Where The Queensland Police Are Cracking Down On Speeding
If you regularly use the Pacific Motorway, you'd be tempting fate if you decide to speed.
The Queensland Police have announced that 14 multipurpose road safety sites have been rolled out on the motorway in addition to road safety camera operations by speed camera vehicles and road safety camera trailers.
The 14 road safety camera trailers and Variable Message Sign trailers have been set up behind barriers both north and southbound between Beeleigh and Gaven.

"These sites enable police to safely target high-end speeding motorists in high-risk zones which are traditionally unsafe for officer deployment,” Assistant Commissioner Keating said.
“Operating road safety cameras at these sites will promote speed compliance to mitigate crashes and provide influence upon drivers using the Pacific Motorway to improve the traffic flow.
“Traditionally, many people set-off on their Christmas break on December 23, leading to a high volume of traffic on our road network and an increased risk of traffic collisions.
“Motorists can expect a saturation of speed enforcement activity right across the state with police targeting drivers putting themselves and all other road users at risk just before Christmas.”
The sites have also been installed to assist during the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
