Bollards were already keeping unwanted cars out of the Huygenskwartier – the car-free shopping area in the municipality of Leidschendam-Voorburg. Mopeds also weren’t welcome in this area, however they would just go between the bollards. This was the reason for a new approach.
Brickyard has placed license plate cameras at the access roads to the pedestrian area, they were switched on February 1st. After a testing period, which handed out warnings instead of fines, offenders will now receive actual fines.
Loading and unloading in the area is allowed until 11:00. Local residents and entrepreneurs are always allowed in the area and will not receive a fine.
