Victorian Police Minister Tim Holding released a list of the 2593 locations where mobile speed cameras are used, saying it would show speed cameras were fixed in areas where there was a high incidence of speeding and accidents recorded, and not in “sneaky” locations designed to catch motorists unawares.

The Watchdog has extracted the 54 locations in our area and when you look at it, particularly in Wangaratta where there are multiple sites in Phillipson Street, Murdoch Road, Cribbes Street, Sisely Avenue, Tone Road and Williams Road, it does appear to be rather “sneaky”.

Assistant Police Commissioner (Traffic) Noel Ashby said publicising the location of speed cameras was an effective way of getting motorists to slow down. “Today’s release is another step where we can engage the public in terms of driving down the road toll.”, he said
