  • If you want to see how useless these cameras are, simply travel the freeway after dark and checkout all the brake lights as the traffic approaches the location... then enjoy the fumes as everyone puts their foot down 100m later.

    And boy, didn't they pick the most dangerous bits of freeway!

    Gosh, there's so many accidents on the Kwinana Freeway just next to the Pagoda Ballroom.
