PERMANENT speed and red-light cameras on our roads will now act as deterrent to drivers.

The LTA said in a statement it had ascertained that the major cause of road fatalities were speeding and reckless driving.

"With the installation of permanent speed and red light cameras and the erection of mobile speed red light cameras on various roads will act as a deterrent to drivers to be cautious while driving at all times," said LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia.

"At present there are only two mobile speed and red light cameras used by LTA and they're currently being used in the Central Division.

"The authority will purchase two more this year to supplement LTA speed monitoring and surveillance capacity.

"Now that we are at our utmost best in reducing our road fatality to its lowest ever in 25 years, the challenge before us is our ability to maintain and even better it."
