In practice, the resolution of cameras has developed over the decades in such a way that if the cameras’ image stream is recorded, the information stored in the recording can be linked to a specific person under certain conditions.

Supervision in this case is considered technical supervision by the police.

So the police start announcing the technical controls they carry out with the traffic sign I16.

However, the automatic traffic control traffic sign I15 will also remain in use.

If control is carried out in cooperation with FINTRAFFIC, which performs road traffic control and management functions, the names of both control bodies are indicated with an additional sign below the traffic sign.
