RNZ reported in May that police no longer wanted to manage the camera network because of rising costs and the belief it did not align with core police work.
The government yesterday announced the transfer of the operations as part of a suite of changes.
These include dropping speed limits around schools, boosting the number of speed cameras and introducing speed camera warning signs.
The government said it expected the changes to become law by the middle of next year.
Didn't see too much about it on the usual news sites, just RNZ. Not sure how to feel about it, other than hopefully not a step towards privatization?
What are your guys thoughts?
