Cameras to clock cars' average speed

HABITUAL speedsters, watch out – new cameras that “know” your average speed are up and running.

Unlike with the spot speed cameras in use here since 1992, motorists will have a much harder time evading the new technology, which calculates a vehicle’s average speed over a stretch to determine if it is breaching the speed limit.

Police installed the first set of so-called “average speed cameras” as a trial at Changi Coastal Road last November, and they were switched on in January. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
