A crash in Dunedin this week prompted a plea from police to road users not to run red lights, but it appears to have fallen on deaf ears.
On Monday, a vehicle that stopped suddenly to avoid hitting a car that ran a red light at the intersection of St David and Cumberland Sts was rear-ended by another one.
Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen yesterday said intersection crashes were ‘‘flat out occurring’’ across the city.
‘‘If it’s an orange, do your best to stop, unless obviously it’s unsafe to do so.’’
The message appears not to have got through to some, however. Yesterday afternoon, an Otago Daily Times photographer caught on video several road users, including cyclists, going through red lights at a North Dunedin intersection.
The footage was captured at the intersection of North Rd and Bank St between 5pm and 5.30pm.
