$19m hot spots: The cameras catching out Qld drivers

The state's five worst camera hot spots for drivers speeding and running red lights have been revealed with an intersection at Loganholme taking out third place.

Nearly 20 million vehicles passed the fixed speed camera on the Pacific Motorway at Loganholme last year with fines issued to 16,006 drivers who failed to obey the road laws.

However, the worst place to cop a fine for speeding or red light running was at Broadbeach Waters where 28,522 infringement notices were issued for both offences at the intersection of Bermuda and Rudd streets.

More than 5.6 million cars drove through the fixed speed and red light camera at the intersection with fines amassing more than $5.98 million.

Even with signs alerting drivers to fixed speed and red light cameras, the state's second highest returning fixed camera site clocked up 19,363 fine from the intersection of Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Rd, MacKenzie, at the Gateway Motorway merge.

Drivers at Main St, Kangaroo Point, also failed to slow down and abide by the law with 15,236 fines issued after more than 6,560,611 cars drove past the fixed camera.

The mobile speed camera on the Bruce Highway at Burpengary East was the fifth highest scoring site for fines last year with 15,161 notices issued.

A police spokesman said the fixed cameras were at high-risk locations and all had signs alerting drivers to the cameras.

With the average speeding fine in Queensland $210, the total from the five camera sites was estimated at $19.8 million.

 

Police released the details of the five worst speeding and red light running spots in the lead up to the Easter long weekend starting on Good Friday on April 2.

There are more than 15 fixed speed camera locations across the southeast with 951,195 fines issued from the camera program in 2018-19 raking in a total of $191.6 million.

In 2017-18, the number of fines issued rose to 830,062 bringing in about $166.1 million.

That was up from the year before, in 2016-17, when 674,819 fines were issued to drivers from the camera program, drawing in $132.8 million.

There are also two point-to-point speed cameras on the Bruce Highway and 3000 mobile speed camera sites.

There are a further 21 combined red light and speed camera locations across Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

The current fine for those caught doing less than 13km/h over the speed limit is $177, which increases to $266 for drivers caught doing at least 13km/h over the limit but not more than 20km/h over.

More than 20km/h, but not more than 30km/h, will attract a $444 fine which rockets to $622

for more than 30km/h but less than 40km/h.

Those caught doing more than 40km/h over the speed limit cop a $1245 fine, eight points and a six-month suspension.
