Western Australian motorists need to be aware of a new type of speeding camera trap being introduced into the state.
The cameras, also known as point-to-point speed cameras or average speed cameras, automatically records the time a particular vehicle has taken to travel over a set distance. If that time is less than a preset amount – then the vehicle must have been speeding along part of that road.
