Vehicles driven over the speed limit are a problem everywhere, particularly in areas where people are either nearby or crossing the road. Such areas often have a reduced speed limit to minimize accidents, and include school zones, hospitals, residential areas or other places with a high volume of pedestrians, especially children and elderly people.
The SWSS (Speed Warning Safety System) not only enforces the speed limit but also acts as a warning system (to both driver and pedestrian).
The unique multi-tracking radar means that vehicles can start to be detected at a distance of 150 metres (490 feet). This long tracking time enables both the pedestrian and the driver to be warned at an early stage. The standard system uses an audible alarm to warn the pedestrian in the area and a visual alarm to warn the driver of the vehicle.
