​​The Camera Detected Offence Program is a road safety initiative aiming to reduce the road trauma on Queensland roads. It is a joint partnership program between the Department of Transport and Main Roads and the Queensland Police Service.

Speed and red light offences are recognised as life endangering and are a major cause of road accidents. Aside from the tragedy of road deaths, road crashes place a high cost on the community each year through hospital and health care costs, lost productivity in the workplace and the use of emergency services.

Speeding reduces reaction time and distance which increases the likelihood of road crashes involving other road users.

Background

The Queensland Police deploy Mobile, Portable and Fixed Speed and Red Light Photographic Detection Devices to detect prescribed offences and to improve road safety.

Types of Photographic Detection Devices

The QPS use various photographic detection devices throughout Queensland. These can be located in the ‘Traffic Regulation 1962, Sch 10’. Go to:
