Western Australian drivers to be left in the dark on speed camera locations

Watch out West Australians, the chances of getting pinged at one of the state’s 1800 speed camera locations just increased exponentially. From the start of 2020, the West Australian Government will scrap the regular updates it provides to the public on exactly where the police have installed mobile speed cameras on any given day. It was a helpful service, allowing alert motorists to navigate the state’s road network without fear of getting busted by a camera.
