While the initiative was introduced on a trial basis, its implementation across all Garda divisions will require additional funding from the Department of Justice.Garda Bryan Duddy told the Limerick Post that “embracing technology in the context of modern policing is both exciting and challenging.“It will change the future of the way we police and it will increase the visibility and effectiveness of Gardaí on the roads,” he said.Garda Duddy, who is a member of the Roads Policing Unit at Henry Street Garda Station, added that the new technology will greatly benefit traffic policing.The Limerick-based Garda is using a new state-of-the-art BMW RT1200 motorbike which is also equipped with technology that can relay scan number plates of cars.The bike is fitted with ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) technology which has the ability to scan the registration plates of up to 150 cars in three minutes.The system eliminates the need for officers to call in driver or car details to a station.Aside from the bike’s capabilities in relaying live feed information as well as the ANPR features, the bike can go from 0 to 60kmph in three seconds and and has a top speed of 240kmph.The bike and its technology can be seen this Friday from 2pm to 7pm at the Crescent Shopping Centre.
