    The South Australian Government says the use of speed cameras mounted in wheelie bins will help improve the state's road safety.

    The state Budget makes provision for the new system.

    Acting Transport Minister Paul Holloway says police and Transport SA will begin trialling the wheelie bin cameras in locations where it is too dangerous to mount a speed camera in a car.

    Mr Holloway says the State Government's aim is to reduce the road toll.

    "We do have a particularly poor record [and] we were the worst of all the states when this Government came to office," he said.

    "We do need to continue to work and look, this new trial of putting a camera in a wheelie bin is just one way in which we can add to the armoury of police."
