Key figures

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.

Infringements from the camera located at the intersection of Geelong Road and Droop Street, Footscray, increased by over 200 per cent compared to the previous quarter. The speed limit was reduced from 70km/h to 60km/h on 6 September 2016 to slow down traffic around a primary school and provide a consistent speed limit for motorists driving on Geelong Road. Electronic signage warned motorists that road safety cameras would enforce the new speed limit for two weeks prior to the change, and continued to warn motorists for two weeks following the change.

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

Speeding and red light offences

Q2 (Oct - Dec 2016) Q1 (Jul – Sep 2016) Q2 (Oct - Dec 2015)

Speeding infringements detected by both fixed and mobile cameras;

  • increased by 4.0% from the previous quarter (July - September 2016). The increase between these quarters is consistent with previous years, where we see a seasonal increase of infringements due to increased traffic during the Christmas holidays.
  • decreased by 7.2% when compared to the same period last year.

Speeding infringements (fixed and mobile cameras)

Speeding categories Q2 (Oct - Dec 2016) Q1 (Jul – Sep 2016) Q2 (Oct - Dec 2015)

Exceed speed by 10km/h but less than 15km/h 53,153 49,939 54,864
Exceed speed by 15km/h but less than 25km/h 19,135 17,443 19,288
Exceed speed by 25km/h but less than 30km/h 1,812 1,737 1,994

Total 319,548 310,708 343,168

Key figures

Speeding infringements detected by both fixed and mobile cameras;

  • increased by 2.8% from the previous quarter (July - September 2016)
  • decreased by 6.9% when compared to the same period last year.

Red light infringements

Total infringements for red light offences
Q2 (Oct - Dec 2016) Q1 (Jul - Sep 2016) Q2 (Oct - Dec 2015)
42,969 37,746 47,318

Key figures

Red light infringements detected by road safety cameras;

  • increased by 13.8% from the previous quarter  (July - September 2016)
  • decreased by 9.2% 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.
