Drivers who receive infringement notices in Victoria will soon be able access photos online for free.

In a bid to make the road safety camera program as transparent as possible, the Victorian Government says it is making it easy for those breaching the law to access evidence.

Drivers currently have to attend Civic Compliance Victoria to view the images for free or pay $7.50 for a copy to be mailed out.

Police minister Kim Wells says more than 17,000 people have paid for images in the last two years.

"This new system will deliver savings to any Victorian who wants to use the service," Wells says.

Images taken either by fixed or mobile road safety cameras relating to red light, speeding and unregistered vehicle infringement notices will be available online for six months from the date of breach.

The program will start in December.
