Videalert, a supplier of traffic enforcement and management products, is announcing the first of a new generation of Clean Air Zone (CAZ) and Low Emission Zone (LEZ) enforcement products on stand P102 at Parkex 2017. The UK company says this will be of particular interest to the five Defra-nominated cities where CAZs will be created by 2020, providing the firm says enforcement to reduce pollution from toxic gases, including nitrogen dioxide which is estimated to cause the premature deaths of 40,000-50000 people each year.
Videalert will show its hosted platform for automating the management and enforcement CAZ and LEZ contraventions. With real-time identification of the vehicle type (including make, model, colour, gross weight, engine type and CO² emission band) the system can determine whether an offence has been committed and/or whether the correct tariff has been paid for entry into the restricted zone. The system also provides real-time intelligence to determine the extent of contraventions in any target location.
Tim Daniels, Videalert’s Sales and Marketing Director, says: “Pollution-related illnesses and deaths resulting from traffic on our roads is a massive issue for governments around the world. Whilst London, Birmingham, Derby, Leeds, Nottingham and Southampton now have the powers to begin tackling this issue, hundreds of other town and cities across the UK are in breach of their EU emission targets. Enforcing these zones further extends the capability of our hosted Digital Video Platform which supports multiple civil traffic enforcement, traffic management, crime prevention and community safety applications simultaneously, enabling councils to deliver more with less.”
