A SAFER ROADS Humber trial, using hi-tech detector vans equipped with Artificial Intelligence kit, may result in one of the units being used on a regular basis on East Yorkshire roads. As previously reported by Beverley FM, 225 drivers were caught not wearing a seatbelt and 54 using a mobile phone during the week-long trial. 

Ian Robertson, partnership manager at Safer Roads Humber, said data from the trial would be studied prior to a meeting with American consultants AECOM, which provided the van for the trial. He said: “Nothing is off the table. We may decide to buy our own van, or we might lease one or purchase a second-hand one. Alternatively, if we feel – based on the data – the trial was not successful we will not talk about it again.”

EAST RIDING College’s Beverley campus will bold an open day for prospective students on Thursday May 4 for information on full-time and part-time courses offering degree qualifications, HNCs and HNDs, teacher training, apprenticeships and more. The session, at Flemingate, will run from 4 – 7pm. More information here
