Apart from the $60 Victims of Crime Levy, all funds collected through fines from speed and red light cameras (also known as safety cameras) are returned to road safety through the Community Road Safety Fund, which is administered by the Department of Treasury and Finance.
Funding is allocated to the Department of Infrastructure and Transport and SA Police for use towards improving road safety. This helps pay for a wide range of key road safety initiatives including education, engineering improvements and targeting enforcement programs where they are needed most to improve road safety for all road users.
SAPOL collects the Victims of Crime Levy through the expiation of offences. Expiation notices include a $60 Victims of Crimes Levy for notices issued by police or other authorised officers. Under the Victims of Crime Act 2001 the monies are paid into the Victims of Crime Fund operated by the Attorney-General’s Department.
