The monitor also is capable of counting each vehicle that passes. A precise inventory of vehicle traffic on the roadway will assist in determining if additional traffic signals, signs or speed limits are adequate for the given location. The monitor can also keep an account of each vehicle's speed and stores it on a computer disk for later analysis of driving trends and traffic volume.
The monitor is an effective tool around the school zones when parents and others are attempting to get to their destination and do not realize how fast they are actually traveling. This also holds true for those residents traveling to work or other locations within the township. Long Hill Township residents who would like to see the monitor in their neighborhood can contact the traffic section (908)647-1800 ext. 225.
