Extra eyes for school crossing patrols
Bath and North East Somerset Council has invested in pole-mounted technology to help tackle the problem of drive-throughs and aggressive driving.
Cameras mounted on lollipops enable SCPs to capture rogue drivers on film and provide the image to the police. Footage of drivers ignoring SCP instruction can be used as evidence for possible prosecution
Bath and North East Somerset Council’s traffic and safety team has purchased three of the Routesafe monitors. Two will be used on a permanent basis at sites within Bath city centre and the third will be dispatched to problem sites as and when required on a rotational basis.
