The super spy, dubbed The Daddy, has four lenses and two flashes for total road coverage. Existing cameras typically have only one lens and leave some lanes uncovered, so some drivers escape fines. The new device's memory can store 60,000 images and sends them by broadband link to officials, speeding up fines. Special lights take infra-red close-ups of drivers' faces so they can't claim someone else was behind the wheel. A fourth lens takes video footage for back-up evidence. The Multi Camera System, made by Dutch company Gatsometer, comes mounted on a pole with giant spikes to deter vandals. The Australian distributor, Aspect Traffic, confirmed yesterday it had submitted the machine to Victorian authorities for approval and expected to get it within months. Aspect Traffic already supplies other speed cameras and recently won the contract to supply 21 overhead cameras for the Western Ring Road. Managing director Stephen Gateley said he had signed a contract to supply three of the monster Multi Camera Systems to another state, and expected the rest to follow. "A lot of cameras can't see across to the fourth lane, so speeding drivers get away with it," Mr Gateley said. He said the new device was more democratic, as it was unfair some errant drivers got away with speeding just because of a lane choice. The cameras are believed to cost more than $100,000 each, but collect much more revenue than conventional cameras. They can be set to either face or follow traffic. Auto Express editor David Johns said news of the machine would send shivers down the spine of every motorist.
