Melbourne’s top earning speed camera locations revealed

The highest earning speed camera locations in Victoria have been revealed from between October and December last year.

More than 375,000 drivers were issued infringements from Victorian speed cameras, the fines totalling more than $108 million.

The camera collected just under $11 million and issued more than 30,000 fines across four lanes.

Lane three was responsible for more than 12,000 fines.

For 20 years, David Whitehead’s been an interstate truck driver, until he received seven speeding fines all issued from the same camera on the Western Ring Road

“My licence was suspended for four months and I had to use my annual leave to cover it,” he said.

Who gives way in this scenario?

Who should the red car give way to here?

Five of those fines fell between October and December last year, when speeds were reduced for roadworks.

But Whitehead believes he was recorded in a different area to the reduced limit.

“When it gets to that many, something’s wrong,” he said.

The Victorian Transport Association also questioned why limits remained reduced when workers weren’t on site

“We’re not quite sure that when the construction is finished that the cameras have been reset or they’ve been taken away if they’re temporary cameras,” VTA’s Peter Anderson said.

A camera at the intersection of Rosanna Road and Darebin Street in Heidelberg totalled more than $2.8 million in fines.

More than 6500 drivers were caught in St Kilda at Fitzroy Street and Lakeside Drive, costing close to $1.9 million.

The top mobile road safety camera was on Kensington Road between Dynon Road and Devon Street, where 3409 fines were issued.
