Venice plans canal-based speed traps

Right: Traps will be used to fine the owners of boats that speed on Venice's canals

Officials in Venice, Italy, are planning to introduce speed traps on the city’s world famous canals to deter people from speeding in motor boats.

All boats using the city’s canals will be fitted with a microchip so they can be easily identified by tag readers installed along the banks.

The introduction of speed traps is likely to follow the introduction last November of Argos, a system used to curb congestion and monitor every boat on the Grand Canal.

“We want to swap all registration plates on motor boats in the city with ones with a microchip inside,” says deputy mayor Michele Vianello. “It is not possible to use Argos in the narrower canals, and this technology is more appropriate. Whatever offences occur can be checked in real time.”
