Our 25% off Christmas promotion is on now - for 10 days only!
Well, the festive season is fast approaching and that means that the revenue raising goons will be out in force trying to extract as much money as possible from the innocent motorists of Australia. With the addition of double demerit points now in many states you simply cannot afford to be without our information this holiday period.
So, in order to assist as many people as possible we are running our ever popular 25% off Christmas promotion. Now, any of you who have been Members or Subscribers for some time will know that we only ever run a promotion once or twice a year so this truly is a very limited offer.
We are running the promotion from now through til midnight on Christmas Eve and you will need to enter the word “Christmas” into the Coupon Code box when placing your order and the 25% discount will be automatically applied. Please note that this discount applies to all digital and hard copy versions of our e-book only. You can become a Member and take advantage of this very special offer by clicking the following link - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and selecting the option that best suits you.
As per our regularly updated Testimonials page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - you will note that the best time to get our information is before you get a fine so get in today because this special promotion will only be available until midnight on Christmas Eve.
If you are already a Member then you will truly appreciate the benefit of being armed with the latest information on defeating all unjust and unlawful traffic fines and you will appreciate what a brilliant Christmas gift this would make for anyone who drives in this country. Please note that orders must be in by the end of this week to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.
On a separate note, we received the following story through from one of our Members who has family overseas and the article below, from England, further confirms that speed cameras do absolutely nothing to save lives or reduce accidents:
You will note that the article clearly states that, despite 5 cameras being switched off “There has been no increase in accidents at those locations.” So, since you now know for certain that speed cameras are simply there to raise revenue, we would urge you to visit our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - and add your signature to the list to help have these unlawful and ineffective devices removed from our roads too.
In fact, to demonstrate how utterly determined the majority of police are to raise revenue by fining motorists, the following story shows how they treat the one fair officer who tried to actually help people:
And the police wonder why motorists have no faith in them or “the system” anymore – what a joke! One cop actually tries to teach motorists a lesson in a fair and reasonable way – by fining them but helping them to still keep their licence and thus, their livelihood, and this is how he is treated – what a PR disaster for the Victoria Police.
So please, don’t for one moment think that this holiday period is going to be anything other than a massive grab for cash by police officers, mobile and fixed cameras as well. There will be more police on our roads this year than ever before and there will be more cameras operating than ever before so your chances of receiving an unjust and unlawful fine this holiday period will be dramatically increased over previous years.
So, be sure to protect your licence this coming holiday period by being of our informed and educated motorists and, when the discussion of fines comes up during work break up parties and the like – as it inevitably does – please pass our details onto everyone you can.
We still have some business cards and bumper stickers left so if anyone would like to help promote our information and assist fellow motorists then please e-mail us and we will send some out your way.
Once again, we thank you all for your continued support and we hold out every hope that 2010 will be the year that we finally put an end to the ridiculous and ineffective system that is currently being enforced and that the “powers that be” finally start taking notice of the many ideas that we have outlined on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
Take care out there,
November 25, 2009
Enough with the speed camera CRAP!
That’s it, we’ve cracked it! We have seriously had enough. Each time we release an update providing more proof that speed cameras are simply there to raise revenue – please refer to our last e-mail update - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News%7B47%7DUpdates.html - they release another story in the media with more crap about how they supposedly save lives.
The latest stories from Queensland about the “necessity” to install 8 speed cameras in a single tunnel to supposedly “save lives” would have to be the most mis-leading rubbish on this subject that we have ever read. The sad fact is that many motorists will buy into this crap and then very likely blindly pay the multiple fines they receive from these unlawful revenue raising devices.
Now, we know we have sent many media articles through but we really have to warn you about the following few stories because, as regular readers of our updates, we know that you are going to be appalled and disgusted by their content. So, please read with care:
The first story is from the Courier Mail in Brisbane - http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,26386088-952,00.html – and has the Police Minister trying to justify the need for 8 new speed cameras in a tunnel less than 7 kilometres long.
The third paragraph is the most important one for you, as informed and educated motorists, to note. The speed camera “policy and use” manual clearly states that cameras are ONLY to be used in areas that are known blackspots. How on earth can they justify installing 8 cameras on a stretch of road that hasn’t even opened yet, let alone had a single accident?
How about following their own guidelines and waiting to see if there are actually any accidents in that particular tunnel and then deciding if installing a speed camera is the most appropriate remedy instead of just jumping the gun and installing 8 – just to make as much money as quickly as possible.
Exactly the same principle applies to all the illegally erected cameras on the recently opened Eastlink Road in Victoria. Should you ever receive a speeding fine from one of these cameras you would immediately raise the fact that they have been installed against the speed camera policy and therefore any subsequent fines are unjust, unlawful and un-enforceable.
Of course, the real reason these cameras are being installed is outlined in paragraph 8 – to raise revenue. The beauty is that the 10th paragraph clearly explains your ultimate defence against any fines issued by these cameras – assuming the legal points raised above are somehow overlooked or discounted – and that is that these cameras are now digital and therefore the flawed MD5 algorithm applies to ensure that no photos from these unjust and unlawful devices can be used in court against you.
Now, if you’re not sure of the significance of the flawed MD5 algorithm or how to use it to your advantage then you need to become a Member and grab a copy of our e-book straight away so that you are armed with this licence saving information. Please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and order your copy now.
Okay, moving on, there is another interesting article within that last story which can be reached by following the “Editorial – save lives before issuing fines” link below paragraph 5. Otherwise, you can use the following direct link - http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,26385322-13360,00.html
This is another story from the Courier Mail and brilliantly covers the very points that we raise above – namely, the fact that speed cameras are only supposed to be installed in known blackspots and this new tunnel is clearly not one of them and furthermore, that the QLD government has completely failed to provide any proof that speed cameras actually save lives or reduce accidents.
The reality is that speed cameras do not save lives at all. You will no doubt be surprised and amazed that, despite sending our last e-mail out to over 11,000 people and asking anyone who has had their life saved by a speed camera to please write to us, we didn’t get a single reply! There is no data, anywhere in the world that shows that speed cameras save lives. In fact, if you take the time to look over our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - you will find that speeding is actually only a factor in just 5% of accidents and speed cameras have zero affect on reducing the road toll.
Furthermore, if you look over our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - you will note that numerous studies from around the world show that speed cameras actually increase accidents. So, by installing 8 cameras along this tunnel, the QLD government is almost guaranteeing that they will cause the very thing they are supposedly trying to stop!
Please, if this information upsets and concerns you as much as it should do, then be sure to sign our on-line petition to have all speed cameras removed and be sure to pass this e-mail onto every motorist you know.
But wait, there’s even more. This whole nonsense of installing 8 new cameras in such a small stretch of road has created so much furore that there was even a third article written on it this week. The following article, entitled “Get Real Queensland” shows how absolutely desperate the Police Commissioner is to try and defend this ridiculous decision (to install these 8 cameras) that he goes off on some tangent trying to correlate murdering someone to the need to install these cameras.
You can read the story for yourself here - http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/get-real-queensland-20091124-jaj7.html
Now, let’s get one thing straight, if you murder someone, you get charged and hopefully go to jail. If you even plan to murder someone you would also get charged and still, hopefully go to jail. Yet, you can think about murdering someone all day long and nothing will happen to you.
And, if you kill someone on the road, you get charged with culpable driving. If you nearly kill someone on the road or even have an accident that is clearly your fault, you will get charged with dangerous driving. You can’t get charged for “speeding” when it has nocorrelation to killing anyone or even causing an ACCIDENT!
There is no victim and there is no crime and therefore there is no need for any punishment – speeding and the installation of speed cameras are nothing like murdering someone! Seriously, how desperate do you have to be to twist the facts and to come up with such an insane analogy as Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson has done in this story?
At this point, we must say that we agree with the concept that people need to take responsibility for their actions and behaviors on the roads but this is not achieved through speed cameras – as the Police Commissioner suggests - it is achieved through re-education and better driver training – which is what Aussie Speeding Fines is all about ultimately trying to achieve. Mr Atkinson’s suggestion that “shrugging off speeding fines and speed cameras means that you are shrugging off your responsibility of care” is as outrageous as it is baseless – has can provide absolutely no evidence to back up this ridiculous claim and making statements like this again, just shows how utterly desperate he is.
Again, we know we’ve explained it a dozen times before but we will keep explaining it until every motorists gets it – speed cameras do not save lives, they do not reduce the number of crashes and they do not even cause people to slow down. After all, if they did, then why are more and more speeding tickets issued every year? The simple fact of the matter is that speed cameras are there simply to raise revenue and we challenge anyone to provide factual evidence to the contrary.
So seriously, enough is enough of this rubbish. Let’s make 2010 the year to put an end to the use of these blatant revenue raising devices in Australia and let’s implement some strategies that truly will make our roads safer.
We would urge you all to please make sure that you have signed our on-line petition to have all speed cameras removed from service - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - and we would ask you to familiarise yourself with the types of strategies that really will make our road safer, on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
Then, when you understand that we truly are here to make a difference for all motorists we would urge you to help spread the word by passing this e-mail onto everyone in your Contacts list and also joining our Affiliate program – where you can earn a 33% commission on all Memberships simply by helping other people to save their licence!
We would also like to remind you that we still have some business cards and bumper stickers left from our last run so if anyone would like us to send some out free of charge to further help spread the word then just e-mail us your postal address and we will send some your way.
Finally, if you really want to do something pro-active to help remove all these unjust, unlawful and ineffective speed cameras from our roads then we would remind you to please contact Darryl from the Community Law Resource Group at www.communitylawresourcegroup.info/ or on 0407 341 366.
Far too many times in life we hear people say things along the lines “It’s no big deal, there’s no need to make Federal case out of it.” Well, the situation with speed cameras causing completely innocent motorists to lose their licences as well as hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars is a big deal and Darryl and his group are doing exactly that – making a Federal case out of it.
Darryl needs all the support and donations he can get to help bring this case to fruition so please contact him via the details above and/or see our August 7th, 2009 update – via our News/Updates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News%7B47%7DUpdates.html – for further details. Remember, Darryl is using a professional Barrister and all funds donated will be placed into a trust account with a view of being returned upon successful completion of the case.
Please see this latest request from Darryl below and let’s follow in the footsteps of the very generous student who has truly stepped up to help make a difference:
We have had 4 people contribute to the court case thanks to your email out to your extensive database. One of those contributors put in $1000 and he is a student who used his bonus payment from the tax office to contribute to the cause. At this moment we have only raised about $1500 so we are a long way from the mark. We, at the Community law Resource Group, are asking again to put a plea to the good people on your database to contribute just $2 or $4 each and that is all that is needed to put the cameras and all speed detecting devices into the National Measurement Institute for verification.
Chairman Community Law Resource Group
Once again, we thank you all for your continued support and we hope you all stay safe out there.

Media Proof that speed cameras INCREASE crashes!
We find it incredible that, in this day and age, with all the information out there, some people still honestly believe that speed cameras actually “Save lives”. Now, apart from the obvious fact that a speed camera has never jumped off a pole and resuscitated anyone or physically saved a single life at all, there is actually overwhelming evidence that not only do they not save lives but they actually increase accidents! We encourage anyone who has ever had their life saved by a speed camera to please write to us and let us know.
Now, we have been saying this since we started our website over two and a half years ago but, back then, people didn’t believe us. So, about a year ago, we put up the following webpage - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - which has evidence from studies done around the world that speed cameras increase accidents. These studies also show that when speed cameras are removed and/or speed limits are raised, there are fewer accidents.
The following story is from the Courier Mail in Brisbane and relates to a particular camera in London, England and it backs up what we have had on our website perfectly. http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,26355319-954,00.html
Statements like “…. but figures released by police show crashes have risen by a quarter at the site.” and “A Freedom of Information request …. showed casualties have almost doubled since 2001 when the camera was set up.” should be of concern to motorists in every country that still uses speed cameras. The reality is that casualties have almost doubled in the spot that this camera was installed but it remains there because it has raised a million dollars in revenue.
So, why do people still choose to believe that speed cameras are there for anything other than revenue raising? We really don’t know but the following story from the Sunday Times in Perth certainly confirms the fact that people are starting to catch on to the issues we have been raising for a number of years now. http://www.news.com.au/perthnow/story/0,,26350207-2761,00.html
It is the following paragraph, from that story, that concerns us the most and is the whole reason that we launched our website in the first place – “There are also worries that innocent motorists could be slapped with fines.” Speed cameras have been proven time and again to be fundamentally flawed and that is why hundreds of thousands of innocent motorists are unjustly and unfairly fined each year and why we are doing everything we can to put a stop to it.
Please keep in mind the next paragraph of that same story – “In Victoria, Tenix Solutions was stripped of a multimillion-government contract in 2007 after a string of bungles. More than 1100 speeding tickets were wrongly issued.” What on earth makes anyone in WA think the same won’t happen there?
The fact is that speed cameras are there for one thing and one thing only – raising revenue. Again, should you have any doubt about this, please see pages 8 - 12 of the following report and see how proud the Redflex Group are for making so much money from innocent motorists - http://www.redflex.com/public_documents/presentations/2005-09-12%20Investor%20Briefing.pdf Yes, we know it’s a few years old and we know that we have sent it out before but we will continue sending this information out until people finally get the message – speed cameras are solely about raising revenue and have nothing to do with road safety!
Simple 5 year old mathematics will prove this beyond any doubt. Millions of speeding fines are issued each year and, if speed really was the “killer” that the media makes it out to be then the road toll would be in the millions, or at least hundreds of thousands. It’s not, it’s only in the hundreds. And, even in those hundreds of accidents, speed is only a factor in 5% of them! Speeding has next to nothing to do with accidents. Please see the following page for further proof of this - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
The majority of accidents are caused by either not driving to the conditions or in-attention. The introduction of speed cameras has seen drivers focusing far more on their speedos than the road and traffic in front of them, thus causing more accidents and this is why these unjust and unlawful revenue raising devices must be removed. Then, motorists can go back to driving sensibly - whether a few k's above or below an arbitrarily set speed limit or not - and take responsibility for their actions rather than having Big Brother breathing down their neck whilst the road toll steadily increases!
So please, pass this e-mail onto everyone you know who drives on our roads. Let’s put an end to this lunacy once and for all and let’s get every unjust and unlawful speed camera removed from service in this country. And, again, should anyone reading this be in any doubt that all speed cameras are, in fact, unjust and unlawful, please read the following response from Dr Brittain that was sent to one of our Members recently:
Dear Mr .....
I refer to your e-mail of 29 July 2009 (below) and I would make the following responses to your questions:
1. The certificates referred to in section 10 of the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth) are issued by either the NMI’s Chief Metrologist or legal metrology authorities appointed by the Chief Metrologist under the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth) i.e. certifying and verifying authorities. NATA accreditation does not itself confer the right to issue certificates under the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth).
2. Neither the CSIRO not the RMIT are appointed as a legal metrology authority under the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth) and I am unaware of their NATA accreditation status.
3. Pattern approvals are granted exclusive by the NMI’s Chief Metrologist.
4. Section 109 of the Constitution refers to inconsistency between State and Commonwealth law and the former cannot grant exempts from the provisions of the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth).
This e-mail is entirely without prejudice and nothing in it constitutes legal advice express or implied.

Now, if you don’t understand the significance of this e-mail and know how to apply the Section 10 argument to any and every speeding fine you receive then you need to go to our Memberships page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and grab a copy of our e-book immediately.
Then, once you have become one of the truly educated and informed motorists on the roads, we would urge you to e-mail us and we will send you out some bumper stickers and/or business cards to help spread the word and put an end to the corrupt and unlawful system that is currently being forced upon the motorists of this country.
As always, we thank you all for your on-going support and we again ask that you understand that we now have over 11,000 Members and Subscribers so please be patient with us and we will reply to every e-mail as quickly as we can but it can now take us a few days to get back to everyone.

Proof that local councils have no lawful authority!
Well, it has been a few weeks since we last sent out an e-mail update and this is because we have been absolutely inundated with e-mails in that time.
We have had a heap of new testimonials come through from yet more Members who have successfully used our information to fight back against unjust and unlawful fines and win. You can view some of the latest ones on our Testimonials page at - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
One of the most important e-mails we received in the past few weeks was one that was passed onto us, originally from John Wilson. Here’s what he had to say about a recent case that you can look up and verify for yourselves in the Parramatta Court in relation to Local Councils having no legal authority to issue fines as a result of Question 3 of the 1988 Referendum (this is explained in detail in Chapter 9 of our e-book):
“Yesterday morning, in the Parramatta Local Court, my son, Anthony, defended himself against a parking fine, and made the above quite clear to the "Magistrate" and said the Parramatta Council were a corporation, with an A.B.N. (Australian Business Number), that did not own public roads, etc.. The "Magistrate" refused to accept his words and said, "It sounds like a lot of waffle, to me." He said he would deal with the matter after he had dealt with some other cases. I went around to the Parramatta Library and a librarian printed off a page of a website showing that there was, indeed, just that question put to that 1988 Referendum. Copies were made and given to the "Magistrate" and the Prosecuting Attorney for the Council. To cut the story short: the first "Magistrate" would not handle the case and passed it onto another "Magistrate" who, in turn, sent it to another "Magistrate" and the third "Magistrate" eagerly dismissed the case against Anthony when the Prosecuting Attorney announced that he would not offer any evidence.”
So, if there is anyone out there who, in any way, doubts the authenticity or effectiveness of what we say, the above should well and truly put that to rest. As we stated earlier, you are welcome to contact the Parramatta Court and verify the outcome as outlined above.
We have also received a heap of questions about the so-called “New Road Rules” in Victoria as well as many e-mails with links to a number of very interesting media stories.
Firstly, the new “Road Rules” are exactly that “rules” They are not law, they have not been enacted in the Queen’s name - as they are required to be – and the Victorian Parliament hasn’t even seen the original publication entitled “Road Rules Victoria” let alone enacted it. Once again, this can be easily verified by requesting a copy of the Hansard entry – which is like the Minutes of a Meeting for Parliament – which details when these “rules” were discussed in Parliament – it never happened! So, whilst we appreciate that many people, specifically those in Victoria, are worried about these new “rules”, you have nothing to be concerned about because any fines emanating from these changes are just as unjust and unlawful as all other traffic fines.
Now, another very interesting e-mail we received recently contained the following link - http://www.roadsense.com.au/factsandfigures.html Now, we have no affiliation with this site what-so-ever, yet it mirrors the points we raise on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html and also our Petition to Remove Speed Cameras page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - almost perfectly. Please spend a few minutes to read over these pages so that you know the truth about these revenue raising devices.
Please note, there is something you can do about this injustice! You can join the 10,000+ Members and Subscribers who are educating themselves with our information and fighting back against these unjust and unlawful fines with the strategies in our e-book “Speeding Fines - What You Really Need to Know!” If you don’t have a copy yet, please go to our Memberships page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and join up now!
Here’s another story, this time from the Sydney Morning Herald, that once again mirrors exactly what we have been saying – that speed is not a killer at all and our roads would actually be safer if speed limits were increased rather than ridiculous fines being issued for exceeding sped limits that were set artificially low in the first place - http://www.smh.com.au/drive/motor-news/is-speed-really-a-killer-20091030-ho9e.html
And here is a story from the Herald Sun that clearly shows how out of control things are and how desperate people have become to save their licences - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/drivers-pay-others-to-take-blame-for-speeding-fines-and-traffic-offences/story-e6frf7l6-1225789063140 Now, we must point out that this is not the answer and engaging in this type of conduct could get you into a lot of trouble. Besides, as we said earlier, there is simply no need to go to these extremes when, for as little as just $67, you can become a Member and get our licence saving information as well as free updates for life.
So please, pass this e-mail onto everyone you know who drives so that they are armed with all our information before they get a fine and end up in a similar situation. Also, just a quick reminder that we have just finished another run of business cards and bumper stickers so if you would like to help spread the word, please e-mail us your postal address and we will send some out to you.
Finally, as many of you know, we are still working with another group who are about to release an e-book that covers proven techniques and strategies for fighting back against the banks. We have had a look over their info and it is truly amazing stuff. As soon as we know more, we will pass it on to all our Members. In the meantime, we received the following e-mail that gives everyone an opportunity to voice their displeasure on a whole range of topics and so we thought we would pass this on to you all.
I have just dropped you a line to invite all Aussie speeding fine members to make complaints against government agencies (ie SDRO etc) into our new database/website at www.nationalcomplaints.com.au . This database has been 2 years in the making and we would like to record of all these complaints. The complaint will come under the Government selection as we also take complaints against companies as well. Our goal is to have a record of the displeasure that people have against an unfair and unjust system. We do not disclose any private information without the users consent. I am a member of Aussie speeding Fines and have used your knowledge to get off 2 unjust infringements, so it gives us pleasure to try and help your cause as well. So take look at our site as we would like to have as many government complaints as possible.
We would encourage you all to have a look at this site and register any and all complaints that you have so that “we the people” can finally be heard and start making some changes to the current “police states” that we are currently being subjected to.
As always, thanks to everyone for their continued support and, stay safe out there!
P.S. We are expecting another large response to our mailout this week so please be patient with us and we will reply to your e-mails as quickly as we can.

Police admit to using the same reading to book multiple drivers!
Once again, we have been inundated with e-mails over the past week or so, since our last e-mail update. We have found that there has been an interesting balance this week between further reports of revenue raising by the police and feedback and success stories from our Members. There were way too many e-mails to include them all in his update so what we have done is provided links to the most important stories and we have put a number of new Testimonials up on our Testimonials page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - so please take a few moments to read over them.
You will note that we have feedback from people who have won simply using the 3 step letter process and also those who quickly and easily won their cases in court, using our information. In fact, we have added 5 new Testimonials – including two from the same person for two different fines – just in the last week!
Anyway, onto our headline story where a police officer has finally admitted something that we have been telling Members in our e-book all along – that police will use the same reading on a hand held device to book numerous motorists. You can read the full story for yourself below:
This is precisely why we tell all our Members that they MUST ask the officer whenever they are pulled over "Can you please show me where, on that device, it shows my vehicle speeding?" Of course, they can’t do that and that is a very important question to get on the record. For other vital questions to ask and equally important, things not to say, please refer to Chapter 2 of our e-book.
If you’re not yet a Member then please go to our Memberships page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and join up now. Just knowing the right questions to ask when you’re pulled over or knowing how to instantly deal with a camera fine you receive in the mail can be the difference between saving your licence or losing it. On top of that, all the invaluable information that our e-book covers in regards to the laws not being correctly enacted, devices not complying with the requisite Commonwealth laws and the myriad of issues inherent to all speed detection devices, will all serve you well for the rest of your driving years. Remember, once you become a Member you receive updates and support for life!
Speaking of inherent errors with speed detection devices, here’s another story that shows that their own independent testing shows errors with their own equipment - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/road-rage-at-camera-fines/story-e6frf7kx-1225783075529
But wait, there’s more – much more! Here is a story of a 4 month investigation conducted by Channel 9 that showed 568 faults over just 117 speed cameras - http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/172819/sydneys-faulty-speed-cameras-exposed
The 2nd last paragraph says it all – 4 years and $246,000 just to get all the paperwork for the reports on maintenance and accuracy of speed cameras! Now, we know we’ve said it 100 times already but we will keep saying it until everyone gets the message – speed cameras are fundamentally incorrect and only occasionally get it right not the other way around.
It dos not matter how carefully you drive or how far below the speed limit you drive at, with this many errors you will almost certainly receive an unjust and incorrect speeding fine at some point in your life. The best thing you can do is ensure that you are armed and prepared with our information before you get a fine so that you are in the best possible position to defeat it, quickly and easily.
Motorists are constantly bombarded with ridiculous messages like "Speed cameras save lives" and "Speed Kills", yet the statistics prove that this is simply not true. Please take a moment to read over some of the facts and figures for yourselves on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html and also on our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html
Here’s another story that proves that what these agencies would have us believe – about speed being such a major factor in accidents – simply doesn’t add up - http://www.goldcoast.com.au/article/2009/10/08/145755_gold-coast-news.html
Now, obviously, we do not in any way condone someone driving at excessive speeds, such as 50 km/h over the limit but, if anything, that just goes to further prove our point. If 550 motorists were booked for speeding and "Every K over is a killer" – or so they would have us believe – then where is the report of hundreds of accidents and deaths in this location? Especially given that people were detected at allegedly 50 km/h over the limit.
Here are only two possible answers, either none of these motorists were actually exceeding the speed limit – but were detected as such because the equipment is fundamentally flawed – or speed isn’t anything like the "killer" they would have us believe it is. The truth is that speed has almost nothing to do with accidents but it has everything to do with raising revenue!
Speaking of raising revenue, have a look at what they’re up to now - http://au.todaytonight.yahoo.com/article/6213558/general/parking-cameras-prowl
Now, someone, please explain to us how this is about anything other than blatant revenue raising. Where is the crime? Who is the victim? And, how does any of this impact on Road Safety? What a joke!
Hopefully, the language in the following article will frustrate you to the point of deciding to follow our system, fighting back and never paying an unjust traffic fine again - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/bullied-to-fine-drivers/story-e6frf7jo-1225785167694
This line says it all – "Officers already issue a fine a minute on average, earning $1 a second for city coffers." – yet now they’re being bullied into issuing even more fines that have absolutely nothing to do with road safety.
Seriously, how much longer are we going to just sit there and accept this? How many more people need to receive unjust and unlawful fines before the motorists of this country finally take a united stand and say "Enough is enough"? Our goal is to get every person to fight every unjust or incorrect fine they receive. Sure, it takes a bit of work but look at where we are headed if we don’t!
Finally, one of the key factors that our e-book explains, in detail, that relates to almost ever single traffic fine - whether speeding, parking or red light camera – is the fact that none of these devices comply with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act 1960.
Almost every state will try and tell their motorists, in one way or another, that this section of the law is not relevant. Now, our e-book explains exactly why it is relevant and why they must take notice of it. We provide actual case history where a Supreme Court Justice states "In my opinion, Section 10 of the National Measurement Act must be complied with when measurements are taken for any legal purpose. The language of the section is in clear and imperative terms."
For some reason, we get more people from Queensland, than any other state, saying that these agencies ignore this point when it is raised. So, why then do the Queensland Police refer to this very Act themselves, on their own website?
Please read Section 6.2 entitled "References to Legislation" on the following link - http://www.police.qld.gov.au/rti/published/policies/traffic-manual/06/Ch_06_PT1.htm
The fact is that, like all the information that is detailed in our e-book,this point is correct and valid, as are all the strategies that we cover for beating unjust and unlawful traffic fines.
So, there you have it, further proof that all these fines are just about revenue raising and, it’s getting worse. So please, do yourself and everyone you know a huge favour; read over our Testimonials page to ensure that you’re comfortable with the proof that our information works exactly as we say it does, become a Member and then pass this e-mail and our details onto everyone you know.

A speeding fine is now issued every 25 seconds – here is what you can do to fight back!
We have been inundated with e-mails and media reports since our last mailout and it seems like people are finally starting to get the message – all these fines are about nothing more than plain and simple revenue raising.
Here is the latest report from The Age newspaper in Melbourne where a speeding fine is issued every 25 seconds.
Now, we’ve explained this many times before but we will keep explaining it until everyone gets it – the figures do not add up, no matter how you dissect them. They have issued 21% more tickets in the last 12 months yet the road toll has only gone down by 5% therefore, the number of tickets being issued does not correlate to the reduction on the road toll.
Furthermore, they constantly shove down our throats that "Speed Kills" yet, by their own admissions, 312,500 speeding tickets were issued but the road toll only went down by 12 people. Now, if speed is such a big killer, as they would have us believe, then the road toll should have gone through the roof as result of all these motorists supposedly doing the wrong thing!
The fact is that "speed" is only a factor in just 5% of accidents. Please, before you even think about getting our e-book look over the facts and statistics on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
Speed is not the problem. Inattention and not driving to the conditions is what causes accidents. If you want further proof of this, please check out the following study - http://www.mobiledia.com/news/46149.html
Speeding fines do not save lives – the figures in the news article above prove this categorically. Speed cameras are not "safety cameras" and they too, do not save lives. In fact, as the information on our on-line petition page shows - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - speed and red light cameras actually increase accidents.
Please read this information thoroughly and then, when you are duly disgusted by the false and misleading rubbish that these agencies and the media constantly shove down our throats, pass these facts onto everyone you know.
The media report above spells it out,
''John Brumby writes a speeding fine every 25 seconds,'' said Mr Mulder, who said the Government was trying to make up for lost revenue from fewer motorists using EastLink than predicted." Speeding fines are simply issued to make up for "lost revenue".
And, as for rubbish in the closing line that "If you abide by the speed limit, you have nothing to worry about" – try explaining that to the elderly drivers, truck and bus drivers and other innocent motorists who are busted every day, despite being able to prove that the claims against them are impossible. The reality is that every single speed detection device in use in this country is fundamentally flawed and even if you drive below the speed limit at all times, you are still almost guaranteed to be issued with an unjust and unlawful fine at some point – especially now that a speeding fines is issued every 25 seconds!
Here’s a similar story from WA - http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/newshome/6108729/thousands-caught-speeding-on-new-highway/
Once again, the facts and figures do not add up. If 8367 drivers were caught exceeding the speed limit and, once again, "Every K over is a Killer’ – as they would have you believe – then where is the report of some 8,000 deaths or even 8,000 accidents???? There is no such report because speed has virtually nothing to do with accidents or the road toll. All they say is that 4 people lost their lives on the road – which, we agree, is very tragic - but there is no suggestion that it happened on that particular road or that any of those deaths had anything to do with speed!
Here is yet another article from WA that again clearly states that they are looking to install more speed and red light cameras just to increase revenue. They even admit that the money that they raise is not going towards road safety campaigns as it is supposed to.
Please, we ask you all to step up and say "Enough is enough". Fight back against these ridiculous, unjust and unlawful revenue raising fines and send a message to these agencies that we will no longer tolerate living in a police state and having false and misleading information shoved down our throats.
It is time to send a united message that the motorists of Australia are now ready, willing and able to fight back. Many of you have now become Members and armed yourselves with the life-changing information in our e-book. If you haven’t yet, then please go to our Memberships page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and do so.
We want to be able to send out more e-mails like we did in the last few months, showing reports and statistics of Members successfully fighting back against this corrupt system – please see our News/Updates page if you have missed any of our recent e-mails - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News%7B47%7DUpdates.html
If you are in any doubt as to the authenticity and effectiveness of our information, then please spare a few moments to read over our Testimonials page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
In fact, we received the following e-mail just the other day and it explains so much of what we do and why our information is so powerful that we just had to share it with you here:
Hi there team at aussiespeedingfines:
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for the second time now for the success of your e book and CD,3 step letters that I follow up & sent to the WA police and the policeman himself, including a full copy for the magistrate that was dealing with my case on the day and according to your e book and CD instructions.
In November last year I was stopped by a police sergeant and his offside for speeding doing 68km/p/h according to them on a 50km zone on a laser hand held gun trap near my place of residence. I was showed the gun telling me that I was doing 68 k/p/h on a 50 zone. This trap for starter was in a road with no housing on either side at all and they were on a very low point of this road coming from both sides [on the bottom of two hills] any how, I told them that I didn’t think I was speeding and did not agree to the reading but I was booked for doing 66 k/p/h on a 50 km/p/h zone. I followed the 3 step letters from your e book to the WA police and the policeman that gave me the infringement but the reply from the police after the first letter was that: As it appears to be your desire this matter has been listed to be dealt with before a magistrate [neither myself nor the West Australian Police will concede any of the clauses 1 to 12 of your letter].
The original court day was to be July 28 but we had a trip booked and I applied for the court day to be postponed and it was postponed for 24 of September just gone. On the day when I fronted up court and going into court to register with the Clark of courts I was approached by the prosecutor wanting to find out more about these letters and if I was to maybe plead guilty, according to his words, say to be doing 56-58 k/p/h. My response was, "No, you have not responded to any of my query in which I’m entitled to by law". In short, he wanted to know if I had taken any legal advice and were did I get these letters from. I told them that I had been on the net and generally doing some research, he then told me that they didn’t have to rely on the gun reading to prosecute me and that the police officer’s word would be enough to convict me. To be honest, this infuriated me to say the least but told him that I’m innocent, I didn’t think that I was speeding and my request for proof of that had not been forthcoming and that the magistrate would have to decide. He said, "Yes, we will let the magistrate decide."
Upon fronting up the magistrate, the prosecutor asked the magistrate to delay the case because the police srg that booked me was not there yet. Upon the arrival of the police srg and after speaking with the prosecutor I was quickly approached outside the court room by the police that booked me and informed that they will be dropping the case and he was most interested in finding out about these letters sent to them, he wanted to know where I got them from because they are having quite a few on the system. I pretty much told him the same as I had told the prosecutor but he looked unconvinced, not that I cared anyhow.
Upon fronting up, the magistrate the above was mentioned by the prosecutor and I was informed by the magistrate that the case was dropped and that I was free to go. I’m over the moon with the results and would like to thank you all very much for your effort persistent and encouragement that you bring out in your CD and e book.
So, there you have it, further proof that our information works, exactly as we say it does.
Once again, we would like to remind you all that we now have bumper stickers and business cards available, free of charge, to anyone who would like to help spread the word about our information and to help put an end to the ridiculous and ineffective revenue raising system that is being forced upon the innocent drivers of this country. If you would like us to send you some sticker and/or cards please just e-mail us your postal address and we will forward some to you.
As always, thanks again for your continued support and for helping to get this message out to every motorist in Australia!
Take care out there,
September 17, 2009
Look how desperate they've become now!
Well, it’s been yet another interesting week. Following on from our last e-mail update, where we provided links to the reports showing that 45% of people who challenge their fines are now getting off, things have really started heating up. In case you missed it, please go to our News/Updates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News%7B47%7DUpdates.html – to catch up on this and any other update e-mail that you may have missed.
Anyway, now that we have so many Members successfully fighting back against unjust and unlawful fines, these agencies have become increasingly desperate to raise their precious revenue and they have resorted to some extraordinary tactics.
We have been sent a number of reports over the past week or so but the two below really grabbed our attention in respect to illustrating jut how desperate they have now become.
The first story – believe it or not – relates to a parking ticket that was issued to a dog! Yes, you read correctly, a dog! Check out the story below for full details:
If that’s not blatant revenue raising and pure desperation then we don’t know what is!
And, here’s another one to make you want to start taking serious action against the people that we elected to look after us:
Please, if anyone of you out there requested your politicians to take measures like this then please let us know. If any of you condone this type of deceptive and subversive behaviour, again, drop us a line. Otherwise, we would urge you all to start sending a message back to the governments and their agents that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated!
But wait, there’s more! Not only are they going to ridiculous lengths to try and issue more fines but, given that so many people are now fighting back against these unjust and unlawful fines, certain state governments are trying to bring in totally preposterous legislation.
In the story below, you will see that in South Australia they are trying to suggest that a solitary Justice of the Peace now has the authority to hear a case in respect to a so-called "quasi-criminal" fine:
Now, as we have explained in great detail in our e-book, a solitary Magistrate – which is really just a Bail Justice – has no authority to hear these cases, despite the fact that do so every day because people let them get away with it. But, by no stretch of anyone’s imagination, could they ever assert that a Justice of the Peace has any right to do so what-so-ever!
Should you require some independent verification of a number of legal points – including the one above - that we make in our e-book, we would direct you to the following website: http://www.larryhannigan.com/Constitution.htm
On this website you will see further proof that a single Judge or Magistrate does not constitute a lawful court. They re-iterate what we say about local councils having no lawful authority and they touch on the point of a Referendum, which is explained in much greater detail in our chapter on Parking Fines, in the our e-book. They also explain why costs cannot be awarded against you, even if you lose and they also touch on the ramifications of the Forge v ASIC ruling.
We receive e-mails every week asking us if our information works in such and such state and, as we explain – and this website verifies – because our e-book relies on Commonwealth legislation and because Section 109 of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act, the information we provide applies equally to all states.
It is important to point out that we have no affiliation with this website at all, it is just something that was forwarded to us by a number of our Members who also noticed the striking similarity in a number of points that are raised both on this website and in our e-book.
Thankfully, people are finally starting to wake up to the truth about these ridiculous revenue raising fines. And, because so many people are successfully fighting back, a number of these agencies are being forced to "come clean".
In the following story about parking fines from the City of Melbourne, they freely admit that "parking fines were excellent revenue raisers for the city." They then go onto admit what we have said all along "That fine revenue is built into the city’s budget each year." Now, how can that possibly be seen as anything other than blatant revenue raising?
However, as we said in last week’s e-mail, there is no need to despair because the average person now has more or less a 50/50 chance of getting off any fine they object to and, armed with our information, that chance is dramatically increased.
To find out just how successful our Members are at avoiding these unjust and unlawful fines, please take a moment to read over our Testimonials page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
Also, we came across the following story which again confirms one of the key strategies for fighting any and all types of speeding fines – the photo from a speed camera cannot be used as evidence against you and interference affects all types of speed detection devices. See the story below for full details: http://www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/story/0,22606,26027954-2682,00.html
Our e-book contains actual paragraphs from the training manuals for radar, laser and speed camera devices which explain the various types of interference in detail and exactly what you need to do, step-by-step, to avoid paying these ridiculous and unjust fines.
So, if you don’t have a copy of our e-book yet, then please go to our Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and join up now.
Finally, we would like to thank all of you, once again, who have kindly offered to hand out business cards on our behalf and place bumper stickers on your vehicles. We have just received our latest run of stickers and a new batch of business cards will be arriving in the next few days so if anyone would like to assist us in spreading the word and putting an end to the current corrupt and unlawful system then please e-mail us. Be sure to let us know how many stickers or cards you are after and include your postal address and we will send them out to you free of charge.
As always, we welcome you to forward these e-mails on to everyone you know and hopefully, as the last few mailouts clearly show, we will continue making an impact and we will finally be in a position for the government to take note of the many new strategies and ideas that we have on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
Thanks again and stay safe out there!

Irrefutable proof that our Members are fighting back and WINNING!
Yes, we’re even working on Father’s Day – Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there – but the information in this week’s e-mail is so important that we just couldn’t wait to get it out.
It has been a very exciting time since our last e-mail. We have received more testimonials from Members who have successfully used our system to fight back and win. You can read the latest ones at - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
We also received an e-mail from an ex-cop who explained, in detail, a situation where he was sure a motorist had gone through a red light yet, when he actually stopped to check for himself, he found that the automated light sequence was actually incorrect. He rightly pointed out that, if he wasn’t physically there to check, then no-one would have ever known about the incorrect light sequence and this is precisely the problem with a fully automated system – such as speed and red light cameras – that have no human involvement what-so-ever. Please read our Bonus Report 3 that starts on page 69 of our e-book for further details on why there must be some kind of human correlation before any fine can be justly issued.
However, these e-mails were just the tip of the iceberg of our excitement last week because, a couple of very interesting reports have now been revealed under Freedom of Information and we’re sure you will be delighted with their contents.
The two media releases below, from NSW and Vic – the two states with the highest revenue from unjust and unlawful fines – show that tens ofthousands of motorists have saved themselves literally millions of dollars – as well as their licences, in many cases - by fighting their fines!
So, please take a moment to read these two reports for yourself and take particular note of the story from NineMSN, which states that 45% of people who fought their fines won!
Now, we would obviously like to suggest that it was the 45% of people with our information who won but we obviously could never justify that and, as those of you who have been Members for the past 2 and a half years that we have been operating would know, we pride ourselves on the correctness and authenticity of the information that we provide.
Obviously, we have no idea how many of those people who fought back actually have our information but even if you were to just look at the actual figures in these reports, any person who fights back against an unjust and unlawful fine has an almost 50/50 chance of beating it! And, with our information, we would suggest – and our testimonials back up that suggestion - that ratio would be considerably higher.
At the end of the day, the purpose of our e-book is to inform and educate motorists as to their rights and to inspire them to fight back against any and all unjust fines. We regularly get e-mails from new Members who are shocked at just how corrupt the current system is and they vow to fight every fine they receive. Our e-book details, step-by-step exactly how to do that and, armed with our information, you have the best possible chance of success.
Now, having said that, we really don’t mind if you use our information or someone else’s just as long as you fight back. You see, the most disturbing figure in those reports is the one that says that only 10% of people are fighting their fines. Now, we just covered the fact that nearly half of the people that fight their fines actually win but we need to change that 10% of people fighting their fines to 100%!
So, if you’re not yet a Member and you still wrongly believe that it is too hard to fight back or it costs too much etc. then please get our e-book now and find out how simple our system is to use. We have 25 pro-forma letters that you can simply edit and print out, we walk you through the entire court process from the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out – should that even be necessary (in many instances you can defeat an unjust and unlawful fine without ever having to go to court at all) – and we show you how, even if you were to somehow lose in court, why it still wouldn’t cost you any more than the original fine and, in many cases, less.
Please, use the following link to become a Member yourself - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and then pass this e-mail onto everyone in your contacts list. These reports prove that just simply “fighting back” against an unjust and unlawful fine means you have an almost 50/50 chance of winning - armed with our information though, you can increase that chance dramatically.
We are clearly starting to make a serious impact now but it’s still not enough. Whilst we love to hear that these agencies had to give back or lose $6 million dollars in unjust and unfair fines they are still raking in one billion dollars a year. We need everyone to fight back against every ridiculous fine they receive. Only then we will be able to implement some of the truly life-saving and road toll reducing strategies that we outline on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
So, please pass this e-mail and this exciting news – that nearly half the people who fight back against their fines win – onto everyone you can and let’s put an end to the current corrupt system that we are being subjected to every day.
As always, our heartfelt thanks go out to all of you who send these reports through and who provide us with feedback on your own personal successes with our system. We would also like to send an extra special “Thank You” to all of you who have been handing out business cards and placing our bumper stickers on your cars and trucks and we welcome anyone who would like to help in this regard – or anyone who needs a top up – to please just e-mail us your postal address and let us know how many cards and/or bumper stickers you are after and we will send them straight out to you.
Let’s get this message out to every motorist in
Take care out there,
P.S. A couple of Members have suggested the new format of putting important words in bold rather than CAPITALS. Please let us know if you prefer this new format or the old one.

Is this the BEST testimonial ever - PROVING that ALL our information is correct?
In the two and a half odd years that we have been operating, we have seen/heard/read it all. Much of what we have researched has blown us away personally and we have also reported on the fact that police officers, lawyers and even judges have also been quite amazed at what our information reveals about the TRUTH in respect to traffic fines – not to mention how excited our Members are when they read all the ground-breaking information contained in our e-book!
We have statistics on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - that show that speed is only a factor in 5% off accidents and NOT the “speed is the biggest killer on our roads” crap that is shoved down our throat by the so-called “authorities” and media.
In fact, we even have a page, our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - that shows that speed cameras actually INCREASE accidents!
We have previously sent through updates on all manner of traffic fine related topics and all past ones can be read on our News/Updates page- http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News%7B47%7DUpdates.html – in case you missed any. For example, we have followed the demise of Justice Enfield (who clearly DIDN’T have our e-book), we have reported on the most successful revenue raising cameras around the country and we have sent through links to videos showing how inaccurate all speed detection devices are and how simple it is for them to provide false readings.
We have also sent through reports showing that most police officers no longer believe in the current traffic enforcement system and are sick of operating as glorified tax collectors themselves.
Our e-book itself details all manner of mind blowing details such as the fact that NO traffic laws in Australia have been correctly enacted, how any “Road Rules” publication is just that, a book and NOTHING more. Our e-book also covers more complex topics such as the flawed MD5 algorithm and why no photo from a camera can ever be used as evidence against you and why NO speed detection device in this country complies with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act 1960 – as it MUST do, by law.
Our e-book also includes the actual pages from the training manuals of a number of the speed detection devices used in this country that explains, in detail, why they are so inaccurate and we also provide case history and replies from actual agencies PROVING that the information in our e-books WORKS in helping you avoid ridiculous and unjust fines from these unlawful devices.
In fact, we even have an entire web page dedicated to feedback from our Members who have successfully used our simple, step-by-step information to fight back against ridiculous and unjust fines and WIN! Please check out our Testimonials page if you haven’t yet done so - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
And now, we have just received an e-mail from one of our Members that is pure GOLD! This one testimonial covers virtually EVERYTHING that our system is about. Now, we don’t usually send a single testimonial out to all our Members, we simply add it to all the others on our web site and let people find it in their own time. This one, however, covered so many of the points that we raise and included actual conversations from not one, but TWO police officers - admitting that the current system does NOT work - that we just HAD to send it to you. Now, it’s kind of long for a testimonial so sit back, relax, read and enjoy:
Dear Aussie speeding fines folks,
I wanted to share the Wikipedia definition of the MD5 algorithm just for your reference. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Md5 how secure is a code that is so easily cracked? It's a joke!
On another topic, I had previously written to you to say I'd received a reply from the W.A. police in response to letter #1 (from your Ebook) I sent to them. They sent me an acknowledgment letter (which I shared with you a fortnight ago) saying the matter has been put on hold. I asked you then what I should do, and you replied promptly (as always) with the suggestion they were baffled by this correspondence and certainly agreed with me that they simply didn't know haw to handle it! You suggested I send the 2nd default letter when 28 days have elapsed, but read on!
Well, today I received a phone call from the very (probationary) police officer who booked me (incorrectly) for speeding (121Km/h in a 110Km/h zone). She conceded defeat by telling me the infringement was not going to be pursued as they had no way of showing the device was traceable under the National Measurement Act (Cth) and actually ADMITTED that the device's power supply (a CIGARETTE LIGHTER!) wasn't shielded and was "of concern to all police officers" . She went on to admit further that SO MANY readings were "questionable most likely due to input power fluctuations" and that fellow traffic enforcement officers (by a large majority) have DEMANDED a shielded power supply AND remedial training as to the proper use of these devices. So, a WIN for me and for Aussie Speeding Fines! Thank you!!!!
Seeing as I am waiting for a court hearing (October 14th for mention) to fight a multanova (a tripod mounted road-side speed camera used in W.A.), I decided to educate myself further in regard to the MD5 algorithm, as it will be only ONE of many avenues I shall use to add reasonable doubt in my defense. I'd written to request a brief of evidence and got it MINUS the photograph. When I wrote to the police again to ask for the photo, they rang me and said they were "having problems proving the photographs were 100% dependable and not subject to corruption", so they "weren't going to send them along with the brief of evidence anymore". I so wanted to get into a conversation with this officer (a sergeant who's name I took), but I bit my tongue and only replied with "with all due respect, anything you wish to discuss, be it a question or otherwise, must be done in writing". Well, his response was amazing! He said he was "going to have a long hard look at my case because the queue for traffic court hearings was nearing 12 months or more and positive prosecution outcomes are becoming increasingly difficult". Again, I said I wasn't prepared to comment over the phone, so he went on to say that he "was recently issued a speed camera infringement and is absolutely adamant he is innocent" and asked me if the Aussie Speeding Fines Ebook was any good because he intends to purchase one! I then KNEW that he was fishing, but I didn't let him hook me. All I said was I didn't know what he was talking about, so he went and gave me your website address! I NEVER let on that I was using your Ebook and said "thank you sir, I will go have a look when I get a chance".
So, there you have it, the police themselves admitting that the very same, specific problems that we details in our e-book (lack of shielded power supply) are problems that they are not only aware of, but sick of!
They further admit that these devices do NOT comply with the National Measurement Act and that they are also aware of the issues in regards to the photos from speed cameras and the flawed MD5 algorithm.
This Sergeant also admits that so many people are now successfully fighting back with our information that there is around a 12 month waiting time for court dates and the police themselves admit that they are losing more and more cases!
And finally, the fact that the police Sergeant asked OUR Member what he thought of the Aussie Speeding Fines system - because he wanted to get our e-book to get off an unjust fine he had received himself - really just sums it all up perfectly.
So, if like the Sergeant in this e-mail, you would like to arm yourself with our licence saving information, then please go to our Memberships page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and join up now.
And remember, this e-mail also proves that you do NOT always have to go to court to defeat an unjust fine, you CAN still win simply by using some of our 25 pro-forma letters that come with EVERY version of our e-book.
So, it has obviously taken us a bit of time but the momentum is REALLY starting to build now and testimonials such as this prove it beyond ALL doubt. So, if you’d like to do your bit to help spread the word and help inform and educate other motorists about the TRUTH about the current corrupt and unjust system then please forward this e-mail onto EVERYONE in your contacts list.
Also, we still have business cards and bumper stickers available – free of charge – to anyone that would like to help us get the message out there – that the motorists of this country have had enough of incorrect and unjust fines and the ridiculous revenue raising system that we are currently being subjected to. Please e-mail us your postal address and let us know how many stickers and/or cards you would like and we will send some out to you.
We would like to publicly thank the Member who sent this e-mail through and we would also, once again, like to pass on our continued thanks to ALL of you for your on-going support and for fighting back and making e-mails like this one a reality!
As always, take care out there,

Latest case precedents proving that our information WORKS!
Following on from our recent e-mail where we provided links to a number of reports of speed cameras being torched in the U.K. it now appears that people are resorting to the same tactics here in Australia. Please read the following story for further details: http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25918908-29277,00.html
Again, we MUST point out that we do NOT condone this kind of behavior in any way. Having said that, we must obviously point out that if people are prepared to go to these lengths to get the message across - that the general motoring public no longer agrees with the speed camera policy -then perhaps it is well and truly time that the various state governments took notice of these kind of actions and did what we are asking them to do on our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - and remove all these illegal, revenue raising cameras from our roads!
Did we say "revenue raising" cameras and not "safety" cameras - as these agencies would have you believe? Yes, absolutely! And, although we can't imagine ANYONE reading these updates to doubt that for a minute, should you be passing these e-mails onto newcomers to our information then they may still be blinded by the media propaganda so let us remove those blinkers. Please read the following story and hopefully you will be as outraged by the figures mentioned as the people torching cameras in the story above!
It is statements like the 3rd paragraph that we have been fighting all along! If these cameras really ARE the deterrent that the media and the police would have us believe then how on earth do they BUDGET for a specific amount? According to their own lies, the presence of these cameras, and the fact that their locations are widely publicised, should mean that they receive NO revenue. BUT, the fact that these cameras are fundamentally FLAWED and will book you even if you always drive past them BELOW the speed limit is the key to uncovering their lies and deception!
We would urge you ALL to contact the author of this story and then write to the un-named "government spokesperson" who made the ridiculous closing comment and ask him/her to PROVE their wild and baseless claim that speed is a factor in over 30% of fatal crashes - especially given the statistics on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - which show that speed is only a factor in 5% of crashes!
So, now that you know the TRUTH, that these speed detection devices are ONLY there to raise revenue and have NOTHING to do with road safety, then what else can you do? Well, first and foremost, you can click the following link and become a Member - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and then you can fight back against these unjust and unlawful fines like some of our current Members have.
In the past few weeks, we have received a number of new testimonials - which we will be adding to our Testimonials page shortly - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html In the meantime, you may want to have a quick look over some of the latest case histories that our Members have sent us.
The first one is from a Member who used our information and went all the way to court, only to be told that he had no case to answer to because the readings from the devices - as we have said all along - are NOT admissible in court, if you present our information correctly:
"Dear Aussie speeding fines....I did it. I beat the bastards at their own game. I followed the E book, delayed my case for 11 months adjourned it twice. I defended myself all the way through and today had the ruling of "no case to answer". The judge said that "the notorious scientific devices" readings are not admissible in a court of law and their reading void. The officers estimation of my speed be it 50kmh, 50.0002kmh or 150kmh could not be legally verified. I was awarded $200 in compensation.
As far as I am concerned, until I read the E book I would have probably just given in. The only reason I decided to fight was because you guys told me I could, showed me not only how to do it but for minimum expense and a little effort.
Thank You so much and if there is anything I can supply you with re my case, paperwork etc, please feel free to ask and you shall receive ;-) Please let all our members know about this ruling if you possibly can and I will send in the letter I receive as and when I get one from the WA police ;-)"
The next one is from a Member who fought long and hard against a local council over a parking fine and they eventually dropped it when he elected to have the matter heard in court:
Just a quick note to let you know, and I hope you will let everyone else know -------"ANOTHER WINNER" Yes, we won the fight against another illegal parking ticket, using the 3 step process and the court election documents - YIPPEEE.
Please feel free to use the attached document from Stonnington Council to tell people don't give up - they have tried everything to get me to pay, but the court letter did the trick.
I am still fighting with Victoria Police over a red light camera infringement and I have just received the Infringments Court docs today, I have already posted the court election docs with them (registered of course) and I will keep you informed on that one as well.
Keep going guys - we will beat the bastards yet!"
This is the reply from Stonnington City Council upon receipt of our court election letter:
"Thank you for your Court application regarding the above ticket issued by the City of Stonnington.
The Prosecution's officer has re-examined your case and at their discretion, has decided not to proceed with any Court action against this matter.
The matter is now finalised and no further action is required on your behalf."
And, this 3rd letter is from a Member who successfully beat the Queensland Police. Now, for those of you not living in Queensland, it is worth noting that QLD Police go to GREAT lengths to scare people off from going to court. They threaten people with all kinds of ridiculous and un-enforceable fees and additional costs etc.
The following letter shows that it is ALL rubbish and even the supposedly "un-beatable" Queensland Police can also be COMPREHENSIVELY beaten using our information. This letter is even more powerful considering the huge excess of speed concerned (169 in a 110 zone) - which our Member was obviously NOT doing. It goes to show just how far out their so-called "accurate scientific devices" really can be:
I'm happy to say I won my case re Speeding fine in Qld, (169km in a 110km zone, Hire Car).
Thank you for your advice.
In the end the case crumbled as we found that the Queensland Police had not correctly issued the summons upon me.
The magistrate found that under the State Penalty Enforcement Act, section 116. (1) (a) (What is required to accompany summons) and 119. (3), 121. (2) (Notice to Accompany Summons) the summons was issued without notification in some way given to me prior to the summons or accompanying the summons.
Qld Police argued that the Stat Dec from the Hire Car Company was sufficient under some section of the Transport (Road Use Management) Act 1995. Qld Police mentioned that the Transport Management Act said if there was inconsistencies with the two said acts then the T.M.A would prevail.
Magistrate begged to differ and went through to explain to the police that the two Acts are meant to be read in addition to each other or overplayed rather than being subject to inconsistencies and favouring one. They were to be read in conjunction with one another.
Therefore it was found that the summons was not issued correctly and there was no case to answer. So I didn't even get to submit my defence."
Okay, so know you know that our information really DOES work, despite what certain other websites out there suggest and you now know that you really DO need to become a Member and you really DO need to share this information with EVERYONE you know who drives on our roads. The next thing to ensure is that you get our information in a TIMELY manner.
We still receive way too many e-mails from people that say things like "Oh, if only I knew about your information a week ago, a month ago, a year ago etc. then ......"The best time to get our information is BEFORE you get a fine! It is always a great feeling to fight back against a fine that you KNOW you didn't commit and win but how much simpler is it to use our information - as the Member below did - and avoid all the time, hassle and effort of fighting a fine when, by simply using our information at the time of being pulled over, you can avoid the fine altogether!
Just thought a quick note of appreciation was in order for all you hard work and effort both in your book and online.
Having purchased your e-book, I was delighted to be pulled over for speeding in the truck the other day. As the police approached the cab I was thinking about the info in the e-book.
I almost cracked up laughing when they asked me why I was doing 128km in a 100km zone. It was so funny because the truck is a new Volvo and has a speed limit of 101km per hour. This is a factory standard software application that cannot be modified.
A long annoying debate ensued and they eventually left me alone, but as they went to walk away they couldn't help but to say.....just slow it down ok!!"
So, there you have it. Our information works EXACTLY as we have said it does for well over 2 years now. The fact that we have in excess of 10,000 Members and Subscribers to our service and simply the fact that we are still here helping Members EVERY day should be proof enough of that.
So, please help spread the word and put an end to the ridiculous revenue raising system that we all been subjected to for far too long now.
Speaking of which, we have just had a new batch of business cards and bumper stickers made up so if you would like us to send you some at no charge then please e-mail us your address and let us know how many bumper stickers and/or business cards you would like and we will send them out your way.
Thanks again for all your continued support and know that we TRULY are making a difference out there now!
As always, stay safe out there,

More info from Dr Brittain and bumper stickers are now ready
Well, in case you haven't seen our previous e-mails confirming that NO speed detection device currently in use in Australia conforms to Section 10 of the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth), we have further information from Dr Brittain below. In the meantime, we would suggest taking a look over our News/Updates page at http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News-%26amp%3B-Updates.html to read over some of the last e-mails we sent on this subject, as well as bringing yourself up to speed with all previous updates.
Another one of our Members has written to Dr Brittain regarding the fact that no speed detection device either conforms to the above-mentioned Act, nor does any device have any exemption from its Federal requirements to comply with this Act. Please see the e-mail below for further details:
Dear Mr ????,
I refer to our phone conversation of today and your letter of 23 May 2009.Further to the questions you raise I would make the following responses:
1.No vehicle-speed measuring devices are exempt from the provisions of the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth) (the Act) including 'any of the Gatsometer brand/make radar speed measuring devices'.
2. On the basis of my answer to 1) above the enquiry as to the reason(s) for exemption is otiose.
3. On the basis of my answer to 1) above the enquiry as to where an exemption certificate may be obtained is also otiose. Further, there are no facilities in the above legislation or any other legislation that I am aware of for the issue of such certificate of exemption (however described).
4. The exemptions detailed in your letter are exemptions to the trade measurement provisions of the Act. These came from the exemptions in the current State and Territory Uniform Trade Measurement Legislation which will become part of the Act commencing from 1 July 2009 to facilitate the transfer of responsibility for trade measurement from the States and Territories to the Commonwealth from 1 July 2010.They are currently listed in the notes at the end of the Act for information.
By way of further background to the Act I would make the following points:
5. The Act facilitates the national technical infrastructure. This facilitates Australian compliance with its international treaty obligation wrt measurement and enables stakeholders to make measurements which are traceable to the standards of measurement maintained by the Commonwealth acting through the NMI. These standards enable measurements in terms the Australian legal units of measurement to be realised and promulgated.
6. Whilst the Act provides the means of making legally traceable measurements as detailed above it does not presently mandate their use other than for demonstrating traceability of measurements made for a legal purpose when the necessity arises.
This communication is provided entirely without prejudice and nothing it constitutes legal advice either express or implied.
I trust that the above information satisfies your enquiry.

Now, to save Dr Brittain from receiving another thousand or so e-mails and letters from our current database of Subscribers and Members - which now exceeds 10,000 people in the two and a half years that we have been operating - we would instead remind you of the upcoming Federal case being run by Darryl O'Brian and the Community Law Resource Group. Again, as mentioned in previous update e-mails - which can be re-visited on our News/Updates page - Darryl is organising for ALL speed measuring devices to be removed from service until they comply with the National Measurement Act - something that can't obviously be done as they don't actually have the specifications to correctly test and certify these devices against.
Darryl has asked us to remind you that Dr Brittain will actually be a witness in this upcoming case and has asked us to provide you with the following information:
DONATIONS REQUIRED TO FUND A FEDERAL COURT HEARING TO BRING SPEED DETECTING DEVICES IN ALIGNMENT WITH COMMONWEALTH LAW.
This is in your interest whether you support speed detecting devices or not.
We as a society expect all measuring instruments to comply with a strict set of standards so we can be assured fairness in all walks of life. This is an underlying principle that has been inherited for as long as man has walked this earth and conducted business with his or her neighbour.

So please, if you are able to assist Darryl in any way, please don't hesitate to contact him via his website at www.communitylawresourcegroup.info/ or on 0407 341 366
And should you still be in ANY doubt as to why all speed detection devices need to be removed from our roads, especially speed cameras, then we would urge you to visit our on-line petition page to learn how speed cameras actually INCREASE accidents - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html
As most of you would be well aware, these devices are nothing more than revenue raising instruments and there was yet another story in the media recently about a double camera set up in Sydney and the speed limit was conveniently reduced by 10 km/h.
You can read this story for yourself below and you will note that there are NO figures provided that indicate ANY reduction in the road toll as a result of the introduction of this camera or the decrease in the speed limit yet there are some VERY clear figures in respect to the amount of revenue it is raising.
Please pass this onto to anyone and everyone you know who drives on our roads because it really is time for the motoring public to start fighting back and sending a clear message that we will no longer simply sit by and allow the government to continue robbing us of our hard earned money under the completely FALSE guise of "road safety".
Speaking of helping fight back, we know it has been a while but our bumper stickers are FINALLY ready and we will be picking them up first thing next week. So if you would like to place a sticker on your car, truck, trailer etc. then please e-mail us your postal address and the number of stickers you are after and we will send them out for you at no charge first thing next week.
We have also just had a another run of business cards made up so if you haven't yet received business cards from us and would like to help spread the word or if you need a top up, then please e-mail us your postal address and we will send a bunch your way.
And finally, we provided links to a number of videos in our recent e-mail update that showed how easy it was to CREATE a FALSE reading from a hand held device such as radar or laser - again, check our News/Updates page in case you missed these e-mails. We have been sent yet another video by one of our Members - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulmK6Iz0x58 - that shows a speed detection expert being interviewed and explaining in DETAIL how flawed the speed detection readings from hand held devices are - which, of course, is something that we have said all along in our e-book, as well as explaining exactly how to fight back against these false, unjust and ridiculous fines.
It is interesting that even the manufacturer's representative acknowledges the possibility of errors and refers to the exact user manuals that we provide to all Members in our e-book.
The best bit is the short video clip that is shown at the end and they admit the figures are all wrong yet they also state that this is the same video footage they show in court to convict people. Keep in mind that a photo taken from a speed camera at any given instant works in EXACTLY the same way. So, if any agency says that they have a photo or video footage of you speeding then you can simply refer to this video and ask them to explain it!
So, if you're not yet a Member then please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and join up now and, once again, we would urge you to pass this onto EVERYONE in your Contacts list to we can finally put an end to this ineffective and corrupt revenue raising system! Also, please read over our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - so that you FULLY understand what we are trying to achieve by this website and our e-book.
Thanks again to all of you for your continued support and for having the courage to fight back and, as always, stay safe out there.

Some info on what NOT to do!
In our last mailout, we gave you a few ideas of what you could do to help remove the current regime of unjust and unlawful speed detection devices from our roads.
This week, we want to share with a few ideas of what NOT to do.
Firstly, we were sent the following article by one of our Members - http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25785818-29277,00.html It explains how speed camera operators are being attacked in their cars.
Now, this is not the first time we have reported such stories and we doubt it will be the last. Of course, we don't, in any way, condone this sort of action but it clearly begs the question "Why are people SO frustrated that they would go to such extremes?" And, more importantly, given that the government agencies were voted in by "us", to do OUR bidding, why are they totally ignoring the will of the people and bringing in MORE of these devices?
Remember, the police, the politicians and the RTA's etc are all there to serve "us", we the people. Unfortunately, it seems as though "we the people", as well as the agencies concerned, have long forgotten this simple fact. Clearly, the general motoring population no longer believes in the speed camera program anymore and it must be stopped.
For those who haven't yet seen it or signed it, we have our on-line petition to remove all speed cameras from service in this country - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html
But, these are only the initial steps and the state governments of this country and their minions should be put on notice that if they don't take heed of our more subtle approaches then things may get out of hand - as they have clearly done in the U.K.
Motorists are so fed up in the U.K. that people have united and taken things into their own hands and the results can be seen in the following link: http://www.speedcam.co.uk/gatso2a.htm
It's a wonder with that many cameras being destroyed that there are any left in service at all - perhaps that was the point!
Now, we obviously do NOT condone this type of behavior in any way, shape or form. However, the time has well and truly come for the governments to be reminded that they work for us, NOT the other way around and we will no longer tolerate being blackmailed and extorted to the tune of ONE BILLION DOLLARS a year by an unjust, unlawful and completely INEFFECTIVE system that does all but NOTHING to reduce the road toll.
And, as is unfortunately more often the than not the case in life, the simplest way to get your message across is through someone's hip pocket. That is precisely why we created our e-book, to show you step-by-step how to fight back and NEVER pay an unjust and unlawful traffic fine again. Let's get together and send a UNITED message to these agencies that we will no longer be paying these ridiculous fines and we will do whatever is necessary - send letters, clog up the court system, overwhelm the administration and ultimately, send NO more money to these agencies and FORCE them into taking notice of our message!
So, if you're not yet a member or you know someone who hasn't yet joined then please go to our Memberships page at http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and join up NOW.
Our cause is gaining momentum more and more each day. Stories like the ones outlined in this e-mail are becoming more and more frequent and the general population is now making it crystal CLEAR that they have now had ENOUGH!
So, please look over our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html -and arm yourself with the truth about the current ineffective system and the ideas and strategies that we would like to see implemented instead that truly will make our roads a safer place to be for ALL Australians.
Finally, we wrote to you last week and informed you of Darryl O'Bryan and the Community Law Resource Group's Federal Court Case to force all speed detection devices to be properly certified - which they can't be - and a number of you have written to us pledging your support for Darryl and his upcoming case.
We have spoken to Darryl and he has confirmed that the case is being run by a well respected Barrister and that all funds donated will be held in the Barrister's trust fund for use as required as the case progresses. So, this is a VERY worthy cause it is being professionally run so we would urge you all to get in contact with Darryl via the details below and do what you can to support him. He can be contacted via his website www.communitylawresourcegroup.info/ or by phone 0407 341 366. If any of you missed last week's e-mail with the full details of the case, please let us know and we will forward a copy to you.
Speaking of which, a number of Members have mentioned that they missed a few of our e-mail updates here and there so we are in the process of putting all these update e-mails back on-line again so you can access them whenever you need to. We are still a few days away from completing the process so please check back at http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News-%26amp%3B-Updates.html regularly to ensure that you are kept up to date. This way, if you have missed any of our e-mails or if you have only recently joined our site then you can ensure that you are kept well informed as new information comes to light. This is also a great link to send to family, friends and colleagues to show them what we are doing and to also demonstrate the regular contact we have and the efforts we go to, to provide as much FREE information as we can.
As always, we appreciate your on-going support and please, stay safe out there!
July 14, 2009
What you can do NOW to help make a difference
Okay, enough is now SERIOUSLY enough. It is time to take action NOW before we wake up and find ourselves well and truly in the grip of a complete Police State!
Now, whether you live in Victoria or not, it would be hard to have missed hearing something about the ridiculous number of new speed cameras they are about to roll out across the state. And, don't for one minute think that this rollout will be limited to Victoria because, we can all but guarantee that other states will follow suit shortly. Remember, Victoria is the guinea pig state with the lowest speed tolerances across the country - they see what they can milk the motorists of Victoria for and what they can get away with there and then implement similar systems in other states.
In case you somehow missed it and are not yet up to date with what's in store, please read the following article from Melbourne's Herald Sun newspaper: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,,25766718-2862,00.html
Now, we have said it a hundred times before but we'll say it again. If these ridiculous cameras actually do what the media and police claim - which is cause people to slow down and therefore supposedly reduce the road toll then how exactly is it that they already know how much money they are going to earn from these unjust and unlawful devices? It's right there in the heading of the story!
The fact is that cameras do NOT reduce the road toll and, if you haven't read it for yourself yet, please go to our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html and read the articles that prove that these cameras actually INCREASE accidents!
If you want even FURTHER proof of this, just think for a moment how many additional speed cameras have been put into service in NSW over the past 12 months and have a look at their road toll figures in the following link - http://www.police.nsw.gov.au/community_issues/road_safety
Now, we have had similar statistics on our Vision for the Future page for quite some time now and a couple of Members have noted that the links no longer worked. So, we have now updated those broken links and you can see for yourself the road toll statistics in your state and you will note that the road toll has NOT dropped significantly since the introduction of these "revenue raising" devices as the media and so-called "authorities" would have us believe. Please see the page below: http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
Please, just go back to the Herald Sun story and read it again - carefully. Twice they state that they "hope" it will reduce the road toll, yet they are VERY precise with how much extra revenue they will raise. Well, not if we have anything to do about it!
Our Members have been successfully fighting back against these ridiculous fines for well over 2 years now so, if you're not yet a Member then clearly NOW is the time to join because you can be all but guaranteed that you WILL receive an unjust and unlawful fine with all the new cameras and increased camera hours they have in store for you. Please visit our Memberships page for further details - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html
On a side note, they very kindly inform us in that article that they will be "upgrading 22 cameras to more efficient digital cameras". Now, anyone who has read our e-book understands the relevance of the flawed MD5 algorithm and how this is an absolute GIFT in respect to fighting these particular fines.
So, who would like to put some money on the table here and now that says that the road toll will NOT be significantly decreased over the next 6 months and, when the end of year figures come out the ONLY thing that will be significant is the additional revenue they have raised from these unjust and unlawful devices?
Better still, we received an e-mail from Darryl O'Bryan of the Community Law Resource Group. Now, like most Australian motorists, Darryl and his group have finally had enough of being ripped off by these ridiculous and ineffective cameras and he has decided to get out there and really DO something about it. So, please take a moment to read Darryl's e-mail below and please support him and his group in ANY way you can.
"We being the Community Law Resource Group are planning an application into the Federal Court of Australia, asking the court to declare that the State Police Forces, Australia wide, bring all their speed detecting devices into the National Measurement Institute, which is located in each capital city, for certification and that all operators of these devices be accordingly trained in the use of these devices according to Commonwealth law being the National Measurements Act 1960 (Cth).
This sort of action costs money and we are asking for people to contribute to the legal costs. We will be submitting all collected money into a trust account under the control of the Barrister who will be representing the case. We have an adequate amount of evidence and witnesses to bring this case into the courts so it will not be a waste of court time.
We need generous contributions and all contributors will have upon registration a good chance on our expected success on a full refund at the conclusion of the matter with an outlook to force the States to comply with Commonwealth law.
All contributors please log onto www.communitylawresourcegroup.info/ with your contact details so we can organise payment methods and a valid receipt. If you cannot logon to the website then please ring the chairman of the Community Law Resource Group, Darryl O'Bryan on 0407 341 366.
Evil Prevails when Good People do nothing."
Now, it is worth noting that one of the witnesses that Darryl and his group will be calling is Dr Britain, who many of you have e-mailed and/or contacted since he confirmed what we have been saying all along - that no speed detection device in Australia is legal.
Some of you may be thinking that this action seems somewhat self-defeating because, if Darryl and his group won then all the devices would eventually be certified and then we couldn't fight them anymore. But, as we have explained all along in our e-book, the problem is that they don't actually have the figures they need to calibrate them in accordance with the law and that is why they have never received certification to date and NEVER will.
So, whilst we're not affiliated with Darryl and his group, nor we do we receive anything for passing this on, we are aware of their work and they come HIGHLY recommended so please do WHATEVER you can to help and support them. If every person donated the equivalent of one speeding fine - which they could easily avoid paying with the information contained in our e-book - then we could have this whole mess sorted out before the end of the year.
And finally, due to the overwhelming support we have had from our Members, we have just had a new batch of business cards printed up so if anyone would like to hand out some cards for us or if you need a top up, please e-mail us and let us know.
And just quickly, on the topic of e-mails, please understand that we now have in excess of 10,000 Members and Subscribers so each time we send out one of these e-mail updates, we get totally SWAMPED with replies. So, please be patient as it can sometimes take us a few days to get back to everyone.
So thanks again for your continued support and we look forward to receiving some positive feedback from Darryl that you have all pitched in to help remove these ridiculous devices from our roads and ensure that we never have to read an article like that again.
As always, stay safe out there!

It’s time to see the truth with your own eyes
We are often asked about the accuracy of speed detection devices and how the police get away with using them if they are as inaccurate as we say they are. We always answer these questions and direct people to the relevant pages of the police training manuals which we provide in our e-book, so they can read the FACTS for themselves.
However, thanks to one of our Members passing it on, we can now actually direct you to a very short video that you can watch and actually SEE for yourselves much of what we explain in our e-book, in relation to these particular devices.
So, please take just 90 seconds to view the following video clip and, once you do, you will never doubt the validity of our information again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyMjtq3IodU
This video clearly shows that these devices can easily read completely FICTITIOUS speeds and, in fact, they way the police are trained to use these devices means that incorrect readings are almost inevitable.
Remember, our e-book gives you the EXACT wording from the ACTUAL training manuals themselves so you know PRECISELY how to question police in respect to these errors.
So, if you're not yet a Member or you know someone who is not yet a Member, please urge them to go to our Memberships page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - now and join so that they have all the information they need to defeat any and all unjust and unlawful traffic fines, including ones from hand held speed detection devices such as this.
Now, if you have a little more time, there are some other similar videos that are also worth watching, specifically this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHSBo3rwyFU&feature=related
This one is the Kustom Pro Laser III which is supposedly the most ACCURATE laser speed detection device currently on the market. Now, if the most accurate device shows a completely FALSE speed reading with NO vehicle around than what hope do the motorists of this country have against LESS accurate fixed speed cameras and the like?
The police will often testify - in cases involving these devices - that they heard a solid tone for 3 seconds and checked the speed and the speed was X and therefore they concluded that your vehicle was traveling at X speed and therefore you are guilty. Yet, this video shows a solid tone for 3 seconds and a reading of 25mph despite it being a completely EMPTY road!
Now, before you even ask, NO, you will not be able to show these videos in court to help make your case. What you CAN do though, is to ask the officer - under oath - if he is aware of these videos? Can he deny the existence of them? Can he deny that these false readings are possible?
If he tries to deny that then you can make a special request of the court to admit those videos as evidence but, if he doesn't deny them then you automatically have grounds to have the case dismissed based on reasonable doubt.
The same principle would apply to a speed camera fine. You would ask the same questions of the camera operator and then simply state that if the most accurate devices - the ProLaser III devices - have these inherent errors and we know that speed cameras actually have a higher tolerance for error, then once again, the case should be quickly dismissed.
More than anything, these videos should once and for all SILENCE those well-intentioned people who so WRONGLY believe that if you just drive around BELOW the speed limit then you are safe. Remember, that first video showed a speed reading of 88 MILES per hour on a completely EMPTY road!
The other key point to remember here is this doesn't even take into account the ADDITIONAL factors for error such as interference. These videos ONLY deal with the way these devices are used. They also don't deal with the fact that these devices don't have the requisite NSC certification and they don't comply with the National Measurements Act, which are further important legal factors. Now that you can see for yourselves the inherent problems these devices have you can begin to understand why, not only do they not have the requisite certification and compliance but why they can NEVER have it!
So, when you factor in the other possibilities for error - such as interference - you can understand why we say that these devices are fundamentally FLAWED and only get it right every now and again, as opposed to what most people believe, which is the other way around.
Which reminds us, we are sadly lacking in the area of signatures on our on-line petition to have all speed cameras removed from Australian roads so, if you haven't yet signed or, if you know someone who hasn't yet signed, please go to the link below and add your signature: http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html
And finally, should you have ANY doubts as to the effectiveness of our information or strategies for defeating ALL ineffective, unjust and unlawful traffic fines, please read over our Testimonials page and you will find stories from Members in every state who have effectively used our information to fight back against these ridiculous fines and WIN! http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
As always, thanks again for your continued support and stay safe out there!

Why you need our information NOW more than ever before
So, you don't think you need our information because you obey all the laws and never do anything wrong. Well, have we got some news for you!
Following on from the e-mail we sent a few weeks back, where we explained that the Victorian government was making around $400 million a year from traffic fine revenue, we were provided with a copy of the actual figures from the annual report itself.
If you download the following file - http://www.budget.vic.gov.au/CA25755B0004CE3B/WebObj/BP4_complete/$File/BP4_complete.pdf - and go to "Table 4.7 - Other Current Revenue" on page 290 you will see that total revenue from fines - just in Victoria alone - was $470 million.
Now just think about this for a moment. The population of Victoria is just over 5 million people. Obviously, not all of this revenue is just from traffic fines but then again, not every single person on Australia gets a fine of any type. So, just to work with averages for just a minute, that would equate to roughly $94 per person.
So, if are of driving age then you could safely assume that your $94 would come from a traffic fine. And, the reality is that most fines would be issued to people in the 18 - 55 bracket so your "fine quota" would likely be well in excess of $94. But, keep in mind, that figure is PER YEAR.
In fact, the same table estimates an increase of 7.6% in revenue from fines, equating to a total of $506 million dollars next year. This brings your "fine quota" up to around $100 PER YEAR. Remember, our e-book costs only $67 and you get free updates for LIFE, to help you fight any unjust and unlawful fine that you should receive EVER again! And, whilst our information is specifically targeted towards traffic fines, many of our Members have reported that they have successfully used or information to defeat many other types of unjust and unlawful fines too - such as failing to wear a bike helmet etc. (things that, like traffic fines, also harm and deprive no-one of anything at all and can't possibly be considered a crime as there is NO victim).
But, here's the kicker - fines are supposedly issued to help "educate" people to do the "right" thing. Now, either we're a population of complete dumb-asses and slow learners that insist on constantly doing the "wrong" thing OR there is a MAJOR problem with the current system of "fines" that needs to be drastically over-hauled!
After all, if these fines were "doing their job" then there would fewer fines issued each year as people "learnt their lesson" and, in respect to traffic fines, this would also mean that the road toll was going down each year. NEITHER of these things are happening.
Speaking of fines, after over 2 years helping thousands of Australians avoid unjust and unlawful traffic fines, we have decided to implement our own "fine" system! We're only half joking here but seriously, if we get another e-mail along the following lines, we're going to scream: "Hi Team, I got pulled over doing ..........Can the Police really do that?"
Now, it makes absolutely NO difference what you got pulled over for and it makes no difference what the Police did, you are asking the WRONG question! Clearly, the question is NOT "Can they do that?" - they already DID!!!! The question is, do you have a defence against it? Now, the answer to that question is always "definitely!"
So please, we are happy to answer any questions you might have but, to help us keep our sanity, please do us a huge favour and phrase the question correctly: "Hi Team, I got pulled over doing ....... and the Police did .......... In your opinion, what is my best defence against this?"
This will not only help us keep our sanity but, more importantly, it will help you start thinking correctly. You see, many motorists still have the fundamental belief that the Police are generally out there doing the right thing and only make a mistake every now and again - this is simply NOT true. The Police will do anything in their power and will go to extraordinary lengths to issue fines - they don't care what the consequences are because they don't have to face them!
Now, obviously, this is not ALL police but it IS almost ALL traffic cops. Again, we're not even blaming them personally - although a lot of them are simply out there on a huge ego trip. The problem is that they have been brain washed by "the system" into believing that they are actually doing the right thing.
Now, some of these issues can be as simple as not using a device correctly or using it in the wrong location and, as we have found out in court many times, this is because these Police officers have NOT been trained on the correct procedures for use of these devices. In fact, we can all but guarantee that, the Members of our website are more up to date with the procedures and use manuals than most Police officers out there because we provide all the relevant section of these manuals in our e-book and most of our Members review them every time they get a ticket to see what the officer did wrong in their particular case.
Police officers, on the other hand, read these guidelines ONCE, if at all, and then never review them again for their whole careers!
Now, we want to point out right here that this is NOT some kind of slur campaign on the police. Most police officers do a great job, traffic cops, however, are generally the exception and again, this is usually because they have been brainwashed into believing that "Speed Kills" and all the other crap just as we are. The difference is that it is drummed into them at work as well as at home on the TV.
We have been approached by a number of senior Police officers and none of them have been able to negate the statistics on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - which show that speed is only a factor in just 5% of accidents.
We have even had a number of Police officers sign our on-line petition to have all cameras removed - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - because they know that it is a strong police presence and booking motorists for HONESTLY doing the wrong thing that will actually change behavior, as opposed to random fines they have no bearing on actually doing the "wrong" thing.
We are finding that a lot more Police officers are now becoming enlightened to the truth though and this was highlighted in the recent Herald Sun report that we forwarded on a few months back where the majority of Police stated that they believed that cameras were just about revenue raising. In fact, there was a story in WA recently where the Police, in their attempt to earn more money themselves, of course, actually took action and placed their cars in front on speed camera to warn motorists about them.
http://www.thewest.com.au/default.aspx?MenuId=77&ContentID=145833 if you read this story you will see what they did in order to "send a message to the government". Now, this brings up a VERY interesting point, the Police obviously believe that they can send a message to the government by reducing their income from speed cameras - by warning motorists in advance.
Now, this is a very small scale version of what we are trying to achieve ourselves, in just one area of the country. What we are trying to do though is send a MASSIVE message to the government! We are encouraging EVERY single motorist in the country to object to, by not paying, EVERY single unjust and unlawful traffic fine that they receive. Now, if the Police can make an impact in WA by simply warning motorists of up-coming speed cameras then SURELY we can get a result by ensuring that NO Australian motorist pays an unjust and unlawful traffic fine ever again!
So, we urge you ALL to follow the steps in our e-book to fight back against ALL unjust and unlawful traffic fines and send a UNITED message that the motorists of Australia have HAD ENOUGH and they want to see strategies and systems implemented that really will REDUCE the road toll.
If you haven't yet done so, please read over our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - to find out what some of these more effective strategies are and also our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - to learn why the current strategies simply aren't working.
Obviously, if you are not yet a Member then we would urge you to go to the following page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and get our e-book BEFORE you receive a fine so that you are up to date with all the latest strategies for fighting back against the current corrupt and ineffective system.
Finally, we appreciate your continued support and we still have business cards available if anyone would like some to hand out. We hope to have the bumper stickers finalised in the very near future as well and we will let everyone know when they are available.
As always, take care out there and stay safe on our roads!

Major Breakthrough – Proof that you get fined even if you have done NOTHING wrong!
We were just about to send out our latest update but we had to put it on hold due to the following breakthrough story. Yes, it's THAT important that we stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to get this e-mail out to you all.
If you haven't yet seen it, please click the link below and select the 8th video entitled "Speed camera Justice" to view the story that aired on A Current Affair on Monday evening: http://video.msn.com/?mkt=en-au&brand=ninemsn&tab=m164
This story is EXTREMELY important because it proves what we have been saying ALL along - these agencies will send a fine to EVERY car in a particular photo even if there is NO way that car was speeding!
This is VITAL information as it proves, once and for all, that NO-ONE is safe from these unjust and unlawful fines - even if you ALWAYS drive well BELOW the speed limit. This report proves that, as long as you drive on our roads with other cars then you WILL eventually receive an unjust and unlawful fine, it is just a matter of WHEN.
If you look at the photos that Scott Copper shows the interviewer you will see that vehicles other than the one that was issued the fine have clearly set off the camera yet these agencies send a fine to EVERY vehicle they can identify in any given shot.
Not only that, but all of these photos are from dual carriage roads (one lane each way) so, extrapolate that out to 3 and 4 lane freeways and you will understand why the motorists in this country and handing over ONE BILLION dollars a year that they do NOT need to and why many INNOCENT motorists are on the verge of losing their licences and, quite possibly, their livelihoods! The truth of the matter is that this is all so easily avoidable if you are armed with the right information.
Please, if you only ever forward ONE e-mail of ours, we urge you to please pass this one onto EVERY person you know who drives in this country!
Our e-book has ALL the information you need to fight these unjust and unlawful fines so if you are not yet a Member then please go to our Memberships page below and join up now: http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html
Now, we're not aware of the full situation in respect to the particular lady interviewed but we do not believe that she is a Member of ours so please, do NOT be frightened off by the fact that she had to attend so many court cases and paid $2,000. Whilst we applaud her for standing up for her rights and fighting back, it appears as though did NOT use our information and made things MUCH harder for herself than they needed to be. She probably paid a lawyer to assist her and our e-book shows you step-by-step precisely how to fight these fines without spending a cent on legal fees and you will NOT need to go to court 5 times either.
In fact, you can read the MANY Testimonials from Members who have successfully fought these types of fines very simply by going to our Testimonials page below: http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
We receive many e-mails from people who try and tell us that "If you just obey the speed limit then you have nothing to worry about". The fact that cameras were turned off in Victoria not that long ago and tens of millions of dollars worth of fines were dropped proves that this is simply NOT true! This story, however, should leave you in NO doubt what-so-ever as to the strategies used by these unscrupulous agencies to simply RAISE REVENUE.
Also, if you have not yet done so, please go to our on-line petition page below which explains how these cameras actually INCREASE accidents. We MUST have these cameras removed from service so that MULTIPLE innocent drivers can STOP receiving fines when they have done NOTHING wrong: http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html
Now, we are still working on another important mail-out but we just HAD to get this information out to all of you FIRST.
So, we'll end this one here and again, we urge you to please pass this short e-mail onto EVERYONE you know who drives in this country as the motorists out there NEED to know what is going on and they need to be educated, informed and armed with the information to beat these ridiculous and ineffective fines.
As always, stay safe out there,
June 5, 2009
Time for some cold, hard speeding fine FACTS!
Firstly, we would like to clear up a few points from last week's e-mail. Whilst the whole point of sending you that e-mail was to confirm that all speed detection devices MUST conform to Section 10 of the National Measurement Act 1960 - and this was now confirmed by an independent expert in that field - this information is NOT new. Any of you who have read our e-book will know that we provide ALL the evidence you need to introduce this into court anyway - without using that e-mail.
Our e-book includes actual case history from the Wildlife and Fisheries case in the WA Supreme Court as well as an explanation of the National Measurement Act 1960 itself - direct from the National Standards Commission and also papers on the subject and reference materials from Dr Graham Harvey.
We have been getting questions from a number of people asking us "Can we use Dr Brittain's e-mail in court?" The answer is "No, you can't." By all means write to him yourself and ask a similar question and request the response in writing otherwise, use this information as it was intended, simply to further prove what we have said all along about this Act and it's relevance, despite numerous so-called "authorities" trying to suggest that it is irrelevant or has been tested and failed. You can contact the National Measurement Institute via the following link: http://www.measurement.gov.au/index.cfm?event=object.showIndexPage&objectID=80BD571B-BCD6-81AC-1AAACCB0300C01CD and just ask for Dr Brittain.
In the meantime, please refer to Chapter 6 of the e-book as this explains EXACTLY how this information is relevant, how to introduce it into court and why all devices MUST comply. Furthermore, we are aware that some agencies in some states are suggesting that they actually HAVE certification that meets Section 10. This is plain and simply NOT true as there is not a single speed detection device currently in use in Australia that carries the requisite NSC number (National Standards Commission) and, in fact, certificates can't actually be issued because the criteria for the devices to measure speed hasn't been arrived at yet and they can't test or certify the apparatus because the equipment to test them hasn't been devised either.
So, why all this focus by the agencies on trying to deceive the public into believing that these devices either comply, or don't need to comply, and we should all just "pay up"? Because, as we have said MANY times before, this is a BILLION dollar a year industry that is designed to fleece money from the innocent motorists of this country and funnel it into the government coffers.
In fact, if you look up the Road safety Act 1986 Section 1 (d) in Victoria - every other State has a similar section - it actually states that one of the purposes of the Act is; "To ensure the equitable distribution within the community of the costs of road use." Unfortunately, as we have also explained many times before that is NOT where the money from traffic fines goes, it simply goes back into buying more cameras to steal more money from innocent drivers!
This latest story from The Age newspaper in Melbourne shows just how much this is GROWING. In Victoria alone 4.2 million infringement notices were issued. At an average of $100 a ticket that is over $400 million in just Victoria alone!!! Please see the full story below: http://www.theage.com.au/national/want-to-beat-a-fine-join-the-police-force-20090604-bwhd.html
If you want to read the full Victorian Government report for yourself you can download it via the following link: http://www.audit.vic.gov.au/reports__publications/reports_by_year/2009/20090603_infringement.aspx and select the 4th option down the bottom - download pdf.
Now, we have said all along that whilst, at a stretch, you MIGHT be able to attribute speeding to something, possibly, maybe related to safety - although the statistics on our Vision for the Future page would suggest otherwise - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - parking fines could never in a million years be linked to anything to do with safety. Which, of course, is why so many police officers are "let off" these fines whilst the other poor motorists, who don't have our information and don't know any better, just continue to blindly pay them.
If you are not yet one of our informed and educated motorists, please go to our Memberships page and join up now so that you too can avoid these ridiculous, unjust and ineffective fines, just like the police do - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html
Okay, moving on. Many of you have complained to us about those ridiculous TAC ads "Pictures of you" and the like. In fact, we have asked people to write into Consumer Affairs expressing their concern about those clearly mis-leading ads. It is ridiculous that agencies like Consumer Affairs can complain about our website, suggesting that our information doesn't do what we say it does, despite the hundreds of Testimonials to the contrary - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - yet they will allow the TAC to run ads with statements that they simply CAN'T back up! Any suggesting that "Speed is the biggest killer on our roads" when there is NO factual evidence to back this up is nothing short of blatant lies and deception.
Instead, one of our Members sent us how the TAC ads SHOULD look: http://www.boreme.com/boreme/funny-2005/speed-think-p1.php
Also, we have received a TON of e-mails about the new cameras that have been installed in Melbourne and everyone is worried about these new cylindrical cameras that can supposedly effectively cover 3 lanes of road and all the rest of the hype and rubbish that the so-called "authorities" put out to try and scare people. The e-mail is usually headed "F.Y.I. New speed cameras"/"New speed camera alert" or similar.
Here is a link to some of the new technology behind these devices: http://www.ceos.com.au/products/tirtl-content.htm
Please keep in mind that, like ALL speed detection devices, these new cameras also do NOT conform to the requirements of the National Measurement Act and, furthermore, the cameras that are being connected are digital cameras which means that the flawed MD5 algorithm principle applies and the photos from these devices can be excluded from evidence.
Now, those of you who are Members will understand exactly what we are talking about here. If this all makes no sense to you then again, please grab a copy of our e-book and you will understand why NO photos from ANY camera can be used as evidence against you in court - if you present our information correctly. For speed and red light camera infringements this means that without a photo they have NO evidence against you and therefore there is NO case to answer to. Again, our Memberships page is http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html if you haven't yet joined.
Once again, we MUST stress that speed cameras do NOT help reduce the road toll. In fact, research has shown that speed and red light cameras actually INCREASE accidents. Now, we know this sounds like a big claim but please go to our on-line petition page and read the FACTS before making your final decision on this matter - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html
In fact, one of our Members actually sent us a link to an interesting radio program that explains what we have said all along - it is distraction, not paying attention and not focusing that causes accidents and virtually nothing to do with speeding. Click the following link – www.abc.net.au/rn/scienceshow - and download the 4 part series "Cars - the Crunch!" (on each of the last 4 Saturdays) and listen to what people in "the field" have to say about TRUE road safety.
And finally, a story from our friends across the great wet divide - New Zealand. Before you read this story from TVNZ, just be aware that they use EXACTLY the same cameras, procedures and technology there as we do here. So, any problems they are experiencing there, you can be assured our "agencies" are having the same issues here - they're just NOT letting you know about it!!!
As always, we thank you all for your continued support and for sending through reports like these that we don't always come across ourselves. A number of you have asked about business cards and bumper stickers. We hope to have the bumper stickers ready in the next week or so and we have had more business cards printed up. So we will e-mail everyone to let them know when the bumper stickers are ready and, in the meantime, if anyone wants some business cards to hand out or put on their counter at work, please e-mail us your address and let us know if you need a desktop holder or not and we will post them out you.
Thanks again and enjoy and stay safe this long weekend!

Major speeding fine breakthrough!
Okay, this e-mail is going to be short but oh so sweet!
Before we get into the exciting new breakthrough we would like to firstly thank all of your for the amazing response to our last e-mail. We had so many people offering to hand out business cards - either personally or via their business - that we had to go and get more cards printed. So, if you asked for some Aussie Speeding Fines business cards and haven't received them yet, please be patient, they are on their way. We got a bunch of extras printed up so if there's anyone else that would like to hand out cards or stick one of our card holders full of cards on their counter then please let us know and we will send them to you free of charge - just be sure to include your name and mailing address in the e-mail.
Also, we got some REALLY great marketing and promotional ideas and we are slowly but surely making our way through them. A number of you have suggested that you were interested in having us make up some bumper stickers so that's something we are working on. A number of truck and van drivers have said they are interested in helping us in this way as well so again, if anyone else is interested, please let us know and we will let everyone know in a separate mailout when we have them all ready.
Okay, so, onto the exciting breakthrough! One of our Members sent us an e-mail this week which has further confirmed, in writing - from an independent and authoritative source - that the National Measurements Act DOES, in fact, apply to ALL speed detection devices - despite many "agencies" suggestions to the contrary. Please see the details of the e-mails below. Please note that the surname of the Member who initiated this has been removed to protect his identity and yes, his first name really is Jim.
To Whom it may concern,
I would like to know if the speed measuring devises used by the police are exempt from the National Measurement Act 1960 (cth) and if so, why and where can I get the exemption certificate that proves that fact.
As far as I can see the only exemptions are:
a) A quantity of reticulated electricity, reticulated gas or reticulated water
b) Charges relating to telephone calls
c) The fare payable for use of a taxi
d) The charge for the hire of a motor vehicle
e) Tyre pressures
f) The expiration of the time for parking a motor vehicle
Your response would be appreciated
And this was the all important reply that he received:
Dear Mr ??????? (Jim),
I refer to your e-mail of 3 May 2009 to our Trade mailbox and confirm as follows:
1. Speed measuring devices are not exempt from the provisions of the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth).
2. There is no exemption certificate attesting to the above.
I trust that this information satisfies your enquiry
Dr Richard Brittain LLB
Executive Officer, Legal Metrology
National Measurement Institute
Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research
Now, if you don't appreciate the MASSIVE impact of this information and how it relates to ALL speeding fines then clearly, you do not have our e-book so please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and order your copy NOW!
Obviously, if you DO have our e-book then you will understand that this confirms what we have said all along and ALL these unjust and unlawful devices (speed cameras - mobile and fixed; radar devices - car mounted and hand held; and hand held laser) MUST all comply with Section 10 of this Act and they DON'T! Any suggestion by a Magistrate or Judge that these devices do not need to comply or that section of the Act is irrelevant can be IMMEDIATELY countered with this information.
This is a HUGE breakthrough for our Members and we would like to send out a huge "Thank You" to Jim for initiating this correspondence and for passing it on to us so that we can then pass it on to you. This is EXACTLY the type of information and update that we provide our Members FREE for life so if anyone doubts the value of our product for even a moment, this should well and truly cover that!
We're still working on answering e-mails from last week so we're going to keep this e-mail direct and to the point and sign off here.
Thanks again to all of you for your continued support and, as always, stay safe out there!

What else can we do?
We know we had a bit of a whinge a month or so back and we know we said we wouldn't do it again - especially after all the incredible support and feedback we received - but we're really at a loss as to what to do. So, hopefully this won't come across as a whinge, as such, but more an urgent request for ideas.
People often ask us why we charge what we do for the e-book and we explain that one of the largest costs that we have is our advertising and promotional costs - in an effort to get our information out to as many people as possible BEFORE they get a fine.
As we explain on our website, our e-book will help you no matter what stage you are at with your fines - you may not have received one and just want to prepare yourself for the inevitable (which is the BEST position to be in), you may have received one yesterday or a week ago or, you may even have a very old one that hasn't been paid. The key is that we can help you with ANY unjust and unlawful traffic fine as long as you HAVEN'T paid it. But, once you have paid it there is absolutely NOTHING that we, or anyone else, can do for you.
We have lost track of the number of e-mails where people say "Oh, it's too hard to fight, I can't be bothered, I'll just pay the fine." But, they say this without understanding the FULL ramifications of making such a decision - such as the loss of demerit points and the effect it has on your insurance. Conversely, we have made it as simple as the so-called "justice" system allows for people to fight back against these unjust and unlawful fines and WIN. We show you how to avoid paying a fine, in many cases, by simply writing a couple of letters and, if that doesn't apply to your particular fine, then we show you how to fight simply and easily - at NO cost - and win in court.
We explain how the so-called "authorities" will try and scare you into turning up to court, simply to waste your time, and we explain when you do need to turn up and when you don't. We explain why you can simply defend yourself without wasting any money on useless lawyers, that are only there to protect the integrity of "the system" anyway and how, even if you were to lose, it still wouldn't cost you a cent extra anyway. We explain how easy it is to drag a case on for anywhere up to 18 months (even longer in some cases) and the many benefits of utilising strategies such as this to A) keep your hard earned money in your pocket for longer and B) enable you to get demerit points back on your licence that you had previously lost - as well as a host of other benefits, not least of which is to help fill up the court system so that EVERYONE wins.
Unfortunately, despite all the lengths we go to, despite all the free information and statistics we provide on our website and despite the full money back guarantee that we offer, people still don't get our e-book straight away. Now, in 90% of cases, this won't really be an issue but, in that other 10% of cases, it can be a HUGE issue.
We just get far too many e-mails like the one below and honestly, they are simply heartbreaking to receive. Firstly, because of the predicament that this person is now in but, secondly, and more importantly, because it was SO easily avoidable.
Now, we obviously can't provide specifics regarding the sender of this e-mail but we swear to you that we received the e-mail below just today. And, unfortunately, we get a similar e-mail at least once or twice a month:
Hi, I have been hit with another speed fine from the same school zone camera. This is twice, the last was in January I just paid that last week. Now I get another ticket from the 5th may!
What can I do, I have lost my license for sure as I had only 2 points left last week!
I have seen the photo, it is me , but how do they know the speed limit!
P.S. I have 5 kids and a business to run, I am the only bread earner.
This e-mail is word for word, it has not been altered in ANY way, other than to remove the identity of the writer. Now, this person would obviously NOT be in this position if they had our e-book in January. But, like way too many people, they didn't have our information and they just blindly paid the fine and now they're suffering way more stress than they need to. Sure, our e-book will still help them beat this current fine but now they're driving around on tender hooks, worrying about every camera, everywhere because they only have 2 points left on their licence. This was just SO easy to avoid though and we are going out of our minds trying to get this message across to people.
The reality is that, for this person to be "done" twice by the same camera in such a short period of time means that it was, in all likelihood, yet another one of the notoriously FAULTY cameras out there. Worse still, no amount of slowing down, watching your speedo instead of the road or, any similarly stupid suggestion, is going to help. They, like others, will continue to get UNFAIRLY booked when they have done NOTHING wrong!
Who has this person hurt? Who have they deprived of ANYTHING? They haven't! They are yet another INNOCENT motorist, going about their daily duties - with kids of their OWN (so they KNOW how important it is to drive carefully in a school zone) - yet they have been unfairly fined and now face the prospect of losing their licence, their job and their livelihood.
When is the government going to get it? When are the motorists of this country going to get it??? Speed cameras create infinitely MORE issues and problems than they solve!
What more can we do?
We give free statistics, we explain our Vision for the Future and what we hope to achieve from all of this - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html
We provide a heap of free research on why speed cameras actually INCREASE accidents and we even set up a petition to have them removed -
We provide a number of different versions of the e-book to suit varying requirements and we make it is as simple to order and pay as possible by offering payment via Paypal as well as Mastercard and Visa (through our secure Paypal payment site) -
We even provide a FULL 30 day money back guarantee, no questions asked. Perhaps people don't realise but we have now been operating for over 2 years, we have around 10,000 Members and Subscribers yet we have only ever been asked for a refund a dozen or so times! If those statistics don't speak for themselves then we don't know what does!
Our information WORKS and we have a Testimonials page that is updated at least every month with new reports from our Members about their success with our strategies - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
How else can we promote our information?
We do extensive promotion through Google and similar search engines, we have Members who post our e-mails onto forums and we even provide a 33% commission to all affiliates so that you can actually EARN money by helping to promote us!
We really don't know what else to do but we are seriously frustrated by the e-mails that we receive along the lines of the one above. So, we're throwing it open to you - our Members and Subscribers. Please let us know if you have any cost effective (or cost free) ideas to help us get our information into the hands of the people who REALLY need it, BEFORE it is too late.
A number of people have suggested bumper stickers and we are happy to have those made up if there are people out there that would like to put them on their cars or trucks. Maybe some of you have some suggestions for the wording.
We also have business cards that we can supply in plastic desk top holders if anyone has a motoring related businesses and they could put our card holders on their front counter. We also have loose business cards if anyone feels like handing them out in the street, at universities etc. If either of these ideas appeal or suit you please e-mail us your address and we will post them out to you free of charge.
We have our Seminar DVD and we know that a number of Members have contacted us for permission to screen the DVD at their own seminars and/or meetings. We are more than happy for this to happen so again, if you're in that position, please let us know.
Other than that, we are at a bit of a loss as to how else we can promote our information without it costing considerably more than it already is. Obviously media advertising simply costs too much and, as we have seen in the past, the free TV promotion such as a Current Affair etc. tend to just twist things around to suit their angle anyway.
So, we throw the floor open to all of you and we welcome your ideas, suggestions and assistance. If any of you have ANYTHING at all to put forward, please do so.
We should say at this point that we are hoping for a large response to this e-mail so please be patient with us. As always, we WILL answer every e-mail but please understand that this will hopefully generate a great response and so it may take some time to get back to everyone.
So, on that note, we welcome you to put on your thinking caps and see what you come up with. If nothing else, please pass this e-mail onto EVERYONE in your Contacts list and urge them to please do the same.
Our greatest desire is to NEVER receive an e-mail like the one we have included in this e-mail so please help us to make that a reality and ensure that, should we HAVE to receive an e-mail like that again, it is at least NOT one of your friends, family members or work colleagues.
As always, stay safe out there and thanks again for your continued support,

More poof of revenue raising – as if you needed it
Well, it has been another crazy week here at ASF and it seems as though every time we send out an e-mail update we create a new mountain of work for ourselves answering the responses we get. It is becoming a very fine line between keeping in regular contact with you all via our mailouts - to keep you up to date and informed - and then having to answer all the questions that we get a as a result. It's almost as if we send out an e-mail and we then spend a week answering replies to that e-mail and then it's time to send out the next update. This, obviously, doesn't leave us much time to continue our research in between times - hence why we are sending this out late on a Sunday afternoon!
We are still working very hard on completing the next official e-book update but this is becoming increasingly difficult with the extra workload. Also, each time we think we are close to getting it all together, someone sends through another great idea for us to research. Anyway, we're still doing the best we can so please be patient with us and we will continue to answer all your e-mails in a timely manner, as best we can, and know too that we are still working on the next major e-book update.
In the meantime, a few Members have sent us a couple of links which go to prove everything that we have been saying all along about revenue raising speed cameras and how these devices actually INCREASE the road toll.
The first is a story out of the U.K. which, once again, proves that when you REDUCE the number of speed cameras in operation then you REDUCE the road toll. It is such a SIMPLE concept, yet the authorities here still just don't seem to get it.
Instead of following PROVEN strategies such as this, they insist on installing MORE cameras, fining MORE innocent motorists and, lo and behold, the road toll is HIGHER!
If you have at look over the following page and read some of the articles that they have posted you will see confirmation of this fact from the UK, the US and also our very own back yard. http://www.roadsense.com.au/latest.html
Now, we posted a number of similar articles on our on-line petition page and we have been asking everyone to visit this page and sign our on-line petition to have all speed and red light camera removed. We got off to a fairly good start but the numbers have almost completely dropped off now so we would urge you all to please go to the following page and add your signature and pass it on to EVERYONE in your contacts list so we can get it cranking again.
And finally, we received an e-mail from one of our Members last week who had a most interesting experience at court. We usually just put these e-mails up on our Testimonials page and we will still do that with this one. However, the closing lines of this e-mail will hopefully cause any of you reading this, who have so far missed it, to see the light once and for all.
Hi, some good news and interesting bit of information to share with you. Back in Aug 2008, I attended the Melbourne Magistrates' Court to defend myself against a charge of 'Entering Intersection - Red Traffic Light'. By using the information and resource material provided by 'Aussie Speeding Fines' I was able to successfully have the charge dismissed.
Interestingly though, before the hearing, the Police Prosecutor had a chat with me to discuss and view my case, as if to gauge whether to pursue or not. After seeing photos and hearing what I had prepared he said "Well, you'll have your opportunity to have your say in court" and walked off to the allocated court room.
Upon summarising the events of the hearing, the Magistrate sided with my evidence and particularly noted that the Red Light Camera photos used by Civic Compliance were inconclusive, stating that the photos do not show my vehicle entering the intersection after the lights changed red. The Magistrate then dismissed the charge and also firmly said to the Police Prosecutor that he be better prepared with evidence in the future.
The biggest shock for me out all of this occurred outside the court as the Police Prosecutor stopped briefly to say that the case outcome was what he expected. Well, why then did he make me go through the courts I asked him, to which he replied "You need to understand what happens in the background as to why we still decide to pursue some of these cases in the courts" (Fear of courts - No shows, revenue). I can tell you I was furious, all the prosecutor did was shrug his shoulders and walk off.
Now, if that doesn't get your blood boiling at the current corrupt and unjust system then nothing will. So, if you want to fight back against this kind of blatant revenue raising and taking advantage of INNOCENT motorists, and you haven't yet done so, please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and become a Member.
Once we ALL unite and fight back against these ridiculous, ineffective and unlawful fines, we WILL cause the system to change. It simply HAS to. Remember, when they're raking in a BILLION dollars a year, they can gloss over the INCREASING road toll but when the road toll continues to rise but they're no longer earning money from these flawed and faulty devices then they will HAVE to take notice of the strategies and ideas that we outline on our Vision for the Future page:
As always, thank you all again for your continued support and encouragement and please, stay safe out there!
April 21, 2009
Thank you all so much!
Wow! We are speechless, we truly don't know what to say other than a HUGE "Thank You" to everyone. This past weekend we have been absolutely inundated with e-mails of support from Members and Subscribers and the response to our last e-mail has been simply incredible.
We always knew that we were helping and making a difference but some of the feedback we got just blew us away. So, once again a HUGE "Thank You" to EVERYONE who wrote in with supportive messages. You have truly inspired us to fight harder than ever before!
Also, we must send out an extra special "Thank You" to all of you who went out of their way to write to Frank Pangallo of Today Tonight and explain all the various ways in which the Aussie Speeding Fines system and team have helped you. In fact, so many people wrote to them that we have started receiving the following response to Members from Today Tonight:
Thank you for your email.
We understand that you may have concerns that Today Tonight will be running a story to discredit the business "Aussie Speeding Fines".
Unfortunately you have been given the wrong information. Frank Pangallo and no other reporters from Today Tonight have ever run a story to defame or discredit Aussie Speeding Fines or any other affiliated company.
They were obviously so overwhelmed by the number of e-mails they received that they finally felt they HAD to respond in some way. Now, whilst we certainly appreciate the sentiment of the e-mail and the INDICATION that they have taken notice of all the people who have e-mailed in, we're not yet 100% convinced. Firstly, the wording is a little bit off - "concerns that Today Tonight WILL be running a story" and then "No reporters from Today Tonight HAVE ever run a story"
So, it doesn't actually say anywhere that they WON'T run a story and furthermore, what they say about not EVER running a story to discredit Aussie Speeding Fines is actually NOT true. Today Tonight in Melbourne ran a story last year that suggested that the Aussie Speeding Fines system didn't work. They interviewed Mike Palmer - who previously did some promotion for us and helped us get set up - after he went to them with a story of police corruption and, instead of reporting that, they turned it all around on him and suggested that he was the man behind Aussie Speeding Fines and then, because he didn't get off some trumped up charges, they suggested that our system didn't work.
For further information on this story and the TRUTH about the situation, please visit the following link:
In any event, Today Tonight would be VERY stupid to try and run a story on us now, considering how many of you were kind enough to write to them and explain how we have helped you and, even more so, since we just found out that it was Frank Pangallo himself who interviewed one of Members in South Australia on Today Tonight a few weeks back and she has actually told him that it was basically because of us that she won her case!
It is also worth noting that still, NO-ONE from Today Tonight has made ANY effort to contact us or get OUR side of the story in any way.
By the way, if any of you who kindly forwarded us your letters of support and success to Today Tonight could please confirm if we are able to add them to our Testimonials page then that would be great. We are thinking of even creating a new page called "Letters to Today Tonight" which we could then publish and people who were considering becoming Members and using our system could read all the feedback on top of all the ones we have on the Testimonials page. So, if you are able to send us a separate testimonial or if you have already sent us a copy of what you sent Today Tonight and are happy for us to put it up on our website - without any identifying details obviously - then please let us know.
Anyway, we just wanted to let you all know, once again, how much we appreciate your support and all that feedback has definitely inspired us to fight back stronger and harder than ever before.
Unfortunately, there are always a few negative people, one of more of whom have kindly gone to the trouble of listing our e-mails as spam, which inadvertently affects everyone else. Many of you use an e-mail program that uses spamcop or ironport or one of those programs that filters emails. Now, we always use a double opt-in system which is managed by a third party so we NEVER send spam, we only ever send e-mails to people who have signed up to receive our e-mails and we always include clear instructions at the bottom of each mass mailout as to how to be removed from our mailing list - should you choose to do so. So, how, or why, anyone would list our e-mails as spam is beyond us but it is clearly just another strategy that agents of "the system" employ to try and frustrate us and stop us from informing our Members and Subscribers.
What this means though is that some of you may not be receiving replies from us or may be receiving them a few days late or out of sequence. So, if this happens please be aware of the reason, it is not because we are ignoring you or have forgotten you.
We generally answer all e-mails within 24 - 48 hours, it can sometimes take longer after we send out an update as we generally get a lot of replies. However, if you do not receive a reply within 72 hours please re-send your e-mail as we probably haven't been able to reply for some reason. If you still don't get a response it means your particular e-mail program still hasn't cleared us from the spam list so try sending us an alternate address.
Please note that the reason you still get the mass mailouts is because they are sent from a different system which does not get listed, it is jut our reply server that seems to have the issue.
In closing, we would like to remind any of you who are not yet Members to please join via the following link:
And, anyone who hasn't yet signed our on-line petition yet, we would ask for your assistance and support in that regard as well:
Other than that, we don't have much else to say, we really are still somewhat speechless at all the wonderful feedback and we would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Finally, stay tuned as we have a special surprise on the way for EVERYONE!
Thanks again and stay safe out there!

We’ve had enough – we’ve finally cracked it!
Well, we're sorry to say but we've had enough, we've cracked it! Despite all our efforts over the past 2 years it seems as though enough is never enough. No matter what we do, it's just not good enough. No matter, how we try and help people, there are others that still want to complain and, at the end of the day, as you will see from the news reports below, it appears as though virtually NO-ONE is taking any notice of the facts before their very eyes!
We really don't know what else to do. We don't know how to get through to people, so, we will try one last time.
People ask us why we charge the prices we do. We have been researching and collating our information for 5 years now and we continue to do so. All that research costs MONEY! We also update our website regularly and we send out updates like this constantly - again, this all costs MONEY!
Please tell us ONE other product or service where you get completely FREE updates for life and they answer EVERY question you send them without charge as well? If we just exist to make money or "scam people" then why on earth would we go to all this trouble. Surely there MUST be easier ways to make money and scam people than to go to all of this effort!
You see, we also send out a personalized response to EVERY e-mail enquiry we get, this can be in the vicinity of 300 - 500 e-mails some days. Once again, this costs MONEY. We spend a horrendous amount on Google Adwords each month in an attempt to get our information in front of people BEFORE they get a fine because, quite honestly, we are sick to death of people complaining "Gee, I wish I knew about you guys .... weeks/months ago, before I paid all these fines." We just don't know how to make the message any clearer "Get our e-book BEFORE you get a fine. We GUARANTEE you that you will NOT regret it. If you don't believe our e-book is EVERYTHING we say it is and MORE then simply let us know and we will give you a FULL refund - we simply can't be any fairer than that!
We even go to the trouble of running a 25% discount promotion once or twice a year and even then, we get complaints because people didn't get their order in on time and missed the discount. Hey, we didn't have to give a discount in the first place. Most of our Members gladly paid FULL PRICE. So, in future, if we offer a discount, please have the courtesy to accept it graciously.
Okay, that's our first lot of gripes out of the way, unfortunately though, there are more. Every week we receive an e-mail or two from someone asking us if we are "legit". "Does your stuff REALLY work?" "We read some crap from a lawyer - that has breached so many copyright laws it's a joke - and he says your stuff doesn't work." Etc. etc.
Once and for all, YES our information WORKS! We have been operating for over 2 years now. We update our Testimonials page pretty much every month with feedback from more Members that have successfully used our information to fight back and WIN!
We have published our answers to the ridiculous and baseless claims made by the likes of Mr Hardy and Today Tonight and they are there for ALL to see.
Speaking of which, we have just been informed that Today Tonight wish to do a follow up story to their last piece of journalistic crap, so you heard it here first. Just so you know, at the time of writing this they haven't even ATTEMPTED to contact us in ANY way - not even a SINGLE e-mail. So, expect a truly biased and one-eyed story from them in the next week or so. And, please, before you blindly buy into their rubbish - or anyone else trying to convince you that our stuff doesn't work - just THINK for a moment at what their motivation is. We have been busily working away in the background helping people all over the country to effectively fight back against an ineffective and unjust system. These guys just want to run a sensational and outlandish story to bump up their ratings and/or make themselves feel far more important than they are! We have no need for glory, our success comes from your feedback and Testimonials!
We are asking ALL our current Members for help on this one. We don't do this often but this is important. Frank Pangello from the Adelaide office of Today Tonight is hell bent on trying to discredit us. We have no idea why, especially given that they just did a story on one of our Members who successfully fought back against an unjust fine and won. In any event, we are asking any and all Members who have had any kind of success with our information at all - whether that be the 3 step process, one of our other letters or just the general information in the e-book - to FLOOD Today Tonight and Frank with calls and/or e-mails. You can do this directly via their website at http://www.todaytonightadelaide.com.au/ This is REALLY important and no matter what state you live in this could help make the difference between us continuing to exist or not. It will take only 5 minutes of your time and we would really appreciate your help on this one.
Okay, moving on.
At the start of this e-mail, we told you about some news reports that were of great concern to us. We would like to thank all of our Members who kindly passed these onto us and we would urge you to continue doing so.
So, we sent out an e-mail explaining our Easter promotion last Thursday and we predicted that, despite all the cameras out there issuing unjust fines and despite all the police doing the same thing, that the road toll would NOT go down. Unfortunately, we were correct.
The National road toll for the Easter period was horrifically 14.
What's far more important though, was that we also predicted that it was single car accidents - where people had run off the road because they fell asleep because of the ridiculously low speeds that we are now forced to drive at. Here is the opening paragraph of our Easter e-mail in case you missed it "Unfortunately, if this holiday period is anything like the recent Christmas holiday period then there will still be a number of fatal accidents - mostly single car accidents on boring country roads where the driver has fallen asleep because of the monotonous and boring speed limit he/she was forced to adhere to."
So, are we psychic? Could we magically see into the future? No, of course not. But what we CAN do is look at the FACTS and look at the statistics which show us that speed is only "a" factor in 5% of accidents and that single car accidents on open roads due to artificially DEFLATED speed limits are one of the BIGGEST factors in the road toll.
Please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html to read the facts and statistics for yourself.
Next, we have the following story from Sydney:
Once again, the first thing they discuss is a SINGLE car accident on an open road. They then go on to say that 2700 speeding tickets were issued. Now despite the ridiculously high road toll for NSW, the number of speeding drivers compared to the number of accidents is still massively BELOW the 5% that are attributed to speed. See more on this point below.
Then there was this absolutely insane story from Victoria:
Once again, you will note that the ONLY fatality in Victoria was yet another SINGLE car accident on an open road - is this sounding familiar to ANYONE???? They go on to make ridiculous statements like "Luck, as much as good planning, kept the figure down." Please, what an absolute CROCK! About the only honest statement is them admitting that the reason for the drop in the road toll this year is "an imprecise science". Yes, well, it's certainly not due to fines being issued.
Seriously, if speeding was SO dangerous, as they keep making out and they admit that "over 5,000 speeding fines" were issued then SURELY the road toll should have been higher. Just do the maths and you will see in an instant that this "Speed Kills" message that they keep shoving down our throats has absolutely NO basis in reality!
Now, in case you haven't read it yet, we would urge you to please look over the following page and see that statistics and studies that show that speed cameras actually INCREASE accidents!
Please, add your signature and pass it on to EVERYONE you know.
Now for our final whinge. Despite ALL the facts, despite all the proof that we provide on our website, we were alerted to the following story from WA:
We have a lot of Members in WA - probably because of stories like this - so we don't want to be rude but man, what are they putting in the water over there for a story like this to come out? Given all the information exposing the TRUTH about speed cameras on our on-line petition page (see above) the less said about this story the better.
And finally, in case you were in ANY doubt as to what speed cameras are REALLY all about, check out the following story from NSW:
$23 MILLION! And where do you suppose that revenue came from??? Oh, surely it didn't come from speeding fines, because all that money goes back into improving the roads and training people to be safer drivers - just like we promote on our Vision for the Future page. Yeah, right!
Perhaps now you can see why we are so incredulous at some of the e-mails we receive and the points we raised at the start of this letter. You have so-called "reporters" trying to discredit us, yet they say nothing about the facts and figures that we raise above!
So, please, if you are not yet a Member, please go to our Memberships page below and join the ranks of the truly informed and educated motorists of this country and then pass on our details to friends, family members and work colleagues so they can join too.
We apologise for the whingeing in this e-mail, we don't do it too often but it just all got to us this month, especially considering that we are still working so hard on completing the next update. Hopefully some of this information has gotten you a little hot under the collar as well though. So, please forgive us and we promise we will be on the positive offensive when we write next.

Justice Enfield and new point to point speed cameras
We would like to thank all of you have taken the few minutes required to sign our on-line petition to have all speed and red-light cameras removed across Australian roads. In just 10 days we have collected over 850 signatures however, whilst this is a great start, it is nowhere near enough to make any real impact so please, we would urge you to pass this e-mail onto EVERYONE you know who drives in Australia and urge them to sign as well.
Here is a direct link to the on-line petition:
Those wanting more information on the background of our petition should check out the following link as well:
We have had a number of Members e-mail us over the past week about a few notable cases from the media. First and foremost was the story about Justice Marcus Enfield. A number of people have expressed their concerns that if a Federal Court Judge can't get out of a speeding fine then what hope does the average motorist have? And that, of course, is EXACTLY what these corrupt agencies want you to think. So, let's break it down:
Firstly, the main issue with Justice Enfield was that he lied. He lied on a Stat Dec and he stupidly lied by saying that people that weren't even in the country - and one that was even dead at the time - were supposedly driving his car when he knew full well that they weren't.
Now, those of you who are Members of our site www.aussiespeedingfines.com and have read our e-book will know first hand that one of the points that we stress most highly is do NOT lie and do NOT fill out a Stat Dec incorrectly. Firstly, and most obviously, for the points raised above but secondly, because there is no need to. There are so many strategies available to our Members (which are all detailed in our e-book "Speeding Fines - What You REALLY Need to Know!") for defeating unjust and unlawful fines that filling out a Stat Dec incorrectly is just absolutely NOT an option. In fact, as our Members will note, we actually instruct our Members to use OUR own forms instead of the forms created by the agencies deliberately to try and trap you.
So, why did Justice Enfield lie? People have e-mailed us saying "Hey, this guy was a Federal Court Judge, if he didn't know all the ways to get out a fine then there obviously can't be any." No!!!!!! Go and ask a family court lawyer or a banking lawyer how to get out of a fine- they will have NO idea. That is NOT their area of expertise. A Federal Court Judge would have almost NEVER dealt with a simple speeding fine or parking fine so he wouldn't have a clue of how to get out of it. This fact can be proven by many of our members who have gone into a Magistrate's Court to fight against an unjust and unlawful traffic fine - Magistrate's Courts deal with these types of issues all day, every day - and yet the Prosecutors and Magistrate's have been running around completely flustered because they have often never heard of the points that our Members raise from our e-book.
The "law" is EXTREMELY complicated and unless you specialize in a particular area and keep up to date with all the changes made in that area then it is very unlikely that you will know anything about it. So, that answers ONE part of why Justice Enfield lied. The other, obvious question is, why didn't he just pay the fine?
He didn't pay the fine because like every other reasonable and safe driver on the road he was justifiably concerned about losing his licence and his right to travel freely in this country despite harming NO-ONE! Despite ALL the media stories on Justice Enfield and his speeding fines, not ONCE has anyone mentioned that he had an accident, that he hurt anyone, that he deprived anyone of anything. So, why was a Federal Court Judge so worried about his licence that he would commit the most shocking of acts, for a person in that position, and lie on a Stat Dec and under oath? It was simply because he knew how corrupt the system was and that he felt that was his only option. If only he had gone to our website at http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and become a Member!
So please, do NOT buy into the media hype about these fines and do NOT be scared into blindly paying because you don't think there is anything you can do. There is PLENTY you can do and the MANY e-mails we have received from our Members and placed on our Testimonials page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html prove this fact categorically! If you take anything away from the Judge Enfield story it should be - do NOT lie, do NOT fill out a Stat Dec incorrectly and do NOT give false evidence, you simply do NOT need to, to still effectively fight back and win against unjust and unlawful fines.
Okay, we also received a number of e-mails from Members saying that in our last e-mail we referred to an e-mail that was circulating about the point to point cameras on the M5 and M7 freeways in NSW. A number of people have informed us that this e-mail was a hoax e-mail and we shouldn't have passed it on.
We only mentioned it because a number of Members had passed it on to us and they were concerned about the contents. In any event, whether real or not, the fact is that point to point cameras DO exist and it is just as easy to defeat fines from these types of cameras as it is to defeat fines by ALL types of cameras. So whether these cameras are really in operation now, whether they may be some time on the future or perhaps not at all, the point is do NOT worry, do NOT buy into this kind of media hype and NEVER just blindly pay a speeding fine or parking fine.
Finally, speaking of point to point cameras, a number of Members from out "West" sent us the following article: http://www.thewest.com.au/default.aspx?MenuID=77&ContentID=131675
Now, firstly, this obviously highlights our point above that these cameras ARE already in use in Victoria and our Members are effectively defeating unjust and unlawful fines issued by this system and secondly, if they are not yet operational in NSW - and QLD, for that matter - it will only be a matter of time.
The most important and obvious points to be taken from this article are the following lines: "Professor Cameron estimated that the point-to-point cameras would see police issue about 850,000 speeding fines a year." and "Based on an average fine of $150, this would equate to almost $130 million a year in fines revenue."
Firstly, if speed cameras are SO effective at making motorists slow down - as they keep spouting - then how on earth can they estimate how many fines these things will issue before the first one is even installed????
And secondly, as always, they claim that these devices are NOT about raising revenue yet, once again, before the first camera is even installed, they are already tallying up how much they money they will extort from INNOCENT motorists!!!!
Guys, and girls, this whole thing is getting out of control. Our civil liberties are being eaten away every day and it is only going to continue getting WORSE if we don't send out a UNITED message. The whole country is in the grip of a credit crisis, people are losing their jobs, their homes and their families and all the governments of this country want to do is find new, more efficient ways, of taking our hard earned money. We simply MUST put a stop to this.
Please pass this on to EVERYONE you know. Please urge them to sign our on-line petition at http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/remove-speed-and-red-light-cameras.html and urge EVERY motorist to become a Member and put an end to this madness!

Have you signed our petition yet?
Following on from our last e-mail, we now have even more reasons to urge you to sign our petition to have ALL speed and red-light cameras removed from our roads. In case you missed our last e-mail or you had problems with the links, we have hosted all the relevant details on a separate page on our website that can be accessed via the following link:
In the meantime, if you haven't done so yet, please go to http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/remove-speed-and-red-light-cameras.html and add your signature.
Now, as if what we sent out last week wasn't enough - the fact that speed and red-light cameras are now proven to INCREASE accidents - we have just been sent a link to a story that was done on Today Tonight in Adelaide on yet another faulty speed camera. If you go to the following link http://www.todaytonightadelaide.com.au/ and select the 5th video down called "Speed Camera Bungle" you will see a scientific breakdown that confirms EVERYTHING that we have been saying about these devices ALL along.
This story highlights how many errors there are with speed detection devices and how many completely INNOCENT motorists are having their hard earned money EXTORTED from them under the false guise of "road safety". It also points out how badly "the system" is stacked against the motorists of this country and why it is SO important to fight back!
You can see for yourself the errors with camera angle set-up and the very sections of the guidelines for use manuals that we provide in our e-book are referred to by the expert interviewed in the story. All the bits about where cameras can and can't be set up and how they are supposed to be set up is included in our e-book, exactly as is outlined in this interview. This means that, as a Member of our website, you can use EXACTLY the same arguments as the guy being interviewed puts forward on camera. If you're not yet a Member, please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html
The expert being interviewed also goes on to show how the hand held devices have their own set of problems with the Doppler effect and again, we explain all of this in our e-book so, no matter which flawed revenue raising device you have been "caught" by, you CAN fight back and win as Bridget did. Our heartfelt thanks go out to Bridget for having the guts to stand up and fight back and to make this story a reality. She is one of our informed and educated Members and should be an inspiration to all of you that you CAN fight back and WIN!
We have also been sent the following e-mail - or a version of it (with differing supposed "authenticating signatures" at the end) - about 50 times in the past month or so:
New Legislation M5 & M7 Re Speeding Fines
Please read if you travel both tollways....you may lose your licence
M5 and the M7 are now equipped with Point to Point Speed Devices. On entering the M7 the Etag beeps and a camera takes a photo of your car recording the exact time. On exiting the Etag system beeps again another camera at that point takes a photo of the car and the time. Then the computer calculates the time it has taken you to travel between the two points and calculates your speed. If you completed the clocked journey too fast you are issued with a speeding ticket.
At the present the speed limit is 100K.P.H. with a tolerance of 102 maximum. Over that and you are issued with a fine automatically. What a shock some drivers are going to have when they use this roadway for a week and get a week's tickets BOTH WAYS. Of course your licence will also be recalled for 3 months. Now with the new legislation, fighting a Speed Camera fine is almost impossible. You must prove the device is faulty and if you are not a technician working on them, you have no chance of beating the fine.
The Pacific Highway has a set and these are recognized by large steel frames over the lanes with a speed camera and some distance up the road is another large metal frame with a speed camera.
These new point to point systems are being put onto any expressway and highway where vehicles are not able to exit between those points.
NOTE: School zone cameras are not speed tolerant. Anything over, even 41K.P.H, is a fine.

Now, the fact is that these types of cameras have been operating in Victoria for quite some time now and their absolutely ridiculous suggestion that these fines cannot be beaten for some magical unknown reason in NSW is a complete JOKE!
Members have been successfully fighting these fines as well as ALL other camera fines due to the flawed MD5 algorithm and lack of NSC approval. They are just as easy to beat as any other fines so please do NOT buy into their scare tactics!
Anyway, we're going to keep this e-mail short as we would prefer you spent time signing our petition at http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/remove-speed-and-red-light-cameras.html and passing this e-mail onto EVERYONE in your Contacts list. Given the statistics that we have provided on our website and in previous e-mails that PROVE that speed cameras are simply there to raise revenue and actually INCREASE accidents, there is no reason why EVERY single motorist in Australia shouldn't have his or her signature on our petition. We urge you to please do your part to make that so.

Update to last e-mail with new links
Sorry, some of the links in our last e-mail didn't work so we have re-sent it with new links. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Well, on the very off chance that you needed any further proof as to why all speed and red-light cameras MUST be removed from our roads once and for all, we have included it for you below. In fact, our research shows that these cameras actually INCREASE accidents and we have the statistics and research below to back up what many may think is an outlandish claim. Once you have read the facts though, you will realize what is outlandish is that these corrupt agencies continue to get away with false advertising - with their complete rubbish about speed cameras saving lives - as well as making off with your hard earned money.
If, however, you're one of our informed and educated Members then you know this already and you don't need any more convincing. Therefore, if you're ready, willing and able to do your bit, then we would urge you to click the following link and add your signature to our on-line petition and join us in having all speed and red light cameras removed from all roads across Australia.
http://www.gopetition.com.au/online/26111.html - On-line Petition link
Should you wish a little more information first - or even after you have signed, to confirm that you have done the right thing - then please read on.
Now, from a purely technical point of view, those of you who have read Bonus Report 3 from the e-book will understand that the fundamental way in which a speed or red-light camera operates is in violation of our fundamental right to natural justice. In ANY other type of punishment a HUMAN must FIRST detect or estimate that you are doing something wrong and then CONFIRM that estimation with the use of a scientific device - there needs to be that two step process for transparency.
With camera detection devices, however, there is NO human involvement at all. In fact, a single device ends up becoming Judge, Jury and Executioner all in one and, people across the world have now had enough.
Motorists from all around the globe have realized how these cameras have deprived them of their basic rights - as well as a lot of their hard earned money - and they have taken steps to remove these cameras in their part of the world. And now, it is time for the people of Australia to do the same. At the very end of this e-mail, you will find another link to our on-line petition which we would ask you all to sign and to pass around to everyone you know who drives a vehicle on our roads to sign as well.
In the meantime, we have attached some very interesting articles, reports and research that we have come across that you can share with your family and friends so that we can ensure that 2009 is the year that justice FINALLY prevails in this country and people, once again, regain their freedom to travel unhindered on our roads, as they have a natural, God-given right to do.
This first article is from an Arizona County that has now officially scrapped its speed camera program. This PROVES that what we are suggesting - to have all cameras removed - CAN be done. More importantly, the article clearly states that "Accidents INCREASED by 16%" in the year that the cameras were operational. The same article also states that red light cameras have "also been associated with increased accidents in some cities." http://voices.kansascity.com/node/3409
There is a more comprehensive article on the situation below and again, there are some VERY important lines to note. Firstly, it is the County Sheriff himself who made the comment that "I'm against photo speed enforcement COMPLETELY" - he goes on to state that speed cameras actually "created dangerous road conditions." Now, who better to know this than the actual guy on the ground there? Interestingly, this matches EXACTLY what many police officers in Australia also believe but are too scared to speak up and say.
Now, here's the truly telling line, the Sheriff actually states on record that, in addition to the INCREASE in accidents by 16%, fatal accidents actually DOUBLED!!!! Now, obviously he can't prove that speed cameras caused the accidents but he DOES admit that they were a factor - now, this is a FAR cry from the "Cameras CUT Crashes" crap that we are spoon fed here in Australia!
Here is yet another article - this time from Hawaii - that proves, once again, that these cameras CAN be removed from service if enough people stand up and fight back. The telling line in this article is where the drivers say the system "smacked of "George Orwell's "Big Brother" - anyone get that same feeling of living in a Police State here in Australia?
The article below is from Winnipeg, Canada and the opening line says it all "Independent city audit shows Winnipeg, Canada police use misleading statistics to hide the INCREASE in accidents caused by photo enforcement" - that's right, the same thing AGAIN, speed cameras actually contributed to an INCREASE in accidents - the very thing they are supposed to be decreasing! http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/10/1036.asp
The final article below is from a University study that, once again, shows that cameras actually INCREASE crashes! Whilst the whole article is an interesting read, the three pertinent lines are: "Instead of improving motorist safety, red-light cameras SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE crashes ...","The rigorous studies clearly show red-light cameras DON'T work," and "Instead, they INCREASE crashes and injuries...."
Unfortunately, far too many people just blindly buy into the media rubbish, that is, of course, sponsored by corrupt government agencies - that these cameras are there for our safety. These articles are just a small sample of research and studies that appear all around the world proving that these cameras exist wholly and solely to raise revenue. We even got an article form a Member just this past weekend that stated similar results in Italy - unfortunately, the link didn't work. We have always referenced the Autobahns of Europe as clear and concise proof that speed does NOT kill. Just look at the speeds that they drive over there and how few accidents they have.
However, we know that despite all of the above there will STILL be people that don't believe us. There will still be someone that says "Yeah, well that's all research from the US, it's not relevant here." Obviously, they have a LOT more people in the US so, if anything, it just proves our point even further but hey, that's fine, because we ALSO have statistics from Australia as well.
Now, before you check out the following links, it is important to note that the person who has provided the following statistics is not some crazy guy who hates the cops and enforcement agencies, he is not someone who believes that people should drive however they want, he was actually the Manager for Road Safety Research at Vicroads. Unfortunately, once he started providing evidence such as the links below, he was urged to "move on". So, on that note, please look over the statistics and graphs below which are from Tasmania and Queensland, right here in Australia.
Tasmania Road Toll Trends -Click here to download this file. http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/attachments/3/Tasmania%20road%20toll%20trends.doc
Queensland Road Toll Trends - Click here to download this file. http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/attachments/3/Queensland%20road%20toll%20Trends.doc
So, the common thread throughout ALL of these articles and statistics is that, despite what our so-called "authorities" try and tell us, cameras do NOT cut crashes, they increase crashes. Cameras do NOT save lives, they are actually a factor in increasing fatal crashes. Mobile cameras, fixed cameras and red light cameras do NOT work in ANY way other than to raise revenue for the government.
If you haven't already done so, we would urge you all to take a few minutes to read over our Vision For the Future page -http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - for further details on why these cameras will NEVER reduce the road toll in this country and what steps WILL ultimately make a difference.
We would urge any of you who are not yet Members to go to our Memberships page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and join the team of Informed and Educated motorists of this country and finally, please use the link below to add your signature to our on-line petition to finally have all these ridiculous cameras removed from our roads once and for all.
http://www.gopetition.com.au/online/26111.html - On-line Petition link
Once again, we would ask you to please pass this e-mail around to ALL your contacts - just be sure to cut out the Unsubscribe link before passing it on so that you are not accidentally removed form our database. Also, feel free to cut and pastes the relevant sections onto any and all motoring forums or websites - Facebook, Twitter, My Space etc. - that you may have access to and please help us spread the word that the motorists of this country have now had enough and there is something very simple that EVERYONE can do to help make that change. Together, we CAN change this corrupt, unjust and unlawful system!

The latest relevant media reports
Firstly, we would like to thank all of you who have been passing through media articles to us over the past week or so. Now, obviously, we have doubled up on a lot of stories but of more concern is the simply the number of stories that have been forwarded to us that are NOT doubled up.
This clearly shows that there is more and more media attention being focused on these ridiculous revenue raising devices and the public is well and truly FED UP!
Now, were still working on finalizing the on-line petition for all states to have these unjust and unlawful devices removed and we are also just compiling all the international research and reports that PROVE, once and for all, that these devices do NOT save lives! We hope to have these off to you all in the next week or so.
In the meantime, we wanted to share two of the most disturbing stories that we came across in the past week - through the help of our diligent Members that passed them on - which, once again, highlight the absolute ABSURDITY of the current corrupt system.
Firstly, we saw this story in the Herald Sun newspaper which outlines one camera in particular, in Melbourne, that has raked in over $4 MILLION in just ONE year!
Now, as you read the story you will see some far more disturbing figures than even that one. They go on to mention a number of other cameras and they proudly state that these cameras have "caught" 20,000 odd drivers EACH!
They pathetically try to justify this by quoting some ridiculous figure that 4,000 motorists across the STATE are involved in crashes due to people running red lights. However, they have provided NO correlation WHAT-SO-EVER between THESE particular cameras and those crash sites!
They quote the number of crashes at 4,000 people across the entire state but these cameras are catching 20,000 - 25,000 people EACH. There are so many cameras that now there's even a "Top 50" list - how on earth did we allow it to get so out of control??? There is also NO evidence at all that crashes at the sites where these particular cameras operate has reduced at all.
Now, if these people want to try and justify their lovely little revenue raising devices then please provide some RELEVANT data and stop filling our heads with their crap and their pockets with our money.
They try and make out that they are the "good guys" in all of this and it's not about the money - yeah right! In fact, they even provide the biggest joke excuse of all - "If traffic cameras were just about raising money then Police would not have waived fines for 24,000 drivers last year." They waived fines for 24,000 drivers because they HAD to - we FORCED them to!!!!
We challenge ANYONE to provide us with a letter from ANY Police Force in the country where the Police just wrote to them - without someone writing to them FIRST - and said "Hey, we've thought about it and we're going to drop your fine." Seriously, what a load of absolute CRAP!
The ONLY reason Police waived these fines is because OUR strategies tell people EXACTLY what they have to do to achieve that. If they are so generous, as they try and make out, please show us where the Police advertise what to say and how to say it to have a fine waived - they DON'T! We do - which is why it is important to pass our website onto anyone and everyone you know who drives in this country. If this article has ANY truth to it, it is that our strategies WORK, (despite what certain vindictive individuals suggest) and you CAN avoid paying these unjust and unlawful fines by using our information!
So, if you're not yet a Member, please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and join up now.
It appears that Mr Terry Mulder is the only person with any SENSIBLE comments. He admits that the figures from these cameras are "extraordinary" and, more importantly, he admits that other measures clearly need to be introduced as the current system is obviously not working. Mind you, that is what we have been saying for around 2 years now and we have a comprehensive outline of some of the strategies that we would like to see brought in and these can be viewed at http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - as well as detailed statistics on what REALLY causes these crashes and why NO amount of new speed cameras will EVER make a difference.
The problem is that these agencies keep justifying these devices by saying that they supposedly "make people slow down" - they quote rubbish like "speed cameras cut crashes", "speed cameras save lives" - yet by Mr Mulder's own admissions, they clearly do NOT!
The definition of "insanity" is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result. They keep installing more and more sped cameras and making more and more money yet lives are NOT being saved! It is time to take NEW action and that is what we trust that our on-line petition will achieve next month - so, stay tuned.
Okay, and one other story that also happened to be in the Herald Sun, was about yet another revenue raising device that is being trialled in Australia at the moment, the AutoChalk system for issuing parking fines.
Any of you from Victoria will no doubt remember the never ending string of problem that Tenix - who is the company trying to bring out this new system - have had over the past few years with their sped cameras. They had their cameras on the Western Ring Road and Westgate Freeway turned for years and the Victorian Government even had to set up a multi-million dollar compensation fund to pay back all the motorists who were wrongly fined. But SURELY, they will get it right this time - wont they?
Not only that, but, as we stated above, simply issuing fines is NOT the answer. Something DIFFERENT needs to be done but that will never happen whilst they are raking in billions of dollars worth of revenue each year and that is just set to increase dramatically. We MUST fight back and stop paying our fines and send a message loud and clear that we simply DON'T want the government employing these types of strategies on our so-called "behalf".
Sure, it's frustrating not being able to find a parking spot when you want to but are prepared to allow this type of Big Brother system to come into effect instead? GPS is notoriously inaccurate. Please write in if you have used a GPS for more than 6 months and it has NEVER sent you to the wrong place.
This system will make it almost impossible - for those who are not Members and are not kept up to date with our strategies - to fight these fines because you won't receive the ticket until weeks after the so-called "offence" so you won't know if it was correct or not. At least when you find a ticket under your window you can take photos of the signage, the position of your car etc.
How will this system know if you parked for an hour, left for a while and then returned to the exact same spot? How will the system be calibrated and tested as it will be required to be under Section 10 of the National Measurement Act? Will the photos be admissible in court? Will the laws surrounding this system be "magically" enacted or will they be enacted in the Queen's name, as is required? Who will testify in court against you - the truck itself or the driver (who cannot possibly testify that you were parked illegally when he is driving a truck that photographs 7,000 cars an hour!)
The system has more holes in it than Swiss cheese, yet they will supposedly pass it in Parliament and they will start issuing fines and, once again, the average, innocent motorist, who doesn't know any better will be fleeced of even more of their hard earned dollars.
In case you haven't noticed, we are in the midst of a major financial crisis. Do you want those you elected into power to be bringing in new ways of taking more of your hard earned money or do you think that perhaps their time, effort and energy could be otherwise better spent?
Seriously, you cannot just sit back and hope that it will look after itself. These stories are in the media for a reason, to inform you of what these corrupt government agencies are trying to get away with. But, now you know so you MUST take action. Write to your local Member of Parliament, write to the media and explain that you do NOT want the government taking these kinds of actions. You do NOT want your money spent on more speed cameras and revenue raising systems. If you do not speak up, your voice will not be heard and nothing will change.
Sure, we're here to help motorists fight their individual fines and we will continue do so but there is only so much we can do on our own. We need EVERYONE to stand up and fight back TOGETHER and send a UNIFIED message that enough is now enough!
Please pass this e-mail on to everyone in your Contacts list - be sure to remove the Unsubscribe link at the bottom so you don't get un-intentionally removed from our list - and let's take a collective stand and fight back.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming e-mails which will give you further proof of why these devices are totally INEFFECTIVE at reducing the road toll and specific steps on what each of you can do yourselves to help make a difference.

Outrageous incidents of Lies and Deception
We have been absolutely blown away by some of the stories that we have heard in the past few months of outrageous incidents of lies, deception and fraud by agents of the current corrupt system.
These unashamedly crooked agencies are going to extraordinary lengths to try and hide the truth from innocent motorists, trying to convince them not to exercise their rights and blatantly extorting money from them.
Now, we don't mind a little pre-trial blustering where the Prosecutor might tell you that their case is solid and you shouldn't waste their time fighting in court or things of that nature. We don't even mind them saying "Oh, that Aussie Speeding Fines mob, their stuff won't work. You should seek independent advice." Mind you, that's EXACTLY what we tell people in our book - do NOT just blindly believe ANYTHING we say - please use all the reference material that we provide to check and confirm it all for yourself first. Also, the numerous Testimonials - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - on our website - which are updated regularly - will prove, from an INDEPENDENT perspective, that our strategies DO, in fact, work!
But, what we will cover in this e-mail is FAR worse than that! Some of the stories that we have heard in the past month specifically have been absolutely INEXCUSABLE and we feel that we simply MUST make you aware of them. Again, please discuss the following scenarios with your friends and family and you will surely find that you know people who have heard of these as well and may have even been personally affected by them. Do NOT buy in this RUBBISH, follow the solutions hat we provide below and keep fighting!
To begin, we received an e-mail just a few days ago from one of our Members who had great intentions of helping people. The e-mail REPORTEDLY came from a guy who worked for "the speeding fine department of Brisbane Magistrate's Court". Now a simple phone call to Brisbane Magistrate's Court will obviously confirm that there is NO such department.
Now, the problem here is that this person was trying to convince people to use a VERY old and outdated method of overpaying a fine by a dollar or two and thus not incurring demerit points - we have included the whole e-mail below so you can see the ridiculous rubbish for yourself and also warn others against attempting this deceptive strategy:
"Worth a try...
Just thought I would share this with you, as you know I work in the speeding fine department in Brisbane's Magistrate's Court and in the course of my investigation into 'fines, their payment methods and how points are automatically added against drivers licences' we discovered something very interesting 'If You Get a Speeding Fine.' This has been tried and it works.
I have tried to send this to everyone I know. I know for a fact that it works so if you ever get in this situation, you have an out. We discovered that this procedure works nationwide. Read it and try it, you have nothing to lose but the points on your licence.
This is how it works:
If you get a speeding ticket or went through a red light or whatever the case may be, and you are going to get points on your licence, then there is a method to ensure that you DO NOT get any points. When you get your fine, send in the cheque to pay for it and if the fine is say, $140, then make the cheque out for $141 or some small amount over the fine. The system will then have to send you back a cheque for the difference, but here is the trick!
**DO NOT CASH THE REFUND CHEQUE!!!** Throw it away!! Points are not assessed to your licence until all financial transactions are complete. If you do not cash the cheque then the transactions are NOT complete.
However, the system has got its money and is happy and will not bother you any more. This information came to our attention from a very reliable computer company that sets up the standard database used by each county's computing system.
Good luck and share this with all your friends and other family members as well!!!"
So, we need to ask ourselves two very important questions, A) Who would initiate an e-mail like this and B) Why would they initiate an e-mail like this? Well, let's deal with B first and then A will become obvious. Thousands of people are now fighting their fines in court using the information and strategies from our e-book and winning. The court backlogs is out of control and more and more fines are ending up unpaid. We have provided all the media reports on the actual percentages and the hundreds of thousands of dollars worth fines that are lapsing each year as a result in some of our recent e-mails. Please let us know if you missed these figures and we will forward them to you.
So, the courts and the agencies they ultimately represent - by now you HAVE obviously figured out that the courts are there to keep the system going and NOT to actually administer Justice - are losing hundreds of thousands of dollars a year because people are fighting their fines rather than blindly paying them. So, they resurrect this old strategy - which DID actually work many years ago - in an attempt to get people to pay. They know that most people don't want to go to court and they know that most people are far more worried about demerit points than the actual fine. They figure that be re-releasing this story, people will go "Oh yeah, I remember hearing something about that" and then pay the fine in the hope that they won't lose demerit points. Of course then, it's too late, once the fine is paid, there is NOTHING more you can do. They have your money AND your demerit points and you got sucked in.
So PLEASE, if you want to pass around an e-mail, pass this one around NOT the one above! But seriously, how desperate must they really be to go to these lengths? We challenge anyone to find the person who originated that e-mail and have them charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice - by trying to scare people into paying and thereby eliminating their right to fight and seek justice - for attempting to obtain financial advantage by deception - because they deceived people with their story and got money as a result - and for impersonating an officer of the law - with their ridiculous claim that they worked for the Speeding Fine division of Brisbane Magistrate's court!
Okay, well an e-mail like that is bad enough. Hopefully most people would have been able to see through it very quickly. Unfortunately, we have other stories that are far more insidious and have far reaching implications on those who hear about them.
We received a report yesterday from a Member who was to appear in court over a simple traffic fine. Sadly, he suffered a heart attack the day before the hearing and was hospitalized. A family member notified the court of his dire medical situation and explained that he obviously wouldn't be able to make it to court as he was still in hospital. That family member then received an e-mail confirmation back from the court noting the situation.
Now, get this, the case went ahead the next day and the Magistrate found the Member guilty, issued a fine and then unbelievably entered into the court record that the Member was present in court! They say that Justice is blind but this is CRAZY!
How does a Magistrate, who has sworn to uphold the truth and administer justice impartially, get away with entering on a court record that a defendant appeared in court and was found guilty when he was miles away in hospital, has all the medical records to prove it and the Court themselves have notification on file of the situation AND they responded to it? Does the system get any more corrupt than that? Is this the legal system that you support? Is this Magistrate and all those out there doing similar things administering Justice and protecting you the way they are supposed to be?
The so-called "Justice" system is out of control and we MUST send a message back that this kind of behavior will NOT be tolerated. This Member has been advised to go to the media and expose this Magistrate as well as lodging a formal complaint with the Chief Justice over the matter as well. On that point, we urge ALL Members - and even our free report Subscribers - to go to the media and lodge a formal complain with the relevant body EVERY time they come across corruption or deception along the lines of any of these stories. If we contact the media every time ourselves then we are seen to be biased but if we can get more people from the general public getting on TV, radio or even their local paper and reporting stories along these lines then A) their system of corruption will quickly be exposed and B) more people will be inspired to fight back against it.
At the end of the day, obviously a simply application for re-hearing outlining the particulars of the situation will see the matter resolved from this Member's point of view but more MUST be done to send a message to those that are supposed to be working for US, that they MUST abide by the law and NOT sit there only to protect the "system".
Now, another similar story that we received from another Member was he had a Mention date - which is just where you plead Guilty or Not Guilty. If you plead Guilty then they will hear your explanation, find you guilty and then apply the appropriate sentence. However, if you plead Not Guilty, the case will be adjourned for a hearing date and that's when the Informant will be present to give evidence in the case against you. It is important to note that the Informant is NOT there on the first Mention date because they don't turn up in case you plead Guilty and then they're not needed - they don't want to waste time. Obviously you are encouraged to plead Guilty so they can get their money and run but, if you plead Not Guilty then they will do everything they can to fight.
One of the tricks they use is to get you into court to try and persuade you to plead Guilty and then, if you plead Not Guilty then they say "Well, you have to come back another day then because the Informant isn't here." They believe that you will get so frustrated that you have to take another day off work etc that you will just change your plea. That in itself is a very deceptive tactic. However, all our Members know that you can enter your plea without actually going to court.
Anyway, this Member did that, entered his plea of Not Guilty and then found out that the case was heard without him and his Not Guilty plea was completely ignored! We then advised him to write back in and A) request a re-hearing and B) request an investigation into the matter and have the Magistrate pursued for improper conduct - in that he ignored the Not Guilty plea and continued anyway.
Long story short, the Member was ultimately granted the re-hearing application but was then abused and threatened by the Chief Magistrate for his comment about the fact that the original Magistrate illegally ignored his Not Guilty plea. The Chief Magistrate even went as far as to quote completely irrelevant and outdated Laws from 1886 in an attempt to excuse the actions of the previous Magistrate. Again, we submit that there is NO excuse for such blatant abuse of power and corrupt tactics.
Okay, another situation we have had reported to us by a number of Members has been the issue of them attending court, being told by the Magistrate that he recognizes that they have not committed the offence but orders them to pay the fine anyway and suggests that he will not record a conviction and demerit points will not be applied. Now, in and of itself this would seem to be yet another abuse of power and have an element of corruption to it. If you are not guilty and a conviction is not recorded against then why should you have to pay the fine? Once again, this just PROVES that the whole system of traffic fines is simply set up to raise revenue.
Now, all our Members know that due to a particular section of the Constitution and 4 sections of the Currency Act, you cannot lawfully pay this court ordered fine anyway so it really doesn't matter and they are often happy with this deal because they were ultimately worried about the demerit points anyhow.
However, what happens next is that they receive notification from their "record keeping agency" (Vicroads, RTA etc.)- and it is important to remember that term because that is all they are - that demerit points have been applied to their licence. They then write back to the agency and explain that the Magistrate clearly ordered the demerit points NOT be applied as they were not convicted of the so-called "offence" and they are told some rubbish about the Magistrate not having authority to order that.
Yet, when you look up the relevant legislation it is clear that the Magistrate is the ONLY person authorized to make such a ruling and these agencies are in breach of the record keeping requirements by entering the reduced demerit points. Now, it usually take a few letters back and forth and a threat of court action against them to rectify the situation but again, why should we be forced to do that? A Magistrate has ordered NO demerit points to be applied yet the agencies then take it upon themselves to illegally take demerit points AGAINST the ruling of a Magistrate. This is how absolutely out of control the current system is!
And finally, one of the most common deceptive strategies employed by these corrupt agencies, to extort money from people by scaring them into paying up, is the continued threat of costs. Now, we go into great detail in the e-book to combat this but, because this is one of the biggest fears that people have in relation to fighting their fines in court we wanted to clear this up here and now. So, for all those people that think we are just out to make money from our e-book and why don't we give out information for free, how about this for a freebie?
Article 15 of the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights clearly states that "No-one shall be held guilty of any criminal offence on account of any act or omission which did not constitute a criminal offence, under national or international law, at the time when it was committed. Nor shall a heavier penalty be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time when the criminal offence was committed. If, subsequent to the commission of the offence, provision is made by law for the imposition of the lighter penalty, the offender shall benefit thereby."
This was brought into effect by the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Act 1986 and you are welcome to go and confirm this for yourselves. The courts can NOT legally add costs on - even if you lose - for a criminal offence! So please, do not be frightened off from fighting back and defending yourself by these wild and baseless accusations of "You will be lumped with all these extra costs if you lose and you will definitely lose." etc. etc.
As always, we urge you to share this information with everyone in your contacts list - don't forget to delete the Unsubscribe link at the bottom so someone doesn't inadvertently remove you from our mailing list.
We trust that this information will disgust and appal you as it has done us and will cause you to fight back even harder than ever before. If you are not yet a Member, please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html right now to join the team that is committed to exposing the TRUTH about these corrupt agencies and providing you with the information and strategies to avoid being a victim of this corruption yourself.

Our latest success
Just a quick e-mail to bring you up to date with some of our current progress and a couple of points in particular which highlight how corrupt the current system is and how what you are all doing is working brilliantly.
Firstly, there was an article in the Herald Sun last week in Melbourne about 2 guys who are fighting back and making some GREAT headway. You will note that they have both successfully had speed camera fines overturned and they are now trying to expose the unreliability of both fixed and mobile speed cameras. Now, before you read the story below we want to say that this is NOT what we recommend that all our Members do, in fact, we explain quite clearly that you should NOT try and set a massive precedent but simply win your own case by creating reasonable doubt with your specific situation.
Having said that though, the whole point of our e-book is to inspire and empower people to fight back in any way they can and these guys are doing a brilliant job. Check out their story below: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,,24977273-2862,00.html
Now, the most important line in that entire story is where the Police barrister, Mr Robert Taylor specifically states that he was arguing against releasing the documents they want because it would prove that all "fixed speed cameras were generally unreliable." Now, the text book definition of "corruption" is trying to hide the truth from the very people that you are sworn to protect.
Now, this is EXACTLY what we have been saying all along. People need to eliminate their old flawed belief that speed cameras are generally accurate and every so often get it wrong and understand precisely what the police barrister is saying, which is that these cameras are basically inaccurate and every so often they get it right!
In fact, we are just finalizing our research at the moment and will be sending out an update in the next week that PROVES once and for all, by a number of independent studies from all around the world, that these ridiculous revenue raising devices do NOT save lives and should be removed from our roads immediately. Following on from that we will be officially launching our Australia-wide petition to have speed cameras removed from service across Australia just as they have been in Canada, Hawaii and a number of states in the U.S. Stay tuned for these exciting e-mails.
And, speaking of staying tuned. We are just finishing off the latest e-book update. We know it has been a while since the last one but we assure you all that this one will be well worth the wait. On top of all the general bits and pieces that we add in with a formal update, we have a brand new tried and tested strategy that we have now perfected over the past 6 months to have multiple fines reduced to a single fine. So, if you know anyone who has received a number of fines from the same area in a short period of time then this is going to be a God-send for them.
So, all current Members should keep their eye on their e-mail box over the next few weeks to receive this free update and any of you reading this who are not yet Members, please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html and become a Member so you can take advantage of this new information as soon as it is released.
And, a final note to show you all what a HUGE impact you are all having on the current system. As you know, we encourage EVERYONE to fight EVERY ticket they receive, if for no other reason than to clog up "the system" and cause the kind of result that we reported on in our last e-mail - which showed that thousands of court orders were lapsing each day because they simply couldn't keep up with the demand. In case you missed the e-mail, or you found that they changed the location of the story (which is VERY interesting in itself) then click the link below to read the article: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,,24929628-2862,00.html
Anyway, there was another story in the Herald Sun last week which reported on the number of backlogs in the court system. There were literally thousands of cases waiting to be heard and over 27% of cases had been waiting over 12 months. Now, as we explain in the e-book, if they don't initiate proceedings within a 12 month period then they cannot take action. And, any delay in the proceedings once they are issued all goes in your favour because demerit points are valid for less time, Informants leave the job, forget the details of the fine etc.
Now, we are quite concerned that after the last story we sent everyone - see the notes above - they then changed the location of the story. This latest story wasn't even uploaded to the net so we can't send you a link. It appeared in Monday, February 2nd edition of the paper on page 15 but we have a pdf version of the article if you would like us to send it to you.
So, once again, we would like to thank you all for your continued support. You are doing a GREAT job and we really ARE making an impact. Once we send out the facts and figures on the speed camera research that has been done worldwide then you are sure to be blown away. Then, when we release the on-line petition we will need ALL your help to get as many signatures as we can and finally have these ridiculous revenue raising devices removed from service in this county.
As always, we encourage you to pass these e-mails on to all your contacts but we found out that a number of people were accidentally un-subscribed from our service because they forwarded an e-mail on and then the recipient used the unsubscribe link and un-knowingly removed Members from our system. So, if you're going to forward this on then please remove the Un-subscribe line from the bottom first to save that happening to you.

Important Australia Day information
Firstly, we would like to wish you all a very happy Australia Day. Now, it is worth quickly asking the question "What does it really mean to be Australian?" Aussies are known for their "fair dinkum" attitude, their sense of "fair play" and also for their convictions and their willingness to help the "Aussie battler".
Unfortunately, the time has come where we, as Australian motorists, are now the Aussie battlers. We are battling for our Constitutional rights to drive freely on our roads - Section 92 of the commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) clearly states "On the imposition of uniform duties of customs, trade, commerce, and intercourse among the States, whether by means of internal carriage or ocean navigation, shall be absolutely free."
We are also battling for our fundamental right to be considered innocent until proven guilty - Section 8, Sub Section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act clearly states; "That all grants and promises of fines and forfeitures of particular persons before conviction, are illegal and void."
The average Aussie drives on some form of road every day, and most people take care, they focus on what they are doing yet they are still being punished unfairly. Sure, there are some idiots out there doing the wrong thing but that will always be the case. And, as is almost always ALSO the case, it is the INNOCENT motorists that are being punished and NOT the idiots who should be.
The article below confirms that even more unjust and unlawful cameras are being set up every day. This particular article is form a Western Australian paper but, as we're sure you are all aware, this is going on ALL around Australia. In fact, WA, probably still has the LEAST number of cameras operating compared to other states.
So, why is it that we, the INNOCENT and HONEST motorists of Australia, those with strong convictions, who thrive on helping each other out in tough times are still standing idly by and blindly paying fines that we simply should NOT be?
Do we still really believe that these cameras are somehow reducing the road toll? How can this be when EVERY piece of HONEST research shows the exact OPPOSITE? If you have ANY doubts about this, please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html right now and read the ACTUAL statistics, in some cases, from the very government agencies that are issuing the fines in the first place. We have conclusive PROOF that speed is only "a" factor in 5% of crashes. This means that 95% of accidents have NOTHING to do with speed!!! That's right, read that again, NINETY FIVE percent of accidents have NOTHING to do with speed!
So, why do they keep shoving this absolute RUBBISH down our throats each day that these speed cameras are about saving lives. The simple mathematics PROVE that it is just about revenue raising.
Look at the figures in that article again and find a 10 year old with a calculator to explain it to you in simple terms:
WA currently has 25 speed cameras and 30 red light cameras.
These numbers are set to "at least double"
A speed camera costs $170,000 and a red light camera costs $80,000
To double the current number would provide the following equation:
25 X $170,000 = $4,250,000
30 X $80,000 = $2,400,000
So, the total cost of doubling the number of cameras currently used would therefore be $6,650,000.
Now, further down the article, it states that a third of all camera revenue or $15 million, whichever is highest, goes to the Road Trauma Trust Fund. So, if they don't get the $15 million from the cameras, then where do they get it from? OBVIOUSLY, they get it from the cameras.
So, now let's do the maths again. Let's assume that the Road Trauma Trust Fund ONLY gets the minimum guaranteed $15 million. We've established that it MUST come from the cameras, because they can't get it from anywhere else and unless someone would like to show us a government budget that shows money for that fund coming from anywhere else, then it simply MUST come from camera revenue.
But the article says that it MUST be one third of camera revenue or $15 million, whichever is HIGHER. Therefore, since they can't get the $15 million from anywhere else then one third of camera revenue HAS TO BE equal to or greater than $15 million. That means that they must generate $45 million in revenue from these cameras.
Now, you don't have to be Warren Buffet to know that a $45 million return on a $6.65 million investment is a great deal. And, if you could do that deal many times over then why wouldn't you? And that is EXACTLY what is happening in states like Victoria, NSW and Queensland, the number of new cameras being introduced is completely out of control because of this simple calculation. They are making a 675% profit from every camera they install!
The simple fact is that the line "But Mr Johnson, who flagged more red-light cameras last September, said the cost would be offset quickly by infringement fines." simply says it ALL. It is all about increasing the number of infringements, NOTHING to do with actual road safety. Please remember that their ultimate justification for these devices is that they save lives. They pathetically attempt to justify this baseless lie by suggesting that speed cameras cause people to slow down and therefore lives are saved. Well, as we pointed out via the statistics on our website (see a few paragraphs above), the connection between speed and accidents is totally flawed, as is the argument that speed cameras make people slow down.
Again, explain this to a 10 year old and see what response you get:
How can a ticket that you receive in the mail 2 weeks or more AFTER an event has happened actually slow you down? It is simply NOT possible. Perhaps, maybe, at a stretch, if they painted these cameras bright yellow and made them obvious, or the fixed camera locations were made public - as they are in Victoria - then you MIGHT, at best, be able to claim that a speed camera caused someone to slow down MOMENTARILY, as they drove past it but how on earth can they claim that a "hidden" camera - which they are promoting in this article - can achieve this? The fact, is that they CAN'T and again, the mathematics proves it.
If cameras really DID cause people to slow down then why are they issuing MORE Infringement Notices in EVERY state of Australia than ever before? Also, how can they possibly budget for a MINIMUM of $15 million in revenue (which is just ONE third, remember) if they actually believe that people will slow down and therefore they won't have to pay a fine because these cameras are such an effective deterrent? It simply does NOT add up and it is NOW time to do something about it.
We would urge you ALL to keep an eye out in your papers and other media for articles such as this and continue to send them to us. Obviously, we have a LOT on our plate and we can't look out for every new media article that is released so it is our Members that help to keep us up to date. We would rather receive notification 10 times about an article than miss it all together. Also, we would urge you ALL to pass these e-mails around to EVERYONE you know who drives in this country so we can get as many people fighting back at once as possible - that is the ONLY way we are going to ultimately change this corrupt and inefficient system. And, finally, the best way to get through is to write back to the various reporters and direct them to our website or send them messages of your own making it clear that the people of Australia do NOT want these devices, they do NOT believe in them anymore and they will NOT be paying the unlawful and unjust fines issued by these devices any longer.
Please remember, these agencies do NOT care about the road toll, they ONLY care about the revenue. If they TRULY cared about the road toll then surely SOMEONE would have approached us in the past 18 months and at least spoken to us about the NUMEROUS well-researched strategies that we have for reducing the road toll in Australia. Instead, we are attacked and websites are put up making false and baseless claims that our information doesn't work.
The weekly influx of Testimonials we receive from all around Australia PROVES that our strategies work and it further proves that these agencies are NOT concerned about our strategies for reducing the road toll, they are concerned about our strategies that show people exactly how and why they should NEVER pay any kind of traffic fine again!
Now, as we have said MANY times before, if we could just walk into Parliament and give them our strategies and know that they would be implemented, then we never would have created this website or e-book in the first place. But, the TRUTH is that these agencies are earning ONE BILLION DOLLARS a year from these unjust and unlawful fines and the ONLY way we will get them to stop is NOT when the road toll changes but when their INCOME reduces AND the road toll is still going up. That way, they are left with egg all over their faces, they have all these cameras issuing fines that no-one is paying anymore and the road toll still hasn't improved so they HAVE to admit that we were right all along and change the system.
So, let's get back to that article again for a moment because there is even more in there that affects every one of you. They go on to mention that "Cameras were not the sole solution, but were an important part of a comprehensive strategy, including a more visible police presence, safer roads and safer vehicles" but NOWHERE did they give ANY figures of how the roads were going to be improved or how much money would be provided to build new roads. No figures were provided for how many new traffic cops would be on the road or an amount to fund the numbers of police needed. And there was certainly NO mention of ANY kind of ANYTHING to do with ANY initiatives for increasing vehicle safety. As we have said all along, we have the safest vehicles of all time on our roads yet we are still restricted to road rules that were created for vehicles 50 years ago!
Please read over ALL the strategies - on our Vision for the Future page - that we believe need to be implemented to ACTUALLY improve road safety for ALL motorists, not the ridiculous EXCUSES provided in articles such as this.
If you haven't yet become a Member, please go to http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html now BEFORE it's too late. With all the new flawed cameras that are going up each day it is only a matter of time before you receive an unjust and unlawful fine. Remember, prevention is better than cure and having our information at hand BEFORE you receive a fine is the BEST prevention you can have.
As for their ridiculous claims that "If you obey the law and don't speed you pay nothing in fines, regardless of how many cameras there are." If it was that simple then, as we stated above, why are more people being fined than ever before? Why are their more segments on A Current Affair and similar shows about faulty cameras, cars being done for speeds they couldn't possibly be doing etc. than ever before? Our e-book exposes the TRUTH about these flawed devices.
Did you know that most cameras are set up across multi-lane roads? This way, one car can trigger the camera (quite possibly without actually exceeding the speed limit) and up to FOUR cars can actually be photographed. The agency then sends the fine to ALL four motorists thereby receiving four times the revenue from just ONE motorist, who probably didn't even do anything wrong in the first place and the other 3 are completely INNOCENT victims of this scam that goes on EVERY day on major roads around Australia!
This is just one of the MANY deceptive and unlawful tactics that these agencies use to extort money from INNOCENT motorists. Slowing down is NOT going to help you one iota in a situation like this so please don't be fooled by the rubbish that the media promotes about these devices. Grab a copy of our e-book and learn the TRUTH before it is too late.
Remember, we offer a FULL 30 day money back guarantee so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by reading our information. If you don't have a fine yet, then our e-book will ensure that you are fully prepared for the inevitable, when it does finally happen and, not only that, but we guarantee that you will be blown away by all the information that we have in our e-book that doesn't even specifically relate to avoiding unjust fines but focuses more on ACTUAL road safety initiatives and freedom for all Australian motorists.
We have Members from all walks of life, from all states of Australia and we have been around for over 18 months now and have only had a dozen requests for a refund so you can be GUARANTEED that our information will be of great interest and will be an invaluable resource - in fact, we believe that it will be the BEST motoring investment you EVER make.
So please, become a Member today, pass this e-mail around to EVERYONE you know and let this be the year that we finally put an end to these ridiculous revenue raising cameras and we finally improve road safety for ALL motorists in Australia.
Stay safe on the roads and have a bloody ripper Australia Day!

Confirmation of our Greatest Success so far!
We have just received media confirmation of our GREATEST overall success to date. Now, no matter which state you live in you MUST read the article below from the Herald Sun newspaper in Victoria because it will ultimately affect EVERYONE, no matter what state of Australia you live in.
We are aware that the actions proposed in the article below already exist in some other states, but that is NOT why we have sent this article. The key is to look carefully at the facts and figures presented in the article and to see what a HUGE impact our Members are now making.
Victoria has the lowest speed tolerances of ALL states in Australia, they issue MORE fines than any other state in Australia yet their road toll was the HIGHEST of all states over the recent Christmas period. This PROVES beyond ANY doubt that speed detection devices are ONLY there for raising revenue and NOTHING else.
These agencies are now going to unbelievable lengths - no matter how illegal (as we will explain in a moment) - to try and recover fines that are simply NOT being paid by people who are effectively using our system!
Please, take a moment to click the link below and read the article and then read the subsequent points we raise:
Firstly, "During 2007-08, more than 332,000 such orders lapsed because no action was taken." Aussie Speeding Fines began in April of 2007 and we have been informing and educating people on the most effective strategies for avoiding unjust and unlawful fines since then. Interestingly, the article explains that "The biggest jump was between 2007-08 and the previous year; an extra 81,000 enforcement orders lapsed." This was PRECISELY when Members started using our information to fight back!
So, if you had ANY doubt at all as to whether our strategies really worked and whether we were REALLY making an impact, you can now well and truly rest assured. Please also be sure to take a few moments to read over all the Testimonials from our current Members at www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html
Also, if you have ANY doubt that these fines were just about revenue raising and had NOTHING to do with safety at all then read the following line again: "During 2006-07, 4.1 million infringement notices were issued across all organisations." Now, go and multiply 4.1 million by an average fine of $100odd dollars and you begin to understand why they are absolutely bleeding and going to these extraordinary lengths to try and save themselves.
Now, at this point some of you may be concerned as to how to deal with these new developments. Well, as you know, here at Aussie Speeding Fines, we are always one step ahead and we already have the answers for you:
1.Neither Rob Hulls, nor anyone else for that matter, can suspend your car registration. You see, your car is ALWAYS registered, because it remains on the Vicroads (or other state equivalent) database for life. For example, if you decide to put your car into storage and therefore not pay your registration fee for say 10 years and then decided on put your car back on the road, you would simply get a roadworthy and then pay the registration fee at that time and away you'd go - your car would still be there on the database, they would NOT actually enter the details again. Now, since there is no such fine for "failing to pay a registration fee" then it is irrelevant. The charge of driving an un-registered vehicle is a false and baseless charge.
2.If you provide Vicroads with the required fee at the time of registration renewal and they fail to renew your registration then you can sue them. Vicroads, like all other similar companies (NSW RTA, Queensland Transport etc.) are exactly that, they are a COMPANY, they are NOT a government body. So, they have no right to take action, or not take an action (such as failing to renew your registration, if you pay the required fee) that would cause you to be in breach of a law. Also, if they do not accept your payment then they have no right to make any claim against you down the track for that money as you have tendered a valid payment and they have not accepted it. So, in essence, they would actually have to renew your registration for free!
3.Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act 1980 clearly states, "That all grants and promises of fines and forfeitures of particular persons before conviction, are illegal and void." So, if you haven't been to court and been convicted then ANY fine is illegal and void and they cannot force you to forfeit your registration. Our e-book also has further details of why any conviction is invalid anyway, even if you HAVE been to court.
4.Even if the above didn't exist, you can't lawfully and Constitutionally pay the fine anyway, given Section 115 of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) and sections 9, 11, 16 and 22 of the Currency Act 1965.
So, this attempt to SCARE motorists into paying their fines is tantamount to EXTORTION and/or BLACKMAIL and we explain, in much greater detail than above, in our e-book EXACTLY how to fight back against these outlandish scare tactics.
And finally, of greatest concern to us is the line by shadow attorney-general Robert Clarke which states that "While the honest motorist pays the fine, even if they believe it is unfair, the defaulters who thumb their nose at the law are getting away with it," Now please read that line and hopefully you will be as utterly disgusted as we were - "HONEST motorists pays their fine, even if they believe it was UNFAIR!" Now, how can that possibly be justice?
How can we possibly stand by for even another day and allow this kind of thing to go on? WE are the ones who elected these people to look after US and our interests, yet here we have these same people urging or commending people - who are INNOCENT - for paying fines that they believe are unfair! This is an OUTRAGE and we MUST continue our fight.
The line about "defaulters thumbing their nose at the law" is a complete twist of the facts. These so-called "defaulters" are our Members who know their RIGHTS, they know why the so-called "laws" they refer to are actually NOT law at all and, as the article says, they are fighting back and winning!
This article PROVES that we are making some serious headway but there is still MUCH to be done. So please, we would ask you ALL to pass this e-mail onto to your ENTIRE database - anyone and everyone who drives a motor vehicle in this country needs to be aware of this information.
We urge all of you who have not yet become Members and who do not yet have access to ALL our information and Resources to do so ASAP and we would ask you to urge everyone you know to also join us and put an end to this crazy and corrupt system that would treat INNOCENT and HONEST motorists - by their own definition - as criminals.
Thank you one and all for your continued support and your efforts in making this success story a reality and please urge everyone you know to go to www.aussiespeedingfines.com straight away and join the ranks of truly informed and educated motorists in this country.

Holiday road toll figures - it's time to make a REAL change!
Firstly, the Team at Aussie Speeding Fines would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year. We trust you all enjoyed your break and had a safe time on our roads over the holiday period.
Speaking of which, the figures have been released for the recent Christmas holiday period and unfortunately, it will be no surprise to many of you that the National holiday road toll figure INCREASED by over 16% for the 2008/2009 Christmas period over the previous figures for the 2007/2008 period. You can see the statistics for yourself via the links below
Australian Government Statistics page providing 07/08 holiday road toll figures:
National 9 News report for /08/09 holiday road toll figures:
Now, the fact that 56 people died on our roads this holiday period as opposed the 48 that died in the same period last year is bad enough BUT this is only HALF the story.
The fact that is NOT reported is how many MORE inaccurate and unlawful speed detection devices are now operating across the country over and above the ridiculous number that were already operating last year. Furthermore, there is no report, that we can find, that shows how much MONEY was generated from these devices over the holiday period.
As we have said ALL along, these devices are NOT a deterrent. There is NO point sending someone out a ticket a week or more AFTER they have supposedly exceeded some arbitrary speed limit! That is not going to save ANYONE'S life and, as the figures PROVE, it is certainly NOT going to reduce the road toll.
Enough is now enough, we simply MUST make 2009 the year that we ALL get together and FORCE the governments of this country to listen to our collective voices and REMOVE these illegal an inaccurate devices from our roads. People no longer believe in the effectiveness of speed cameras, we have shown time and again that speed is one of the smallest contributing factors in accidents, NOT the largest as the so-called "authorities" try and tell us.
Speed cameras are simply about revenue raising and NOTHING else. We have asked ANYONE to prove to us that they do ANYTHING other than cause people to slow down momentarily as they pass a known fixed camera site and then resume the speed they were previously driving at and NO-ONE has been able to give us ANY information to the contrary.
So, we urge you ALL to take action, get a copy of our updated 85 page e-book and follow the simple step-by-step strategies to fight back and SHOW these agencies that we will no longer accept their unjust and unlawful fines and that collectively, we will NOT stop until these devices have been switched off and taken down, just as they were a few years ago in Hawaii.
Sure, this is a one BILLION dollar industry but TOGETHER we really CAN make a difference. Just by fighting your own fines you stop the flow of money into the government coffers. Your actions will, in turn, inspire others to take similar action and they too will further reduce the flow of money. Then, finally, when the money flow is reduced to a dribble they will be faced with the unshakable TRUTH that these devices do NOT work, they are NOT a deterrent, they do NOT save lives and now, they don't even make money. So, they will HAVE to be switched off. Remember, that it is OUR hard working tax dollars that pay for these devices and we have a right to say where we want our money to go.
And please, go to our website now, www.aussiespeedingfines.com BEFORE you get a fine because we have strategies that will help you avoid receiving an unjust fine in the first place and we can show you how to EFFECTIVELY deal with these unlawful fines from the moment you receive them. Remember, the moment you open the envelope you have missed one of the simplest strategies for avoiding the fine.
Please, urge EVERYONE who know who drives on our roads to become a Member and let's make THIS the year that our roads TRULY do become SAFER for everyone. Also, don't forget to join our Affiliate program and earn commissions just by referring people to our site. If just 3 members join as a result of your recommendation then your Membership is, in essence, FREE. Please see the affiliate link on our website for further details.
Thanks and have a safe, successful and prosperous 2009!
