Tram cameras

01 Apr 2002

HALLE tram operator HAVAG began a six-month trial of on-board video cameras in January, aiming to prevent vandalism and assaults. Date and time- stamped images from four cameras are stored for 48 h before being automatically overwritten.

If any criminal activity is detected, the pictures are saved for submission to the public prosecutor. The cameras will be fitted to further vehicles if the tests succeed in reducing crime.
