About This Project

Wildlife deaths due to vehicular collisions are a global concern. Physical barriers to reduce speeding are not always possible in conservation areas, so a rapid and reliable speed enforcement system is essential when speed bumps and fences cannot be used. Some vehicles travel at twice the posted speed limit in the KAZA study area: endangering wildlife and community members. This project to monitor and reduce speeding is the first step in deploying a larger regional and intercountry wide system.
