SMC Tollways, the operator of Skyway and NAIAX has confirmed that aside from handheld speed cameras, automated fixed-location speed cameras have now been installed. These cameras, manufactured by Gatso use radar beams to measure the speed of a passing vehicle. If it is traveling above a preset trigger speed, one or two photographs are automatically taken. These cameras, capable of operating at night or inclement weather can catch speedsters even at low visibility or low light conditions. And because Skyway and NAIAX enforcers operate on a “quota” basis, expect them to be extra vigilant in catching motorists going above the speed limit.
As a refresher, the elevated portion of the Skyway has a 60 km/h minimum speed limit for all vehicles, while 100 km/h is the top speed designated for cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks. Meanwhile, for those using NAIAX, the maximum speed limit is just 60 km/h.
