Average Speed Safety Cameras
Cameras on Forrest Highway - live from 6 September 2017
The zone operates on Forrest Highway (between Mandurah & Bunbury) in both directions.
How does it work?
Let’s say a speeding driver is heading towards the Safety Camera Zone. Once the driver enters the zone, a camera will record an image of the vehicle. Another image will be taken when the vehicle exits the zone. These images measure the vehicle’s:
1) Entry speed
If the vehicle exceeds the posted speed limit at this point, a speeding infringement may be issued;
2) Exit speed
If the vehicle exceeds the posted speed limit at this point, a speeding infringement may be issued, and;
3) Average speed between the two cameras
If the vehicle’s average speed exceeds the posted speed limit, a speeding infringement may be issued.
If you are caught speeding in the zone, you will receive at least one infringement. However, a decision on enforcement will be made by WA Police based on the nature of the speeding offence.
Speeding increases the chances of a crash, as well as the likelihood of serious injury or death in a crash. Our research shows that speed cameras make drivers slow down, help reduce the road toll and lower the chances of having a crash. Average Speed Safety Cameras are another tool to help save lives and make WA roads safer.
