SINGAPORE - A total of 240 digital red light cameras will be installed island-wide by mid-2015, the police said on their Facebook page.

Since March 2014, a total of 120 digital red light cameras have been installed across Singapore.

This is an initiative under the "Safer Roads Singapore" action plan to deter and detect motorists who endanger other road users by beating the red lights.

These cameras have enhanced capabilities to better identify vehicles that run red lights.

"All motorists should adopt safe and courteous driving habits which includes not beating the red light," the police said.

"Together, we can make our roads safer for all to reach their destinations safely."

The digital red light cameras are installed in place of film cameras. They do not run out of film and can work 24 hours a day.

Also, unlike the film cameras which shoot in black and white, the 11-megapixel cameras capture images in colour.

The digital red light cameras are leading to more violators being caught, with a jump of 37.4 per cent in the number of summonses issued between March and September this year.

In comparison, the increase in the number from 2011 to last year was at 7 per cent at most.
