Challenge

The City of Zagreb, Republic of Croatia, has some 800,000 residents and a bustling city center. With heavy traffic of vehicles and pedestrians, the city sought a solution for better traffic management, increased safety and more effective enforcement of traffic laws. In particular, the city sought to deal with illegally parked vehicles on footpaths, recognizing that drivers who stop in unauthorized areas and on footpaths pose a safety hazard and prevent the orderly flow of traffic.

Solution

Nearly 90 cameras at critical traffic points and intersections were enabled with savVi’s Real-Time Event Detection capabilities. The seamless integration of savVi with the Axis network cameras and Genetec Security Center, coupled with the integration with the municipality ERP system and national car registry database, provides the City of Zagreb with a best-of-breed solution that enables them to capitalize on their surveillance system investment, while increasing road safety.

Result

The deployment of the surveillance system, including savVi, has resulted in a reduction of traffic violations by more than 50%. Previously, the city relied on on-site traffic monitors to catch offending vehicles. The automatic detections made by savVi eliminate the need for human monitoring, and allow for more effective detection of illegally parked cars. More parking tickets have been issued and the City of Zagreb has tripled its revenue from traffic violations as a result of savVi’s introduction.
