For those in the area, there is a hand held on roe highway southbound just after the split from reid highway.

Now....This seems normal by all account, but get this. The Cnut with a radar, in his zeal for public safety and to protect and serve, is standing UNDER the 100km/h sign, stinging ppl (among which has just been my sister) as they 'speed' in the 80 zone preceeding the 100 zone.

I mean, FFS!! he's busting ppl as they accelerate up to 100 (most....some nobs are undoubtedly speeding obviously) in the hundred metres or so before the sign.

Whilst the guy is probably 'technically' correct in his issue of infringements, geez....a tad low perhaps?
I congratulate this numbnut, he&#39;s making <strike>poorer</strike> safer road user of us all.

F*$kin nerd. :angry:

Well that&#39;s completley Kerfuked. IMO It is a pain in the arse to decelerate down from 100 to 80 as you&#39;re going along near Tonkin and rightly so if you get pinged driving through that section, but to ping some poor bastard as they&#39;re accelerating when they see the 100 sign.
I&#39;d be spitting chips, even if i didnt have chips on me!

AFAIK, you can&#39;t get done for doing the higher speed within 200m of a change of speed sign. ie. unless he is pinging cars more than 200m away, you&#39;ll be able to fight the ticket.

+1

Don&#39;t know the distance either...but there is one :confused:

*starts hunting on internet*

Found this....bastards

(3) A speed-limit sign on a road applies to the length of road
beginning at the sign and ending at the nearest of the following:
(a) a speed-limit sign on the road with a different number on
the sign;
(B) an end speed-limit sign or speed derestriction sign on the
road;
© if the road ends at a T–intersection or dead end — the end
of the road.

Judging by that, you would have to pass the sign then start accellerating up to 100 kph

IT&#39;S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!

there isn&#39;t any specified distance under law.

A general rule of thumb when i was in the job (many moons ago) was 300 from the sign.

But there&#39;s no law.

Yep - you&#39;re dead right, although the policy was 100m when I left. It&#39;s still up to the officer&#39;s discretion though.
