ANPR systems to help improve pedestrian safety in Bath

Comments Off on ANPR systems to help improve pedestrian safety in Bath

ANPR cameras will monitor a temporary bus gate at a busy junction in Bath and help enforce the issuing of fines to make sure the zone is safe for pedestrians and cyclists, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The bus lane restriction, which came into force on 6th July, allows only buses to travel along the one-way Milsom Street up to the junction with Quiet Street between 10am and 6pm, providing more space for people to keep their distance and enjoy the traffic-free zone.

Until now, Bath & North East Somerset Council wardens have been on site to monitor the temporary restriction and barrier to prevent access, but automatic number plate recognition cameras (ANPR) have now been installed in line with the other bus gates in the city and will be switched on at the beginning of October when the barriers are removed.

Anyone in contravention of the restriction will receive an automatic Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) of £60 (reduced to £30 if paid in the first 14 days) which will also contain details of how they can appeal if they believe the PCN has been incorrectly issued.

All vehicles are also prohibited from parking, loading and waiting except for in the authorised and designated loading bays between the hours of 6pm and 10am.

The temporary measure is part of the council’s response to the government directive to create more space for pedestrians and cyclists in busy locations and encourage active travel.
