Following the “Regulations Governing Technical Specifications of Verification and Inspection for Point-to-Point Speed Measurement Devices” becomes effective on 1st January, 2021, the National Police Agency (NPA) has requested the police forces across the country to step up efforts on incorporating such devices for traffic enforcement.

The Point-to-Point Speed Measurement Devices was first introduced in 2016, and the installation of such devices had grown in popularity with police forces in the next 2 years. However, the majority of the devices were suspended following the controversy occurred on the Changhua Section of Provincial Highway 61 in April, 2018 in which the accuracy of the devices was questioned and confirmed faulty.

“Since the installation of such devices has been proven significantly effective for reducing traffic violations and accidents, the NPA will continue to encourage and supervise the police forces to install devices certified by the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection of MOEA,” the NPA stressed.

There are 37 Point-to-Point Speed Measurement Devices installed across the country as of December, 2020. “The information regarding the installation date, location of the devices and speed limit can be found on the websites as well as the road traffic will be placed,” according to NPA.
