Speed Camera Vans MIA?

By cranky - 11 October 2012 32

I’m sure I’m not imagining that these things have virtually disappeared from our roads.

Havn’t seen one for at least a week or 2.

Any hot goss on why they may have been pulled?

What’s Your opinion?

They’ve succeeded in their goal of slowing down Canberra drivers and are no longer needed.

I haven’t seen a Canberra driver breaking the law in months.

Correct.

They are at the shop being re-tooled as Indicator Vans and Fog-Light Vans.

I passed one on Streeton drive last night. I was doing the speed limit while everyone zoomed past me.. they would have got 5 or 6 people just in that instance..

Not that I’m a complete granny driver, but sometimes so many people overtake me while I’m doing the exact speed limit that I wonder if my speedo is working properly..

That’s right, their work here is done and they are now going to use their powers for good elsewhere.

Helmetless bike riding scofflaws beware…

LOL 🙂 yeh the revenue cameras are still around. Saw one on Belco Way a couple of days ago.

I was surprised when I saw one yesterday, on a back street I don’t know the name of, near Weston Park in Yarralumla!

I suspect my point has been proved.

I would have expected about three people to have reported speed vans on their daily comute today.

There was one about halfway up Tillyard Drive on the Charnwood side on Wednesday morning.

Speed camera was in Williamson Street, Holder late last week.

Passed one on Drakeford Dr northbound yesterday evening.

BUT if you want a juicy pre-Election conspiracy, consider this: the Athllon Drive P2P cameras had footings laid, wiring done, barriers installed, and signage poles put up over 2 months ago. Since then – nothing. No installation of the actual cameras or their poles, or even “P2P cameras coming here” signs like were installed on Hindmarsh Drive.

Why would that be Katy & Co? I thought you liked to promote “road safety initiatives” like $peed cameras! So is the delay due to some ACT Govco stuff-up, or not wanting to (further) piss off Brindabella voters?

Saw one in Stonehaven Cres Deakin and another in Canberra Ave next to Kingston Oval in the last few days.

I used to see them frequently on the 3 mains roads I use but it’s definitely a lot less now. I was wondering the same thing myself.

Maybe the fixed and P2P cameras are doing a good enough job for less money. Speaking of which, has anyone been caught at the P2P yet, or know anyone that has?
