240K speed radar

THE use of speed and red light cameras will come into effect from the end of this month, revealed the Land Transport Authority.

Authority chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said the authority had spent $240,000 on the first set of cameras which would be installed in the Suva-Nausori corridor.

Mr Tuinaceva said they were waiting for the final legislation to be approved by Cabinet before the use of the cameras came into effect.

"The cameras will be used in the Central Division first and we will move to other parts of Viti Levu later in the year," he said.

Mr Tuinaceva said the speed cameras had radars which determined the speed at which a vehicle was travelling at and took a snapshot of it.

He said once in operation, the cameras would take pictures during the day and in the afternoon the memory cards would be removed and viewed by LTA officials to determine vehicles that had breached regulations.
