DADDY OF ALL GATSOS
It can zap four lanes of traffic
By Emily Nash
A FOOLPROOF fatso Gatso which can clock speeders on four lanes at the same time may soon be on our roads.
The Multi-Camera System is dubbed "the daddy of all speed cameras" by its distributors.
It boasts three stills cameras plus a video capture system, and can take close-ups of drivers' faces with infrared.
The machine, which could police traffic lights and box junctions, holds up to 60,000 images on a hard drive which can be instantly downloaded.
It also has spikes to deter vandals and is virtually maintenance free, making it more economical.
Auto Express editor-in-chief David Johns said: "This will send shivers down the spine of every motorist. You can bet it's only time before it arrives here.
"Cash-greedy safety camera partnerships will find the hi-tech, low maintenance device something they can't ignore."
The MCS is made by Dutch firm Gatsometer which produces the Gatso, Britain's most common type of speed camera.
UK distributors Serco said: "If local partnerships want them, they could be here in 12-18 months."
The Home Office said: "This equipment is not type-approved and therefore cannot be used in the UK...at the moment."
