WA’s road safety cameras to bring in $40 million over four years

Using the latest in road safety cameras and technology, the WA state government is expecting to bring in an additional $40 million in revenue from fines over the next four years.

That’s according to details released as part of the WA State Budget last week.

The WA Government is bringing in a raft of road safety technologies. Among this is an extra $6.1 million being spent on new Smart Freeway camera sites on the Mitchell Freeway.

According to budget papers, “Advancements in road safety technology have created opportunities to address unsafe driving behaviours, including driver distraction and a failure to correctly wear seatbelts.

“Trials on Western Australia’s roads and experience from other Australian jurisdictions demonstrate that investment in safety camera technology will influence positive driver behaviour.

“The latest road safety camera technology, paired with powerful data analytics, will enable targeted and effective enforcement focused on improved road safety outcomes.”
