On 1 February 2021, SA Police discontinued a number of prosecution matters concerning speed camera offences relative to section 45C Road Traffic Act 1961 (South Eastern (SE) Freeway 60 km/h speed limit for bus and trucks) following a review of testing procedures.
These matters relate to the cameras located at Leawood Gardens on the down track of the SE Freeway which has ceased operation since 2 December 2020 due to roadworks.
SA Police maintain the cameras have been operating as per specifications with no issues relative to the technology of the cameras. The matters withdrawn are done so purely from a procedural process perspective and not regarding the capabilities of the cameras.
As a result SA Police are in the process of withdrawing current expiation notices that have not been finalised.
The cameras were installed in response to the Coroner’s recommendations to address the issues of speeding heavy vehicles descending down the South Eastern Freeway into the city where fatal crashes have occurred.
The cameras are expected to resume operation when roadworks are complete and new processes will be in place. Police will continue to conduct patrols and focus strongly on road safety on the SE Freeway.
