Speed, red light and bus lane cameras are used throughout NSW and operated by the Roads and Maritime Service. If you are issued with a fine or have a lawful interest in the offence you can view the camera image online.
If you weren’t driving at the time of the offence, you can name the person that committed the offence.
You can also request a review of your fine if you think there’s been a mistake.
If you’re named on the penalty notice and responsible for paying the fine, you can view the photo of your offence online. You can also request to see the photo if you have a lawful interest.

Copies of photos are not accepted as evidence in court.
There are several types of camera that may capture a driving, parking or traffic offence.
|Speed||Accurately measure how fast a vehicle is going. They use electronic sensors in the road and radars to monitor multiple lanes of traffic.|
|Red-light speed||Detect when a vehicle is over the stop line when the traffic light is red. One photo is taken of the licence plate and a second photo is taken to make sure the vehicle continued into the intersection. These are both red-light and speed cameras.|
|Safe-T-Cams||Heavy vehicle fatigue, registration and safety station entry monitoring.|
|T-way lane||Installed beside the lane and record three images of any unauthorised vehicle using a T-way lane.|
|Bus lane||Detect unauthorised vehicles in a bus zone, by using two cameras to read number plates.|
|Average speed||Measure how long a vehicle takes to travel between two points. An offence occurs when the average speed is above speed limit.|
You have the right to request leniency.
Generally, we won’t consider leniency for certain offences where safety is an issue. These include:
Penalty notices for camera detected offences are sent to the registered owner of the vehicle, not necessarily the person who committed the offence.
If you were not in charge of your vehicle when the offence took place, you’re required to transfer the offence to the person responsible.
When the fine is paid Revenue NSW notifies Roads and Maritime Services to apply the appropriate number of demerit points to the person named on the penalty notice.
During the process, we follow strict privacy regulations to keep personal information secure.
