Paragon develops camera detection system

A HI-TECH system is being developed by Paragon Vehicle Finance to help drivers detect speed cameras. Fleet NewsNet understands it involves a global satellite positioning system that would alert drivers to the location of speed cameras on their journey.

The system would ultimately be produced by a specialist manufacturer, although no decision has been made about going into full production.

Pawan Pandya, managing director of Paragon Car Finance, said the firm was backing development of the controversial system because he felt that speed cameras were being used as a means of generating revenue and not as a safety measure and added cameras were not marked clearly enough.

He said: 'We believe fleet drivers should be given an early warning. The driver can then make his own decision about the appropriate speed at which to drive.'
