The registration of licence plates occurs in the most meticulous way possible. However, it is still possible that mistakes are made.

You can regard the letter you received as not send. We would appreciate your feedback on wrongful registration. Feedback can be send to the address listed in the letter you received.

The camera only registers your license plate, not band name or car type. Therefore, it is impossible for us to check if there is another car driving with your licence plate. If you receive a lot of fines you are not responsible for, it can indicate someone is using your license plate. We advise you to contact the police on this phone number: 0900-8844.

Category D: General questions
What will the project cost the municipality of Breda?
The municipality of Breda and the ministry of infrastructure and environment both invested about €500.000 though the Beter Benutten project into this campaign. This was necessary because of the appending future problem of increased traffic in Breda. Because of the project, an estimated 1000 rides over the Wilhelminasingel will be gone. This is much more effective that constructing new infrastructure.
What is Beter Benutten?
The avoidance of the Wilhelminasingel is part of national program “Beter Benutten” from the ministry of infrastructure and environment and is connected tot he deals made fort he structural vision 2030. In the coming 2,5 years we will put in significant effort to reduce travel time over the singels. This involves a green wave on the Beverweg, a fast bus lane and a Green wave for cyclists on the Claudius Prinsenlaan and a fast cycle lane on the St. Ignatiusstraat. The goal is to reduce the delay by 15% for cars in Breda and a better accessible city centre for cars, cyclists and public transportation.
It is not that busy at all on the Wilhelminasingel, why do the project anyways?
We can see traffic increasing in the Wilhelminasingel now that the Doornboslaan is open again. The rising economy and the and increasing road works in the area influence the traffic flow on the Wilhelminasingel. To prevent the clogging up of the city centre and the singels, we have started this project along with similar ones.
It is busier on other streets, why choose this part of the singel?
A good traffic flow is important fort he accessibility of the city centre. Research tells that local traffic can get tot heir destination using a different route as well.
Is there an alternative fort he Wilhelminasingel?
Traffic from Breda-Noord Can commute via the Beverweg. In the coming period a green wave will be installed here. For cyclists there will be a fastcycle route on the Ignatiusstraat and public transportation will get a HOV-lane langs de Claudius Prinsenlaan.
Can you use the app without compromising traffic safety?
During traveling, only the route map will be displayed, the user cannot operate the app. Users earn points if the obey the speed limit and use the avoidance route. This stimulated responsible and safe traffic behaviour.
