Dont stress Gramps the pills are STILL working, as ,yself and my better half are off to Italy and environs (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) in June I have been required to learn phrases that will come in useful over there, like this one, your guess without using a translator online as to what it is, (HINT: Lamborghini is a type of sausage)

What I really want to know is...does anyone have the GPS coords of the EIGHT (yes 8, 4 each way) Road safety camera's in the Geelong-Melbourne road?

Bitte und danke liebchen und kinder

They are kinda obvious....but that's because every one slows down for them!!! :))

I know of the two that I've seen, one at Millers Rd, and the one just south of Weribee, I think at the Little River exit or the Avalon??? can't be 100% sure now??
(there is one, each way, on the Westgate Bridge, too)

There may be some confusion as to the exact numbers of cameras, because some people include the Westgate Bridge camera, others don't!

I've never thought to waypoint them.....though I will next time I'm down that way!!
(I mean 'really' waypoint them, using the GPS.....I could quickly find the co-ords using Ozi, but only the Millers Rd and WGBr cameras will be 100% accurate!)

theres one between WGB and Millers too, its at the BACK of a set of big green signs, then two more past Millers towards Geelong, like Avalon/Little River TO's.

I reckon I can get them from Ozi too but would rather WPT them

Was ist das? Gees Bonz, it's been nearly 40 yrs since I had to play the sauerkraut :)

Now I've noticed you have omitted the 'aka the Vanquished' from your list of esteemed titles. Does this mean you have arisen and smote the eyes of your erstwhile enemies and assumed your rightful title of KS of TI ??? LOLOLOL

Still have a chuckle when I remember that collection of posts :))))

hahahaha home in the wild, wild west of Sin City or as I like to call it now, the big boys sand pit, with all the road construction going on.

We should be grateful to the NSW Govt (past and present) that we have such a crap road system. No chance of an 18 car pileup like in Qld recently. Plenty of time to stop when you're averaging less than 20ks an hour in peak time :(((((

One of those revenue raising vultures is only about 2km away so I'm very careful not to put the pedal to the metal near to home.

Geoff, somewhere on the web there's a site for misfits such as yourself. Lists all the cameras in Oz, includes a forum for chatting ec. I was looking at it the other day but didn't bookmark it as it doesn't suit old hilux drivers.

Its like this my good friend, I set the cruise on 101 on the GPS, all things are fine and then some nutbar slows down in front of me....I accelarate around him/her (unless its near a school and coffee shop in which case I am reliably informed it MUST BE A HER) to fit into the next lane of traffic only to go under a camera at 105............

I was only after a bit of a warning via a GPS track of WPT's. AT each WPT the GPS beeps saying turn ahead, I am almost convinced I can interpret that as Camera Ahead - Avoid Cappucino Drinker!

Meneer Bonz

Miskien sal dit beter wees as jy net Engels praat wanneer jy en jou vroutjie oorsee is.

Met verwysing na die spoed kameras, sal dit regtig ook beter wees as jy net so effens stadiger ry.

Bonz

A bit of Dutch, a bit of Malay, a bit of Indonesian, a bit of German, a bit of English and a host of other languages make up the Afrikaans language.

"Miskien sal dit beter wees as jy net Engels praat wanneer jy en jou vroutjie oorsee is."

Translation " Maybe it would be best to speak in English when you and your lovely wife travel overseas"

"Met verwysing na die spoed kameras, sal dit regtig ook beter wees as jy net so effens stadiger ry."

Translation " With reference to your enquiry regarding speed cameras maybe it would be better if you travelled at a slower speed"

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! ( Same in any language )

Groete/Greetings

Ahh yes metwigged it were afrikaans but there aint no online translaters for this complex language, and yes I understand the slowing down bit what niggles me is getting pinged under false pretenses. what I might have to do is tender GPS downloads as evidence of lawabidingness in all areas other than ping central.

cest la vie

hahahahahah same in afrikaans thanx mate

Hi Bonz,
Have a look here, GPSOz Speed Cameras

You can download files for all the popular GPS to cover Australia. Might take a few minutes to extract the exact ones you need.

At this stage I don't think you'll find the waypoints documented.
Use your 25k maps. I should do the run and mark them...too many cokes to do it now and going to cleanup wombat tomorrow.

Ray, I now have five locations and "proxomity"waypoints for htem so my GPS tells me 1 km away there is a camera, worked a treat coming home in the dark this week.

Thanx for your help mate, also loaded all the others but they are everywhere the GPS would go off like a frog in a sock of I downloaded all to the GPS, so I will just tootle along in "old Fart" mode, like I caught myself doing driving down to Geelong on Thursday for Maries mums funeral, tu tu doing 93 on the open road, no cars for miles......maybe I shound give Bonz (Vic) the bullet and call myself Gramps (Vic).

Safety Cameras to Spoed Kameras to Red light Cameras.

Hmmmmmm!

(1) Readers - if you aren't already aware, the originator of this thread travels this road at least 10 trillion times a year.

(2) He has at his disposal more GPS type gadgets, Widgets, software than all of us put together.

(3) He is also the resident Terang 'know-it-all' having graduated top in his class at the Terang College of everything and anything.

(4) The fact that he has exposed his short comings on this forum means he is desperate.

(5) Its a further indicator that he doesn't have his 'minder, P/A ,
Conscience Manager - Ms Imogen' in the vehicle with him.

So! please tell us WHY Bonz is it so, that you want to exceed the speed limit and negate Mr Bracks from collecting his rightfull revenue off od you you 'Bad, Bad Boy'.

PS

It has nothing to do with 'Mr Hat' sitting on 90kmp either, so don't dish that old hoary one up to the readers.

Lucy, My reasons are fair and above board. Being a recent (3 yrs ago) convert to the School of DLAOF (Driving like an Old Fart) of which you are somewhat acquainted I take unbrage that I may be called upon to contribute to the State coffers purely as a result of being lulled into a false sense of security.

The said camera's are not well known to me, although as you rightly speak, the road is, and each time I enamour myself to denote said locations I am swept under them with nary a second thought other than "Why are these doofus's slowing down here"

In my stage of advanced DLAOF my sense are not what they used to be. I do declare I am one step away from a hat on the parcel shelf and a "blankie" over my knees.

AND

if you were complying with the speed limit, then there would be no reason for the so called 'safety camera' to inform you in writing that you were

Inflagro Mentus Delectus (something like that)

of the OH&S safety standards that have been determined for that carriageway.

The speed limit is at best a notional agreement between the driver and the arm of the law that is interacting at said time with the driver. In this case the arm is a One Armed, One Eyed Bandit.

Hugous Toofastus Weecatchu (or some other greek philosopher)

It isnt fair.

Geoff there is a set on the Forsyth Road Hoppers Crossing over pass (One set facing each way Melb bound and Geelong Bound)

One set on the Ring Road overpass and the overhead sign nearby again the one on the Bridge facing Melb bound and the sign facing Geelong bound (I hope I got that right way around) at Brooklyn just on the Ring Road interchange.

The others are further done between Werribee and Geelong I can't tell you for sure which ones are where on that bit of road as I don't head that way all to often.

Hope this helps.

G'day Bonz,

just before they were activated, I was working in Queenscliff and driving down from Melbourne every few days. I noticed someone had painted a big orange "C" about 100m before the brdiges they were fitted to. One of them even had "Smile" painted on the road. Keep an eye out for the orange C's though, I would be interested to know if they are still there.

Thanx Wazza, All the orange C's have been blackened over with bituminous substances, but you can still see the black C's on the road, if you're looking, what I want to do is make proximity waypoints in the GPS so they warn me, being a forgetful old fart.
