Speed cameras will go
Both speed cameras on the Peninsula will be removed by the NSW Government, having been found to be ineffective.
They were identified as among 38 locations where cameras had not reduced crash numbers.
The cameras in Blackwall Rd and in Ocean Beach Rd, Woy Woy, have raised more than more than $2 million in fines in the last seven years.
In the last financial year, they raised more than $200,000.
The Blackwall Rd camera raised $113,702 and the Ocean Beach Rd camera raised $98,572, a total of $212,274 from July 2010 to June 2011.
Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein said: "As promised, where cameras provide no road safety benefit, we will remove them.
"We want to make sure cameras are there for road safety, not as revenue raisers.
"For some camera locations, the number of crashes did not drop, so we need to be looking at other measures for these sites.
"This could include alternative treatments such as road safety upgrades at these locations."
Mr Holstein said a report by the Auditor-General released on Friday, July 29, found the majority of fixed speed cameras had a proven road safety benefit and contributed to a fall in fatality and injury rates.
"While this is encouraging, the audit also found that 38 of the existing 141 fixed speed camera locations had not reduced crashes.
"There has been community concern that some cameras are purely revenue raisers and this audit has allowed us to identify them and ensure they are removed," he said.
