The Office of the Road Safety Camera Commissioner was established in 2012 to increase transparency and enhance accountability of Victoria’s road safety camera system.

The Road Safety Camera Commissioner (RSCC) is an independent authority responsible for:

  • monitoring and reviewing current camera operations
  • reviewing information made available about the camera system
  • investigating and reviewing any part of the system
  • managing complaints from members of the public about technical or systemic issues relating to road safety cameras (excludes intervening in individual cases and reviewing the decision to issue a traffic infringement notice).

The current Commissioner, Stephen Leane, was appointed in December 2019. 

On his appointment, Mr Leane said "I've seen first-hand the impact of road trauma has on the community and camera technology plays a critical role in reducing road trauma. I know how important it is that Victorians must have confidence in the road safety camera system. I shall bring my experience and commitment to road safety to the commissioner’s role, and work on behalf of the community to ensure the system is working fairly and accurately and helping to save lives."
