There’s plenty of dinner-table debate about the merits of speed cameras and whether or not they influence people’s driving or just rake in revenue for State governments. But Queensland’s decision to use these unmarked utes to photograph speeding drivers is likely to persuade many taxpayers that it’s more about the ching-ching than the saving of lives.

Kieran Campbell at the Sunshine Coast Daily reported at the end of October, three new undercover vehicles loaded with discreet speed cameras hit Queensland roads, and today tipster Dave send through pics of two utes loaded with the cameras. We don’t know if these are the same vehicles or not, but it seems like a fairly backwards way to try and convince people to slow down.

That said – don’t speed and you’ve got nothing to worry about…
