Understanding safety camera photos

Static (fixed) and mobile speed cameras are designed to photograph vehicles, not drivers. It is the vehicle owner’s responsibility to identify who was driving at the time of the offence.

Static (fixed) speed camera photos often show more than one vehicle. The green oval indicates which vehicle’s speed is recorded. The blue circles and red arrows are for alignment purposes. The lane in which a vehicle is travelling is identified after the word “lane” in the data line. Lane “A” is always the nearest lane to the camera, with lanes further away labelled in alphabetical subsequent order. Note that Lane A may include part lanes. 

 

 

Mobile digital camera photos are identified by a 9 digit ICN number which always starts with the figure “6”. These cameras use a radar based speed detection system to measure vehicle speeds.

 

 

 

Red light camera photos are identified by a 9 digit ICN number which always starts with the figure “1”. Photos taken by a Red Light Camera often show more than one vehicle in the picture, but the Lane in which your vehicle was travelling is identified by a character which appears under the date on the date line. Line A is, the closest lane to the camera being monitored.
