Swansea Council is looking to increase the number of junctions with enforcement cameras after what it sees as a successful deployment in Cardiff.

WalesOnline.co.uk reports that highways officers in the city are surveying traffic pinchpoints to see whether cameras could be deployed to punish drivers for breaking rules at junctions or along bus lanes.

Last year, similar cameras in Cardiff netted £4.7million in fines, more than covering the £4.3million cost of operating the system. Cardiff council said the cameras have improved safety and traffic flow.

A Swansea Council spokesman told the website, “We are in the process of surveying a variety of sites where we think there could be issues, with a view to introducing some camera enforcement.”
