Acusensus Managing Director Alexander Jannink Speak About Canberra’s Road Safety Cameras
Today, 3 November 2023, Acusensus Managing Director Alexander Jannink, along with Minister for Transport and City Services Chris Steel and Officer in Charge of ACT Road Policing, Acting Inspector Mark Richardson spoke to the media about the next phase of Canberra’s road safety cameras.
Three transportable road safety cameras were introduced on Canberra’s roads in February 2023, along with a fixed camera with a second fixed camera to be installed by the end of this year.
More than 39,000 Canberrans have been detected using a mobile device since the cameras were installed – about 150 people breaking the law every day.
Minister Steel said “Any time you take your eyes off the road you are risking your own life and the lives of other road users. Any activity that distracts a driver can result in higher speeds, lane deviations and delays in reaction time. We are asking motorists to leave their phone alone. Now is the time to change bad habits, put your phone down and prioritise getting yourself and all road users home safely”.
The goal of mobile device detection cameras on ACT roads is to increase road safety by utilising the latest in road safety technology to deter and detect unsafe driving. Acusensus supports the roll out of these detection cameras and is doing its part to support the ACT Government‘s commitment to ‘Vision Zero’ of no deaths or serious injuries on Canberra’s roads.
