Attention drivers: Cameras with AI support will be installed on motorways in Great Britain in the coming weeks. The aim is to determine who throws garbage out of the window of their vehicle without permission. According to The Metro, fines of up to £100 are threatened.
Until now, the police had to view hours of video footage from surveillance cameras to uncover administrative offences. The new AI cameras relieve the police officers, as the system directly recognizes rubbish being thrown out of the window and automatically creates a fine based on the license plate number.
UK motorway pollution appears to be a growing problem. This is why AI cameras are being installed across the south east of England, although the exact locations are not yet known.
John Read, Founder of the Campaign
Clean Up Britain, finds clear words for the state in which he sees his country at the moment. Read says:
The British public needs to see what a disgusting, filthy, rancid country they live in. It’s sad to say, but it’s true.
The founder of
Clean Up Britain also believes that his compatriots have lost pride and respect for their homeland. In his opinion, the country is currently like an open garbage dump. In his view, respect and pride must be won back.
John Read adds:
[Das Land] really looks like a dump. We can be so much better than that, but we have to start understanding that it’s a big problem.
