State government reverses mobile speed camera warning signs

Following a shocking government backflip, speed camera warning signs will be installed again on NSW roadways.

Beginning on January 1, 2023, warning signs will once again be placed before and after mobile speed cameras on state roadways.

The adjustment won’t take effect for many months to give the neighborhood “time to acclimate.”

It happens two years after the state government’s divisive removal of the signage generated a significant public protest.

After the warning signs were removed, mobile speed camera fine income rose ten-fold to more over $40 million in the first year.

The government responded by putting warning signs on top of the speed camera cars.

Beginning the next year, drivers will also get a head’s up that a mobile speed camera is on their way.

Additionally, roof-mounted warning signs are here to stay, providing extra caution to drivers so they can be sure they are driving under the posted speed limit.

“We heard, and cabinet made a decision today,” According to Natalie Ward, the minister for roads, “you will start seeing such signs before and behind the automobiles on every road with all mobile speed camera vehicles on 1 January.”

“These new warning signs will aid in real-time education of motorists, providing them with a head-up to slow down at these high-risk areas of our road network.”

Chris Minns, the leader of the NSW opposition, applauded the action but described the government backflip as a pre-election gimmick to win over voters before the March 2023 election.

They increased their low-range [speeding] fine revenue from about $4 million annually to [more than] $45 million in just one fiscal year, directly out of the wallets of NSW families, according to Mr. Minns.

We think the signs ought to be visible so that drivers alter their actions immediately and avoid committing the offenses in the first place.

Beau Jackson, a teenage highway vigilante, gained notoriety in recent months for parking close to mobile cameras on the NSW Central Coast while holding a temporary sign alerting drivers to possible speed traps.

The adolescent usually parks his car before and after work in spots where he believes cameras are “unfairly” attempting to capture individuals to generate cash, such as at the foot of slopes or where the speed limit abruptly decreases.

He has decided to keep up his watchful activities till the warning indicators start to appear again.

Millions of dollars will still be penalized up to January 1st! I’m not going to quit till then! On Monday night, Beau posted. ‘
