Traffic Surveillance Cameras in El Salvador
The Ministry of Public Works is proposing installing a camera system funded by a percentage of the fines imposed.
Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Gerson Martinez, head of the Ministry of Public Works (MOP), "held talks with foreign investors on the subject and reported that these systems could be put in place without the State having to spend anything on them. The investor who installs the equipment could be assigned 'a percentage of earnings generated, and in this way it could finance itself without taxing the population’, said Martinez."
In order to put into operation speed cameras on the highways, RACSA has requested $5,500 a month for each of the 90 cameras to be installed.
The cameras will be installed at strategic points in the metropolitan area of San Salvador, to help monitor criminal acts.
The mayoral office of San Salvador has announced it will be investing $15 million in the installation of a video surveillance system to complement the 500 cameras already operating in the capital.
The government of Honduras has awarded, without conducting a tender process, a contract for the provision of a surveillance system which utilizes 2,000 cameras and a Control Center.
