Speeding fine - paperwork accuracy question

Postby timfishy » Fri Jun 30, 2017 8:47 pm

Hi everyone,

I received a hand written speeding fine in the mail after being stopped by an undercover car. I believe they decided to send it in the mail as we were in the right hand emergency stopping lane on a busy freeway and I was respectful and compliant. The emergency lane was very generous however.

Anyways, the question I have is about the infringement notice accuracy and at what point is it subject to challenge.

With my fine, the only 2 errors are the underline between the choice of "Motor Vehicle / Trailer Registration No.", the officer has underlined "Trailer". The second error was the "Type" of vehicle which is listed as "Honda Solo".

In this case I believe they would have footage of my behaviour on the road and it wouldn't look good at all as I came past them and they 'let me go' before I got upset about a car failing to keep left in the far right lane on a highway and lane split to get past them at 124 (according to them). The Act/Reg no. of the infringement offence alleged is RR2C and the "Information about the offence" is T/E MM2". An Acting Sergeant issue the offence. The officer asked for the licence and I provided it without comment. He then asked if I had a reason for speeding and I said exactly "No, just trying to get to work".

I got a similar fine from a fixed highway speed camera near Boundary Road dated about a month ago.

Thanks in advance

He didn't underline trailer. He crossed it out but the carbon was not perfectly aligned so on your copy it looks like an underline instead of a strike-through.

He didn't mean Honda Solo, he meant Honda solo.

Anyway, read http://trafficlaw.coma.u/fines.html#defect
It never the things he writes on the ticket that matters. It is always the things he fails to write.
