Plans are underway to remove warning signs before speed cameras across New South Wales in a bid to crack down on speeding deaths. Drivers are calling out the plan 'revenue raising' and argue it won't save lives. The NRMA aren't supporting the move, and say warning signs reduce speeing.

Peter Khoury, spokesman for the NRMA, on Monday said such signs were "necessary and essential" as part of efforts to prevent road deaths.

"The warning signs act as a crucial education tool to alert motorists that they're driving in dangerous locations where people have been killed or injured and obviously what we want them to do is slow down," he told reporters in Sydney.

NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance has said the government would consider the removal of speed camera warning signs, referring to expert evidence which claims 54 lives a year could be saved without signs.

He said the government would "consider any advice that tells us we can save lives".

Drowning inquest finds Glenelg beach lifesavers should have hours extended, more signs .
Extending surf lifesaving hours on Adelaide's Glenelg beach and adding warning signs that people have died near the breakwater are among key recommendations of an inquest looking into the drownings of three children at the beach. South Australia's deputy coroner said more children may have died if the incident that led to the drowning deaths of best friends Frank Ndikuriyo and Thiery Niyomungere had occurred later in the evening.The boys, both aged 11 and originally from Burundi in central Africa, drowned on New Year's Day in 2016 while swimming near the Glenelg breakwater with three other children.
