WA to use new ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of cameras to catch ‘appalling’, dangerous driving behaviour

Drivers in and around Perth using mobile phones and not wearing seatbelts will be caught on camera over the next three months under a trial of new cutting-edge, Australia-first technology.

Six of the mobile point-to-point road safety cameras will be placed in pairs around the metropolitan area and within 200km of the city on regional roads, detecting average speed as well as spot speeds.

Road Safety Minister Paul Papalia said no fines would be issued under the trial but the details of anyone captured behaving particularly egregiously – not just drivers but also passengers – would be passed onto police for follow up.
