Nestor, a provider of traffic safety systems and services, has announced that it has commenced the warning period for a pilot automated speed enforcement program in Blackstone, Massachusetts.
Blackstone’s pilot program, which commenced last week, involves a 30-day warning period during which violators will receive written warnings in the mail. After the 30-day warning period, alleged violators will receive actual citations in the mail. Before a citation is issued, an official from the Blackstone police department will review the speed data and photographs of the incident and compare the photograph of the driver to Registry of Motor Vehicle records. Once the identity of the driver and the nature of the violation are confirmed, Blackstone police will authorize the issuance of a citation to the alleged violator through the mail.
Clarence Davis, CEO of Nestor, said: We are proud to partner with the Town of Blackstone in this important safety program. Blackstone has demonstrated an admirable commitment to public safety and has taken the initiative to bring the very best technology to bear on the serious speeding problem facing the Town.
