Just drove through the RNP yesterday

Recommended Posts

After the NSW Porsche Club breakfast out at Tea and Green's Cafe in Wilton, we decided to head back to Sydney via the Royal National Park.

10am Sunday morning 

  • 1x unmarked parked mobile speed camera (just before hitting Stanwell Tops car park)
  • 1x marked parked mobile speed camera
  • 2x highway patrol cars parked hidden in different spots on the road
  • 1x police bike parked in a fairly obvious spot near a turn-off
  • 1x police bike travelling along the road

Looks like there may be a funding crisis at the moment!

or perhaps they were just keeping the roads monitored so all road users are kept as safe as possible.

Nah .. it's not that.

Besides, they let you keep your licence, so they're obviously not too worried about keeping people safe ... :cool07:

I think you'll find they are.

Road user monitoring will occur more frequently on roads that are more frequently used and will typically be  monitored when the roads are actually in use. If one was to drive through there on a rainy Tuesday evening, you'd more than likely find it less monitored than a sunny Sunday morning.

I don't drive in the RNP. I think I've driven it twice in 35 years of driving. Tight corners or poor visibility along with poor surface conditions and idiot road users trying to break the land speed record don't make it a nice place to be. A lot like parts of the old Pacific Highway on the NSW central coast.

Far too late for a good clean run... 6am is about the right time! Or dusk & dawn during the weekdays is very good too!

No arguments there - but it was better  than coming back on the M4... :)
