Detecting 41 unregistered vehicles, 167 speeders, four drink drivers, marked a “standard” Easter long weekend on the roads for ACT Policing.
Over 2020 the ACT’s mobile speed cameras recorded 26,666 infringements across Canberra that brought in just under $9.5 million.
The operation came just two weeks after local law enforcement revealed they had already handed out more speeding fines in 2020 than the total number issued in 2019.
ACT Road Policing issued 183 Traffic Infringement Notices over the October long weekend, including 106 motorists detected for speeding.
Earlier this month fourteen impaired drivers were caught in one night, despite year-on-year drink and drug driving charges remaining steady.
A 24-year-old Kambah man has been fined after he was detected riding a motorcycle at more than 40km/h over the speed limit in a bicycle lane.
A 22-year-old Jerrabomberra man has been arrested after doing 90km/h over the speed limit and returning a positive roadside drug test.
