Council defends CCTV cameras issuing fines automatically

Comments Off on Council defends CCTV cameras issuing fines automatically

A London local council has defended its decision to install unattended CCTV cameras after they were criticized by motoring groups, a news report in the local media has revealed.

Redbridge Council, who’s currently running a trial of an innovative CCTV system designed to run unattended and also automatically issue fines when required, claimed that the system was not selected to generate revenue, but rather in order to improve safety. A spokesman said: “These are being tested to help improve safety in areas where drivers are ignoring road traffic restrictions placing other road users and pedestrians at risk.”

This comes after the system was under heavy fire by motoring groups such as the AA and RAC, who argued that the it was only meant to be used to make money rather than deter drivers from breaking the rules.

The system employs advanced ANPR technology, capable of instantly reading the number plates of any vehicle that breaks the rules.
