Fools

In less than 20 minutes of the new penalties for speeding in queensland go in and 3 peopl have been busted doing 40Km's over the limit on the motorway at Mt Gravatt.

With the new penalties, these guys will all lose the licenses for 6 months and cop a $700 fine...

I know the views held on the site about the cameras and stuff,( i got my own personalised photo of me on a flat stretch of dual carriageway doing 111kms)...but how stupid are those guys...

Exactly. Whether you agree with the laws or not, speeding on the M1 at anytime is asking to have your wallet raided. To speed like that on an Easter long weekend is unbelieveable

Chaps - how do you know this?

I agree, they are pretty stupid though. And dangerous. Speed cameras are there to save our lives (read sarcasm), and this just proves the point - 3 very dangerous drivers will be off our roads for 6 months. I'll bet they were overtaking a volvo driver who was hoggin the right hand lane. LOL.
