A new 20-camera detection system has been delivered aiming to improve child safety outside schools in the English town of Bedford.

Cohort company SEA’s ROADflow tcameras capture details of vehicles that stop in a specific area and for longer than defined location permits. These cameras are fully automated, re-deployable and can use existing road lighting columns, which allows enforcement to take place where previously it could be impractical. The technology also allows two lanes to be monitored with a single camera. Encrypted communications use the mobile network to transmit data to the back office for enforcement processing.

The technology is already employed by 51 local authorities across England to monitor road traffic offences ranging from yellow box infringements to unauthorised manoeuvres.

In addition to Bedford, SEA’s ROADflow technology is being utilised in Newcastle to detect offences where vehicles encroach into bus lanes and areas reserved for buses outside schools and the technology has been expanded in Cardiff Wales of Cardiff Council by installing a further ten road traffic camera systems to enforce yellow box-junctions and unlawful manoeuvres.
