Email reveals 2500 speed camera locations

Speed camera locations

A widely-circulated email revealing 2500 secret locations used for speed cameras across Victoria has embarrassed Richmond Football Club and dismayed police.

The chain-email, forwarded to hundreds of people yesterday and today, tells readers the position of locations used for radar and speed traps across the state.

The spreadsheet attached to the email lists thousands of speed camera locations that are correct up until January 24, 2002. "Sites not appearing on this list, cannot be worked," the document says.

Who exactly started the email chain and leaked the confidential Victoria Police list remains uncertain.

Radio 3AW yesterday suggested the email was circulated by someone from the Richmond Football Club which is sponsored by the Transport Accident Commission.



Club chief executive Ian Campbell denied the leaked email had affected the club's relationship with the TAC, but said the club would talk to the TAC about the incident.

A Richmond spokesperson, when contacted this morning, confirmed the email had been sent to the club. "It was an email that was sent here and obviously someone had done the wrong thing (and passed it on)," they said.

The club said it was conducting internal investigations to find the identity of the mystery person who forwarded the email.

The text accompanying the email says: "Take a look guys, be careful. These are mainly positions for radar traps and those revenue raisers (sic) with the box attached to the front bumper bars."

Victoria Police said they would not investigate the leaking of the document.

"Police are aware of the various lists circulating purporting to be lists of speed camera sites in Victoria," superintendent Peter Keogh said.

"Police have viewed some of the lists which appear to be out of date."

TAC spokesperson De-Arnne Schmidt said the incident would not affect the TAC's sponsorship of Richmond Football Club.

"We don't intend to make any changes to the public education programs we are committed to. The focus on ... the Wipe off Five campaign will continue," she said.

Asked if the information in the email would affect safety on the roads, Ms Schmidt said: "The fact of the matter is that the list is not one hundred per cent accurate. You will need to talk to police about that. If that's the case, then I wouldn't be able to comment on that

I don't know why all the fuss, they are in well known locations and are in simialr places to all the emails that have been floating about for a while.
If they are permanent people will cotton on to where they are eventually anyway
