Random Road Watch (RRW) is a traffic policing program in operation in Queensland, Australia. It differs from conventional traffic policing in that an explicit resource management technique is used which randomly schedules low levels of police enforcement in a manner intended to provide long-term, widespread coverage of a road network and hence maximise road(More)
The electrophysiological and anatomical consequences of diurnal changes in screening pigment position were investigated in the apposition eye of the portunid crabScylla serrata. Intracellular recordings revealed that the acceptance angles of dark-adapted photoreceptors enlarged up to four-fold at night compared with photoreceptors dark-adapted in the day.(More)
In crabs, there is behavioural evidence for colour discrimination from the portunidCarcinus and severalUca species, but in the same and related species only a single visual pigment has been found in the rhabdoms by microspectrophotometry. Micro-electrode recordings of the spectral sensitivity of single portunid photoreceptors may throw some light on this(More)
Police traffic enforcement for the prevention of road crashes can be considered in two dimensions: technology and organisation. In recent years in Australia, there has been considerable development in technology, including breath testing apparatus and the speed camera. In parallel with such developments in technology , there are opportunities for further(More)
Electrophysiological determination of the spectral sensitivity of units from the retina, optic lobes and brain of the crabParagrapsus gaimardii revealed six major colour types. Single peaks occurred in the UV, blue-green, green and yellow, and further units showed either a broad-band sensitivity or double peaks in the violet and yellow. Many of the curves(More)
