One of the defining characteristics of our technology is the use of single beam LIDAR (laser). Unlike radar, that shoots a cone shaped doppler beam across multiple lanes, the laser pinpoints the exact vehicle that is captured speeding. Not only can we identify each vehicle across multiple lanes, but even the location on the vehicle contacted by the laser. More precise and more defensible.
Our photo speed enforcement program includes more than just enforcement. It includes elements of public information & education. By assisting public safety agencies with press releases, press conferences, development of brochures and safety information, we can assist your agency with sending a message of safety to the parents and students regarding the automated photo enforcement program.
Too often photo speed programs are called "Speed Traps" or "Money Grabs". The photo speed industry historically hasn't done a good job collecting data to show which programs work, which gives fuel to the fire for naysayers.
BLS is changing all that with a data driven, solution focused approach. The program begins by collecting 5 days (not one day like other companies) of speed data. This data will be used to establish a baseline for the number of speeding vehicles in the selected area, and will assist in determining if there in fact is a speeding problem.
After a robust Public Information & Education campaign (PI&E) and 30 day warning period, as described below, a second 5 day study is conducted. This data is compared to the baseline data to determine the reduction in speeding vehicles from PI&E efforts, without yet issuing citations.
A third 5 day study is conducted approximately one month into the enforcement campaign. This data indicates the continual reduction in speeding vehicles through the selected area.
Additional studies are completed each quarter through the first year of the program to continually track program success.
As the data is collected, reports are generated for dissemination to the community, the police agency, the council/commission, and media. Data doesn't lie. In almost every case, the data illustrates that the number of speeding vehicles have reduced in the selected area, thus improving safety. Furthermore, it helps offset the "speed trap" and "money grab" theory, as this program focuses on safety, not money.

Our school zone speed enforcement programs include radar speed signs for placement prior to the school zone to warn drivers of their speed.
Your agency may choose instead to place them in parks or recreation areas. Your choice, they belong to you.
The DragonCam is the only photo speed laser that is used by an officer and designed to allow the officer to either conduct a standard traffic stop or capture the speeding violation with the attached camera. The IACP-certified laser enables the officer to use discretion to make decisions, unlike other photo speed systems.
