Jon Stanhope is rushing through ‘point to point’ speed cameras in order to “crackdown” on the “alarming” (88%) rise in traffic infringement notices over the past year. One of the reasons cited on last night’s ABC news was “people are just slowing down where they know there’s a speed camera.”
The ABC reports that part of the alarming rise is due to the installation of 14 new cameras in this time.
Talk about mixed messages! Jon’s fighting a massive rise in fines… with a new way of collecting more fines!? And what was that about people just slowing down just for the cameras? There’s an alarming rise, Jon!!
