The volume of fixed speed cameras on the roads of Western Australia is set to increase six-fold over the next five years - from 5 to 30

Additionally, speed and red-light cameras on the state's intersections are set to triple. In a bid to reduce the death toll on the region's roads the State Government will increase speed and red-light cameras from the current 30 to 90.

It is reported that the 30 cameras already in place reduced crashes at those intersections by an average of 60 per cent.

The increase will bring Western Australia more in line with the volume of cameras in New South Wales and Victoria which have Australia's lowest road fatality rate.

Road Safety Minister Liza Harvey said she was annoyed by the "revenue-raising" argument adding that road crashes and trauma admissions cost approximately 200 hundred million Australian dollars a year which is more than the revenue collected from the camera fines.
