Trailer Speed Cameras are deployed in high-risk locations including high speed road corridors, road work areas and school zones.
In particular, Speed Camera Trailers provide a proven platform for police enforcement to be undertaken in areas that are not safe or practical to deploy a mobile speed camera vehicle for protracted periods of time. The Queensland Road Safety Action Plan has previously identified enhancing enforcement of speed limits at road works as a priority. Speed compliance at road work sites has been identified to improve worker safety. The Speed Camera Trailer solution may be deployed in remote areas and employ a security system and security cameras.

Red Light Cameras operate automatically, day and night. A red light camera is connected to traffic lights and is activated when a vehicle crosses the white stop line. The camera is programmed to take photographs of any vehicle travelling over the stop line or entering the intersection after the lights have turned red. The camera will not be triggered by vehicles crossing the stop line on yellow or green lights. Red light cameras are programmed to create a data block on, adjacent to or associated with each image. The data block may contain, but is not limited to the following information:Date when the image was taken;Time when the image was taken; and Number given in the ‘Traffic Camera Coding Manual’ for the location of the system’s camera when the image was taken. Red light camera sites are selected on the basis of: Crash history; Physical constraints; Geographical distribution. Intersections with the greatest frequency of crashes where motorists have run a red light are considered for a red light camera. The locations are selected using up to date crash data in the previous 5 years. Sites are then ranked according to crash number and severity and the highest ranking sites assessed by the Queensland Police Service.
Combined Red Light/Speed Cameras are located at traffic intersections.
They detect both failure to stop at a red light and speeding.
The speed detection part of the camera detects speeding on the red, yellow and green lights.
You can get a ticket for both offences if you are detected speeding and going through a red light.
