From November 1, a new strict camera regime targeting rule breakers will be rolled out in Queensland, handing offenders hefty fines of up to $ 1,000 and potential double demerit point penalties.
“Motorists can expect the cameras to be located anywhere, anytime,” a spokesperson for Transport and Main Roads (TMR) told 9News.com.au.
Cell phone and landline detection cameras and seat belt detection cameras will be deployed in urban and regional areas of the state.
And if you do something wrong, the AI will catch you, the spokesperson warned.
The images will first be analyzed by AI software, designed to look for illegal cell phone use and to check if people are not wearing seat belts or are not wearing them correctly.
When a potential violation is detected, the image will be reviewed by an authorized TMR agent to make a final decision.
Drivers will face further fines and demerits for any front passenger not properly restrained.
If a violation is not detected, TMR will delete the images.
Which vehicles are allowed to drive on the T3 lanes at any time?
Last year there were 276 road fatalities in Queensland, an increase of 57 from 2019.
