@Laserray Those 3 pics don't look like you can see the LP very well? Have you optimised the image further?

Well this month will be the 1st report sent to the city. I picked out 10-12 speeders one had 22 hits, basically twice a day. System had been up and down all month long. LPR works good some days, other days not so good.
We had a Dodge Changer hit 84mph in the dark with fog, road was wet.
I use the Freedom of Information Act to get a record of the people who were charge with speeding. The police chief claimed in our local paper they arrest 100 per month. The facts show this month it was two. So it's an up hill battle to get the police to do their job. And the news reporters are worthless., it was too hard for them to verify the facts :(
One interesting piece of data, when I send memo's to city hall the speeds drop. Every single time.
We have 4 cameras setup Loryta IPC-HFW5241E-Z12E IP 2MP Starlight Cameras and one IPC-HFW5231E-Z12E. 2 LPR 2 wide view. Now I need a side view camera to catch the vehicle side view.
offer Free coffee and donuts. would be cheaper, no? lol .
I know around here the small communities get together and they all stick signs on there front lawns that say something like "Respect the speed limit and drive as if your kids lived here".

LOL of course you are correct. And I just may do that :)
The neighbors play "Speeding or Not?". The kids gets to guess, and the adults get to take a shot. It's a pretty fun game, and shows how little one knows.

This has being a 2 year experiment. I was in total shock of the actual speeds I first recorded with the sports radar. Now it's all hard data stored away.
As far as cost, some people buy booze, and hot cars. The future legal costs are going to be huge. If you know an attorney who wants make some coin, send them to me.

I know people are trying to figure an angle, or even whats my angle. Rumors abound in my little city growing fast.
It's hard to believe somebody would do all that work just to improve something like a small neighborhood.. Oh well.

To the 90% who respect the speed limit, THANK YOU!

The reason I asked for the tech part of it. 1. I wanted to know what it looked like, and what made it tick. 2. I was thinking if this works well for you and has worked, maybe this could be turned into a portable mobile radar trailer a city could buy. They can deploy the device for a week, and see when they need to have officers out there running radar giving real tickets or b. start sending letters like red light tickets but only warnings.

On the tech post, would you mind sharing some of the pricing for some of the parts you bought?
Also, great idea for using the pelican boxes. There is a local vendor here selling a bunch for "cheap". it's cheaper than buying a new project box just never thought of it.

ok I put pricing up for you. The boxes were half the cost of pelican boxes. The connectors are water resistant and have worked well.

They already have those speed boxes. Yes, I was thinking the same but there is a lot more work to do. Solar power, battery back up, and remote internet.
Right now I just want to make good charts graphs and reports. The people who continue to be recklessly driving and trying to prove a point are going to prove my point in court.
The monthly reports are almost automatic, saving hours of research. One click and I can see a repeated speeder's pattern. You might try it on my website. Click on the guy with 39 speeding hits. You could catch him with very little effort.

The problem with my city's current speed boxes are:
They get damaged
They never leave them in one place to get any long term data.
They don't know who is doing the repeated high rate speeding.
They encourage speeding as people intentionally speed up and race the sign.
The data isn't organize well to do anything.

It's just lip service to the citizens who complain weekly about the out of control speeding in town.
The solution is obvious but you can't force the horse to drink the water.
There are just a small set of people that need to be pulled over and asked "why are going so fast? What do you hope to gain?"
