RBKC is funding the trial of two mobile acoustic cameras in Knightsbridge to detect noisy and antisocial drivers. Drivers recorded on camera have received fines and the Council say it may also apply for court orders to seize the vehicles of persistent offenders. This is front line technology for the UK and RBKC is the first Council to trial these cameras which we hope will be extended.
The Brompton police team mounted extra patrols and an anti-supercar sting “OPERATION DAYTONA” which operated in the Knightsbridge area over the whole summer. The Section 35 Anti-Social Behaviour Notice, Crime and Policing Act 2014, PSPO breaches and other traffic offences were also successfully enforced. Exhibition Road has become the latest location for the cars to show off and police officers always patrol when they are on duty, often in plain clothes.
