Re: Rustling Leaves Can Book You For Speeding!!!
Actually that's been around for a while, atleast in Victoria. A friend was pulling out of a house which is in between 2 speed humps, so he wasn't going that fast (the car is lowered, loud exhaust, typical commodore, ahwell :) ). However, the police car that happened to be cruising along the same road pulled him over.
There were 2 in the car, and one of them seemed to indicate the other was a bastard, anyway, the bastard cop said he was doing 75 in a 50 zone, which he could tell by the sound of his engine. My friend took them to court, because the FASTEST he could have gone between the 2 speed humps (from standing still) would have been 60 or 65, and then his suspension would have been shot as he hit a speed hump at excessive speeds.
Court reduced the fine to 10km/hr over the limit.... meaning they believed the cop was wrong in his estimation, but still believed my friend to be speeding (and therefore that he hit the speed hump at high speed.... wtf?).
So yeah, it's all BS, but the BS has existed for a while.
