|ANPR CRBN Revenue Protection Peterborough Environment Capital|
An innovative data solution to speed up vehicle movements and reduce traffic hold up footprints through the Peterborough City Council Bourges Boulevard extended road works is to be trialled by Peterborough City Council, starting on Wednesday using specially adapted speed linked revenue generating ANPR cameras (as above). A move that is self financing and may reduce council debt. [Admittedly only between the hours of one minute past midnight to 12 noon on April 1st Only. Hundreds fell for it and reportedly clogged up the new council website, or did they?]
These modified digital cameras were installed overnight tapping into the new gigabit network and optically wired to the councils new cloud based website. All Motor vehicles registered to, or a registered keeper and council tax paying resident within the Unitary Authority will have their council tax accounts automatically debited with a Carbon Reduction Bonds Notification (CRBN) digitally recognised and calculated at a rate of £2:50 a minute from the start of the CRBN zone starting from opposite the ASDA supermarket car park and ending at the ToysRUs roundabout. The speed of the system ensures payment notices are automatically processed and delivered within hours by the new fleet of nil carbon Leaf electric cars recently acquired by the council. There is however a technical flaw in the system, a full CRBN waiver can be applied to any account simply by logging onto the new website and entering code #214blooflirpa (lower caps and in reverse order ) before entering the CRBN zone.
Motorists will however be offered 'an offset cancellation allowance' (OFCA), assuming that the CRBN identified vehicle is travelling through the CRBN zone at not less than 15 miles an hour. The £2:50 a minute charge will therefore only be applied to traffic either at a standstill with engines still switched on or moving at a slow speed, which traffic controllers have identified as contributing most carbon pollutants in the environment capital city limits. Through engine generated sonics the system will not only clock the speed and engine activity, but also calculate the exhaust particulate output.
The system is developed by Unoavril Modalities, Polenta, (UMP), The initial trial will be solar powered and feature a cyclone windpower battery standby system, initially to be hand activated during the morning rush hour and powered down at Noon.
A spokesman commented: "Its all about motorist education, when the debits quickly clock up not only do we take in revenue to reduce the council debt, but motorists will learn a valuable lesson and quickly find an alternative route to totally "bypass the City and the CRBN cameras and save money. No one likes forking out, so by adding the CRBN to council tax bills, no one will actually notice, as after the two month council tax payment holiday we simply add the CRBN charge back on starting April1st, and clearly foolish not to take the money."
At noon today April 1st the toys were put back in the box, and UnoAvril teamed up with #214blooflirpa (best read right to left)
