Victoria's speeding fine revenue to increase by 60 per cent, despite safer drivers

Revenue collected from speeding fines is set to increase by nearly 60 per cent, according to figures listed in the Victorian Government's 2020-2021 Budget this week. The increased revenue is the result of an initiative by the State Government to increase the speed camera program by 75 per cent. The discrepancy between the expansion and the forecasted revenue aligns with figures showing speed and red light camera fines have been falling in recent years.

Victorian government announces 2017 road safety plan

The Andrews government in Victoria has announced its 2017 plan to make the state's roads safer in an effort to curb the ever-increasing annual road toll. In a statement released this week, the 2017 plan declares that this year will be Victoria's "year of action" against road fatalities, after 2016 showed an increase in the annual road toll for the third consecutive year. Last year, 291 people died on Victoria's roads, 39 more than 2015.
