Information – Hume Freeway (Amaroo Road, Craigieburn) – fixed digital road safety cameras
December 15 2017
On 28 November 2017 a member of the public called the Neil Mitchell program on radio 3AW stating that she had received a speeding fine on the Hume Freeway. She asserted a Facebook group had been formed and that there were group 255 members, all of whom had received speeding fines detected along the Hume Freeway at Amaroo Road, Craigieburn.
The caller said they all had been detected at the same speed, 108km/h. She said all of the affected drivers had already written to the office of the Road Safety Camera Commissioner about the speeding fines they had received, because they believed that they had been wrongly found to be travelling at 108km/h.
As at 12 December 2017 only 12 alleged infringing drivers had made contact with the office of the Road Safety Camera Commissioner. There was no reply to our requests for independent evidence from drivers, such access to driving record data, dash-cam footage, or GPS data logs.
The investigation into complaints raised about the camera system found no evidence of inappropriate infringements being issued by the fixed digital road safety cameras at Amaroo Road on Hume Freeway.
