Camera at bus lane ‘Rijksstraatweg’ in Ridderkerk, Netherlands

Since this month, the municipality of Ridderkerk (Netherlands) started using Brickyard Camera Enforcement at their bus lane ‘Rijksstraatweg’. Residents are experiencing nuisance by “cut-through traffic” that is using the bus lane for a shortcut. During this trial period, it will be examined whether camera enforcement will reduce cut-through traffic.

Residents have been experiencing nuisance by cut-through traffic at the bus lane ‘Rijksstraatweg’ for a long time. It is simply impossible for the police and on-street enforcers to be present 24/7 to enforce this illegal cut-through traffic. Therefore, the municipality has askes Brickyard to install a license plate camera to control the bus lane.

Warning instead of a fine

Just the police, fire brigade, ambulances, and busses are allowed to use the bus lanes on the Rijksstraatweg. The system was installed recently in February, and violators will first receive a warning instead of a fine. If they violate the law again, they will be fined.

The testing period will be one year long. After this period of time, an evaluation will be made to see whether camera enforcement – at this location – results in less cut-through traffic. This will decide whether they will keep the cameras and continue enforcement by camera. Experience shows that camera enforcement is a very successful way for achieving behavioural change.
