Victorian Govt goes crazy with fixed speed cameras
I got this info from a good source.
I feel sick when I read the following list. I can see a lot of people driving unlicenced in the near future. Imagine poor people like couriers:
FIXED SPEED CAMERAS
Westgate Freeway - Princes Highway - Operational 07/02/02
1. Top of Westgate Bridge
2. Hoppers Crossing Overpass
3. Point Cook Overpass
4. Point Wilson Overpass
5. Little River Overpass
7. Norlane - ( just before the waterslide)
*please note these are elapsed time trigger cameras, they estimate your
average driving speed between checkpoints. So slowing down before each
overpass will not fool them.
Western Ring Road - Operational 12/02/02
1. Boundary Road - Laverton North
2. Western Highway - Ardeer
3. Calder Freeway - Keilor East
4. Tullamarine Freeway - Tullamarine
5. Pascoe Vale Road - Glenroy
6. High Street - Thomastown
7. Plenty Road ( not operational @ 11/02/02)
The Eastern Freeway has been earmarked for 5 cameras, estimated
operational date 3rd May 2002
The Monash has been earmarked for a further 5 cameras in addition to
the one that has been operational since 28/12/01. This one is approximately
600 metres from the entrance to the Burnley Tunnel. Even though this one is
openly publicised by the media and the state government, it continues
to catch upwards of 700 drivers per day.
The Calder Freeway from Keilor Park Drive to Kyneton has been earmarked
for 9 cameras, estimated operational date to be advised.
The Hume Highway to Albury has been earmarked for 11 cameras, estimated
operational date 7th June 2002
Other Highways and main arterials on the proposed list are as follows;
Western Highway - Ardeer to Ballarat
South Gippsland Highway - Dandenong to Phillip Island
Goulburn Valley Highway - Seymour to Shepparton
Princes Highway - Pakenham to Traralgon
