Speed cameras are vitally important to improving safety on our roads, and are used in conjunction with other speed enforcement methods to reduce the amount of deaths on our roads.
In areas not covered by speed and red-light cameras, Victoria Police work to enforce road safety laws. Most enforcement is carried out by specially trained traffic police attached to Highway Patrols who are trained to deal with a myriad of traffic safety issues.
Speed and red-light cameras are designed to detect specific offences and give police more time to prosecute road incidents that require subjective evaluation, such as dangerous driving.

Road safety advertising
For more than 20 years, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) has presented high profile, hard-hitting media campaigns to increase awareness of road safety issues, change behaviour and reduce road trauma.
A number of these campaigns focus specifically on speeding and vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. The campaigns help increase awareness of speed-related issues and address questions around low-level speeding and revenue raising.
