Redbridge deploys video to prosecute drivers

Warwick Ashford

Redbridge is the sixth London borough to adopt enhanced digital video recording (DVR) technology to capture and prosecute traffic offences.

The borough is using DVR technology from Civica to improve the law enforcement capabilities of its closed-circuit television (CCTV) network.

Redbridge started live enforcement of parking and traffic contraventions by CCTV just over a month ago, according to PublicTechnology.net.

CCTV contraventions focus on offences such as using bus lanes, parking on restricted areas, turning into streets despite restrictions being in place or stopping in box junctions.

Five other London boroughs have adopted DVR technology after re-assessing CCTV traffic equipment to check it complied with new laws.

The DVR technology means motorist will be able to view digital footage of alleged offences online. They will also be able to upload their own supporting material to dispute a penalty.

Benefits for local authorities will be more compact digital storage of images, more accurate evidence and greater automation.
