Speed Camera Detections Note for 2018/19 data: 1. Data is extracted from camera databases within the Queensland Police Service (Traffic Camera Office). These systems are live databases and the reported statistics may vary on a daily basis. 2. Detections from road safety cameras do not necessarily result in the issuing of an infringement notice. Detections from cameras are adjudicated by an accredited Traffic Camera Office staff member or filtered through system business rules. The adjudication process assesses whether there is sufficient evidence to meet legal requirements to issue an infringement notice. Detections include images and associated data files used for testing camera systems during scheduled maintenance periods and normal operation. Differences observed between detections and notices issued will be the result of camera testing and adjudication processes.3. Data for some cameras is not downloaded on a daily basis. It may take at least 72 hours for all data to be available.4. Figures include data for mobile speed cameras (overt, covert & portable), analogue fixed speed cameras, digital fixed speed cameras, digital combined speed/red light cameras and the average speed camera system.
