QLD police union: hidden speed cameras are 'revenue raisers'; don't save lives

The head of the Queensland Police Union (QPU) has publically acknowledged that covert and hidden speed cameras do not save lives and are indeed nothing more than revenue raisers for the state government. Confirming the public’s perception that hidden camera vans and trailers have no effect in reducing the road toll, the president of the Queensland Police Union, Ian Levers, told CarAdvice it’s time for a change. “They are revenue raisers pure and simple, we all know it,” Levers said.

Queensland Police trailer cameras snap 600 speeding motorists

The Queensland Police Service (QPS) has nabbed over 600 speeding motorists since late December thanks to its new trailer speed cameras. Five of the mobile speed cameras were deployed across Queensland's busiest roads on December 23 as part of the Christmas road safety campaign. Since then, 647 high-end speeding motorists have been caught in a matter of weeks, including one driver who was detected travelling 161km/h in a 110km/h zone on the Bruce Highway at Mons on the Sunshine Coast.
