speeding fine drama.

hey well little while ago last year.

got done for speeding up in swanview. 89 in a 50

coming out of a round about
sure cops sure

then xmas eve got done in byford doing 94 in a 60 zone. but they foolowed me 3 kms home befor booking me.
thing is they recon i went from the hwy to the railway line (where they got me going over it at 94 kph) which is a distance of 100 mtrs. how the **** is that possible in a bog stock eb2

im contesting the fine. very soon

just wondering what coments u guys have.

oh yeh is it like 0-100 in 9. something secs for an eb ?

the other thing is i have taken it over the drags and got bout 80 time slips saying i can only do 106 kms in 201 mtrs.

so how can i do 94 in 100 mtrs

would i be able to use that as evidence agaist my case?
same with like a print off from ford of the specks of an eb ie

Re: speeding fine drama.

I think if you take it to court and ask them to prove it.. and they can't prove it, then you can get off.

Re: speeding fine drama.

I'm assuming that there is some sort of stop sign or similar to force you to make a standing start ? (i.e. will the police contest that you started from zip ? ).

I would probably try and prove your performance point mathematically, before relying on drag times (while the drag times are good evidence imo, being cynical I would try and avoid forming any links with "dragging" or "Racing" in the magistrates mind if at all possible. It will only encourage belief that you are a "hoon" by nature or practice etc etc).

If you can confirm the standing start will not be contested, you should measure the actual distance you are contesting over properly (pace it out a few times, or borrow a measuring wheel), and also do some testing of the car (on a private strip of course - you don't want more trouble). A dyno result from your car might also be useful for demonstrating it is not modified or putting out unusual power for the model (heh, pick a hot day for the dyno :) ).

If your being straight up, and feel you have a legit cause to contest, I would go for it. I would however, suggest that it might be worthwhile getting some proper legal advice on it though (if nothing else it might give you more info on exactly what you need, or what to expect.

Re: speeding fine drama.

hey,
what he is tryin to say is like coz u were coming out of a corner that you wouldnt have had a standing start like what you would have had at calder or wherever;,
so like you can get more speed in less time.

so it is possible that they could have got you doing that,
but yea seek some legal advice first i rekon. to be on the safe side

Re: speeding fine drama.

Ask to see the log of the radar / laser gun and make sure it has been serviced and calobrated a month prior to you being nabed. Cos it use to be a monthly thing but now who knows. I know a few people got off due to the radar / laser gun not being serviced at its regular time, liked three months passed its service date.

Buy a good radar detector, mine has saved my ass on a number of occasions, and has payed for it self over a couple of times. Just don't get caught with it, in Vic it is a $500 fine a bye bye radar detector.

Re: speeding fine drama.

In NSW they are talking about beefing up the penalty for radar detectors . . . to 9 points . . . thats right 3/4 of your license in one hit . . .

With no public transport, there is a reasonable chance that you could put a case (and get it) for leniency (if you can't get off altogether), since it would cost your job etc. As far as I know its not uncommon for judges to let you keep your licence in these situations (but heaven help you if you get caught again!)

Re: speeding fine drama.

Unless you are looking to spend upto 2500 for a upgradable stealth radar detector.. dont buy anything

as 99% of radar detectors are detectable..

Go and take photos of area you where booked, get a copy of police reports, measure it up, and go see a solicitor
