NSW speed camera backflip welcomed by NatRoads

Prominent warning signs for mobile speed cameras will be coming back in NSW

The National Road Transport Association (NatRoad) says common sense has prevailed in New South Wales with the state government deciding to restore prominent warning signs in the approaches to mobile speed cameras.

CEO Warren Clark says NatRoad has consistently called for the signs to return in the two years since they were removed.

This week’s news that the NSW state cabinet had reversed its previous decision vindicated that position.

“As we said back then, speed limit signage plays an important educational role,” Clark says.

“It reminds a driver to check their speed and slow down and reduces confusion. We took this stance when we faced a parliamentary inquiry.

“Driver education is fundamental to road safety, particularly the education of light vehicle drivers around heavy vehicles.

“NatRoad policy is that there should be a greater emphasis on warning signs that are suitably large and placed at decision points along freight routes.”
