Greenwich officials are considering using laser surveillance, to catch speeders.

If village council agrees, Maryland-based Optotraffic would install a laser tower that would measure time, speed and distance between two laser detectors. When a car is found to be speeding, the device would take a picture of the license plates and a ticket would be sent to the car’s owner.

Possible target areas are Main Street and Townsend Street.
