Key figures

The road safety camera at the intersection Warrigal Road and Batesford Road, Chadstone recorded the most infringements. Compared to the same quarter last year (October - December 2016), speeding infringements issued at this site decreased 26 per cent. When compared to the previous quarter (July - September 2017), there was an increase in infringements issued of 67 per cent.

The general increase in the number of infringements issued when compared to the previous quarter (July - September 2017) may be attributed to a number of cameras being switched off for maintenance, testing and verification last quarter.

The top two cameras are both 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.

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.

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.
