Have your say.
Should speed cameras be hidden to catch more people?
From the WA Police Website:
Myth: "Speed cameras are in sneaky positions."
Fact: The Western Australia Police is happy for drivers to be aware of speed camera locations to encourage them to slow down and save themselves from being in a serious or fatal collision. Camera locations can be found on the 'Camera locations' link. Mobile speed camera sites are assessed and approved by specialist traffic police and these sites must conform to the criteria - fatal or serious crash locations; school zones; areas of reported speed related hoon complaints; or areas where 15% or more of vehicles are exceeding the speed limit.
Sites can also be chosen by police if they believe there is a specific risk at that location.
From an Everything Geraldton reader:
[Is this] "in the spirit of not being revenue raising and not being 'sneaky' ".
