NSW mobile phone detection cameras now enforcing seatbelt use

As of this week, mobile phone detection cameras in NSW have begun enforcing seatbelt offences.

Following several months of testing, from July 1, existing mobile and stationary cameras across the NSW road network have begun snapping and fining drivers doing the wrong thing.

Fines of up to $410 and at least three demerit points will be issued to the driver if they or their passenger are caught by camera not wearing their seatbelt or not wearing it correctly.

Money raised by seatbelt cameras will go back into road safety.

Data shows 150 people died while not wearing a seatbelt in the five years between 2019 and 2023.

On average, 15 per cent of deaths on NSW roads every year still involve people not wearing a seatbelt.
