More than 3000 North-West Coast motorists have been pinged for speeding by mobile speed cameras in the past 12 months, according to data from Tasmania Police.

Tasmania Police introduced new speed cameras in August last year, doubling the fleet from eight to 16.

The data showed 1823 drivers received infringement notices after being caught above the limit in the Burnie Municipality in the 12 months since the new cameras came into service.

More than 600 fewer were nabbed in the Devonport Municipality, with 1210 fines being issued, while 825 motorists in the Central Coast ran foul of the cameras over the same period.

Latrobe had the next highest at 985, followed by Waratah-Wynyard with 499, Circular Head with 101, Kentish with 96 and 77 drivers pinged on the West Coast.

The data didn’t include the Coast’s two fixed speed cameras on the Bass Highway at East Devonport and Wivenhoe, both situated inside 80 km/hr speed limited zones.
