Red-light camera offences shoot up in South Australia

Red-light camera offences shoot up in South Australia

SA Police issued $2.45 million in red-light camera fines in March 2021, compared with $1.53 million in February 2021.

Revenue from red-light camera fines issued in South Australia is up 80 per cent since pre-pandemic levels a year ago.

Revenue from the cameras averaged $1.3 million between November 2019 and March 2020.

In the following eight months, the South Australian government lost about $4 million in red-light camera revenue — about half of that because of less traffic during coronavirus pandemic movement restrictions and another half because of a court ruling that saw thousands of fines waived.

Extra testing behind increase
Last October, South Australia’s Supreme Court overturned a man’s red-light camera fine because the device that captured his car had not been tested using a vehicle going through a red light, as required by regulations.

As a result, SA Police announced the suspension of more than 3,800 fines for disobeying red lights, unpaid as of the date of the judgement, and then later withdrew those that would have been issued over the six subsequent days, before testing began.

An SA Police spokesman today said, following the ruling, officers identified “a number of red-light camera faults across the network that created an inability for cameras to operate at full capacity”.
