With the festive season over and 2014 well under way, many road managers turn their attention to monitoring school zones. And with children making their way back to school, it’s important that road safety analysts understand motorists’ speed behaviour around schools. MetroCount provides you with many tools to do just that. Our Technical Library has a wealth of information to help you get the most out of your MTE software.
All traffic reports you produce with MetroCount Traffic Executive (MTE) software can be “filtered” to isolate different sets of vehicles, allowing you to focus only on the vehicles you want to see.
With many roads around schools now having speed restrictions that apply at varying times throughout the day, an understanding of Time Filtering is crucial to successful school zone analysis aimed at protecting our most vulnerable road users.
One of MTE’s most powerful filtering tools is the Time Mask, which is explained in detail in the Technical Library. This intuitive tool lets you easily select time periods to globally include or exclude from your reports.
