Operational as of yesterday on the Smith St overpass northbound Not that it would bother me of course http://www.goldcoast.com.au/article/2013/01/03/444673_crime-and-court-news.html MOTORISTS can now potentially be caught speeding twice within 37km on the M1 following the installation of new speed cameras at Gaven. A row of five cameras has been installed on the reverse side of the Smith Street overpass at Gaven, recording the speed of every northbound car. Another bank of cameras, also hidden on the reverse side of an overpass, on the northbound lanes of the M1 at Logan has raised millions of dollars in revenue since going live in 2011. In their first 17 days of operation the Logan cameras nabbed 11,655 speedsters and provided a massive boost to the number of speeding offences detected. Police this afternoon advised the new cameras at Gaven would likely be operating by March. Once they are online unwary drivers could be caught speeding twice within 25 minutes. The Gaven cameras are in a 110km/h zone. The Logan ones are about 1km north of where the speed limit changes from 110km/h to 100km/h. Police statistics show fixed speed cameras in the South East District issued 10,351 tickets in the 2010-11 financial year compared with a massive 131,829 in 2011-12, the year the Logan cameras became operational. Police yesterday were unable to provide figures on how many speeding motorists had been detected but not fined by the Smith Street cameras during the trial period.
