Three red light cameras will be switched on later this year to catch motorists illegally running through intersections in Christchurch.
A red light camera was installed at the intersection of Bealey Ave and Madras St in 2018, but it had only been used to collect data and no infringements had been issued from it.
A Christchurch City Council spokesman said two more red light cameras would be installed in the third quarter of this year: one at the intersection of Manchester St, Pilgrim Pl and Moorhouse Ave, and the other at the intersection of Gasson St, Madras St and Moorhouse Ave.
Infringements would start being issued from all three cameras after the new ones were installed, a police spokesperson said.

World War II dominated the 1940s. "Our boys" marched through Christchurch before
departing to fight the foe. They were joined by many women who had enlisted in the armed forces to serve in support roles. Here, some of the 549 members of the Women's Service Auxiliary march in a street parade. It is April, 1941. Germany has inflicted a series of defeats
on Allied forces in Europe and Japan is preparing for war in the Pacific. Such parades
boosted patriotism, which helped the military recruitment drive and the raising of money for
the war effort through bonds schemes.
