Police are cracking down on disobedient pedestrians who continue to ignore instruction to safely cross Sydney’s new tram tracks.
The new Circular Quay to Randwick line opened to the public on December 14 however pedestrians are failing to heed warnings from authorities about how to cross the tracks.
NSW Police have engaged in a series of pedestrian compliance operations in the proximity of new light rail routes since its opening.
As of Monday, marking one month of the light rail being in operation, 253 infringements for not complying with traffic signals have been issued, NSW Police confirmed to Yahoo News Australia.
Infringements consist of $76 on-the-spot fines with NSW road rules stating pedestrians can only cross a road either at a designated crossing, or at their own discretion 20 or more metres away from a crossing.
