Fight speed at lights
The Sunday TelegraphSunday 14 September 2003
|SPEED cameras should be installed in all ”black spot intersection” traffic lights across NSW to help reduce road fatalities, lobby groups have urged.
A dual-functioning red light speed camera has been proposed as a way of combating the rising death toll on NSW roads.
In a fortnight, 65 such cameras will begin functioning across Victoria.
The camera will work in two ways; catching drivers who run red lights as well as those who speed across intersections, even on a green light. Drivers who speed through a red light would be issued with two tickets.
Pedestrian Council of Australia chairman Harold Scruby has called on the NSW government to adopt the initiative.
