Goodyear to record and retain video at all traffic lights

By Michael McDaniel | Goodyear Independent

The Goodyear City Council on Monday discussed plans to implement a new real-time traffic camera recording project at intersections to aid in traffic study and policing.

According to Steve Scinto, Goodyear’s director of engineering, the proposed video camera retention project could help with traffic flow.

“With real-time monitoring, we can respond to incidents and monitor adjustments to signal timing … sensors are beneficial, but it’s not as advantageous as being able to record or view past recordings,” Scinto said. “We’d be able to evaluate changes to signal timing. We have statistical feedback from the equipment and sensors today, but this would provide us visual feedback.”

Staff also indicated any live feed and video recaps can be used to assist the police department investigations.

Goodyear City Council learned on April 8 during its budget review session that city staff installed a license plate photo reader system called Flock. The same day, the city manager and police proposed a plan to implement the plate reading snapshot cameras and other open-source internet-based video cameras into a real-time crime monitoring center.
