More than double the number of speeding fines were recorded by the fixed camera at East Devonport in 2020 than any other in the state.
Police handed out 1907 fines due to speeding on the section of the Bass Highway compared to 849 on the Brooker Highway at Rosetta, which recorded the second highest number of fines.
Sergeant James Scicluna said the high rate of tickets served as an important reminder that it was a speed limit, not a challenge.

"The Bass Highway at Victoria Bridge is a main thoroughfare and with the Spirit there is more traffic going through that zone," Sgt Scicluna said. "We would like to see people be educated of the speed limit there and to slow down. That speed camera is sign posted so we would love to see no tickets."
Sgt Scicluna rejected the suggestion it was a revenue raising exercise.
"It boils down to the fact if people weren't speeding they wouldn't be getting a ticket. It is not hidden away or secretive, it is sign posted," he said.
"In terms of revenue raising that is what people are going to say, but if people aren't speeding they won't have anything to worry about."
RACT Chief Member Experience Officer Stacey Pennicott said the number of speeding fines from permanent speed cameras was "concerning".
"RACT believes that fixed speed cameras with warning signs and education around the dangers of speeding are all effective in addressing this issue on Tasmanian roads. However, we still need to collectively rethink how road safety outcomes can be improved in Tasmania in order to save lives."
