a truck that has a sign on the side of a road: Mobile speed camera enforcement also offers a general deterrence to speeding.© Jane Dyson Mobile speed camera enforcement also offers a general deterrence to speeding. The Transport Minister, Andrew Constance, has confirmed the government is considering removing warning signs that are currently installed in advance of fixed and mobile speed camera locations. This move, the minister says, "is about saving lives".

This is the type of action the Australasian College of Road Safety can, and does, support because the effect of warning signs in advance of speed camera sites is clear – drivers moderate their speed while passing the camera and then speed up when they are clear of the enforcement zone.

The reason why some parents prefer home schooling is that they are not satisfied with the schools which in their area. You hear a pop song on the radio— or just read the song's title — and it haunts you for much hours, playing over and over in your mind until not you're heartily sick of it.

For road safety, this is not the desired effect of a speed camera enforcement program.

At the core of the NSW Road Safety Plan 2021 is the reduction of death and serious injury on our roads, with a vision of zero road trauma by 2056. This is possible, but if there is to be any chance of achieving this goal, it is imperative that NSW adopt world’s best practice across all areas of road safety action, and this includes the management of speed on our roads.

Called the "halo effect", the presence of a speed camera – whether a fixed or mobile set-up – has been shown through research and evaluation to have a positive road safety outcome.

But it is, in the main, only a local effect, and this is not enough to see NSW move towards zero death and serious injury on our roads.

Fixed and mobile speed camera enforcement offer different approaches to the road safety problem associated with speeding.

While fixed speed cameras provide a site specific solution, targeting identified speed-related crash risks, mobile speed cameras serve a dual purpose; like fixed cameras, mobile cameras can and do address local crash risk, but experience in other Australian states, and overseas, shows that when used appropriately, mobile speed camera enforcement also offers a general deterrence to speeding across the network, even at locations where they may not actually be used.

The old adage of being caught speeding "anywhere, anytime" is only true if mobile speed camera enforcement is not signposted ahead of time.

A review of speed enforcement practice in other Australian states, and leading road safety performing nations around the world, identifies NSW as the only jurisdiction that signals the presence of its mobile speed camera vehicles in advance of the camera location.

With 250 metre notice ahead of a speed camera site, is it any wonder that compliance rates greater than 99 per cent occur? And yet, experience shows that motorists continue to speed elsewhere with hundreds of thousands of speed infringement notices issued each year.

The road toll in NSW continues to increase. This year, so far, 312 people have not come home after a day on the road. This is 14 people more than the same time last year.

Advanced signposting of speed camera locations has been the practice in NSW since 2010. If we are to be effective in saving people’s lives, it is time that we try something different.

In this, the minister is perhaps on the right path by considering the removal of signs in advance of speed camera sites, particularly mobile cameras, as these signs really only serve to undermine the benefit of a speed camera program.
