Queensland road toll: Speed camera trailers to be used as part of Christmas Road Safety Campaign

New speed camera trailers being used by Queensland police.

SPEED camera trailers will be rolled out on Queensland roads from tomorrow as police ramp up their road safety blitz.

There have been 15 fatalities on Queensland roads since the start of the first phase of the road safety campaign on December 9 – triple the toll at this time last year.

The five new speed camera trailers will be managed remotely and used in high risk areas, where it is not safe or practical to deploy a police officer.

Commissioner Ian Stewart said excessive speed continues to account for one in four road fatalities.

“That is why speed management and enforcement remains a priority for police as we do everything we can to create a safer environment on our roads,” he said.

“The new trailers will enable police to target high-end speeding motorists in high-risk zones which are unsafe for officer deployment such as specific areas on motorways, at roadwork sites or in school zones.

“As this is a new type of technology, tolerance levels will be phased in, starting with considerable speed margins which will allow the public to become familiar with the new equipment.

“The trailers will not replace our current speed detection methods of high visibility patrols, mobile speed camera deployments or fixed camera systems.”

Queensland Police: Fast Facts

• 1 in 4 road fatalities involved a speeding driver (2015)

• 15 people have lost their lives on our roads during phase 1 of this year’s Christmas Road Safety Campaign compared with five fatalities during the same period last year.

• Police have intercepted more than 7350 speeding motorists since the start of the campaign (non speed-camera).

• In a 60km/hr speed zone, research shows that for every increase of 5km/hr above the limit, the risk of a serious crash doubles.

• Queensland’s 2016 road toll is 244, seven more fatalities than at this time last year.
