40km/h zones

Road safety cameras in 40km/h zones are located in places with high pedestrian concentrations such as strip shopping zones and school zones. Research shows that a pedestrian struck by a vehicle travelling at 60km/h is unlikely to survive, whereas a pedestrian struck at 40km/h has a much greater chance of survival.

Drivers are given warning as they approach the enforced 40km/h zones with signage showing they are approaching 40km/h zones. 40km/h zones have been enforced by road safety cameras at ten sites around Victoria for some time, primarily by direct policing. The move to automated speed enforcement in 40km/h zones provides an ongoing and significant deterrence in those zones and contributes to a reduction in pedestrian road trauma.

The map below indicates the location of all 40km/h zones in Victoria that are enforced with fixed cameras. In addition to these cameras, mobile cameras will continue to be used to enforce speed in 40km/h zones.

If you are unable to view the map above, a list of locations is available.

The crash statistics clearly show motorists need to slow down at these sites. Below is crash data for five years from 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2016.
