New cameras will detect drivers breaking the law


AI is not only going to be a massive part of all of our childrens lives – it is already a big part of ours!  At Silver Arrow Recruitment we know just how important it is to embrace this new technology and the ways in which it can help our drivers and clients.

There are currently trials of a new type of camera which will be able to tell whether drivers are using a mobile phone, or even if they aren’t wearing their seatbelt!  The images taken will be processed by AI and passed to police for consideration regarding any further action that may need to be taken.

Drivers can be fined up to £500 for driving without a seatbelt in addition to gaining penalty points.

Driving using a mobile can be double the fine (£1000) and six points.

The trials of this camera technology actually began with National Highways in 2021, and in Devon and Cornwall in 2022.  The research is now being expanded to 10 further police forces:

  • Durham
  • Greater Manchester
  • Humberside
  • Staffordshire
  • West Mercia
  • Northamptonshire
  • Wiltshire
  • Norfolk
  • Thames Valley
  • Sussex

Matt Staton, National Highways head of national road user safety delivery, said:

“We know that distracted driving and not wearing seatbelts were key factors in a high number of incidents that resulted in people being killed or seriously injured. “Working with our police partners, we want to reduce such dangerous driving and reduce the risks posed to both the drivers and other people.”

At Silver Arrow we know that the staff we provide, whatever the role is, need to represent ourselves and our clients at all times when working, so as part of our stringent assessment and onboarding process we ensure that only the highest quality candidates are put forward for your roles.
