Court laws for speeding changed by VIC govt!
My brother went to court the other day over a speeding fine, (he lost his licence), the Judge understood his problem (wife in hospital, clear beautiful day on country road) and would have helped him out by giving him a reduced penalty, or letting him drive to work for example, however he said something like this : "a few months ago the court lost the ability to make amendments to suspensions of speeding drivers. There is now nothing I can do, even though i would like to, as the Govt has changed the law." He said the only thing he can do is to let my brother find a reason that the radar/laser was incorrect, then the whole fine/ suspension would be thrown out. He told my bro to plead Not Guilty at this stage to get further legal advice, but that to do that and win would cost many thousands to test the speed detecting gear. The judge would happily throw out the case then though.... Sadly my bro couldnt afford it so said 'guilty'.
Brax has even changed the courts powers!!!!
This annoys me and everyone i know no end!!!
What this means is that there is no leniency in the court anymore. There is no leniency at all, unless the cop in the 1st place gives you some.
Thanks for nothing Brax!!
lets get sideways!!!
