Our mission here at Cyclops is to help drivers reduce their speed to make our roads safer for everyone. Safety cameras are placed on stretches of road that can be considered as an accident hotspot. It’s an area where there has been an accident before, sometimes repeatedly.
We are passionate about making roads safer for our drivers; therefore, we make sure our data is up-to-date, accurate and reliable. Our data is independently tested and benchmarked on a regular basis.
But how else do we make sure we are producing high quality data?
We cover over 140,000 safety camera sites in 63 different countries. We not only deploy our team of field surveyors to locations to verify our cameras, we also have a team of in-house researchers, who modify, add and remove camera sites every day. In 2021 so far, we have had a total of 20,287 changes, 5,505 of these being new added camera sites, 2,621 have been removed and 12,161 have been modified.
Removing camera sites is a vital part in providing the most accurate data available. Here at Cyclops, we want to ensure that all camera sites in our database are valid. Quantity should not be the primary benchmark when assessing data quality.
It’s our aim to know about every safety and average speed camera across the globe. Spotted a camera? Report it here.
