That hasn't been there for over a year. Came and then disappeared after a few months.The City of Cape Town introduced a similar system on the M5 between the Kromboom Road and the Ottery Road bridges a few years ago.
On that stretch of road, the system has generated just over 14,500 fines since August 2012.
I'm sure they really meant to say the cameras had made people drive a lot slower and many lives were saved.Sigh.
'city said will compel motorists', 'Proprietary encryption software', 'central processing office', 'All data is stored', 'automatic number plate recognition', ' the system will determine whether or not an offence has occurred'
>> 'An officer has to inspect every infringement before the Section 341 notice is printed'.
Inspect the little screen readout that says, "Infringement?". Computer says 'yes'. Inspection complete.
>> 'On that stretch of road, the system has generated just over 14,500 fines since August 2012.'
A bigger problem is drivers who confuse driving on the speed limit with "abnormally slow".Why didn't the previous one work... Please get a system to also penalise abnormally slow drivers causing bigger problems on the roads and blocking lanes when clearly lanes to the left for example are open...
This technology is being used for other purposes across the country, but we need to roll it out with monitoring of "speed over distance" a lot more extensively.An ASOD system uses specialised cameras which record every vehicle that passes. These are referred to as Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras.
Not just that, the fines should triple for being a d**s.A bit OT, but will Ministerial Motorcades on their way to and from Parliament (or perhaps back from taxpayer-funded Lunches) also be eligible for fines? And if so, how will they "pay back the money" be collected from the offenders?
The cameras are there but they do not work!The City of Cape Town introduced a similar system on the M5 between the Kromboom Road and the Ottery Road bridges a few years ago
