    "The faster you go, the worse your injuries will be. In 2012-13, ACC received around 85 road injury claims a day over summer, that's 85 families impacted, a total of 7500 people hurt on our roads and a huge cost to New Zealanders."


    Cool -- then why just stop there? Why not reduce all limits to 80? That should cut down on crashes. Maybe 60? How about 30? Actually, just stay at home!

    I use a GPS to read the speed as the clock on the bike is way off. In nearly all cases the clock will be optimistic where a 100Km/h is at best 95KM/h actual.

    Blind guy should have seen this coming... fuck it's irritating.

    Currently looking for a van, ute had cruise control... van won't. Top of the accessory list is fitting an aftermarket cruise control. Just not worth the risk otherwise... I use it most of the time I'm not in traffic as I don't drive enough to detect small changes...

ID:	305951...you have been warned!

    FUCK...THEM!

    NZ mechanical standards LAW, clearly states that speedo's must be accurate within a 10% margin...and allowances MUST be made for this fact & LAW!

    ...currently, if you disbute the ticket for a BULLSHIT! amount over the speed limit...you can ONLY go to a police approved "Speedo Testin facility"(...of which there are only THREE in the country!)...and the cost to prove your speedo was out...is over $300!!, so this actually means that the tickets cannot be legally defended in court by the average motorist....which every Kiwi has A RIGHT! to do so.

    This is a BLATANT scam by the Govt & police to generate more "unqustionable" revenue from the avergae road user...NOTHING MORE!!!(Move the goal posts much??)

    Again, they have twisted the figures to met there own greedy agenda.

    REFUSE TO ACCEPT THE TICKET!!...you have the RIGHT to defend yourself in court, make them post the ticket and clearly state, "I will be disbuting this ticket officer, as this has NOTHING to do with roadsafety, and you have limited my means to defend myself...see you in court!"

    If EVERYONE!!!!, does this, the courts will be crippled by the influx of case's...the cost's will soar, more and more police will be held up in court, and the whole BS scheme will have to be scrapped as it will cost MORE to collect the fines, than the revenue created!....fight back!!, use there own Bullshit systems against them.

    enough is enough!, we are NOT an endless source of revenue for this Greedy Govt...FIGHT FUCKING BACK!!


    REFUSE THE TICKETS!!

    NZ Police...whom do you serve??, the PEOPLE of NZ?...or just those in power or Rich enough to afford "NZ justice"! (But by all means, keep pushing!...No seriously!...just keep fucking pushing us!!...theres only 18k of you!...best you lot don't forget THAT! fucking figure...you tax collectiing sellouts!)



    Have a great Xmas NZ...don't forget to bring your ID & Wallets!


    ps-I Have always had the greatest respect for the police and the difficult job they do(And I have taken MANY a beating backing there arse up when I ran Bars etc all over NZ)...but recently, the force seems to have changed for the worse!...more & more young, tattooed up, angry, violent, short tempered power tripping thugs! seem to be joining the force (And are encouraged to do so..."to dumb to pass the math test?...HELL!, best we lower it then, we don't need "intellectuals" anyway...just THUGS!")....well Im over it!, they wanna alienate themselves from the average Kiwi by treating us as ignorant fools who can't see BULLSHIT & BLATANT revenue collection when its put in front of us...fine!, ITS THERE LOSS!

    - you reap what you sow! (And all there planting lately...is discontempt!)

    I'm pretty sure someone tried saying the ticket for the 4km/h tolerance wasn't worth much so couldn't be for $$$

    ...in respects to the 4km/h tolerance
    The tickets totalled more than $6 million in fines, an increase of about $5m from the previous years.

    What other forms of breaking the law have a tolerance?? So TPTB are getting tough ... either don't break the law or don't whinge when you get caught ...

    (I think I might have got caught this morning, but I'll need to wait three weeks before I get the potential speed camera ticket ... bugger, I've already paid one this month.)

    The argument for revenue gathering by the highway patrol falls flat even taking into account bigger tickets due to the operating costs of cop salary, patrol car etc and the small amount of tickets issued per hour.

    But for speed cameras, yes revenue gathering can be profitable.

    one of my staff is just doing a limited licence application for someone who went over the jackpot for demerits. Bit of a faff but an easy enough couple of k

    But not really cause the popo is a fixed operating cost which would be paid regardless of what he does only this way the Govt makes $$$ lots of easy $$$
    Course too they are steadily increasing automated scammers so I wouldn't expect those human ones to be too abundant in a few years
