SPEED cameras will no longer be used just to nab speeding drivers - they will focus on unregistered drivers and uninsured vehicles under amendments passed through NSW Parliament.

NSW Transport and Roads Minister David Campbell said the same principle would apply to red light, safety, transit and toll cameras.

Number plates of vehicles caught committing an offence will be checked against Roads and Traffic Authority records.

The RTA estimated there were about 65,000 unregistered and uninsured vehicles on NSW roads.
