Work has begun on 33 new speed cameras to be erected around the country in an attempt to lower the rate of crashes, deaths and injuries.
They are a part of a $10 million camera expansion programme across the country which will eventually see 56 fixed cameras placed at high risk sites in New Zealand.

- Speeding driver used laser to block speed cameras
- Winston Peters declares war on speed cameras
However superintendent Steve Greally insists police aren't interested in gathering fines.
"With the expansion programme we'd be delighted to issue zero fines, which costs us money and we don't get a cent of anyway," he says.
"We're only interested in the impact they can have in encouraging people to slow down and get to their destination safely.
"This will also continue to be backed by other measures, such as maintaining a highly visible police presence on high risk routes and other enforcement tools. It's quite simple, if people drive at an appropriate and safe speed for the road and the conditions, they'll be in no danger of getting a ticket - or more importantly being involved in a crash."
