    Speeding Fine Increase

    FYI

    ".. note that from tomorrow, 5 September 2017, the modified penalty for speeding by more than 40km/h over the limit will increase from 20 PU to 24 PU ($1,200). This is a result of an amendment to reg 17(1)(e) Road Traffic Code 2000 which was Gazetted on 25 July 2017 to come into force 6 weeks later, being 5 September 2017."

    Info circulated by LegalAid

    .. and according to Sean'o: 'get the Kwaka (never thought i would say that!)'

    Such a heinous crime, speeding, next thing you know it will carry a mandatory prison term of not less than twenty years and a loss of all assets.

    Unlikely - they WANT us to speed - and they'll just continue to jack up the fines - it's an endless stream of revenue. If they really wanted to stop us from speeding, they'd have speed cameras all over the place, and instead of hefty fines, it would be much easier to lose your license.

    The statistics on the number of people driving while suspended or with expired rego etc. incidates that removing driving priveleges alone doesn't prevent people from driving. While I agree there is some element of revenue raising it's not the only reason fines need to increase.

    If they really wanted to stop people from speeding, they could enforce mandatory fitment of electronic speed limiters intergrated with wireless comms to vehicles, and upgrade road infrastructure by installing "speed control transmitters" that communicate speed limits to vehicles so they can't physically exceed the limit...except those authorised to do so. Or they could introduce driverless vehicles or something...

    The speed limits on many roads are pathetic...they are purposely set at speeds suitable for the 50's to gain revenue. Then add in the terrified drivers who sit in the outside lanes of 70 zones doing ten to twenty under the speed limit because they are so worried about exceeding the limit by one or two kilometres they hold everyone up...frustrated people then try to overtake in a dangerous manner which adds to the risks.

    If governments were interested in anything other than collecting cash to shore up their increasingly greedy cash needs they would have a bigger police presence on the road...no safety advantage gained by fining people after the fact...two weeks after! The day they admit to nothing other than cash collection, in most cases, will be the day Satan skates to work! If this were not the case why the need to hide in the bushes?

    if nobody got a speeding fine the budget would crumble and taxes would double.

    it is and can only be a revenue raising exercise. some call it a voluntary tax contribution. probly the most accurate description at the moment.

    Really?
    Seems odd Mr and Mrs Fucktard agree with speed limiters on trucks but shy from them on every vehicle.
    I believe they are dangerous on trucks for exactly the same reason.

    Mine ended up arse first into a tree after a normal speed right hander when slightly wet. Good times

    And I reckon they dangerous in all applications GM. Operator should have control. Automated avoidance however has impressed me in some euro cars I've driven

    In some Jap ones I've had lane splitters trigger it quite dangerously

    Most likely reason they haven't then.
    A good idea in theory is sometimes not so good in practice

    I don't mean any disrespect whatsoever to anyone affected by such things, but that is happening anyway and already contribuites to the reason why there is a push for change...be it decreased speeds, increased vehicle automation/safety and/or increased fines etc...

    Speed cameras cause more accidents than they prevent, people are focusing on their speedo, looking for cameras - not paying attention to the road and the task at hand, driving. Inattention is the biggest cause, speed may be a factor in a death but the root cause remains the same. Pretty sure there was a study in the UK or US where they showed speed cameras being ineffective.

    If they wanted people to have less accidents, they'd raise the speed limits. I love going on the freeway at 6am and 7pm, everyone's doing 110-120, no cops, no cameras - the traffic just flows beautifully. Soon as there's a cop car - 90, brake checks, random sudden braking, irrational driving maneuvers. Essentially - stupidity abounds. God forbid there's cops on bikes running their tag team operations - hell ensues.
