Cameras reduce trauma on NSW roads

The NSW Automated Enforcement Strategy for road safety (PDF, 605KB) is the overarching framework outlining how automated enforcement programs are managed in NSW.

Enforcement cameras are proven to reduce road trauma and are used in all national and leading international jurisdictions.

The strategy builds on the success of the previous NSW Speed Camera Strategy and current NSW automated enforcement programs, including the world-first Mobile Phone Detection Camera Program introduced in 2020.

The strategy outlines five key action areas:

  • Automated enforcement solutions
  • Enforcement locations
  • Communication and education
  • Ensuring fair enforcement
  • Research and evaluation.

The strategy is a key component in the NSW Government’s 2026 Road Safety Action Plan to achieve the long-term goal of zero road deaths and serious injuries by 2050.
