New Revenue Cameras in QLD.
Queensland Police have new revenue cameras.
"A powerful mobile radar that is completely hidden from the view of motorists is the police weapon against speedsters this christmas."
"Mounted on the dash board and operated by hand held remote control, the radar can detect speeding motorists up to 1km away and is impossible for other drivers to spot"
"The US-built Decatur Genesis 11 radar can also differentiate between the speeds of two vehicles at the same time and provide a fater response and greater accuracy
Current radar cameras can only detect vehicles going in the opposite direction, the Decatur can detect going in either direction"
This raises two points.
1 : It is illegal to have anything on the front windscreen that can block vision or distract the driver.
2 : This is hand held remote control. Which means the officer must take a hand of the steering wheel, also illegal.
Another case of one law for us and another for the police.
Studies in Europe have proven that education brings the road toll down. Countries that rely on revenue cameras , the road toll remains high.
Britain is a good example with its GATSO cameras.
When is this speed camera bullshit going to end and sensible laws introduced?
