    dont talk about speed cameras. in Victoria, Australia, they are behind every bush or anything that will hide the fact that they are there. One set of cameras on a freeway, hidden behind a directional sign reaps in $2million dollars a week for the government. The tolerance level is about 3ks. The newest type cover traffic light intersections, both red light and speed cameras, increase your speed in a amber situation and you get a red light fine and exceed the speed limit and you also get a speed fine...

    Lovely money making machines, most people almost expect a ticket to arrive on a regular basis... bit like recieving a phone bill or other regular type accounts..........The road toll in victoria this year is similar to four years ago, I dont see the improvement. I was a member of the police force for 37 years........and I see speed cameras as way of making up for less police on our roads.... visual presence is a much better deterent than ripping people off. Cameras have a place in our law enforcment operations but they are being used excessivly.
