Digital 'eyes' to speed up action against speedsters: Officers have to spend time retrieving the films manually

DRIVERS who run red lights or break the speed limit could be dealt with more quickly after the Government unveiled tenders for two new types of digital road cameras on Thursday. More than $10 million has been budgeted for a digital system that photographs cars that jump traffic lights. And up to $3 million is to be spent on digital speed cameras to trap motorists who exceed the limit. Both types of cameras currently in use are analogue and are becoming obsolete, said a Singapore Police Force spokesman. Officers have to spend time retrieving the films manually and sending them for processing. They then have to review the photos before a summons can be issued. Installing digital cameras would speed up the process greatly and help save on resources. Read the full report in Friday's edition of The Straits Times.
