Budget reliant on revenue from the Road SAfety Area

We have seen with the budget this week that around half the budget surpluses over the next four years are actually coming from the road safety area, with around $3 billion of Transport Accident Commission dividends being taken to prop up the budget, and we are seeing around $2 billion worth of speeding fines to prop up the budget over that period of time.

The minister has indicated that the rollout of those cameras are the responsibility for the police minister, not the road safety portfolio, so I ask the minister: given the budget is so reliant on revenue from the road safety area, can she provide an assurance that Treasury considerations are not outweighing road safety considerations in these decisions?
