There’s been a change in Safe-T-Cam operations announced in NSW with operators no longer charged to access images of their vehicles captured by the camera system.
The move was announced after NatRoad advocated for the photo fees to be dropped.
NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has confirmed a new process for obtaining a copy of a heavy vehicle camera image and NatRoad say the system is now simpler and more transparent.
New RMS Safe-T-Cam Image Request Process:
- The process allows a person who has a lawful interest in obtaining the images to apply directly to RMS Enforcement Services Unit at no expense.
- Customers wishing to obtain these images can now find a Fact Sheet and the relevant form to access their images.
- RMS has now implemented an application form which will formalise the process.
- Complete forms should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for processing.
- Each application received will be reviewed and the camera image released at no fee (this does not apply to speeding offences, as these requests are currently managed by Revenue NSW).
- Information regarding the new process will also be provided on the Notice to Produce document itself with reference to the RMS website and related links.
“This is an example of how the authorities can support businesses and make aspects of the already complex legal process more accessible.” – NatRoad Compliance and Workplace Relations Adviser Richard Calver.
