City Uses New Enforcement Technology to Reduce Fatal Crashes

After dealing with a speeding problem on their I-680 interstate and other expressways, the City of Youngstown needed a new solution after exhausting traditional routes to curb speeding in the area. Optotraffic worked with the City to enact a new handheld portable photo laser speed enforcement system called DragonCam™, by DragonEye Technology, LLC. After one year, the City saw a significant reduction in serious and fatal crashes along its freeway systems.

“Optotraffic has been with us every step of the way on the implementation of this program from training our personnel in how to use the whole system to personally coming to help out with our first hearings.”
