Definitively starting from 4 November
From 4 November, the automatic devices for ascertaining the average speed, commonly called, will be definitively activated “legal guardian”, which the Municipality of Siena, through the Municipal Police, has installed in the stretches of the Cassia and the so-called lot zero of the Due Mari of municipal competence. An innovative tool for measuring the speed of vehicles that will allow you to protect safety and traffic.
“With this activation – explains the deputy mayor and councilor for mobility of the Municipality of Siena Andrea Corsi – closes a process that makes the Municipality of Siena a state-of-the-art administration in Italy. Removing the ‘tax’ of speed cameras was a promise of the electoral campaign and has been kept, despite overcoming a particularly complex bureaucratic process, in which the contribution of Anas, who contributed with collaboration and technical assistance, was decisive. With the ‘tutors’ we want to improve safety on the two arteries so important for city traffic and the approach to the center of Siena and, at the same time, prevent citizens and citizens from being harassed with administrative sanctions. Without prejudice to the fact that speed limits exist and must be respected for everyone’s safety. The ‘tutor’ method, however, makes it possible to withstand an average speed that improves traffic flows and the levels of accident prevention. With the activation, which will start from 4 November after a short period of experimentation, we invite all citizens to pay attention to respecting the average speed “.
