Crash history data selects camera locations

20 people per day are caught speeding by more than 30km/h

Camera site locations are selected based on their crash history or assessed risk. Locations are ranked according to the number and severity of crashes within a 5 year period, using the most recent data available at the time of selection.

Crash history and assessed risk analysis is undertaken by the Department of Transport and Main Roads and provided to the Queensland Police Service to assess potential camera locations with consideration to health and safety risks for its officers as well as the camera system operating and technical requirements.

The following table highlights the number of crashes, the severity of the crashes and social costs of each type of camera.
