Mobile phone detection camera captures ‘horrifying number’ of violations

In only a fortnight, Queensland drivers have been snapped more than 1000 times by a lone camera with their hands on their mobile phones.

RACQ spokesperson Lauren Ritchie told Scott Emerson it’s a “horrifying number”, and was significantly higher than anticipated.

The lucky drivers will not incur fines for the violations, as the technology remains under trial.

“If they were being handed out … that’s a million dollars right there.

“That’s a lot of money that’s unnecessarily being handed away.”
