Leeds City Council has received a new mobile enforcement vehicle from Videalert
to target key areas where non-compliant drivers cause congestion or safety issues. It will also provide unattended enforcement to offences such as parking on city centre bus stops and school keep clears.
Videalert’s system automates the construction of video evidence packs which are reviewed by council operatives prior to sending confirmed offences to the back-office processing system for the issuance of penalty charge notices.
The new mobile enforcement vehicle is equipped with a complete suite of software applications enabling it to be used for a wide range of traffic management applications. At the end of each shift, recorded data is uploaded to its Digital Video Platform.
Tim Daniels, sales and marketing director at Videalert, said: “Leeds City Council is demonstrating the ease with which Videalert’s digital video platform can be cost-effectively expanded to allow a wide range of additional enforcement activities to be added. By adding the Videalert Mobile Enforcement Vehicle, they can effectively expand the capabilities of the system to target key city centre areas where opportunistic abuse of traffic regulations causes a safety risk, and fixed cameras are inappropriate.”
