3D Speed Camera

This is without a doubt the future of road safety the 3D speed camera captures just about everything you could be doing illegally with your vehicle. Its officially called ASSET (Advanced Safety and Driver Support for Essential Road Transport). It is undergoing severe tests at the moment in Finland to ensure its fully functional. It has a range of 50 meters and can detect if a driver has no insurance, tax or if they are wearing a seat belt. The system will be connected to the police force via satellite informing them about the offenses committed by the driver. The cameras are expected to be deployed across Europe starting 2013 costing at about 50,000 euro per unit.
