Czech postal service aiming to win contracts to run radar speed systems

The Czech Republic’s postal service, Česká pošta, is looking to expand into other areas, including running a radar system to measure the speed of vehicles on the country’s roads, Mladá fronta Dnes reported. Česká pošta has entered tender processes to operate radar speed systems in several municipalities, the newspaper said, adding that the company hopes to profile itself as a provider of IT and communications technology. The Czech postal service has in recent years seen a fall in the volume of mail it delivers and this year will lose its monopoly on mail weighing less than 50 grammes.
