All speed camera locations are established by SAPOL’s Traffic Intelligence Section.

Speed cameras are only deployed at locations assessed by Traffic Intelligence as having a road safety risk for that location or contributing to a road safety risk at another location.

In assessing the road safety risk’ for a location Traffic Intelligence will consider any or all of the following factors:

whether the location has a crash history;

whether the location contributes to crashes in other nearby locations;

whether the location has been identified by SAPOL Road Safety audits as having a road safety risk;

where intelligence reports provide information of dangerous driving practices associated with speeding especially speed dangerous;

whether the physical condition of a location creates a road safety risk. A hill is not regarded as a physical condition.
