Crashes prompt move but warning letters instead of infringement notices will be issued to speeding drivers early on

November 16, 2012

New point-to-point cameras have been installed on Picton Road, between Wilton and Cataract in New South Wales.

They aim to slow down drivers as 36 truck accidents occurred in the area in the past five years, with speeding the cause of 11 crashes.

"Point-to-point enforcement is about improving both the safety of heavy vehicle drivers and other road users on New South Wales roads," a Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) spokesperson says.

"Speed is often the cause of fatal and serious injury crashes and point-to-point technology will help tackle this problem."

Warning letters instead of infringement notices will be issued to speeding drivers during the initial warning period, with signs also posted at the start and end of the point-to-point enforcement length.

There are 19 point-to-point cameras operating on the Pacific, Federal, Oxley, New England, Hume, Golden and Great Western highways.
