not create a hazard to drivers on the road that can occur from typical visible light flashes.

  • An optional pairing with a cutting edge 3D Radar unit adds the ability to detect speeding violations.


Fixed SafeSpeed Systems

  • The SafeSpeed Computer System paired with the latest in camera sensor technology and image processing algorithms, allows the capture of license plates no matter the time of day, or weather.

  • The cutting edge image processing algorithms allow capture of full 6K video.

  • When SafeSpeed’s algorithms processes all of its data whether they are from magnetic sensors or radar, the system creates a violation and attaches the appropriate high resolution images, and video.

  • In the case of red light violations, the SafeSpeed camera captures a wide-angle image of the vehicle entering an intersection against a red light and another wide-angle image of the vehicle in the center of the intersection.

  • In the case of speeding violations, the SafeSpeed camera captures only one wide-angle image of the speeding vehicle.

  • For both red light and speeding violations, the high resolution image is then cropped to provide a clear close-up image of the vehicle’s license plate in any environment.

  • SafeSpeed automatically superimposes the time, date, and location of the violation on each image. For speeding violations, the vehicle’s speed is also recorded on all images.

  • The pole-mounted SafeSpeed computer stores violation data and images, and then transmits the encrypted data to our data center.


Processing Flow:

  • A violation image review technician, employed by SafeSpeed, accesses the captured images stored at the SafeSpeed data processing center, using a standard Internet browser and a secure login through an encrypted VPN.

  • If the captured images are clear and the license plate number is legible, the incident is added to the law enforcement queue to review.

  • If your law enforcement personnel conclude that a traffic violation was committed, the license plate of the vehicle is sent to the corresponding agency for registered owner information retrieval.

  • SafeSpeed places the violation images on a secure page at the website it has set up for your community in anticipation of reviewing of the images and online payment by the vehicle owner.

  • SafeSpeed prints a violation notice, which contains color images of the violation, and mails it to the registered owner of the vehicle.

  • Recipients of photo-enforcement violation notices can refer to the FAQs page on the SafeSpeed website set up for your community if they have questions.



  • Upon receipt of the violation notice, the vehicle’s registered owner can pay the fine by mailing a check or money order to SafeSpeed by paying the fine using a credit card on a secure page at the SafeSpeed website set up for your community, or calling the SafeSpeed call center.

  • If the registered owner opts to pay the fine in person at your town hall, a link with the SafeSpeed data processing center ensures that the in-person payment is accounted for in the SafeSpeed database.

  • If the registered owner opts to contest their violation, a hearing system is provided to the municipalities to hear the violators case.

  • Instead of your personnel following up on the details of unpaid photo-enforced violations, personnel from SafeSpeed will send out additional violation notices on your behalf.

  • SafeSpeed tracks all photo-enforced violation fines and penalty payments collected, and each month provides you with the total amount outstanding, along with a collection report.
