Evidence of an infringement
The Road Safety Act 1986 allows data captured by a road safety device to be used as evidence of a speeding or red-light offence. Compliance certificates may be admitted in court as evidence to show the camera has been tested and is operating correctly.
What data does a fixed road safety camera capture?
Images captured by fixed road safety cameras show:
- the location of the offence
- the vehicle
- a close up of the vehicle’s number plate.
Data collected along with the image include:
- date and time of the incident
- location of the camera
- which direction the vehicle was travelling
- the lane in which the vehicle was travelling
- speed of the vehicle (for speeding offences only)
- speed limit of the road where the camera is situated (for speeding offences only)
- time elapsed after the light turns red (for red-light offences only).
