If your vehicle has been detected speeding by a speed camera, you will receive an infringement notice asking you to either pay a fine in 28 days, attend court or nominate a driver. If the vehicle is registered under two people, the person whose name appears first will receive the notice as the operator of the vehicle. Fines and other demerit points for speeding detected by cameras are the same as getting a speeding ticket.
