Cali Getting More Traffic Cams To Reduce Accidents

As of this week, nine more traffic cameras go live in the city of Cali, totalling now 29 devices that detect infractions at traffic intersections.

Carlos Panesso, technical coordinador at the Secretaría de Tránsito y Transporte de Cali, said the addition of the units will further reduce traffic accidents.

Currently, the traffic department is making adjustments to the video components of the devices so that they are synchronized with the traffic signal controllers. The change will also see the installation of LED lights that have a lower cost and last much longer than regular bulbs.

According to the the Department of Motor Vehicles statistics, offences at signalized intersections that have cameras has decreased by as much as 40%.

Tickets will be issued to drivers picked off by the cameras between 5am and 11pm. All offences during other times are not recorded, according to the Secretary of Transit, Alberto Hadad.

The use of “fotomultas” (traffic cameras fines) has increased 106% in 2012 over the previous year, with a record fines of COP17.5 billion pesos, in contrast to the COP8.5 billion in 2011.
