Camera Detected Offence Program
The Camera Detected Offence Program uses the following types of cameras:
We partner with the Queensland Police Service and use these types of cameras in Queensland to reduce road trauma. Visit road safety research reports to find out more.
Some cameras are permanent and operate 24 hours, 7 days a week, with other camera types operated at certain times. Both marked and unmarked vehicles are used—so if you speed, disobey a red light, use your mobile phone while driving or fail to wear a seatbelt, you could be caught anywhere, anytime.
The money collected from camera fines is used to run the Camera Detected Offence Program and to fund important road safety initiatives such as:
- road safety education and awareness programs
- road accident injury rehabilitation programs
- road funding to improve the safety of the sections of state-controlled roads where crashes happen most frequently.
How the funds are used is a requirement under the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995. Read more about the Camera Detected Offence Program financial overview in Appendix 4 of the Department of Transport and Main Roads Annual Report 2019-20.
