That’s crazy! Now, probably no one will doubt that speed cameras in Prostějov are more than necessary. So far, the only stationary radar in Brněnská Street is operating in the city, and in a month of operation it has detected an unexpectedly huge number of offenses.
The fact that many drivers drive through Prostějov like crazy without respect for road regulations is evidenced by the results from the first month of sharp operation of the stationary speed radar in Brněnská Street. “Over one thousand offenses were committed by exceeding the maximum permitted speed. So far, only the measured place is in operation, but the assumption is that by the end of this year, the speed will be measured at more places in Prostějov. We will specify the locations in time, “Libor Šebestík, director of the Prostějov Municipal Police, told Večerník.
“Over one thousand speeding events on a section of the city, I didn’t expect that either. This shows that the drivers above them really need the famous whip. More radars in the city will soon be in operation, and I believe that even the most ardent opponents of speed measurement know that radars are an effective preventive weapon in terms of road safety, “said Alena Rašková, Deputy Mayor for Transport in Prostějov.
