The South Australian Government’s 100 Day Plan includes a commitment to conduct a speed camera audit. An audit of fixed safety cameras is underway to ensure they are operating for safety purposes and not to raise revenue.
An independent road safety consultant working with the University of Adelaide Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR) is reviewing South Australia’s overall fixed safety camera program and will produce a report with recommendations for any improvements that would enhance road safety.
The review group will also work with key road safety stakeholders such as SA Police, the Motor Accident Commission and the RAA to ensure there is a shared vision of speed management for South Australia. Their report will also provide advice on proposed locations for the next 10 cameras and examine the protocols and processes used by SA Police to identify the deployment of mobile safety cameras.
The report will be available to the public.
