I've heard of this thing called VASCAR: Visual Average speed Computer And Recorder, years ago.

With all the cameras on the highway and what I believe to be inductive pick ups buried in the road; I'll see 2 in each lane. Then a single further down the road.

What I thought was a joke at the time, appears to me, to be real.

Can you shed any light on this? Does VASCAR actually exist? Are these rectangular things that are being buried in the road part of the system

Thank you for your reply.

The inductive pick ups I see are at traffic lights and on the highway. Usually not to far from a camera. What purpose do they serve on the highway?

Makes sense. Thank you again.
