Police in Bulawayo have installed traffic cameras along Leopold Takawira Avenue and Samuel Parirenyatwa Street as a trial run before they install the technology around the city.
Bulawayo City Council spokesperson, Miss Bongiwe Ngwenya, yesterday told The Chronicle that the trial cameras will be removed after 5 days. She added council will assess the efficiency of the system before the installation of the cameras on major roads in Bulawayo. Said Ngwenya:
The City of Bulawayo has installed a demonstration traffic camera unit along Leopold Takawira Avenue and Samuel Parirenyatwa Street. The traffic camera was installed on Tuesday 23 October and will be removed after five days. The camera will be checking a number of aspects which include the speed at which vehicles are travelling at robots or traffic violations, conduct traffic count by recording vehicles passing through and record the areas surrounding the traffic installation.
