The Act allows law enforcement agencies to apply for certificates to use speed detection devices so long as the applicant provides continuous law enforcement services or allows only full-time officers to operate such devices. The Act defines what is commonly know as a "speed trap." It provides a rebuttable presumption that a law enforcement agency is utilizing its speed detection devices for revenue purposes when the fines levied based upon the use of such devices are equal to or more than forty percent of the agency's budget. However, in calculating the total speeding revenue for the agency, fines levied for violations exceeding seventeen miles per hour over the speed limit are excluded.
