Over a million in a year

Big Money Speed Camera Near School Zone

If you head into Town from the northern suburbs you've probably gone past this speed camera.

One outside Blackfriars Priory School on Prospect Rd where it's 50km/hour is turning out to be a nice little earner for the State Government.

It's made $1.7 million in a year from 6,700 drivers.

That works out to about 14 drivers being caught every day!

It's the State's third ranked spot for fine revenue, behind two on the South Eastern Freeway.

The RAA is concerned changing speed limits in the area is confusing and that motorists aren't putting enough importance on checking signs.

They want a safety camera commissioner to investigate trouble spots like this one.
