KZN gets high-tech speed cameras

Bheki Mbanjwa and Matt Saville

Durban - Sneaky speedsters who brake for speed cameras will now be caught anyway - the provincial department of transport is installing new cameras able to log a motorist's average speed between cameras using the new Average Speed Determination (ASD) system.

Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) head, John Schnell emphasised that the new system was only "a trial that will run for several months&quot.

He said the new system would be "a departure from the current fixed or officer-operated cameras which can only record a speed violation at one point".

It is likely to be rolled out along the N3 and the N2.

Snell said that although the effectiveness of the new system was still to be proven, it was expected that it would calm down traffic between two points of the cameras as opposed to only one point.

For this trial run, the licence plate recognition cameras will be placed at two spots on the N3. Snell said "this is a multiple equipment" that would be able to cover all the lanes on the N3.

Matrics rush to the coast

Schnell said it was possible that the new system, once fully developed, could be used by other law enforcement agencies. The system can also help track down stolen vehicles.

Meanwhile, emergency personnel are braced for a torrid weekend with a rush to the coast by learners who have just finished school for the year.

Of particular concern is drunken driving and the RTI's Colin Govender has warned potential offenders that the RTI would be keeping a close eye on them.

"We have to target them. We're bringing this forward from previous experiences.

"Sometimes when the adrenalin is pumping, people act irresponsibly. They know what to expect from us."

Govender said that with KwaZulu-Natal schools closing on Thursday, he expected an increase in road users and, particularly, the volume of pedestrians.

"Parties are on the go and the odd scholar will take the chance of drinking and driving," he said.

Traffic volumes increase

Paramedics are also on high alert. Neil Noble of ER24 said that two extra ambulances and two extra paramedic cars would be deployed in the Durban area.

"School is out and it is month end. People are going to be partying," he said, adding that paramedics would be expecting an increase in stabbings and assaults outside clubs as well as drunk driving incidents.

He said a watchful eye would be kept on the northern areas such as Ballito and Umhlanga, popular destinations for matriculants.

Traffic coming into the province is set to increase today as scores of holidaymakers make their way into the province.

By yesterday afternoon, there were no major increases recorded. In the morning, there were about 200 to 250 cars coming into the province.

By lunchtime, this figure had increased to 700 vehicles per hour.

The full provincial traffic law enforcement plan for the festive season will be unveiled by MEC Bheki Cele in Cato Ridge on Monday.

License plate reader (LPR) technology. 

We are proud to support our law enforcement agency partners,  helping law enforcement across SA and abroad," I-Cube LPR systems can read plates from all provinces and most foreign countries. The system works in real time to identify vehicles of interest allowing officers to prepare for safe and immediate interdiction. Both LPR systems capture key vehicle-related data, which can be analyzed for criminal intelligence, providing for both a white list and a black list management.

The system consists of advanced cameras and proprietary software that captures photographic images of license plates, translates the visual characters into numbers and letters, and then compares each plate to pre-loaded Hot Lists in order to identify vehicles of interest right on the spot. The technology also captures date and time stamps, as well as GPS coordinates, which can aid criminal intelligence efforts by placing a suspect at a scene, identifying possible witnesses and more.

Already deployed in over 70 local and 1000 of international sites the I-Cube systems are quickly gaining attention with the law enforcement community as they are credited with assisting in the resolution of thousands of vehicle-related crimes over the past 25 years. With seventy percent of criminal activity tied to a vehicle, quickly capturing and interpreting license plate data is critical to the law enforcement mission,


I-Cube Solutions would like to propose the following advanced license plate recognition solution to maximize your ROAD BLOCK .

Key areas are the linkage between the vehicle license plate, car colour, shape, type and the LIVE database of known suspect cars.

I-Cube Solutions has a number of LPR sites around SA, any of which you can use for Road Safety Week. 23-29 April 2007. A number of MOBILE LPR solutions available, if you would like to use these? 

Possibly you would like to use any of these sites with a ROAD BLOCK just after the cameras, where all drivers are captured on camera, those not wearing seat belts are then identified and the license plate noted.

These specific license plates are then either specifically pulled over by SAPS / METRO or possibly you would like to SMS the drivers who pass any of the sites to wear their seatbelts?

 One could E-Mail the drivers if we had the e-mail address or even print an image for them, along with any message you might wish to put out?

 Below is a typical proposal, if you would like to send these to any metro or SAPS who you wish us to work with?  


Please review the Presentation (PPT) or (PDF) and I look forward to discussing a suitable way forward in order to begin the operation.
