A STATEWIDE audit will put safety camera locations under the microscope and help to reduce community cynicism.
A CALL for an audit of South Australia’s speed cameras, to ensure they are being used for safety purposes and not government revenue raising, has been supported by the Member for Schubert Stephan Knoll.
THE Gawler and Barossa Valley areas are being subjected to a speed blitz this week, with traffic cameras to be sited at 22 locations around the region.
THREE years ago, Bunyip journalists discussed amongst themselves the presence of speed cameras in Gawler and the sense there had been an increase in policing of motorists across the region.
SPEED cameras will be sited at 35 locations in a sweep through the Gawler, Light, Barossa and Adelaide Plains regions this week.
THE rising number of speed cameras on local roads are part of a strategy to change driver behaviour, not for revenue raising, according to former Road Safety Minister Tony Piccolo.
