Sydney’s traffic police are adding signs warning motorists of the risk of being caught up in a high speed camera trial.
Key points:The signs will be installed in the streets around the CBD, including on major intersections like Bondi Junction, and in the inner west and north-eastThe signs include speed limits and warning signs that include speed limit warning lights, and will also include a speed camera speed warning signThe signs were installed at intersections in the CBD and in other areas around the city in the early hours of Monday morning.
“This trial is still ongoing and we want to encourage people to stay vigilant,” a traffic officer said.
“As soon as you cross a speed limit you should stop and look for the signs, it may not be right but it will give you some information.”
It will also tell you if there is a speed trap, a camera, or an on-road enforcement camera.
The trial is expected to start in October.
The signs are expected to go up in the suburbs of Bondi and on the eastern fringe of Sydney’s CBD.
The city has about 150 cameras on the roads, which are designed to catch drivers that run red lights and speed bumps.
The speed cameras will be placed in the centre of the city and in many areas around Sydney.
“We’re just in the beginning stages and we’re hoping to make a difference and we’ve made a commitment to the community,” the officer said, adding that the signs will go up around the corner in Bondi, as well as in other places.
“It’s just the beginning.”
Traffic Police officer says the speed cameras are a ‘game changer’ to the city’s safetyCatch up on all the latest news from around the country.
The sign in Bondis junction says the signs are part of a trial that will begin in October, and that they are the city “s biggest traffic safety initiative in the world”.
“We’ve got some big changes coming up for our city in terms of speed cameras,” the traffic officer told ABC Radio Sydney.
The traffic police officer said the trial will give drivers “some information” but added that it was still “early days” and that more information would be made available to the public.
“What we’re trying to do is educate drivers and remind them to be aware of the signs.”
In the end, it’s the right thing to do,” he said.
The NSW government is set to unveil its first-ever speed camera legislation later this month.
The state government is also looking at the speed camera pilot project, which is being run by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), and wants to see how fast drivers can be caught using the devices.”
The idea is that speed cameras catch people that are doing the right things and are using the right laws,” a spokeswoman for NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian told reporters in Hobart.”
Speed cameras are great, but the speed limits need to be reasonable, and we’ll look at whether we can find ways to make sure people are not caught speeding.
“Ms Berejicklian has previously promised that her government would consider speed camera technology “as soon as possible”.”
It will be a game changer for our community and our roads,” she said last month.”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we are going to use speed cameras to stop speeding and to make our streets safer.
“For those of you that don’t know, speed cameras have been in the Australian Capital Territory for over a decade.”
That means they’ve been deployed in the ACT, Queensland and Tasmania, and they’ve stopped thousands of cars.
“And this is a technology that is very different to any other speed camera in the country, and I believe this is where our state and our country will be the first to deploy it.”
A new billboard was unveiled in Sydney’s central business district on Monday.
It shows a traffic policeman, and the message: “A ticket for speeding doesn’t just happen in Sydney”.
“Speed is not a crime in NSW, but it is a ticket for failing to use your foot, your brake, your hand brakes, your turn signal or your turn signals,” the sign reads.
