I am not sure if this needs to go here or the Information Technology subforum but here it goes...

I am in the market for new traffic counters. Our old counters are MetroCount 5600's which were purchased 18 years ago and they have started to fail. I am in the market for new counters. The metrocount's are pneumatic tube counters. I am open to new technology if I can get the same level of accuracy or better. I am curious as to what is being used and I'd like to hear what works and what doesn't.

We will do counts for projects and see what the demands on a particular road are. We use the old tubes method and they work fine. We looked the lazar method but passed due to expense and some other concerns. Slightly OT. In the early part of my career, I'd get farmed out occasionally to the transportation division to help with the tubes. Not for the faint of heart.:eek::oops:
