  • Speed Camera Questions

    Couple of questions that I couldn't get a clear answer from search.

    a) When are the camera's that take you from behind officially released (they may be out already for all I know) AND

    b) What is with them putting signs out letting you know there is a speed camera prior to the camera lately AND

    c) Why blue signs now.

    I don't have many questions.

    Someone got done eh?

    a? Already out there. Prolly for over a year.
    b? Required to put out a sign, but not required to make it visible.
    c? Something to do with a law change I can't remember. Something about being in front of the camera?


    With regards to b, I think they may have changed that requirement as well but not sure.

    PS, I hope thats ya sister in ya avatar.

      No requirement to put out signs - it's still a "courtesy".
      Blue is less conspicuous, so probably a financial motive there.

        " are you speeding"?

            “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

              I got my picture taken last Sunday on the Great eastern Hwy/Tonkin Hwy overpass as I took off from between the cars. I saw the blue sign but couldn't see if it was a new camera. Will be able to tell you in a few weeks or Months time I suppose.

                a ) No idea
                b ) It catches you off guard. I heard somewhere that there's a rumour they're putting the signs out in front of the cameras to encourage people to slow down, but they're also randomly putting the signs out in places without the cameras (like known blackspots)
                c ) I don't know about you, but I find it harder to spot the signs from afar when they're blue

                  b) they don't have to
                  c) harder to see

                    i heard a rumour that there is a certain time frame for u to receive ur fine and if u don't get it within that (maybe 21 days was wot I heard) then u don't have to pay the fine?
                    (226): Forecast for tonight is alcohol, low standards and poor decisions.

                        Not true, I have heard of people getting tickets 3 months (or more) down the track.

                          They have a few special new multi's that are the funky little box but

                          dammit people search button.

                          the blue signs have been around for a few months i guess there in front so people actually see them and slow down.

                              there was a popo media release quite some time ago with head cop'o dude saying they would be putting the sign in front of SOME speed cameras but NOT ALL so "people would never know".
