Willett Public Affairs Secures Major Municipal Procurement Contract for Client Sensys Gatso Group
18/01/2022 - Sensys Gatso Group, a global leader in traffic safety systems, through its subsidiary, Sensys Gatso USA has been selected as the automated red light enforcement provider for Pelham Manor, NY. This new managed service program is expected to generate approximately USD 875,000, corresponding to SEK 7.9 million over the five-year term.
Pelham Manor is a town in Westchester County, New York, with feeder roads carrying commuters into New York City each day. The high volume of daily traffic brings red light violators to this small community, putting its residents; drivers and pedestrians, at risk. Automated red light enforcement is a realistic choice for Pelham Manor, offering enforcement 24/7 while leaving the town's police officers free to handle other important matters.
The program will commence in the second half of 2022 and will consist of fixed T-Series red light systems. The five year contract also allows for several one-year extensions.
"We consider this a win for Pelham Manor. Every time a town or city chooses automated enforcement, we know, based on experience, that cars will slow down and not violate the red light traffic signal as much as they previously did. This should lead to reduced crashes and more safety for the area. Red Light running is a serious problem in regards to traffic safety and the behavior needs to change." says Joris Lampe, Chief Commercial Officer Sensys Gatso Group.
