Leeds City Council will begin to install new CCTV cameras equipped with automatic number plate recognition across the city in the coming weeks. The cameras will be used to monitor and enforce the upcoming ‘Clean Air Charging Zone.’ They are not designed to detect the speed of vehicles but have the capability to identify non-compliant vehicles driving within the CAZ boundary when the zone is live.
Cllr James Lewis, Leeds City Council’s Executive Member for Resources and Sustainability, said: "Money raised from CAZ charges will only be used to cover the costs of operating the zone itself, to support owners of affected vehicles, and for other schemes to improve air quality."
