HANOVER, Md., June 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brekford Corp. (OTCBB:BFDI) ("Brekford" or "Company"), a leading homeland technology service provider of fully integrated vehicle installation services, rugged mobile technology solutions, and automated traffic safety enforcement solutions, announced today the signing of a multi-year contract to provide the City of Salisbury, Maryland with School Zone Speed Cameras and related program support services.
Terms of the contract state two (2) years of service with three (3) additional years renewable upon mutual accord and include the installation of both portable and mobile cameras in designated school zones. For the first 30 days, Salisbury Police Department will use the speed cameras to issue warning notices to vehicles exceeding the speed limit by 12 miles per hour or more over the posted speed. After the initial 30-day period drivers captured speeding will then be issued a citation.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, in 2010 a review of 28 studies into the impact of speed enforcement technology found that injury and fatal crashes fell as much as 60 percent in areas with speed cameras. The cost to U.S. municipalities from speed-related crashes, as reported by the National Highway Safety Administration, is over $40 billion annually.
City of Salisbury Assistant Chief of Police Ivan Barkley stated, "Through the years our police department has been beleaguered by concerned parents, citizens and law-makers seeking additional emphasis in slowing down drivers on our neighborhood streets and school zones." Chief Barkley added: "This technology, we believe, will allow us to address aggressive driving concerns around our schools and keep our children safe – while allowing us to maximize our resources. Integrity and fairness are paramount to our efforts in providing a program that will be both successful and beneficial to the people of Salisbury."
Maurice Nelson, Managing Director of Brekford commented, "Today's announcement further demonstrates the expansion opportunity that exists in automated traffic safety as studies continue to reveal the full spectrum of benefits to both pedestrians and the municipalities that serve them."
CEO for the Company, C.B. Brechin, added: "We are pleased to add the City of Salisbury to our growing list of long-term partners. As market demand continues to escalate, Brekford remains both diligent and confident in our efforts to facilitate growth and increase shareholder value."
