    This isn't revenue raising.

    I don't think it's as bad as that.

    There's no way that there's 4 mobile speed cameras operating in Dapto and 3 at Albion Park at the same time.. That's 7 within 20kms. I counted 30 in the Illawarra on that list which. I can only think that's the locations they use at any given time.

    Its just a list of approved camera locations, just because there are 4 camera locations doesn't mean there are 4 cameras in use.

    It just means a camera can legally be used in one of those 4 locations.

    It is obvious , the idiot tax cameras ( sign posted cameras ) were not raising enough money , so they make them covert . Dunno what the gumbymint would do for revenue if all the road users had the gumption to travel at 5 kph below the speed limit for 12 months .

    The way I look at this is, let the idiots pay the idiot tax and then the government will have less reason to have their hand in my back pocket for some other way make up for the revenue shortfall.

    That's not a bad thing Pete, they're to catch people using their mobile phones while driving ( driver and passenger )

    So passengers aren't allowed to use their phone while the car is in motion? Serious question, I'm in another state and AFAIK it's allowed in Qld.

    I thought the passenger could use it as a phone but no video to driver or facetime etc?

    At one stage couldn't a driver could hand his phone to passenger to take a call?

    The mobile camera list is just a.list of sites in the state that have been approved to use. These would change over a year depending on roadworks, changes to roads and number of traffic incidents in an area listed as black spots. Are the point to point cameras in NSW just for heavy vehicles?

    In some states in the U.S., speed cameras are often operated by private companies that “revenue share” with the municipality (i.e., receive a “bounty”). The profit motive tends to incentivize the sensitivity of the radar cameras. I’m not opposed to speed enforcement, but am against this sort of arrangement.

    Same in Aus?
