Fixed (permanent) and mobile (temporary) speed and red light cameras operate throughout South Australia at carefully selected locations. For information and the location of fixed and mobile cameras, please visit the Speed Camera website.
Mobile speed cameras operate from a vehicle mount or a tripod and are temporarily located on the road network to enforce speed limits. All mobile speed cameras are operated by the South Australia Police. For more information on mobile speed cameras, please visit the Speed Camera website.
Fixed speed and red light cameras are permanently installed on the road network to enforce speed limits and compliance with red traffic lights. All fixed cameras are managed by the South Australia Police and operate continuously 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. For more information on fixed speed and red light cameras, please visit the Speed Camera website.
Fixed cameras installed at signalised intersections enforce both speed and red light compliance. Controlling speed and red light running at intersections is critical as almost half of all serious casualty crashes in metropolitan areas and 21% in rural areas in South Australia, occur at intersections. In addition, between 10% and 30% of all crashes occurring at signalised intersections are a consequence of red light running.
Research from the University of Adelaide, Centre for Automotive Safety Research identified up to a 21% reduction in injury crashes at intersections where a fixed camera was installed. For more information on this study, please visit the Centre for Automotive Safety Research website.
Fixed cameras installed at signalised pedestrian activated crossings enforce both speed and red light compliance. Cameras installed at signalised pedestrian activated crossings near schools improve the safety of children at high-risk urban arterial pedestrian crossings, particularly on roads with a high volume of heavy vehicle traffic.
Fixed cameras installed at signalised rail level crossings enforce both speed and red light compliance. Safety at railway level crossings is an important and serious issue for road users, train passengers, train drivers and their crew.
Fixed cameras installed at a 'mid-block' location enforce speed only. Mid-block cameras are located at a point on a road between intersections.
Fixed cameras installed to create an average speed camera zone enforce point speed and average travel speed over distance. An average speed camera zone includes cameras at the start and end of the zone, and are used to measure the time taken by a vehicle to travel between two locations. This time over distance measurement is used to determine the average travelling speed of the vehicle across the whole length of road.
All remaining cars fitted with a critical defective Takata type airbag inflator will now be refused registration in South Australia from Monday, 10 August until they are rectified, to ensure the safety of all road users.
As the popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles grows, DPTI reminds potential traders and buyers of the requirement to fix a safety label onto their numberplates.
