Every week, they make a public announcement of the areas where mobile speed vans will be roaming around to keep road users safe.

Anyone who violate the speed limit will be given a speeding ticket with a corresponding fine. If the fine reaches up to three points or more, vehicle owner’s insurance premium gets an increase.

For the strict implementation of the operation, officers use a Truvelo Pro laser infrared speed gun, an instrument specifically designed for traffic law enforcement. Police forces have been using the equipment for several years to keep track of speed limit violators.

With its effort to instill driving at a safer speed, the Mobile Camera Enforcement Unit said the operations helps to improve the quality of life for people living in the areas and ensure their road safety.
