Motorists have been asked to take part in the New South Wales Government's audit of its 172 speed and red light fixed cameras, launched earlier this month.

As part of the investigation, NSW Auditor-General Peter Achterstraat wants drivers to visit the state's Audit Office website to report cameras they believe should be looked at.

The audit is being carried out by Mr Achterstraat's office, in partnership with the Roads and Traffic Authority (itself in the middle of an overhaul) and a number of road safety specialists.

"I'll be looking at the facts and figures behind the 172 fixed speed cameras but in addition to that I want to dig a lot deeper in relation to the most controversial cameras," Mr Achterstraat told press this week.

He said that motorists have become concerned that the state's camera network "are just money-making machines."

"There are also a large number of people who highly value particular speed cameras and see them as very effective in having reduced traffic accidents," he added.
