Fault uncovered in camera detection program

Queensland’s Transport and Main Roads has commissioned an independent review into the Camera Detected Offence Program after a design fault was uncovered in the mobile phone and seatbelt camera system.

The fault has resulted in drivers having double demerit points incorrectly applied for a passenger seatbelt offence captured by the cameras between 1 November 2021 and 31 August 2023.

The fault was identified during an analysis of offences issued by the system and was immediately rectified. For a small number of Queenslanders, this has resulted in their licence being suspended incorrectly or drivers serving a “good driving behaviour period”.

Transport and Main Roads will be contacting all impacted drivers in the coming days and advises there will be a full and urgent independent review.
