Police union pans speed cameras as “revenue raisers”

Police union pans speed cameras as “revenue raisers”.

The union representing WA police officers has condemned speed cameras as “revenue raisers” and questioned how hiding them in bushes to catch mostly “good people” helped improve road safety.

Union president George Tilbury said he understood why the public was cynical about cameras given they were mostly used on low-speed metropolitan roads, instead of in the country where more deaths were occurring. …

Often not knowing you were travelling over the speed limit until getting an infringement notice in the mail weeks after the fact is hardly a deterrent.

A tax dressed up as road safety. Do you flick your headlights to warn others of a speed camera ahead?
