The black/white towers can contain either Jenoptik TraffiStar SR390 (MRCT) radar cams or TraffiStar S350 laser/lidar cams (similar to poliscan), and some contain both at the same time, i.e. you will get an MRCD/CT alert if your RD supports it, plus a laser alert.

Rumoured to possibly have a max range of 100m, but not confirmed anywhere, and can snap pictures in both directions.

Sorry had to correct my post as per quotes

ok interesting because I was probably a good 50 metres away when I was mucking around on Waze so I hope I didn’t get caught as it’s double demerit points this long weekend!!

Yes, you don't want to get snapped for speeding then the happy snap shows you touching your phone using Waze. Could be a big double whammy on double demerits weekend !

**** yeah and the thing was there’s a bloody bug on Waze where everytime you come close to a fixed speed cam it doesn’t notify you!! Just silently says speed cam 400 metres ahead?? Hope they fix the bug as I’ve reported it

I believe Waze only alerts audibly now when you're exceeding the speed limit

i had the same issiue with audible allerts but i think its more related to the stock radio that im using

for example once my ignition is turned on my phone conects to vehicle as normal .. The only allerts i will hear is incoming calls only all other allerts are silent

to get around this i have figured if im listening to music through my phone waze allerts nicely through the speakers ..if im listening to another device (radio) i then turn off bluetooth on the phone .doing this allows for then for the phone to allert

here is a vid of waze through my speakers as i was listening to music though the phone


here is another vid of having bluetooth turned off as i was listening to the radio

Hey Dean,
Is that siren and audible warning from the ALP? Does it JTK or is it just a receiver?

Interested in one and how it would perform in WA but from that video it looks like you're better off using waze as you get a way longer reaction time. Of course if its JTK then it won't matter...

hey mate
The ALP range varys depending on how the cameras is deployed and in this case most probly a 30 /40 degree angle

I hear allot of people rave on about waze

waze is is only as good as the information it receives from users ..and again in this case the camera was visable easy to spot even from far .

so you can only imagine how waze can fail as these cameras can be hidden very hard to find once mounted on a tripod tucked back into the shadows in the bush /scrub

+1 to that! Waze is a great tool though I often see Poliscans that are not marked on Waze. If they have only setup in the last half an hour there is a good chance it won't have been marked yet.

TraffiStar SR290, 390 & 590 are only speed cameras and red light apparently?

The TraffiStar SR350 didn’t flash and it has a flash unit in it, I take it if it didn’t flash then no speeding fine as the flash unit is used to recognise the number plate yeah?

I've never seen anyone get flashed by one of the black/white pole Jenoptik cams yet, although have done much less driving in the last year or so for obvious reasons.

Perhaps they don't need daytime flash, or they use IR flash rather than the red/orange visible flash that poliscan used?

Have you seen any mobile cams recently - seem to be much less now that more fixed cams have sprung up?

No haven’t seen any mobile cams…funny you mention an orange visible flash as I saw one the other day from the TraffiStar SR350 on Tonkin hwy as you go towards Great Eastern hwy the other day?
So maybe they do flash?
I’m starting to think the TraffiStar past Tonkin hwy Bunnings at the time the road works was showing 60KM/h in a 100KM/h zone was not setup, is this something that the police might be lazy with?
Or do they keep footage and then realise people were speeding at the time of the roadworks and then send out the infringements??

Always though about that.

Not sure if they can configure the PSL remotely, or need to send someone out. For short term speed restrictions, I think they don't bother changing them.

Long term works such as where you mention, you would have thought the PSL has been reduced?
