Victoria's Stealth Taxation Dept Action Shot

Well, does anyone who went on the FF Raid recognise their car in this shot? I recognise some

Makes you wonder, we're all travelling in close knit convoy at what must be virtually the exact same spped (look at the car spacings) yet only two get tickets.

This is what I think of "Civic Compliance Victoria":

Wow. It is amazing that they could tell anything specific about your car from that picture.

I hate to hear about your ticket. I was thinking that Tony should be contacting us soon about at least one. (Of course crossing fingers that we are wrong)

The original photo is far clearer as it is on film. This is a scan from a colour print on cheap paper - they have to protect their cost base you know! Otherwise they wouldn't be sending so much money to the government.

From this picture though, how do they know who set the camera off?? How can they tell it was you, not the Commo?:hrm:

They probably booked the Commodore as well. Camera + straight road = revenue.

it sux how they lie to motorists about speed cameras lowering the road toll. the assholes dont even use the money for anything usefull like fixing some of the shit roads ,accident blackspots or driver education. they just stick the money in thier retirment funds.

Terrorising a crap driver near you!
