Using traffic cameras to cut Rotterdam’s congestion (The Netherlands)


English

Traffic cameras are an established feature of road infrastructure, and have been broadcasting live to the monitoring centres of transport authorities for a while. Normally that video is reserved for the eyes of operators.

In Rotterdam, however, a new website has been launched that allows members of the public to see the live footage from 24 cameras located in 19 different locations around the city. The new cameras are complementary to the existing traffic information network.
