Red light runners

A blitz on traffic lights in Hobart's CBD's caught 14 drivers in just one hour yesterday, bringing a sharp response from Tasmania Police.

The fine for running foul of a red light is the loss of three demerit points and $159.

We're being warned there'll be more police focus on the problem in the near future.
