QCA dismisses challenge to speed camera infringement notice

The Court of Appeal in Queensland has recently considered the validity of section 114 of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 (Qld) (the Act) in Attorney-General for the State of Queensland v Morris & Anor [2015] QCA 112 (23 June 2015).

The question asked of the Court by a special case was:

Is s114 of the Act invalid on the ground that it infringes the principle identified in Kable v Director of Public Prosecutions (NSW) (1996) 189 CLR 51.

Section 114 of the Act deals with photographic detection devices in relation to traffic matters.

The Question was answered in the negative.
