In QLD, how long does it usually take for a fine to arrive in the mail?
I am asking because the other day i was driving along the highway (100 zone) and i spot a cop car coming towards me with a camera/radar hanging on the drivers window. Anyway my natural reaction when seeing a cop car is to brake slightly, so i did. When i looked at the speedo it was reading approx. between 105 and 110. but it occurred to me later that i may have been doing slightly over 110 (10% leeway in qld). I am not that concerned because according to the qld transport website
Speeding - 45km or more over the speed limit 6 points $255
Speeding - 30km or more but less than 45km 4 points $180
Speeding - 15km or more but less than 30km 3 points $135
Speeding - less than 15km over the speed limit 1 point $90
So even if they did get me just over 110, i will only be 1 point and $90. I am on my P's and have lost no other points, so i still have 4 points to survive on.
But yeah, i was just curious as to how long it takes for a fine to arrive, so that after a period of time, i don't have to worry about it anymore.
Yeah, i wouldn't worry too much, i was doing 117 in a 100 zone with a pursuit car coming towards me with the radar on the roof. He had to pull a u turn to book me, so if they don't pull you over straight away you shouldn't have to worry.
But being a nice copper and me being polite, he dropped the recorded speed to 115 so it was in the 0-15kmh over bracket.
i wouldn't worry dude if they wanted to book you they would have pulled a u'y and booked you there and then !!!

Legislation specific in relation to enforcement procedure. Camera detected offences (red lights / speed) do not require the interception of the driver. Law deems that the registered owner is liable for the offence.
All other detected offences, parking matters excepted, would require positive identification of the offender thus requiring an interception at the time of the offence.
Does not exclude a follow up investigation to identify the offender by means of witnesses and admissions. IE a hit run traffic accident or a high speed pursuit may not be investigated for several months but a prosecution can be commenced.
I don't accept the argument that experienced drivers are unaware of the speed they are doing - nor do Magistrates!
