 Hi folks, there was a useful discussion the other week about updating the
Australian tagging guideline on Safe-T-Cams. I've tried to integrate all
the points that were raised in the following text. I guess the broad
intention is to better differentiate between speed cameras and Safe-T-Cam
cameras in the guidelines. Thanks for a great discussion. All comments
welcome. Cheers Ian

Existing text:  highway=safe_t_cam   Use this tag to mark the position of
the NSW and SA Safe - T - Cam system

Suggested replacement (If approved, I suggest this be moved out of the
regional roads section and given it's own sub-heading given its relevance
to both urban and regional roads)

New sub-heading: Speed cameras and "Safe-T-Cam" cameras

Fixed speed cameras (including those that measure speed at a specific point
and those that measure average vehicle speed between two points) can be
tagged in one of two ways: (1) by using the tag highway=speed_camera, with
or without additional tags (such as maxspeed=*) as described here [
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dspeed_camera], and/or (2)
by using the tag relation:enforcement with additional tags, as described
here [https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:enforcement].

"Safe_T-Cam" cameras in New South Wales and South Australia monitor the
movement of heavy vehicles but do not monitor vehicle speed [
They can be mapped using (1) highway:hgv=fatigue_management_camera or (2)
enforcement:hgv=fatigue_management_camera, or perhaps both. Where an
installation includes both a speed camera and a Safe-T-Cam (if such a thing
exists), both sets of tags can be used.

Hope I haven't missed anything!
