Traffic Safety Solutions Co. Inc., a department of St.Louis-based B & W Sensors, was granted an agreement by Cool Valley city for integrating cameras to track speeding drivers.
According to John Baine, co-founder of B & W Sensors, the company supplies the sensors free of cost and gets a portion of the revenue from the issued speeding tickets. A total of nine employees are working in B & W Sensors and John Baine and another co-founder Thomas Winkler are the major proprietors of it.
The Police Department of Cool Valley, guided by Chief Dale Grzeskowiak, will install the Multiple Vehicle Speed Tracking (MVST) devices, in speed-prone zones such as in school areas and near the South Florissant Road cross walks or construction places.
B & W Sensors has alliances with Country Club Hills and Charlack and St. Ann municipalities, where the speed tracking cameras gave rise to various disputes. The highway officials at Missouri are considering authorization against Charlack for breaking an agreement regarding the working of two of its cameras in the Interstate 170 succeeding the reports that stated that the police car which monitors the cameras were left empty sometimes.
Baine stated that the company decides to incorporate more workers for its new contracts outside Missouri.
