With camera-detected offences, a ticket will be issued to the registered owner of the vehicle involved. If the owner was not the driver, they have 28 days from receiving the ticket to provide a statutory declaration that advises who the actual driver was, or that despite reasonable control being exercised over the vehicle and reasonable enquiries being made, the owner is unable to say who the driver was. If no such step is taken within 28 days, then the owner is deemed to have been the driver (s 114 Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 (Qld)). If a summons then issues, the owner is not permitted to come to court and argue that they were not the driver unless they have already provided the statutory declaration within the 28-day time limit.
