NSW Government switches mobile phone detection cameras on

The NSW Government has announced it will switching their mobile phone detection cameras on beginning Sunday 1st of December in a bid to reduce the State’s road toll as we move closer towards the Holiday season.

Minister for Roads Mr. Andrew Constance said the world-first safety technology will target illegal mobile phone use by drivers through fixed and mobile trailer-mounted cameras.

For the first three months, drivers caught by a mobile phone detection camera will receive a warning letter. After that drivers will cop a $344 fine, or a $457 fine in a school zone, and five demerit points - 10 during double demerit periods.

Minister for Regional Roads Paul Toole said the program will progressively expand to perform an estimated 135 million vehicle checks on NSW roads each year by 2023.
