Traffic, Canberra: 3 reviews and 2 photos

In most of Australia, revenue-hungry governments have distorted the genuine need for 'road safety' into a motherhood justification for hidden radar cameras. The ACT is no better than other places in this regard and hides radar-equipped vans, usually on wide safe roads, in places where they cannot be seen until too late. The back of the van is usually toward oncoming traffic, so the radar can operate from inside the van without being obvious. They also operate at night, so if you are startled by a bright flash in your eyes, have your wallet handy when the bill arrives some weeks later. This is one of the vans, doing a PR exercise at a car show. Note the 'helpful' sign on top.
