Traffic data can provide valuable insight into road user behaviour, traffic patterns, and the effectiveness of existing road safety measures. By gathering and analysing traffic data, we can identify where accidents are more likely to occur and take preventative steps, such as improving road design, implementing or adjusting posted speed limits, and introducing speed control devices, such as speed bumps or roundabouts. 

Collecting traffic data can also help measure the effectiveness of road safety initiatives over time, allowing authorities to make data-driven decisions about where to allocate resources and future road safety projects.

Choosing the right counter: Which of our products works best for your needs?

We have a large range of traffic counters and classifiers designed to improve every type of traffic survey. From temporary to continued surveys on busy or quieter roads, vehicles or active transport, we have a counter of classifier for it all. 

The RoadPod® VT Vehicle Tube Counters are ideal for short-term surveys on busier roads, or long-term data collection on roads with a lower traffic volume. The RoadPod® VT benefits users, where surveying traffic volumes and behaviours facilitates improved road safety strategies. These portable counters save time and money, without compromising the reliability that MetroCount has become known for.
