Baja & Border News Translations: Speed Limit Information Campaign Proposed; Sudden Temperature Changes are Recorded
Speed Limit Information Campaign Proposed (Uniradio Informa, 10/21/12)
TIJUANA, BC - In respect to the reactivation of transit surveillance cameras in Tijuana, Alderman Enrique Parra explained that you have to see the positive side, since this will help prevent many situations of speeding and accidents including, in case of adoption of this operation we will need to do a campaign to inform the population about speed limits.
He indicated that this type of system is implemented and is very well accepted in the neighboring country. "It is done in United States. I've even asked people there if traffic lights are different, but they are exactly the same and beyond that there are also speed controls will fines, electronic fines that is. I think in this sense that we will be forced to accept and abide by the decisionl of the judge and if we get to an agreement for 150 million pesos ($11.7 million US) we will be lucky, more if the judge of decides for 220 million pesos ($17.1 million US) to ensure operability of the cameras, because then we will have to search for a way on how to adapt this".
In case of adoption of installation of the cameras he explained you need to regulate and visualize where the cameras are installed as well as properly informing the community about speed limits. "With a 70-day campaign we will all be very well informed", he said. http://www.uniradioinforma.com/noticias/tijuana/articulo153546.html
