Read NSW $peed Camera article

at drive.com.au

Quote:
The NSW Roads and Traffic Authority is pushing ahead with plans to almost double the number of these cameras across the state to 103 from the present 53.

Last year NSW speed cameras collected $52 million, destined for consolidated revenue rather than directly into improving our roads.

Critics who suggest speed cameras are a fiscal rather than a safety measure point out that in Victoria, also dotted with fixed speed cameras, the road toll has risen.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

IMO

Speed camera's dont save lifes.,

If they are so worried about speeding then introduce a system into the car that automatically fines the driver everytime they go over the posted limit!

I wonder how fast attitudes would change then?

But then again., let us continue to ignore other issues in society that are bigger killers!!!

Now that would be a revenue raiser! I'll bet that govts will do that someday, hopefully I'll be too old to drive by then.
