Under a five year contract, Redflex will deliver fixed speed enforcement systems at five locations and one mobile speed unit, in a deal estimated to be worth more than US$2 million based on previous contracts in the US.
This program is the first speed program in the State of Iowa and one of the first programs across the USA to implement mid-block fixed speed enforcement.
Chief Mike Bladel of the Davenport Police Department said 'As the City of Davenport continues to find ways of improving the safety on our streets, I am pleased to announce our partnership with Redflex. Redflex is a company who provides some of the most advanced technology in the automated traffic enforcement field. As a city that is constantly striving to provide quality traffic safety education and enforcement services, the ability to expand our programs through a Public - Private initiative stretches our local tax dollars and increases our police officers' presence on the street. We look forward to working with Redflex Traffic Systems and to improving traffic safety for our citizens."
