Hackney Surveillance..
« on: 21 February, 2011, 05:26:47 PM »
Out in Hackney today and came across two $camera vans.
1) Lawrence Buildings N16/Brooke Rd N16/Leswin Rd N16
Van parks in Lawrence Buildings with camera pointing southbound and films vehicles crossing Brooke Rd slightly left to enter Leswin Rd. As Brooke Rd is one way only (Westbound) the move across it to the left before immediately turning right into Leswin is illegal (It's virtually straight on but it's like a staggered crossroads) see "Hackney3" photo below
2) Boleyn Road N16 runs north/south parallel to, but west of, Kingsland High St N16 until the southern tip of Boleyn Rd (maybe 40 yrds) curves east to join the High St. Recently (within the last week according to a street cleaner I spoke to) this southern dog leg of Boleyn Rd into Kingsland High St has been made one way, west bound only, so you can no longer join the High St from Boleyn Rd. The curious thing here is that Boleyn Rd is the divider between Hackney and Islington, where the east side of the street is in Hackney and the west side is Islington. The van I saw today was parked in an Islington pay and display bay and was filming vehicles passing thro' the recently posted No Entry signs on the Hackney side. As I could discern no identifying markings on the van, I'm not sure for which borough it was enforcing! (see hackney1 photo)

One way to find out which council they are from:
Chuck a molotov cocktail underneath it and see which direction the occupants run. Vermin always flee to their nests!! :-ev-: :-ev-:

My Mrs has seen a Hackney van, she says it didn't have any of the red stripes on.  So, there is either more that two for Hackney or the ones here are from somewhere else  :idea:

Well I doubt they are Islington as we know what their cars look like so I think LBH. I will keep a look out too.

I thought I saw a blue plaque up on one of the buildings there!  :pmsl:

That $camera van was back at Boleyn Rd/Kingsland Road again this lunchtime (about 13.30) when I passed on the bus.  >:( :bashy: :bashy:

Could someone with the suitable technical skills/privileges make Hackney into one of the child boards please?

Sad but true BH, I quite like buses actually. :schucks: Must be old age - five years ago, I'd have got on the bike!
Heresy I know, but this morning I had to work in town and by the time I've got the bike uncovered, unlocked and I've waterproofed myself plus found a place to park and reverse the process at the other end, I opted for tube on way in and bus on way back. On the plus side this enabled me to have a "foot patrol" of west end honeypots on way home. Top deck is good platform for watching out for $cars too.  :-ev-:

Small world.
When Ealing palmed off their fleet of of these much detested vans, at least two of 'em were sold to Hackney.

Is it not illegal to be filming from vans that do not clearly display the warning signs?

Whilst out this AM, I came across the Hackney CCTV van as Boyo has already mentioned in Boleyn Road. This is a boundary Road and one half is Hackney, the other is Islington.

When I inspected the van, no Parking dispensation sign was displayed (But a Hackney permit was) and when I spoke to an Islington NSL CEO she said that both Councils have a an "Agreement" with one another re parking. W:T:F:

Nah they can't just agree to carve it up how they see fit. :bashy:
Otherwise WCC could have an agreement with say Enfield.
Its not allowed every ticket issued would be unenforceable.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Beer in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up,  totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a  ride!!"

Well this AM Islington sent me this. They are trying to tell me that under RTA (First mistake as it`s now TMA) , a Council CCTV van can park anywhere :pmsl: :pmsl: :pmsl: Sadly Pat, these councils DO think that they can do whatever they want!!!!

Seems I will be having some fun with these 2 councils :-ev-: :-ev-: :-ev-: :-ev-:
