A Revolutionary Tool for Safer Roads
Safer Roads Humber recently carried out a 4-day trial of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) mobile camera van, which resulted in 239 motorists being caught breaking the law.
The offences included 49 drivers using their phones while driving and 190 drivers not wearing their seatbelts. Fines and points on driving licences were issued to those caught using their phones, while drivers responsible for passengers aged 14 or under not wearing seatbelts were offered education courses as an alternative to prosecution.
Let’s have a closer look at how this mobile camera van operates and why it is beneficial for keeping roads safe.
How AI Mobile Camera Vans Work
Safer Roads Humber’s AI mobile camera vans use automatic number plate recognition known as “ANPR” technology to identify vehicles that’ve been reported for law-breaking behavior.
Once identified, the vehicle will be flagged as a potential offender and its registration number crosschecked against the Police National Computer.
If a match is found, then police officers can take action by issuing fines, points on driving licenses, or offering education courses as an alternative to prosecution.
Benefits of AI Mobile Camera Vans in Keeping Roads Safe
The use of AI mobile camera vans has significant benefits in terms of keeping roads safe.
Firstly, it increases awareness among drivers of law-breaking behavior on the roads and encourages them to adhere to traffic rules.
This leads to improved road safety by discouraging drivers from engaging in risky behavior such as using their mobile phones while driving or not wearing seatbelts.
Finally, it reduces the risk of accidents due to improved enforcement of laws through the use of these vans.
AI Enhances Road Safety
ISafer Roads Humber’s success with its 4-day trial of an AI mobile camera van demonstrates just how effective this technology can be in catching law-breaking motorists and keeping roads safe. It increases awareness about road safety laws among drivers, improves road safety by discouraging risky behavior such as phone use or not wearing seatbelts, and reduces the risk of accidents due to improved enforcement efforts.
All these factors lead to safer roads for everyone involved!
