by cameras mounted on buses in London. The Department of Transport is spending pounds 750,000 on 15 bus-mounted and 10 roadside cameras which will be installed in various parts of north London.
The cameras will photograph number plates and a computer will check the registration against a list of numbers used by buses before fixed-penalty fines ranging between pounds 20 and pounds 40 are sent out. The installation of the cameras follows a successful six-month pilot scheme during which warning letters were sent to offenders. Christian WolmarReuse content
