Elevating Fleet Safety: The Essential Role of Pedal Monitoring Cameras

With Transport for London’s (TfL) recent mandate requiring all new buses to be equipped with pedal monitoring cameras, the focus on fleet safety has never been sharper. For a fleet operator, understanding the nuances of this mandate and the inherent benefits of pedal monitoring technology is not just about compliance, but about embracing a culture of safety.

TfL’s Safety Mandate:

The mandate by TfL highlights the critical nature of pedal application errors – a simple mistake of confusing the accelerator for the brake pedal could lead to dire consequences. This move by TfL sets a precedent in the transportation industry, emphasizing the need for comprehensive monitoring to prevent such errors. A pedal / footwell monitoring camera provides the perfect answer to this requirement, delivering clear visual evidence that captures the driver’s foot movements in real-time.

Cost-Effective Compliance and Safety:

Implementing pedal monitoring cameras is a strategic decision that aligns with TfL’s vision and bolsters your safety protocols without burdening your budget. Centrad’s camera systems are designed to be economically viable, offering clear footage, durable hardware, and straightforward installation at a competitive price.

Pedal application error is a rare but high risk event when the accelerator is pressed instead of the brake pedal.

Advantages of Pedal Monitoring Cameras:

By installing a pedal monitoring camera as part of your overall Vehicle Camera solution, fleet operators gain:

  • Conclusive evidence of driver behavior in the event of an incident.
  • Enhanced driver awareness and reduction of pedal application errors.
  • Valuable data for targeted driver training and safety workshops.

The Centrad Edge:

Centrad’s pedal monitoring cameras are not just another accessory; they are an integral part of your safety toolkit. They are:

  • Engineered to provide high-definition clarity in any lighting condition.
  • Crafted for discreet and non-disruptive installation.
  • Built to withstand the daily rigors of fleet operation.
  • Easily integrated into existing fleet management systems for a comprehensive safety overview.


TfL’s mandate is a clear signal to the industry: safety is non-negotiable. Pedal monitoring cameras are now an essential component of modern fleet operations, and Centrad is here to ensure that your fleet not only meets the mandate but also reaps the long-term benefits of advanced safety technology.

I’m Geoff Cross, Managing Director here at Centrad. You might not know, but I used to be a fleet operator. So, I know the challenges and frustrations you’re facing with theft, vandalism, and of course, insurance claims.

In fact, back when I owned a fleet, we knew all too much about  insurance claims, but that’s a story for another day. That’s what gave  me the idea for Centrad – because I know how much of a pain those  issues are. I wanted to solve that problem.

I understand the issues you face, which is why we help fleet operators  like you increase vehicle safety through CCTV and telematics AND  save thousands of £ every single year.
