There are a combination of fixed speed cameras, mobile speed cameras and safety cameras across NSW.
Fixed speed cameras
Fixed speed cameras are installed at sites that meet specific criteria developed by the RTA in consultation with NRMA and the NSW Police Force. These criteria are based on injury crash rates and travelling speeds. This ensures that cameras are installed on blacklengths (lengths of road with a high crash rate) and a demonstrated speeding problem.
Mobile speed cameras
Mobile speed cameras are about motorists slowing down and driving within the speed limit at all times. Mobile speed cameras are effective in reducing speed-related crashes because the unpredictability of the location of the cameras leads to a reduction in speeding at all times rather than just when approaching a camera.
Safety cameras are being introduced to make intersections safer by enforcing both speeding and red-light offences. These cameras use digital technology that is capable of detecting both red-light and speeding offences and will be replacing the current outdated red-light cameras that began operating in 1988. Safety cameras will be installed at 200 locations over four years.
