The Australian state of Victoria will replace the old wet-film red light cameras with new digital cameras as part of the technology upgrade to reduce road accidents.

Additionally, these new cameras will be able to take on a speed enforcement capability and facilitate the overall speed camera network.

The Department of Justice and Victoria police has identified 30 sites for the installation of these new digital cameras, based on high levels of red-light running or collision rates, the Traffic Technology Today website reported.

Currently, 83 sites are being covered with 26 wet-film red-light cameras and 82 fixed dual-speed and red-light digital cameras at intersections, across the state.

Activation date for these cameras will be fixed after completion of the installation.
