    Roadside Speed Cameras

    Are ALL roadside speed camers in Perth front and rear facing now? Just curious. :

    I'm not positive, but I don't think they are. I went past one a while ago and felt confident I didn't get flashed because even if it was rear facing, the angle wouldn't have got me... If they were rear facing I think it would have been on an angle that gets both directions. Interested to hear a more educated answer...

    The poliscan cameras were reputed to be able to do so but have never seen it done. There is a car set up that has a camera in the side window which takes a pic from behind - these are the only ones I'm aware of that do so.

    When they are set as rear facers obviously they're harder to see as they can be obscured to oncoming traffic so it's harder to gauge their frequency of use but there has to be an issue with having them rear facing because surely they would have that as the default - because they're both hidden and catches bikes.

    As stated...was a front facer on Garratt road bridge this morning...they are even using clapped out utes these days....looked like someone who had squeezed up onto the side of the road to do some fishing below the bridge.

    Majority aren't rear facing. But there are some, and as above they look to be squeezing cameras into the older style extend-cab Hilux (again?).

    One got me the other day - squeezed up against a property wall about 4 metres back from the road in a residential area! I'm pretty good at noticing them in advance but this thing took me by surprise. Lucky I had the dogs in the back of the van and was only doing 60 in a 50.

    I've been in Christchurch for the last three weeks and I haven't seen a single revenue cam...
    It's quite refreshing. 🤩

    Do you mean at the same time? The van mounted ones AFAIK are the only ones that can get the same vehicle back and front :unsure:
    Most of the cameras will do rear facing as well as front facing but only by virtue of going across lanes and getting one lane from the front and one from the rear ;)
    As Loud said I've also noticed a few in Hilux's rather than vans or purpose built back cabins :confused:

    They can get you across the road even over multiple lines. Ask how I know... So front facing up the hill on your side for example will get you from behind over the other side of the road going downhill, no problems. As long as there is clear line of sight.

    That's how I understood their functionality to be. I think I've seen one Poliscan on a median strip in the early days after their deployment but never since.
    Definitely not disputing your experience - I'm sure it happened but if you look at most of their placements, line of sight is for the most part, obscured to the other side of the road. Surely they'd double their revenue by ensuring they had clear line of sight both ways? Which makes me think there's an issue doing so (likely accuracy/reliability).

    Yeah. The one I rode past was one of those tripod mounted jobs sitting under a tree. Van (Hilux?) Was parked maybe 5-10 meters away. Van had a rear window but didn't seem to be aligned with the road. Was just wondering if the roadside units on tripods can snap rear plate as you ride past. I personally doubt it, but I'm no expert. Perhaps a second camera in the back of the van?

    The roadside ones can be set up to be rear facers also.

    Yes, correct for divided roads, like freeways or Marmion ave for example. ANY other road that has nothing but painted lines separating the two directions from one another are covered by the radar. The medium strip practice is still rife on Reid where the van/ute can be hidden behind the bushes, but that will only get you on one direction.

    Just making the most of things before the 30km/h limit comes in to force.

    Seems like 30km/hr has come into Melbourne.

    Congrats Australia, lets go more backwards.

    Got flashed by a front facer, thought oh shit, then realised they have no plate. Giggled.

    ^ Yeah, they'll just add your photo to their "unidentified riders" portfolio for future investigations/evidence linking later on instead
