School Streets Enforcement

Why School Streets?

School Streets help to improve poor air quality around schools where children gather at the start and end of the school day.  They also make it safer to walk, cycle and scoot to school, creating a more pleasant environment and giving children a chance to exercise. 

Our Digital Enforcement Solutions are deployed in over 20 London Boroughs, providing the effective enforcement of school streets, where the roads around schools are temporarily closed to traffic at drop-off and pick-up times.

Effective digital enforcement

Our Digital Enforcement solutions ensure your School Streets are kept clear of vehicular traffic at school pick up and drop off times, helping to keep children and parents safe and free of traffic fumes, whilst promoting active travel choices. 

Our LaneWatch automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras are at the heart of the School Streets enforcement solution.  Designated "School Streets" are typically just one road with a camera at the start and end of the zone, but multiple roads can be covered by the installation of additional cameras.  Each camera is configured to monitor vehicles entering the area during specific periods, as part of a seven-day configurable schedule of enforcement. 

The system accurately identifies potential contraventions in real-time, with video evidence recorded to give a contextual overview, and still images capturing each vehicle's registration plate.  The overview video allows the system operators to establish if there are any extenuating circumstances for the contravention.

Advanced camera technology

Our LaneWatch Mk3HD camera is a sophisticated traffic monitoring device, designed for automatic on-street operation in all weathers, 24/7.  Its evidence processor manages the ANPR, video analytics, evidence processing, vehicle identification, authorised user lists and operating schedules.  Fault monitoring software automatically detect faults and remotely alerts the our Service Operations Centre for remote diagnostics and repair when necessary.

  • Automatic contravention detection
  • Twin High Definition (HD) camera modules, for contextual overview images and close-up identification images
  • Exemption lists
