New red light speed camera at Charlestown Road and Carnley Avenue, Kotara

Kotara's newest red light-speed camera is set to be operational from Friday, November 29, though motorists will have a month to get used to it before penalties are sent out.

The camera has been installed at the intersection of Charlestown Road and Carnley Avenue.

It will operate in warning mode for one month during which time drivers caught speeding or running red lights will be sent a warning letter to encourage them to change their behaviour.

Fines and demerit points will be sent to offending drivers at the end of this period.

Fines from red-light speed cameras go directly into the Community Road Safety Fund to deliver targeted road safety initiatives in NSW.
