Po­lice want cam­eras ditched

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NEWS NATION -

QUEENS­LAND po­lice are call­ing for an end to “sneaky” covert speed cam­eras the pub­lic sees as sim­ply cash cows for the State Gov­ern­ment. Po­lice union boss Ian Leavers said his of­fi­cers were tired of suf­fer­ing abuse as “rev­enue rais­ers” and has called on the State Gov­ern­ment to ditch the un­marked or un­manned cam­era trucks, vans and trail­ers and put more po­lice on the roads. The ap­peal has been backed by peak mo­tor­ing body, the RACQ, which said its mem­bers hated the hid­den cam­eras which driv­ers be­lieve just put cash in gov­ern­ment cof­fers.
