Thursday, May 10, 2018 PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER Statue Man’s dark past “I’m keeping out of trouble, and I’m keeping it that way.” Page 10 Red light camera returns to nab motorists • By Julia Evans THE CITY is about to get a camera to catch red light-runners – the first since the 1990s. The camera is being installed at the Bealey Ave and Madras St intersection, but will move around the city’s “high risk” intersections, city council acting head of transport Mark Pinner said. “The list of intersections and how long the camera will remain in one place has yet to be decided,” he said. The camera records vehicles travelling through the intersection, the footage is then put through software, which detects red light-running incidents. Police and the city council are investigating enforcement options, Mr Pinner said, but he said it would be run on the same model as cameras currently used in Wellington and Auckland. “Council will be informing motorists about red light camera enforcement, and signage will be part of that information.” He said the city council has launched the campaign to reduce numbers, as crashes at signalised intersections are a “really significant” road safety problem in the city. “Traffic signal crashes are close to a quarter of all crashes in the city, with a social cost of about $27 million per year. •Turn to page 4 DON’T waiT, geT reaDy fOr wiNTer NOw!
