    Default So. Australia budget to include lidar and cameras

    Apparently they are getting some new laser guns and redlight cameras with the new 2005/2006 budget.
    Here's the link, and here's the highlights.
    http://www.statebudget.sa.gov.au/bud...eech200506.pdf

    In an effort to combat excessive speeding which is the biggest cause of deaths and
    accidents on our roads we will introduce an extra 48 speed and red light cameras, at a
    capital cost of $9.5 million.
    Other road safety initiatives to be delivered include:
    $4.3 million to implement a package of measures aimed at curbing the incidence of
    driving under the influence of drugs;
    $3 million to expand the existing Rural Overtaking Lane program;
    $2.9 million for further rail safety-related upgrades at level crossings;
    $2.6 million for a heavy-vehicle compliance program; and
    $1.4 million to combat speeding on rural highways.
    In addition, 300 new breathalyser units, 37 hand-held laser guns for use in country areas and
    16 sets of road spikes will be purchased to reduce the incidence of speed- and alcohol-related
    trauma on our roads.

    Yeah, i need to go into the redlight camera business, at over $200,000.00 each.
