A surprise outcome at Dandenong court with a VicPol member winning against the Eastlink speed cameras.
This case was won on EXTRA calibration of her marked police car being allowed as well as her statement on her speed and a junior witness travelling with her.
Sadly this wont open the floodgates as no new proof against the holy Sec 83A certificate relied on in all cases was tendered.
Openly the judge took the case and dismissed the fine, but sadly the expected $100,000 costs will still be out of the range of others fined on this tollway and other roads.
Remember 32 cameras coming to a suburb near you real soon.
The public has no faith in the system now as it seems to be one rule for them and another for us suckers.
Spot the bonehead here
And to think other ‘media’ get the simple facts so wrong
Both the HeraldSun and News.com.au have clearly indicated the TOLLING gantry as the SPEED cameras
People wander along to court stating the ‘Neil Mitchell’ factor as their blind defense and sadly the media illustrate the wrong toll point to be keeping an eye on their speed.
And TT (please dont confuse this with actual journalism)
Hint – the ‘Cameras’ stated are actually toll points, again
