Safe-T-Cam

Safe-T-Cam is a network of digital cameras that monitor the movement of heavy vehicles.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) are responsible for Safe-T-Cam in New South Wales and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure are responsible for Safe-T-Cam in South Australia.

Safe-T-Cam is used to detect:

  • vehicles that are unregistered and/or uninsured
  • fatigue offences relating to travel between two or more cameras
  • attempts to avoid detection at camera sites
  • failures to enter inspection stations.

Fatigue related offences detected by Safe-T-Cam cameras in South Australia are processed by the NHVR.

Safe-T-Cam cameras in New South Wales and South Australia and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras in Queensland, Victoria and other jurisdictions will provide a national set of heavy vehicle related compliance and monitoring data as part of the National Compliance Information System (NCIS).
