Thing is they don't need physical media when it suits. They're happy to receive dashcam footage when requested

While I applaud the principle, I'm not sure that a vendor-owned platform is an appropriate place for allegations of a crime.

I've had mixed responses about what media to use, depending on the Garda involved. I sent one a link to a copy of the video on Google Drive, and she said downloaded it from there. I sent one a very short low-res copy by email, and he definitely got the email and replied. I've given some copies on CD or DVD. I've given some on USB, and one told me recently he'd have to download from USB to disk, 'but we're a bit short on disks around here'. I've had Gardai tell me they were using their own personal laptops to view footage or phones as they didn't have a work device.

DCC pilot project will see cameras installed to detect drivers parked or driving in bus and cycle lanes
Quote:
to be introduced in the first half of 2020 will see selected routes installed with cameras which automatically capture a vehicle’s registration in order to issue a fine. If successful, it could be used as a model for Government to roll it out nationwide.

And they will (when it suits them) say that dash cam is not evidence and look for a written statement to confirm what is on same cam footage. Modern policing 101!

Ssssh dont tell any motorists, but an easy way to avoid this money making racket is to avoid driving in the bus lane. Simple.

Same as speeding, but it's just shooting fish in a barrel, Joe.

Happy even to request it........ attitude of Gardaí to parking in cycle lanes is disgraceful.

DCC already pay DSPS millions to enforce the road traffic and parking acts then they do diddly squat other than light meter enforcement.

This will be another massive expenditure for low results. Like the red light cameras they switched off.


Dublin City Council are f#ckin knobheads on cushy pensions.

The contact for DSPS expired recently. The previous operator retained the contract but apparently the terms have changed significantly. Previously, they were obliged to spend most of their effort on paid-parting enforcement and most of that in the city centre. The new contract obliges them to enforce a broader range of parking offences across the entire DCC area. It will be interesting to see how it works out in reality.

If it's the school kids being dropped off then surely the school can identify the parents responsible and write to them with a threat of detention for the kids or some such. That will then result in the parents getting all worked up about it and self identifying as the ones parking illegally as they then phone up a radio show in disgust where you then have someone tell them what idiots they are and some road safety bod give them a stern talking to.

Meanwhile the kids get scared about getting detentions or docked marks or something and make sure the parents drop them off legally.

School would never even need to go through with the threat. Would be entertaining to see it happen in the media if nothing else.

Entertaining indeed, but it would not be on to punish kids for the sins of their parents.
