New vans cut biker accidents
Motorcycle accidents in Norfolk are falling following the introduction of new triple camera-equipped speed enforcement vans (Surveyor magazine, 02/04/09).
Norfolk is the first Beacon authority to have won DfT support for a trial of the Teletraffic Commander system, which records linked images of speeding vehicles approaching, passing and then – for automatic number plate-recognition – receding.
Full evaluation is due after the trial ends in March 2010, but ‘anecdotal evidence is that word is getting around’, according to the county council’s casualty reduction project engineer, Keith Allen.
