In 2017, speed was a contributing factor in 25% of fatal crashes in South Australia. Even where driving over the speed limit does not directly cause the crash, the severity of the resulting injury is directly linked to the impact speed. (For details on this and Speed Management Research and Speed Crash Diagram)

The Department for Transport, Planning and Infrastructure uses specific criteria for selecting the locations of fixed safety cameras

We also want to know if you think this criteria is adequate and if there is anything else you believe should be considered when selecting locations. (You can see the exact camera locations on the map below and listed in suburbs in the survey)

Your comments and suggestions will be considered as part of the review process and will help influence the future safety camera program for South Australia.

The questions should take around 5 minutes to complete.

Background


The South Australian Government’s 100 Day Plan includes a commitment to conduct a speed camera audit. An audit of fixed safety cameras is underway to ensure they are operating for safety purposes and not to raise revenue.

An independent road safety consultant working with the University of Adelaide Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR) is reviewing South Australia’s overall fixed safety camera program and will produce a report with recommendations for any improvements that would enhance road safety.

The review group will also work with key road safety stakeholders such as SA Police, the Motor Accident Commission and the RAA to ensure there is a shared vision of speed management for South Australia. Their report will also provide advice on proposed locations for the next 10 cameras and examine the protocols and processes used by SA Police to identify the deployment of mobile safety cameras.

The report will be available to the public.
