New camera to help reduce road trauma

10 July 2019

A new speed and red light camera will be activated at the Hampstead Road and Folland Avenue intersection in Northfield this week in an effort to reduce road trauma.

The camera will improve safety for all road users by targeting drivers who run red lights and speed through the intersection.

The new camera was installed recently by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.

Potential camera locations are identified on the basis of injury crash numbers, driver behaviour and the presence of vulnerable road users.

Sites must also be suitable for the installation and operation of a speed camera.

The new camera has been accompanied by new “red light and speed camera ahead” signs, which form part of the South Australian Government’s roll-out of larger signage to ensure greater awareness of fixed camera locations.

The larger signs are planned to be installed at all fixed speed and red-light camera locations throughout the state by the end of the year.
