Cameras installed at level crossings to catch dangerous drivers

Network Rail’s announced it’s installing cameras at 13 level crossings on the part of the network used by Greater Anglia in order to catch people trying to cross tracks once warning lights have started flashing.

The red light safety enforcement cameras are used to identify vehicles that fail to stop at level crossings and capture this evidence to support legal action.

Offenders face a £100 fine and three points on their licence, a prosecution or at best attendance on an awareness course.

Network Rail says jumping the lights at level crossings can have “catastrophic consequences” and they not only risk their own lives, but also those of train drivers and their passengers, and that cameras are a “proven, cost-effective way” to improve safety and encourage motorists not to take unnecessary risks when crossing the railway.
