Key figures

While six of the cameras above were in the top 10 in Quarter 2 (October to December 2016), four new locations have been elevated to the list (in positions four, five, eight and 10). 

Each of the four new locations is part of the Geelong Road camera system, which recorded a 151.9 per cent increase from the last quarter. The increase in infringements issued during this quarter can be attributed to the reactivation of six cameras after a period of downtime due to roadwork and certification upgrades.

The top three cameras this quarter are all located in 40km/h zones.

Road safety cameras in 40km/h zones are in areas with high numbers of pedestrians, such as school zones and strip shopping zones.

Research shows a pedestrian struck by a car travelling at 40km/h has a much greater chance of survival than someone struck at 60 km/h.

The intersection of Geelong Road and Droop Street, Footscray remains in the top 10, however the number of infringements issued from this site has decreased by 22.3% when compared to the previous quarter. This decrease shows motorists are slowing down and obeying the new speed limit of 60km/h (reduced from 70km/h on 6 September 2017), creating a safer environment around the primary school at the site.

  • decreased by 1.9% when compared to the same period last year.

Red light infringements

Total infringements for red light offences
Q3 (Jan - Mar 2017) Q2 (Oct - Dec 2016) Q3 (Jan - Mar 2016)
38,226 42,969 44,979

Key figures

Red light infringements detected by road safety cameras;

  • decreased by 11% from the previous quarter  (October - December 2016)
  • decreased by 15% when compared to the same period last year.

Red light infringements attract high penalties and three demerit points due to the serious nature of crashes at intersections.

Right angle crashes can be particularly severe as many vehicles offer little side protection. Side impacts at speeds as low as 50 km/h can result in death or serious injury.

Notes:

Issue date vs offence date

  • Infringements may not be issued on the date the offence was detected. However, the infringement notice will include both dates, the date that the offence occurred (offence date) and the date the infringement notice was issued (issue date), depending on the purpose of the data.
  • The issue date is always after the offence date. In the case of road safety cameras this is because of the rigorous verification procedures undertaken to ensure the validity of the infringement notice.
  • All data on the Cameras Save Lives website is based on the offence date, unless otherwise indicated.
  • Offences detected in one quarter may not have an infringement issued until the next quarter.
