Key figures

The road safety camera at the intersection of Fitzroy Street and Lakeside Drive, St Kilda recorded the most infringements. However, infringements for this camera decreased by 9.1 per cent compared to the previous quarter.

The top three cameras for Quarter 1 (July - September 2017) are the same as for Quarter 4 (April – June 2017). The combined number of infringements issued by these cameras has decreased by 37 per cent when compared to the previous quarter. The decrease in the number of infringements issued was due to a number of cameras being switched off for maintenance, testing and verification in Quarter 1 (July - September 2017).

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

Research shows a pedestrian struck by a car travelling at 40 km/h has a much greater chance of survival than someone struck at 60 km/h.

  • decreased by 8.6 per cent from the previous quarter (April - June 2017)

Frequently asked questions

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.
