The UK’s enforcement technology industry is being urged to give feedback on aspects of legislation and approvals that it feels could be improved.
At a meeting of the ITS (UK) Enforcement Forum, David Davies, Executive Director of the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety suggested that there may be shortcomings in the Home Office Type Approval process. “While it ensures high standards and evidence that will stand up in court, we are increasingly concerned that the system is just not delivering,” he said. “Opportunities to exploit new technologies which do deliver significant safety benefits are being missed and even existing systems are at risk. We are not the experts on this – we need information from people who are directly involved, about what’s going on, problems arising or solutions – so please let us know.”
