Amend an act to exempt it quick?
The question is... why does the "Trade Metrology Act" apply to Sanral's Cameras?
In what sense are the cameras measuring equipment?

SANRAL cameras have to be able to measure the length and type of certain vehicles in order to calculate costs.
They also have to be able to accurately read and decipher license plates and spit out the numerical and alphabetical equivalent.

So yes, this act applies, and they cannot be exempted.

Wonder if the average speed ones popping up have been certified?

So if these camera are not certified then they have no legal proof of you passing that gantry? Unless you have an etag...lol.

ROFLMAO...!!! This mistake has saved me some bucks for Christmas, I like it.
As a matter of curiosity, could you please explain? Are you meaning that you're saving money by not paying your e-toll bill for this month, which would mean that you've been paying them the whole time up to now?

Reading the article it seems that the eTags also have to be certified under the NCRS. Even if it is not seen as a measurement device it should also be subject to certification IMHO.

ANPR's do make use of cameras and software to decode the image taken.

Software alone cannot do the job, it needs an image.
In sanrals mind where pigs command 747's

Its not a camera, its a optical recodnition system that relies on magic crystals and little fairies that tap vln into clay.....

Sanral are so deluded and lost they'll belive anything!
