Victoria’s road safety camera system consists of both fixed and mobile cameras placed at carefully chosen locations.

The types of camera are:

Locations

Intersections

Road safety cameras positioned at intersections are preventing crashes and in doing so are saving lives, minimising and averting injuries.

Research by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) shows a 47% reduction in crashes on the intersection approach where a camera was installed and a 26% reduction on the other intersection approaches.

Freeway

Cameras are positioned on freeways to prevent motorists from exceeding the speed limit.

Ensuring motorists obey the speed limits on our freeways is critical as crashes at higher speeds have more severe consequences, with higher rates of fatalities and serious injuries.

There are currently road safety cameras located on the following Victorian freeways:

Railway
