Evidence the Police Accept when you are being intercepted even if 40km/h over the speed limit

Evidence the Police Accept when you are being intercepted even if 40km/h over the speed limit.

  1. You were speeding because the traffic was light and you are an experienced driver.
  2. Pressured to issue a warning notice and not a fine.
  3. “At that time of the morning, traffic would be light and there would be no danger to members of the public.”
  4. The police officer is inexperienced in conducting speed checks and was driving an Police vehicle that “did not have a certified speedometer”.
  5. Challenged the speed nominated (if no radar was used)… you would be able to mount a reasonable case for the matter not to be proved beyond reasonable doubt in a court of law,”

If refused still, ask how many other motorists had received warnings when allegedly caught speeding in a similar range?

If still refused then print out this article found here and ask how many police officers had he ever intercepted in his career?

If none, would that indicate that they all drive within the speed limit when off duty? Or is it if YOU were a police officer those excuses above are acceptable?

Does it not show bias?

Now of course none of us would ever expect the above to work, they will likely still give you the fine.

However should you decide to contest this, the above will be evidence in your favor in the first instance (showing extreme prejudice in many cases) and in the second even if it does not ultimately win in Court on the above basis at least you stood your ground and knew your rights.

You do have the right to ask questions also, just as the officer may have the right to ask for your name and address.

    Some good points made. It’s concise and and easy to read. Might defend my speeding ticket. The cop never offered to show me the photo. Too busy telling me to stay in my car.
