Locations of new P 2 P speed cameras in Qld

Drive for traffic revenue escalated by a broke ALP State Government

The second round of public surveillance will soon be deployed by Queensland Police in the South East of the State when point to point speed cameras are rolled out later this year.

The Labor State Government has called tenders for the Point to Point (P2P) Average Speed Camera System to be installed in the South East region.

All vehicles including trucks will be monitored for an average speed between points.

GPS monitoring will be used to define both geographic points to calculate the speed of the vehicle between the points.

P 2 P cameras will soon be collecting millions going to consolidated revenue for the Labor State Government under the guise of ‘road safety’.

Any speed detections will be sent in real time from the equipment to police and The Main Roads department computer data bank.

This is the first time such surveillance methods have been used in Queensland. The Labor Party has outdone the Liberals in transgressing the privacy of motorists who will have to dig much deeper into their pockets to fund the largesse of the Queensland ALP.

Cairns News received from a trucking industry source the locations where the P2P cameras will be installed.

Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey’s spin

The Camera Detected Offence Program (CDOP) is a key road safety element of the Queensland Speed Management Strategy and the National and Queensland Road Safety Action Plans. CDOP is managed jointly by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and the Queensland Police Service (QPS). The Traffic Camera Office (TCO) manages CDOP activities on behalf of the QPS.

Mr Bailey will be safe from the predatory cameras – he doesn’t drive a car.
