The ACT Government is already using Gastometer camera's following a multimillion dollar deal last year.
Stephen Gateley, Managing Director of Aspect Traffic, comments, "Canberra is a strategic win for Aspect Traffic, in keeping with our goal for Gatsometer to become the number one supplier of speed and red light enforcement systems in Australia." He added, "We believe that Gatsometer's policy of offering a full range of fixed and mobile enforcement systems, coupled with Aspect Traffic's experience in installation and systems integration, gave us the edge in this contract. We were able to meet and exceed all the enforcement needs of the ACT Government."
A Dutch offical of the Company told SHN that several Australian governments were "Impressed" with the Companies new technology as it allowed a "Big increase" in revenue raising by various State Governments.
In Holland road users have received 2,3 million fines because they drove too fast on stretches of highway where there is point-to-point measurement.
The Dutch Police and the Ministry of Justice introduced permanent speed enforcement on several places recently. They claim that "On highways without the point-to-point monitoring, ten to 15 percent of the drivers don't keep to the maximum speed limit, whereas on highways with point-to-point measurement, this percentage is only 2,5 percent'', explains a spokesman of the bureau of traffic enforcement. "In the beginning many drivers will get fines, but as soon as people are used to it, these percentages will decrease.''
