A MOBILE speed camera will soon be on its way to a troublesome intersection in North Tamworth.

Councillors endorsed the move to apply for a speed camera to patrol the intersection of Hyman and Johnston streets in response to a bevy of community concern.

Acting manager of road infrastructure Jeremy Bartlett said the unit would act as a general deterrent for hoons.

“Their operation creates a general deterrence against speeding, leading to a crash reduction across the whole road network,” he said.

It’s not yet known when the speed camera will make its way to the intersection with The Centre for Road Safety coordinating the movements of their available camera units. Same as any other speed camera, fines will be issued to speedsters by Transport for NSW.

“A fine is issued by Transport for NSW and posted to the address of the registered owner of the vehicle,” Mr Bartlett said.

“This is the same process used by Transport for NSW for all speed camera or red light camera fines that are issued.”
