Videalert has launched an electric mobile enforcement bike (MEV-B) to help councils efficiently enforce a range of moving traffic, parking and clean air contraventions. 

Videalert says the MEV-B – based on a cargo bike by Niu Technologies – uses two 29Ah Lithium batteries to give a range of up to 70 miles in urban applications.

The removable batteries allow fully charged replacements to be quickly fitted to extend the number of shifts it can cover on a daily basis, the company adds. 

The bike is fitted with front and rear disc brakes and also has a regenerative braking system which returns energy from braking to the battery.

The automatic on-board systems require no manual operation and are powered by a separate battery with sufficient capacity to handle two shifts per day. The MEB-V is equipped with two dual camera units, one forward and one rear facing, each comprising both an automatic numberplate recognition and a colour camera which captures contextual video evidence.

According to Videalert, these ONVIF-compliant HD cameras deliver superior capture rates of up to 98% with just a single pass at normal road speeds.

Rubena Hafizi, client account manager at Videalert, says: “As a former manager of parking and transport services I can really see how this new MEV-B will enable councils to demonstrate their commitment to improving air quality by reducing vehicle emissions whilst undertaking essential compliance monitoring. It also further extends our market-leading portfolio of traffic enforcement and management solutions.”
