NSW State Opposition: ‘This is about revenue, not road safety’

EXCLUSIVE The NSW state opposition has labelled the move to remove warning signs from mobile speed cameras, as announced yesterday by NSW Transport minister Andrew Constance, is "all about revenue, not road safety". Shadow Minister for Roads, John Graham, acknowledged “speed cameras are important in ensuring motorists adhere to road rules”. However, Mr Graham told CarAdvice the timing of the government’s announcement made it clear road safety wasn’t the only motivation for the change.

Victoria: Speed camera revenue distribution locked in under new legislation

New laws will lock in how revenue raised by Victorian speed cameras is used to maintain the state's roads, thanks to new legislation from the Labor Government. All money raised from speeding fines handed out by mobile and fixed cameras, along with on-the-spot police monitoring, is currently put into a 'Better Roads Victoria Fund' reserved for road upgrades.

Queensland's top 10 speed cameras rake in $6.3 million in one year

The top 10 speed camera sites in southeast Queensland have pulled in more than $6 million for the government, in the year between March 2010 and March 2011. Up to 47,915 lives were saved (or contributed to the revenue raising, depending on which way you look at it) thanks to the sites. Official dollar figures haven't been released, but according to a News Limited report, even if every fine dished out was the minimum speeding infringement of $133, it would equate to $6,372,695.
