Automated Speed Enforcement Technology to start Oct. 1
School zone

SPRINGFIELD -- The Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with Blue Line Solutions, is launching its school zone photo enforcement program.

The program, Automated Speed Enforcement Technology (ASET), will launch Oct. 1  at Blandford Elementary School (McCall Road), Marlow Elementary School (Ga. Hwy 17), South Effingham Elementary School (Kolic Helmey Road) and South Effingham middle and high schools (Ga. Hwy 30-Noel C. Conaway Road). Soon to follow are Effingham County middle and high schools (Ga. Hwy 119), and Ebenezer elementary and middle schools on Ebenezer Road.

ASETs identify vehicles and capture their speed through the use of a laser beam. Blue Line Solutions touts their speed calculating ability as 100 percent accurate.

The sheriff's office is still awaiting a permit for an ASET device at Sand Hill Elementary School.
