    I think you mean dispute ... but the reading you see on YOUR speedometer is irrelevant ...

    The reading on their Hawk units is what the court gets to decide your guilt from ...

    If YOU do NOT know the accuracy of the speedometer on your vehicles ... YOU are at fault. And a dickhead to boot ...

    A faulty reading on your speedometer(s) is NO defense in a court of law.

    You also have the (preferred) right to remain silent ... road safety or not ... speed limits are law. You know the rules and penalty's if you break them.

    If you have "Limited means to defend yourself" ... stay innocent.

    Almost right .... but wrong. It will just take (a lot) longer for your case to be heard. Costs WILL soar (including fines)

    Enjoy your wait to get your "Time in Court"

    on a Harley it's harder to get a speeding ticket than to avoid one, isn't it?

    Payment of any fines asked for is ADMISSION of GUILT. Then no court case required.

    Don't pay the fine and have your "Day in Court" ... (that IS your RIGHT)

    The tickets totalled more than $6 million in fines, an increase of about $5m from the previous years"

    Seems like a pritty good earner
    I wonder what proportion of those were speed camera tickets. Most, I suspect. Not too many of the troops really bought into it, but that'll change over time.

    Troops will be busy on the booze buses this year, hence the beat up about the 0 tolerance to get the suckers to hold up the traffic.

    Or packing tasers and standing guard by speed cameras to prevent them being destroyed.
    Lets face it your being replaced by a machine that's cheaper to run and collects tax more efficiently.
    Just to add insult you will end your days protecting the governments more valuable assets.

    Just saying.

    Booze buses are part of the master plan. They make people late so that they speed and get camera fines. Works well in conjunction with a 4kph tolerance as even the most well behaved person whose late will stray 4kph and get taxed.
