Community input sought on speed camera review


NSW auditor-general asks community to identify speed cameras that do not improve road safety

April 19, 2011

NSW Auditor-General Peter Achterstraat has called on the public to identify speed cameras that do nothing to contribute to road safety.

Achterstraat is conducting a review into the effectiveness of fixed and mobile speed cameras across NSW and wants community input.

He has uploaded a feedback form on the Audit Office website to allow people to identify cameras they believe benefit safety and those that do not.

"There is a lot of knowledge in the community about how fixed speed cameras operate," Achterstraat says.

"While I will be seeking expert advice on this issue, it is important that people have a chance to have their say on an issue of considerable public concern."

The review was launched following community concerns that speed cameras were simply raising revenue. Achterstraat will examine crash data and speeding fines at all speed camera locations.
