Re: Monitoring

Re using cameras to gain evidence for issuing fines - can this really be cost-effective?

When one considers not just the cost of the cameras and the supporting infrastructure (the storage, the systems for storing & retrieval and the maintenance overhead for those systems) but also the man-hours of local government personnel using the system to view and then act upon what they've seen I find it very difficult to see how this could possibly result in a net income/saving.

If this scheme is not generating a net income/saving then one has to question the motives behind it.
