Yes...despite all warnings, i copped a speed camera fine on the way to Heathcote. i was driving a very fast speed of '84' in a '80' zone. just another point to add to a long list.
I got this in the mail today....so if anyone else thought maybe they were going 3-4k too fast, you might get one also.

BUT 4KPH WOULD HAVE MADE SUCH A DIFFERENCE!! COULD'VE NEARLY HURT SOMEONE!

Where was it Hamo? Was it on the way out of Melbourne where that Maroon car was parked?

Sorry to hear it, 4km over is bloody annoying.

it was at 9:00am on the way out of melbourne, i think he was parked in the middle of the road.

well...my girlfriend is gonna take the points for me...i can't afford to lose anymore,
i did read a few things about contesting these fines, just don't think i have the time to put into something like that. it would be a good message though cos i am sick and tired or 'their' rules and regulations.

Kooky & I in the lead car tried to contact steve so he could get a message across about that speed camera but we couldn't get him on the phone.
Sorry about that.

We did slow down going past it though, so you must have been in the back group catching up.

Also, think about getting the pic as it might just show the long trail of cars.

Cheers

Yes I saw it as well, I will definitely be getting one. It was in the middle of the road just after leaving ford HQ. I thought it was a 4wd of some sort, it even had a surfboard on the roof racks. I remember saying to my brother that was a speed camera and he laughed it off because of the surfboard.

I'm at work at the moment and I'm calling home right now to see if there's anything for me in the mail.

Doesn't look like it unless it's a bit late. that camera would have caught a heap of people that day!
