In connection with it in November on the main roads of state value Vilnius – Kaunas – Klaipeda and Vilnius - Utena the stationary devices on tracking speed of cars were arranged.

They not only take photos of guilty drivers, but also register vehicles, exceeding speed limit, and present the data about it.
