The ever-shrinking content on the Canberra Times website warns us that the ACT’s drivers are the most observed in Australia when it comes to speed cameras.
- There are 22 fixed speed or speed and red-light cameras in the ACT one for every 15,700 territorians.
That’s proportionately higher than NSW, with one for every 41,000; Victoria, with one for every 33,300; and South Australia, with one for every 23,300.
Firstly, and most importantly, when did we become “Territorians”? Surely we don’t have the crocodiles or cyclones to pull this off?
Secondly, if we must pay taxes why not take the money from those on our roads who can’t manage to drive at the right speed? Are revenue raising speed cameras a bad thing in any way?
