Simon Corbell has announced he’s introduced a bill to start up point-to-point cameras.
“The first point-to-point system will be installed on Hindmarsh Drive and is expected to become operational in the second half of 2011.
The system uses cameras equipped with with Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology, and scans photographs to identify vehicle numberplates. The system takes time-stamped photographs of the back of vehicles as they pass two places (detection points) to calculate the vehicle’s average speed between those points. If the average speed exceeds the average speed limit between those points, the driver may be charged with a speeding offence.
For those wanting more detail the Forward Design Study is available.
Simon promises your privacy will be protected to the same standard as other ACT Government projects.
It’s all for your own safety of course.
