I've done the New England numerous times. Cops are worst around Armidale and Tamworth (and almost guaranteed to be patrolling Glenn Innes and 99% of the time Aratula in QLD) although I've always driven past them doing 110-115 and never had a problem (hence this trip is often much quicker than the 'Police state' coast road). This highway is B-Double country as the truckies cannot take doubles up the coast so expect to see lots of trucks towing two trailers and doing 20km/h up many hills.
Fixed cameras are clearly marked and in my experience mobile cameras are normally set up just inside towns close to the part where limits drop down to 60 (how else would they make money?).
Also, I have hit numerous roos at night although I have noticed that with the drought the carnage is worse than ever with wombats and roos now often travelling extended hours.
