FORTY drivers have been arrested over the past two weeks for driving through red lights within the Suva-Nausori corridor.
The drivers were apprehended with the help of the three speed cameras that were being tested during the time.
Land Transport Authority chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said this figure was "very disturbing".
He said despite several warnings, some drivers continued to disregard the law.
He said it was a worry to see drivers running through red lights without consideration for other road users.
"Drivers need to be patient, rushing through red lights will not do them any good," Mr Tuinaceva said.
He said with the installation of speed cameras, they would be able to track down drivers any time and any where.
Mr Tuinaceva said they would also ensure that those drivers face the full brunt of the law when they breached road safety rules.
Three speeding cameras were shipped from South Africa early this month and were installed along the Suva-Nausori corridor.
Meanwhile, LTA spokesperson Alfred Wiliame said a new speeding and red light camera legislation would be introduced soon to help make roads safer.
"Under this legislation, red light traffic violations will be enforced as a separate offence carrying a separate fine," Mr Wiliame said.
This legislation, he said would come into force by the end of the year.
