New speed camera figures show an 80-per-cent increase in fines issued in some parts of Victoria.
The figures obtained by the Opposition show motorists were booked more than 155,000 times in the last three months of 2009.
The Opposition’s roads spokesman, Terry Mulder, says the figures were forecast in last year’s state budget.
He says they show blatant revenue raising tactics, and the Premier, John Brumby, must explain.
“John Brumby’s budget in 08, 09, shows $397 million in speeding fines, then they predict in 09, 010, for it to jump to $437 million,” he said.
“Some parts of the state, Mornington Peninsula, Frankston, have jumped up by over 80 per cent.”
