Local authorities will soon be able to deploy drone cameras to check that trucks have been banned, for example near a school. The plenary session of the House of Representatives gave the green light for tonight.
In recent years, many local authorities have imposed entry bans or limited window times for heavy traffic near schools or village centers. But this is difficult to verify, because the police are only allowed to physically expose the violations in the act.
A bill introduced by Voort Member of Parliament Joris Vandenbroek that was approved in the House of Representatives this evening, would change that. After all, it will soon be possible to check automatically using unmanned cameras.
According to Vandenbroucke, this will improve safety. “If we want safe school environments, the chances of heavy freight traffic ignoring the ban in school environments must be increased. What good are rules if they are not monitored? With these simple adjustments, we ensure that there is no heavy freight traffic near children.” crowds around our schools,” he says.
The proposal was supported by the majority parties. N-VA, Vlaams Belang, and PVDA abstained from voting.
