Camera Enforcement creates ‘better living conditions’ in Dutch city

Camerahandhaving Voorburg
At the end of 2018, Brickyard installed Enforcement Cameras in the center of Voorburg – a Dutch city. The objective of these cameras was to keep cars and mopeds out of the pedestrian zone of Voorburg. A year later, the municipality stated that there was a successful behavioral change. The number of mopeds in the center dropped by 70%.

As mentioned above, the cameras had been installed at the end of 2019. They were activated a couple of months later in February 2019. The cameras replaced an out-of-date bollard system that didn’t work as desired, and required unnecessary expensive maintenance. Violators received a warning letter when they committed their first violation, from the second violation onward they received a fine. This makes sure that residents were informed before having to pay for the violations. According to a local newspaper Voorburgs Dagblad , a total of 4,500 fines were issued until October 21st of 2019. 2,500 of these fines were issued against moped drivers.

Alderman van Eekelen partook in an interview with ‘Voorburgs Dagblad’, he said that residents and entrepreneurs experience a severe decrease in problems caused by cars and mopeds in the pedestrian zone. “This is a positive change, less traffic in the pedestrian zone creates an even more attractive city for residents and visitors”.

However, the bollard did not function properly and became unpredictable, dangerous, and – most of all – very expensive for the municipality. The bollard broke regularly and caused damage to vehicles with and without an exemption. Brickyard solved this problem with smart Camera Enforcement.
