What’s On Our Radar?

8500 WA Drivers On The Brink

FIXED speed cameras in Perth are not switched on all the time because the big number of fines they issue creates a problem for police.

Police minister Liza Harvey made the comment today while unveiling a fifth fixed speed camera for the city, located between the Farrington Road on-ramp and the South Street off-ramp.

When asked why the five fixed cameras weren't operational all the time, Ms Harvey said the number of infringements issued “created a problem” for the police department.
“It does create a large volume of infringements that need to be processed which
created a problem,” she said. “We want to give drivers a chance at remaining compliant and rotate the cameras around with that element of surprise and people not quite
understanding when they are there we find that we get improvements in driver compliance,” she said. “We get a very good effect on driver behavior with the current system that we have in place.”

Ms Harvey said the current system would only be changed with sufficient evidence from other trials. “There’s a range of different things that we could do but we find that the system that we have in place is getting the desired outcome,” she said.

The new fixed camera is the state’s first fixed camera which can record both the front and back number plates, which Ms Harvey says will help catch motorcyclists breaking the law. “Interestingly during the test period with this fixed location, police are already investigating six hoon drivers who were caught driving between 146km/h and 178km/h on the freeway just outside this hospital development,” she said. “So very serious offending indeed. And we know from previous mobile deployments at this site that we’re getting about 18 per cent of non-compliance with the speed limit, which isn't good enough. This site is a site of high non-compliance. “We rotate the cameras through the different locations at Stirling, Innaloo, Kwinana Freeway south, this one and then one on Roe Highway.”

Shadow police minister Michelle Roberts said Ms Harvey was “not interested” in tackling the harder road safety issues. “I would like to see the Road Safety Minister launching initiatives to help road safety, not fundraisers,” Ms Roberts said. “We have never seen a lesser police presence on our roads, yet these cameras will raise millions of dollars for the Government.”
