VCA certifies automatic enforcement systems for Wales
VCA certification for traffic enforcement technology eases the approval burden on the Government of Wales to install traffic cameras.
The Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) has provided Videalert automatic traffic enforcement systems with DfT manufacturers certification for use by the Government of Wales, enabling the region to use equipment that has been accredited under the Traffic Management Act of 2004 without having to submit proposed installation details to the VCA for individual approval.
Commenting on the certification, which provides Wales with the ability to move toward automatic moving traffic offence enforcement through a speedier process, Videalert’s David Richmond said, “The certification provides councils in Wales with access to the latest digital enforcement system, which is already in widespread use across London and the UK, where it is helping to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow.”
Used for enforcing bus lanes, banned turns, box junctions, restricted zones, weight restrictions and one way traffic flow amongst other traffic offences, the platform is also capable of running traffic management, school safety and Police ANPR applications simultaneously with a high capture rate and low operating costs.
It is particularly useful for unattended enforcement in high traffic volume environments through the combination of ANPR and video analytics. This provides an additional layer of intelligence to track moving objects and accurately capture only those vehicles actually committing an offence, something that cannot be achieved using traditional ANPR-only systems.
