The rear facing mobile speed camera is the first mobile speed camera capable of capturing the rear number plate of motorcycles exceeding the speed limit.

Until now, only red light-speed and fixed speed cameras had the capability to issue infringements to speeding motorcyclists.

These new cameras are fitted to vehicles which can be parked on the side of a road and allow a vehicle’s speed to be read from the front, while the vehicle is photographed from behind.

To 28 December 2017, 25 motorcyclists had been killed on WA roads, with speed found to be a factor in 38% of those fatalities.
