Key figures

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

The long-term trend for 40km/h zones shows driver behaviour is improving quarter-to-quarter, with a steady decrease in the number of infringements issued from these cameras.

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.

Compliance with posted speed limits remained consistently high across Victoria at over 99 per cent for vehicles passing fixed and mobile cameras.

Red light infringements

Total infringements for red light offences
Q1 (Jul – Sep 2016) Q4 (Apr – Jun 2016) Q1 (Jul – Sep 2015)
37,746 42,087 39,026

Key figures

Red light infringements detected by road safety cameras;

  • decreased by 10.3% from the previous quarter  (April – June 2016)
  • decreased by 3.3% 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.
