A busy Auckland road’s controversial transit lane is set to get 68 cameras to better enforce the rules and combat abuse against Auckland Transport staff, Stuff reports. With the current enforcement method, whereby staff stand on the side of the road with a camera, enforcers are put at risk of being abused by angry motorists. According to an Auckland Transport spokesperson, the new cameras will allow for more consistent monitoring of the lanes. Each of the 17 transit zones will have one remote monitoring unit, each containing four cameras.
