Dandenong, VIC: Red light runners targeted in safety blitz

29 Aug

Motorists who run the red at the South Gippsland Highway in Dandenong are being targeted in an enforcement initiate that will be handing out AUD738 fines along with four demerit points. Additionally they will face the possibility of a criminal prosecution for more serious offences. The police are using both covert and overt approaches to the identification of offenders.

The safety blitz follows three near-miss incidents and two collisions in August 2014. This notorious automatic half-barrier level crossing has a long history of red light running.
