Does'nt like the fact that someone called it revenue raising.
Good on the RACV guy now if only more ppl have a say,then maybe something will be done.

Wonder how many school-kids he skittled at that appalling speed? Oh wait, that only happens on the TAC TV ads...

At least if Batchelor keeps getting pinged, the posted limits might change for the better!

Scum, absolute scum
I hope the CEO of the RACV takes the official complaint Bachelor is initiating and uses it to challenge the government to a public debate over the communities views of their pathetic revenue raising.
Go the RACV!

WRONG . You better go and watch one of the TV ads.
You were speeding , therefor you were driving dangerously , otherwise there would be no fine attached .
REMEMBER ...SPEED KILLS..
What a load of f****n bollocks.

It is good to see the blow torch being put on these guys.About time the RACV got off its backside and truly represented motorists who fill its coffers.If the number crunchers are right no wonder Mr Batchelor wants his "Speed kills" campaign to continue, the revenue raised is the labor govt's budget surplus,without it they would be in the red.Same old story as the 1980's as far as labor $$$ management is concerned(End of whinge)
Cheers

I don't have an issue with him getting caught - hell he's doing what I do every day. It's more amatter of the double standards and the two faced representation.

Grrr.

This really gets on my nerves. Notice that he gets done doing 58 in a 50 then the limit of the street goes up to 60???

RACV do help us road users. It's good to see. :D

58 in a 50 Zone, what about all the ads about stopping distance and the TAC "wipe off 5" campaign? We get it drilled into us day after day that Speed Kills and it is dangerous to speed, then he backflips and says he didn't think he was driving dangerously.
