Brand New Cameras and Hefty Fines: Big Brother is Watching in Rijeka

Lauren Simmonds

Big Brother has finally taken up residence in the ”city that flows”, also known as Rijeka. After numerous reports of the cameras being placed there, they’re now fully up, running and functional and have already delivered hefty fines to those who decide to commit driving offences in five different locations in the city.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 16th of August, 2019, as of yesterday, offences recorded by Rijeka’s brand new, modern traffic surveillance cameras, set up at five locations in the city, have already seen some of their respective punishments dealt out.

Drivers in Rijeka – beware. There are five locations within the city that have otherwise repeatedly been reported to be ”home” to some of the highest number of traffic violations – the intersection of Riva street and Splitska street, then the intersection of Riva Boduli Street and Riva street, and Ivan Zajc street, Fiumar street and Adamićeva Street street (near Adriatic square/Jadranski trg). If necessary, it has been stated that it might be possible to extend this new camera system to other locations, that is, to purchase yet more cameras to place across the City of Rijeka.

According to a report from Novi list, this is a system put in place for the monitoring of the common and improper stopping and parking of vehicles, which was initially presented to the public back in mid-July. The goal is to increase Rijeka’s overall traffic safety and reduce the number of violations which end up slowing down the regular flow of traffic at key checkpoints within the city.

The 200,000 kuna system works by setting the cameras record and document all vehicle stops automatically and in real time, 24 hours a day, every single day, by creating visual records, after which traffic monitors decide whether or not what has been recorded is a misdemeanor.
