Cities such as Antwerp, Brussels, Namur and Ghent were pioneers in Belgium in introducing low-emission zones. The most polluting vehicle have been banned from city centres, to improve the quality of life. Intelligent surveillance cameras with automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) were installed by ENGIE Fabricom along the main traffic routes, to detect and register vehicles that do not comply with European emission standards.

Extra eyes on the road

The installation of these cameras represents a step towards an intelligent transport and parking policy, which allows authorities to decide which polluting cars should be banned from the centres of cities or local areas. The cameras are also important for improving road safety, as they can also measure speed and identify stolen or uninsured vehicles.
