don't confuse alleged speed with detected speed though... usually 2km/h different I think....

I've been done for 4 km/h alleged over, at least 3 times.

Been thru 2 cameras at 10 over with no issues (50 & 60 zone).  Maybe my speedos out.

Hey Ash - Is that a photo of you speeding recklessly down Anzac hwy on Fchat.  Should have blurred your speedo.

From a cop friend here in QLD, speed cameras are set 11km over the limit and handheld is a 10% margin on the limit.

Speed-limited bus booked

POLICE blame human error, not the state's fixed speed cameras, for a fine wrongly issued to a bus driver on the Hume Highway near Melbourne.

The driver from Seymour Coaches, at Seymour, in central Victoria, was issued with the $250 fine after Victoria Police alleged he was detected doing 123km/h in a 110km/h zone on the Hume Freeway at Craigieburn, north of Melbourne, in April.


Seymour Coaches managing director Peter Louchnan said it was not possible for the bus to do 123km/h because it was fitted with a speed limiter.

"The vehicle is speed limited to 100km/h from the factory," Mr Louchnan told Southern Cross Broadcasting.


But Victoria Police said today human error was to blame, and not a fault with the camera.

"It is not a technical systems fault, it is an error in human verification," Superintendent Shane Patton said.

"My staff member here hasn't done their job properly, hasn't checked the images properly."

"It's totally unacceptable what has occurred."

 

Supt Patton said the bus had been photographed at four fixed speed camera check points on the freeway.

He said the error occurred because another bus from Seymour Coaches with a similar number plate was travelling in the same direction on that stretch of the freeway at the same time.


Victoria Police has now withdrawn the fine.

Seymour coaches said it was satisfied with the outcome, but the bus driver "Warren" said he had no faith in the speed camera system.

"There are lots of number plates out there that are similar," Warren said.

"What's going to happen? Are these people going to get booked and have to resort to taking it to court before something is done about it."
