Yes they do, only in NSW are point to point speed cameras used to check heavy vehicles only. Point to point speed cameras use number plate recognition technology. The technology uses optical character recognition software to locate and read number plates from dedicated Infra Red cameras. The cameras are aimed at the numberplate region on the back of vehicles and are triggered by vehicles passing over a loop detector, similar to those used with the fixed speed and red light cameras. The cameras measure the amount of time it takes a vehicle to drive between two points and then calculates the average speed of the vehicle. If the vehicle’s average speed is higher than the speed limit for the length of road, the driver will be booked for speeding.
