The cameras will capture pictures of cars parked in prohibited areas before zooming out to capture an image of the road sign holding parking instructions or regulation information.

The Metro reports on November 3 in the article titled ‘CCTV to Target Parents’ ‘Negligent’ Parking on School Run’ that the scheme sees CCTV cameras installed with the aim of catching individuals who park in prohibited areas while on the school run. The Metro reports that the cameras will capture pictures of cars parked in prohibited areas before zooming out to capture an image of the road sign holding parking instructions or regulation information. The pictures will then be sent to the council.

It is thought that the systems will increase safety outside schools, helping to prevent car accidents caused by negligent parking.

As a leading provider of business security systems, AlertSystems closely follow CCTV-related news and are interested in developments in the industry. The company were interested in the use of CCTV cameras to prevent negligent parking outside schools and a spokesperson for the company offered their thoughts:

“The announcement of this scheme is likely to divide opinion, yet negligent parking can put the safety of pupils and residents at risk, so having systems in place can help to increase safety in the area. We look forward to following the development of this scheme and seeing if other councils decide to implement the initiative.

Using CCTV security systems to ensure adherence to the rules of the road have been used for many years and can be vital in helping to ensure safety in car parks and on roads. As a business, if you have high levels of traffic on your premises and are concerned about safety, a high quality CCTV security system can be used to monitor parking and help ensure that vehicles are not parking in prohibited areas to increase the safety of individuals in the area.

Other systems such as Vehicle Number Plate Recognition can be useful in monitoring vehicle movements and managing parking. Automatic barrier controls can be useful in ensuring that only authorised vehicles are on the premises and, if in the case of a crime, footage of number plates can be accurately captured and this information can be passed to police to use as part of their investigations.”
