The general manager of Port Macquarie Taxi Service says safety remains the highest priority for its staff regardless of whether signage warning motorists of speed cameras is scrapped.
The comments come after NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance said he would support the removal of warning signage for speed cameras in the state.
It's a move which Minister Constance said is not about revenue raising but about saving lives.
Brett Dawson is the general manager of the Port Macquarie Taxi Service and said safety remains the upmost importance for any transport operation.
Mr Dawson said signage or no signage should not matter, as onus should fall on the professional driver to abide by all the right rules on the road.
He said speeding should not be part of the behaviour of any person who drives with a company as part of their employment.
NRMA spokesperson Peter Khoury said the organisation is supportive of all methods which help to crackdown on people who are doing the wrong thing, to help to keep motorists safe on the road.
Mr Khoury said the warning signs play an important educational roll, to let motorists know they should slow down, in areas which are known for being dangerous.
However he admits there is no 'silver bullet solution'.
He said statistics show about 80 per cent of road deaths in the state occur in remote or regional areas and majority of these deaths are not tourists.
Mr Khoury has called for an increase of police presence on regional highways and major roads, as he believes this will help to crackdown on a major factor in crashes - fatigue.
There has been no change to government policy on use of signage for speed cameras.
