    crazywog, u r crazy, too much time on ur hands...well done though for highlighting locations for members in melb...

    there should be more of them, but then u would need more staff to process the increase in fines...

    i'm amazed how many ppl nowadays are running the gauntlet just to save a five minutes....

    my philosophy is - is 5 minutes (+) worth someone's life....

    Its actually fairly hard to get done by a fixed speed camera in NSW cause there are three big warning signs before the cameras
    How ppl get done by these amazes me as it couldnt be more blatantly obvious that they are coming up.
    I went to Melbourne one weekend and got done for doin 5 KM over in a 60 zone which was also at the bottom of a hill.
    The gov down there are obviously concerned with revenue.

    The infra red speed cameras can book you going either direction. In Vic (at least) all of the red light cameras book you from behind and the photo is set up so that 2 frames are taken with the red light in the shot to show you entered the intersection while the red was illuminated. One shot is taken as you pass over the white line and another is taken a short time after that to prove you have entered the intersection (and not just rolled your front wheels slightly over the line).

    They're the square shaped ones and are mounted to a pole before EVERY intersection that has a camera. They say something like, "Road Safety Cameras Operate in this Area".

    They are placed before EVERY intersection that has the cameras installed, even if the camera isn't checking your direction of traffic flow. It's amazing how blind people are though. They also don't realise that it's not just one of those deterrent signs that never delivers what it says, it is a genuine warning that there is a camera ahead.

    It also makes them look like an idiot at court later on if they bounce the ticket and contest it. The prosecution can mention to the magistrate that there was a warning sign erected prior to the intersection and it was clearly visible. Makes the defendant look rather silly.

    I think if you get done by one of these then you should also be charged with driving without due care and attention because you cant be paying too much attention to the road if you dont notice the half a dozen signs.
