Cameras coming to catch out drivers in Richmond
5:00am Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
Traffic offenders in Richmond will be caught on a hi-tech camera system under a new council contract.
Videalert will supply a new digital CCTV system for parking enforcement, bus lane and other moving traffic offences.
The first phase will see the deployment of an attended enforcement system to upgrade a legacy parking and bus lane system that is no longer supported.
The Videalert system will allow the council to introduce unattended camera enforcement later this year for box junctions and banned turns infringements and simple and complex bus lanes, by improving the existing infrastructure and eliminating the need for separate systems.
Richmond Council was recently given responsibility of enforcing traffic penalties.
Jim Marshall, head of parking services in Richmond, said: “We liked the simplicity and flexibility of the Videalert system to quickly and easily integrate into our existing CCTV infrastructure and accommodate an expanding network of cameras.
“It has already enabled us to reach 100 per cent workstation deployment and is significantly reducing the time taken to capture offences and review evidence packs.
“The system can also, where required, convert to unattended operations to increase the hours of enforcement without the associated additional staffing costs.”
