Mobile speed camera overturned parking and towing fines


After parked improperly and coming dangerously close to being tow-away, a mobile speed camera was forced to reverse all penalties.

Last Wednesday, the camera was set up in a makeshift clearway on Cabbage Tree Lane in Wollongong’s Fairy Meadow, roughly 80 kilometres south of Sydney.

A tow vehicle is seen pulling up to the camera in a video that has been circulated online while the sign stating “your speed has been checked” gradually lowers.

Transport for NSW said that the mobile camera operator left the area willingly after realising they were unlawfully parked.

According to deputy secretary Tara McCarthy of Nine News, “The driver relocated the car after they realised the temporary clearway was in place as part of the World Road Cycling Championships.”

The enforcement session has thus been ruled illegal, and penalties will not be applied.

In order to examine the situation, “Transport for NSW is working with the vendor.”

Several streets are blocked for the World Road Cycling Championships, which take place from September 18 through September 25, including Cabbage Tree Lane.

For the top women’s and men’s road events, the lane will be blocked on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from about 7 am to 6 pm.

Users of social media argue that speed camera operators shouldn’t be exempt from the law.

A Facebook user said, “Government revenue raising as usual. It’s shameful.

Another said, “How can they enforce the law when the operator couldn’t even read?”

Another responded: “Did the motorist get a fine for improper parking?”

Another person also advocated for the driver to get a fee for parking in a clearway: “The driver of the car should receive a fine, just as anybody else would.” Regardless of the car he was driving, he made the decision to leave it there and face the consequence.

You’re not above the law, said another.
