EFFECTS OF ENFORCEMENT AND SUPPORTING PUBLICITY PROGRAMS IN VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

Since random breath testing (RBT) was introduced in Victoria in July 1976, there have been a number of evaluations of different methods, intensities and times of the enforcement operations. Speed cameras were first trialled in Victoria in 1985 and some studies of their localized effects on speeding were carried out. In December 1989, a new program was launched and the number of cameras was progressively increased to 54 during the next year. High-profile publicity to support the cameras was launched in April 1990. As well as evaluating the general effects of the program, studies have examined the mechanisms by which the effects are achieved, as well as localized effects around camera sites.
