Speeding fines triple in NSW after warning signs removed from mobile speed cameras – report

Revenue from speeding fines in NSW has more than tripled since the state government removed warning signs from mobile speed detection cameras late last year. A report by 9News revealed in December 2020 the state’s coffers were topped up by almost $2.5 million in speeding fines, which have tripled since the phase-out of warning signs for mobile speed camera cars.

NSW to switch to unmarked mobile speed camera cars

The NSW Government will soon adopt the sneaky tactics used by other states – using anonymous-looking unmarked speed camera cars parked on the side of the road, and removing the bold reflective signage on some of its existing vehicles. In November 2020, authorities in NSW announced portable reflective warning signs positioned before and after mobile speed camera cars would be removed over the coming year – and the contracting company’s enforcement hours would be tripled across the state.

The incident occurred in Nash County, North Carolina last week when two police cars were responding to an earlier crash. The Tesla ploughed into one police car which was then pushed into the other police and struck the officers at the scene, however according CBS17.com no injuries were reported.
