SA Police to put infringement photos online


Drivers facing a speeding or red light fine in South Australia will soon be able to verify their photo

June 25, 2013

Drivers facing a speeding or red light fine in South Australia will soon be able to verify their photo online.

South Australia Police will be releasing images online from all fixed and red light cameras, including mobile speed cameras, through a free service.

The new initiative is part of police’s commitment to provide a transparent camera system following last year’s comprehensive review of Expiation Notice Branch.

Deputy Commissioner Grant Stevens says the police recognised a need to provide the public with better and easier access to expiation information.

"We undertook six months of technical development to deliver this new online service which we believe will simplify the process for accessing and viewing photos of alleged offences," Stevens says.

"Police are committed to road safety and speed and red light cameras deter speeding and control driver behaviour at traffic lights.

"That said we want to reassure people that the system is fair and the technology accurate, so quick online access to their photos is a way we can help do that."

The photos will not be available once the expiation notice has been paid or if the payment period has ended or been suspended pending a review, or if the driver was elected to be prosecuted.

However, in those cases, a hard copy will still be supplied on request.
