Comments Off on Council turns to roadside CCTV in a bid to protect highways workers against road rage

A local council has decided to deploy mobile, roadside CCTV systems as a means to protect its highways workers against abusive motorists, a recent news report in the local media could reveal.

Somerset County Council decided to take action after fourteen workers have seriously injured on the counties roads in the last twelve months while operating traffic management systems. Incidents of motorists ignoring signs, as well as physically or verbally abusing workers have also been recorded.

Stop and go boards, traditionally held in place by road workers, will be replaced by self-standing signage, all of which will be fitted with cameras and warnings.

The equipment is designed to reduce accidents, and abuse of road workers, by removing the need for operatives to stand close to moving traffic.
