Interesting fact, speed cameras are very common in NSW and you’re supposed to drive at or below the speed limit, unlike in North America, where we always drive 10-15 km over. Every time I was speeding in the “speed camera zone” my GPS would start beeping frantically with speed indicator flashing red, I couldn’t understand why! Now I know.
