Nominate danger spots as speed camera sites soar

Rodney Stevens

The number of mobile speed camera sites across the state will be doubled to more than 5400 under a plan by the NSW Government to curb the escalating road toll and Clarence Valley locals are invited to suggest new camera locations.

Designed to stop motorists predicting where mobile speed cameras might be operating, the additional sites, which will bring mobile speed camera locations in NSW to more than 5400, will be selected over the next 12 months with input from the public.

Residents are invited to suggest local black spots or known “hoon” streets to become a new mobile speed camera location.

The Minns government are acting on a 2018 recommendation by the then NSW Auditor General that mobile speed camera locations be increased as the existing sites used made “enforcement more predictable”.

The increase in mobile speed camera sites comes after the number of lives lost has already exceeded 100 in NSW in 2024, which is 13 more than at the same time last year.

To date in 2024, 109 lives have been lost in serious incidents, while at the same time in 2023, 96 people were killed in crashes.

In the 12 months to April 18, 2024, 364 people were killed on NSW roads, compared to 280 in the previous 12 months to April 18, 2023.

Information from Transport for NSW shows mobile speed camera operators across the state are contracted to work about 21,000 enforcement hours per month, which will remain the same.

The increase in mobile speed camera sites won’t mean the cameras will increase enforcement hours, it will give operators greater flexibility where to set up as sites increase from 2742 to 5442 locations.

A contractor is working with Transport for NSW to determine new locations, with reports of 575 new sites proposed for northern Sydney and 500 new locations in the Hunter region.

Residents are invited to provide suggestions for new mobile speed camera locations for consideration in the 5442 sites to be rolled out across the state.
