Speed cam­eras: you haven’t been warned

Wheels (Australia) - - Red Line -

A NSW Au­dit Of­fice re­port has called on the state’s gov­ern­ment to scrap speed cam­era warn­ing signs, claim­ing there is lim­ited ev­i­dence to show that the cur­rent sys­tem has prompted a change in driver be­hav­iour. The NSW Au­di­tor­gen­eral claims warn­ings signs that tell mo­torists where a speed cam­era is lo­cated have stopped the en­force­ment method be­com­ing an ef­fec­tive de­ter­rent. “This lim­its the op­por­tu­nity to mod­er­ate driver be­hav­iour through caus­ing driv­ers to be wor­ried they could be caught any­where, any­time,” the re­port states.
