Its got impact, and would certainly make people stop and think. It's already got a photo posted here and people talking about it, so its working. It's a cheap exercise, covering a car they already have in some cheap stickers. If it saves one life it's well worth it.

I agree, it is a cheap exercise, for the amount of revenue it will return.

If I seriously believed for one second that it was all about saving lives and not at all about raising revenue, I wouldn't be commenting here!

If you believe their brain washing then good for you - it obviously is having an effect ;)

If it was an unmarked camera car parked on the side of the road I'd agree with you. Any one who doesn't see that coming and still gets a ticket doesn't deserve to hold a license.
They hide the car people whinge its revenue raising (and it is) they make it highly visible people whinge it's revenue raising.

For a start, the number plate says Fatal 2 and it says Fatal 4 on the car, I mean don't get me wrong, the XR6 Turbo is one of the good falcon's (Dropped XR8) But they have got it all wrong, Speed is not a killer, slow drivers kill more people on the roads, for eg. the speed limit is 80 and bloody sunday drivers are doing 65, really pisses you off, once we were heading up to Echuca, some idiots in there Camry are doing 75KMPH in a 100 zone, we had a trailer on and everything in our 4X4 and we over took him nearly went head on with an XR6 and this dickhead started to speed up when we were over taking, It really pee's you off these sunday drivers should be banned, they get you angry then u make mistakes and crash, and im pretty sure the Police need to smarten up there act and think fourth dimensionaly.

there are 4 cars on the road regos are FATAL1-2-3&4 , all speed limits are just that, upper limits, you are not obliged to maintain them but you must consider other drivers and pull over if you wish to cruise along, otherwise you are guilty of impedeing others progress , getting mad will not stop the problem or give you any advantage if it goes wrong and you end up in the courts.

It's revenue raising whichever way you look at it!!

If our dear caring politicians had real concerns for our well being, they would start with educating new drivers and continuing with education upgrades with older drivers.

They would be spending a lot more money back into the road infrastructure, upkeep and upgrades.

I could waffle on for the next page or so about what they could or should be doing, but no, what do they do, aim straight for our wallets!

As if things aren't tight enough, they want to flex their muscle at anyone who even looks like they might go over the speed limit, because "it's in the interests of public safety" and they can get away with it!

SPEED DOES NOT KILL!! It's who is behind the wheel that kills! Be it an inexperienced young driver (or an ill experienced older driver for that matter), It's our poor road conditions, it's drivers like in the above example (especially noticable if you drive a truck), and the idiots who think it's their right to sit beside other traffic in right hand lanes.

It may not sound like it, but I do have respect for our coppers, I have mates who are coppers and a lot of the times they have a bloody tough job to do, but when it comes to this issue of speed and revenue raising, I wouldn't p!ss on them if they were on fire.

It's not the coppers on the front line who are at fault either, it's much higher up and into the pollies who pass these stupid laws, to pressure the men and women on the ground into acting as collection agents for them. I do however believe that some of the coppers on the front line have been brainwashed into believing half of this crap themselves.

If it was as simple as "SPEED KILLS" then we could ban motor racing and absolutely everything that involves speed.

While speed can contribute to death in an incident, you can also quite easily be killed at 60kp/h or even less, depending on the situation.

So carrying on with speed kills and everyone needs to slow down is a crock of crap - fixing the problems on our roads is a far more complex issue!

I agree, the money isn't getting spent where it should, it's being squandered keeping the greens and other minorities happy. Maybe we should spend X billion on a national road network.
Its people like the above comment who really don't deserve to hold a license, ask him, he'll tell you he's a great driver. Just lucky he didn't kill a few families with his stupid driving. What can you do to get through to people like that?
