Increased signage on mobile speed cameras

Additional warning signs will be introduced around all mobile speed cameras across NSW, to enhance driver awareness of enforcement.

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure said ensuring local roads are as safe as possible for both pedestrians and motorists was an absolute priority for the NSW Government.

“We have heard the community on this issue and from 1 January 2023, all mobile speed cameras deployed in NSW will have additional signage placed both before and after the camera,” Mr Coure said.

Minister for Metropolitan Roads Natalie Ward said the government had listened to the community on this important issue.

“Speed cameras play an important role in keeping commuters safe by reducing fatalities across our road network, including at high risk areas,” Mrs Ward said.

“These additional warning signs will help educate drivers in real time, giving them advanced warning to slow down at these high-risk points of our road network.”

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway said mobile speed cameras are about ensuring motorists are driving safely and to the speed limit.

“We have had a number of instances where mobile speed cameras have parked behind trees or poles, making it difficult for drivers to be alert to a mobile speed camera operating in the area,” Mr Farraway said.

“I want motorists to slow down, drive to the speed limit and get home to their families safely.

“Displaying warning signage on mobile speed cameras sends a message to motorists to slow down, potentially saving their life.
