Smart motorways may be smarter than you think.

Bristling with technology, SMART motorways use the latest available tech to keep drivers safe.

Speed cameras that can track the average speed of a vehicle, ANPR cameras that log the vehicle’s number plate and report untaxed, uninsured and those not having a valid MOT test.

New cameras are being trailed that detect drivers using mobile phones whilst at the wheel.

Speed, traffic volume and speed are automatically monitored by computer systems that alter the speed of traffic and control lane access.

You may have noticed the new white radars that have been installed on these motorways, these monitors for non-moving vehicles. Should you break down the monitoring system will automatically pick up your non-moving vehicle and take appropriate action.
