Calls for QLD speed camera warnings

Calls for QLD speed camera warnings

In use for just over a week - nearly 6,000 motorists have been caught by the state’s newest speed camera during its first week of operation, sparking calls for better signage.

Today, motoring group RACQ urged the Queensland Government to install more warning signs on the M1 at Loganholme after claiming the cameras weren't clearly visable for motorists.

Figures released by the Queensland Police Service showed 5922 motorists had been detected exceeding the 100km/h speed limit since the cameras were switched on last Tuesday - averaging 737 fines per day.

John Wikman from the RACQ highlighted that ''in this busy traffic environment, it could be quite easy for a motorist to miss a single warning sign on either side of the motorway''.

Police have refused to comment on the feedback regarding the signage.
