The following steps outline the process that your community needs to follow in order to establish a SafeSpeed photo-enforcement program:

  1. SafeSpeed helps you identify potential camera sites, based on your community’s accident data.

  2. Your community signs a letter of intent with SafeSpeed.

  3. SafeSpeed personnel perform traffic studies, help you develop photo­ enforcement policies and may suggest intersection safety measures that go beyond its photo-enforcement program. For instance, your community may want to extend yellow light signal times, establish red light intervals, or make engineering changes to roads or intersections.

  4. Your community passes a local municipal ordinance to allow photo-enforcement and other traffic safety measures, if any.

  5. Your community signs a contract with SafeSpeed.

  6. SafeSpeed helps your community complete the photo-enforcement permit applications and program justifications required by your state’s transportation department.

  7. SafeSpeed helps you determine where new road signs should be placed. For example, Illinois Vehicle Code requires warning signs to be placed on approaches to photo-enforced, signalized intersections.

  8. SafeSpeed assists your community in the development and execution of a public awareness campaign, pre and post installation of the photo-enforcement system.

  9. SafeSpeed installs one or more photo-enforcement systems in your community. Equipment installation is provided at no cost.

  10. SafeSpeed works with your state’s transportation department to obtain approval for the photo-enforcement system to become operational.

  11. Your community’s SafeSpeed photo-enforcement program goes live.

  12. SafeSpeed maintains and services your photo-enforcement system.
