    That little bastard got me about 5mins after they installed it. Gone are the days of getting a good run-up for the hill.

    Back onto topic here's what's happening with Auckland's new tunnel (emphasis mine) ...

    Police has released the first six weeks of infringement data for its safe speed cameras at Waterview Tunnel in Auckland.

    Police operates four safe speed cameras, one at each entrance and exit, at Waterview Tunnel.

    These cameras went live on 21 July 2017, following an extensive calibration and testing process.
    Motorists were given advance warning on NZ Transport Agency signage that the safe speed cameras would be enforcing the 80 km speed limit.
    This was supported by a highly visible Police presence in and around the tunnel as people got used to the new route, to encourage safe driver behaviour.
    National Manager of Road Policing Superintendent Steve Greally says it was important to release this first set of infringement data due to the high level of public interest and to reiterate the need to drive safely and to the conditions.

    From 21 July 2017 – 31 August 2017, Police safe speed cameras at Waterview Tunnel issued 9,756 infringement notices for excessive speed, from a total of 1,520,767 vehicle trips through the tunnel.

    This equates to 6 in every 1,000 vehicles going through the tunnel (or 0.6%) incurring an infringement notice.

    The total infringement fee value of the notices generated by the safe speed cameras was $948,220.

    “Unfortunately, the infringement data released for the Waterview Tunnel shows that a large number of road users are simply driving too fast.
    The speed limit set for Waterview Tunnel is there to keep all road users safe and a crash would likely cause significant harm and traffic disruption,” Mr Greally says.
    [...]

    Excellent result Wal.

    Tunnel should be paid for in no time.

    And if they put “Red Light” Cameras in Tauranga we’d be rate free in 12 months.

    Article says "excessive" speed, but wonder if different fines for those not as "excessive" (lower limit speedsters).

    Here's a dash cam of the Waterview Tunnel.. Another road cam of a brazen motorcyclist telling of drivers texting when driving around Auckland City and adjacent motorway.
