New Police Device Can Track 30 Potential Speeders At a Time


Police officers and their radar guns can only catch one speeder at a time. Speed cameras are in the same boat, though they can photograph more than an officer handing out tickets. But both of these methods may soon step aside for a new device is that can track more than 30 cars at  the same time.

Cordon, a program developed by Peak Gain Systems, can monitor the speed and license plates of traffic that's coming and going spanning across four lanes. And, according to Gizmodo, it can see this information for up to 32 cars at the same time.

As Colorado's News 9 NBC affiliate notes in its report, speeders who used to feel safe in the pack are no longer safe. The program categorizes cars by color: green is legal, yellow means over the limit and red means you're going fast enough for a ticket.

Reports are that this technology will not begin rolling out in the U.S. until 2012.
