 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 9 September 2020

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 Australia Post was reported as having recorded its busiest delivery day on September 1.  It is reported that more than 2.5 million parcels and letters were dropped off nationwide.  The service is experiencing a struggle to keep up with demand and is challenged with delays, particularly due to COVID-19 associated restrictions.  Good on our posties and all postal workers, we appreciate the work presently being carried out under extenuating circumstances.

As an ongoing frustrating problem and one that is tabled at the Traffic & Safety Advisory Committee (TSAC) Meetings, I am relieved to learn, along with our impacted residents, that Police will have new high-tech cameras, including an expanded fleet of drones to crackdown on hoons.  The new technology will add to the existing network of thousands of traffic cameras across the state.  The assault on hooning will make it much easier for police to catch hoons and to take strong action against them.  Police will have high-tech night vision capable cameras that can be deployed secretly, operated by an officer, or deployed on a drone.  I do believe that honing is an increasing problem for many areas.

These tough new tactics will complement the already harshest hoon penalties in the nation and will add to the arsenal of enforcement measures already being used by police to target hooning on Queensland’s roads:

Intelligence-driven enforcement with covert patrols; Monitoring of all forms of social media to take swift action; Hoon Hotline 13HOON; High-visibility patrols; Dedicated Road Policing officers; POLAIR aerial surveillance; Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology; Road safety camera trailers; Thousands of traffic cameras across the state and Police drone fleet.
