2014 News/Updates

31 December, 2014

Our 25% off Christmas promotion has been extended plus an outrageous admission from police proving that they are all about revenue raising!

- Intro

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year. We trust that 2015 is a safe, prosperous and empowering year for all of you reading this.

We note that many people have taken advantage of our 25% off Christmas promotion that we have been running for the past week but, sadly, we also know that we will be inundated in the New Year with e-mails from people that have returned home from their holidays to find the inevitable, unjust and unlawful traffic fine waiting for them.

In addition to that, we have also been made aware of some truly outrageous tactics that the police are now employing to raise revenue – see our section below – so we want to ensure that everyone’s New Year starts off in a positive way so, we have decided to extend our current promotion for another 5 days.

This will give those who have been “too busy” during the Christmas/New Year period to take advantage of our offer to either return from holiday, or to at least have additional time to take advantage of this great offer. This discount offer will finish at midnight on Monday, the 5th of January 2015 though.

Please note that the cost of postage will still rise on the 1st of January and is not subject to this discount. As we have explained previously, we have not increased our E-Book Membership price, or our postage price, in over 7 years and we are currently spending considerably more than what it physically costs us to post items out. We do, however, note that all hard copy orders placed after the 31st of December will be sent out by Express Post so most people will get them the day after they place they order!

All you have to do to take advantage of this exceptional 25% off discount offer is to go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - select that option that best suits you and enter the word “Christmas” into the coupon code box that comes up on the left hand side of the order page and then hit “apply” and the 25% discount will automatically be taken off the price of your order.

And please, once you’ve placed your own order, be sure to pass this e-mail and/or the details of this great offer onto everyone that you know because the more people that have access to our licence-saving information, the more quickly we can put an end to the madness that is detailed in some of the following sections.

- Outrageous admission by the police on the public record

One of our founding members and long-time supporters was quoted in the following Herald Sun article earlier this week - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/secrecy-more-important-than-accuracy-in-speed-tests-traffic-cop-tells-court/story-fni0fee2-1227168655630 - after it was revealed that a Police Sergeant admitted, in open court, that he believed that it was more important to remain hidden – so that motorist didn’t see him and slow down - than it was to get an accurate reading on motorists’ speed.

Yes, you read that correctly!

Now, it’s one thing if the police hide behind bus stops or bushes or things like that – it happens all the time and we have recently reported on a number of those instances. But, for this officer to say that hiding is more important than getting an accurate reading is, quite simply, outrageous!

As we cover on our Advanced Membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ - the site selection criteria and the manufacturers training manuals – all of which are able to be downloaded from that website - clearly detail that the police are supposed to be as close to parallel as possible to the traffic – not 10 metres away behind trees – and they must be able to provide a tracking history and get a solid, 3 second reading for it to be admissible in court. It’s a pity that Robert Brown didn’t have our e-book and access to these arguments.

But, more importantly, the police have clear rules that they are required to follow and clearly failed to do so in this instance– since when did they get the lawful right to break their own rules, just to nab motorists supposedly breaking other rules!!!

The fact that this particular officer stated, in court and on the public record, that he believes it is more important to hide from motorists to get an accurate reading so that they don’t “see him and slow down” is just too insulting for words – is that not the whole point of the speed detection program,, to cause motorists to slow down!!!

We urge everyone reading this to contact Sergeant Parello on (03) 5264 3400 – or, better still, his superiors – and let them know what you think about that outrageous behaviour. We are reminded of the quote by Edmund Burke tat says, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”. So, please don’t just sit there and “do nothing” – let the Victoria police know how absolutely incensed you are by this. Maybe, just maybe, the message might finally get through to them.

Further to that Herald Sun article, A Current Affair followed up on that story with this - http://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/australias-speeding-fine-outrage/vi-BBhjkte?ocid=mailsignoutmd

They say that this cop’s admission has sparked “widespread outrage” but, has it really? Time will tell if the general population actually takes action and let’s this cop know what they think about his behaviour or not. We certainly hope it does turn out to spark “widespread outrage” though – to the point where people get angry and fight back against this insanity!

It is, quite obviously, “just another case of blatant revenue raising”, however, most people reading this already understand that – the question is, what are you going to do about it?

The fact that the “police spokesperson” tries to “justify” it as a “safety” issue or something of that nature is just an insult to our intelligence. There is not a single point that police spokesperson makes that adequately responds to the excellent points that our long time member and supporter, Mike Palmer, raises.

What is even most hard hitting – when looked at properly - than all of the above, is the revenue figures that they quote at the end of this story. As shocking as some people may find them, they still fall well short of the true figure of one billion dollars a year which is what is currently raised as revenue from traffic fines from around the country.

We are reminded of yet another saying here, “If you owe the bank a million dollars but cannot pay then you have a problem. However, if you owe the bank a billion dollars and cannot pay, then the bank has a problem” – we believe the same principle applies here.

If a handful of people, here and there, are issued with fines then they are the problem BUT if millions of motorists each year are issued with fines then the problem lies with the system, or the laws themselves, and not the motorists!

The current system does not work. The road toll is not going down – despite their assertions that they cause people to “reduce speeds” and “save lives” – and, the reality is that this is simply about revenue raising and has absolutely nothing to do with “road safety”.

And, even worse is the fact that every time you or someone you know just “gives in”, says “it’s too hard to fight back” and/or just blindly “pays up”, you are sending these agencies a loud and clear message that what they are doing is working and to keep doing more of it.

Is that really the message you want to be sending them?

If not, please grab a copy of our e-book now – especially out our discounted price – and start fighting back against this madness!

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We have, once again, received some more testimonials and feedback in the past week and we have included those for you below so that you can see that our Members are still using our information to successfully challenge and defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

Our first is from a Member who has successfully used our information to defeat both a parking fine and a speeding fine.

Hi there,

I really enjoy reading your regular letters and I thought to brighten your day with a couple of good news.

First I had a win against the City of Kingston for a Parking Fine at Southland shopping centre. I sent all the letters mentioned in your book, but they were totally ignored saying that there is no legal basis for them and no one has ever won the argument about  the validity of local councils. So I elected to go to court.

At the contest hearing, I again argue the validity of local councils, saying that the signs are very misleading with zones of 2 hours and zones of 4 hours and I thought some signs were added since the fine.

I asked to show me a full brief of the alleged offence. Kerry Piner showed me a photo of my car and on a separate photo, a white mark on a tyre. I told her to prove that the mark on the tyre was actually on my car. She could not and was surprised about my question.

I asked her to withdraw the fine and she refused. I told her that I will challenge the fine and left the room and the court, without going to the clerk to have a date for the hearing.

Two weeks later, I received the attached letter saying that the fine has been withdrawn because the issuing officer could not attend the court on the day. Strange, because it is not difficult to set another date.

Anyway, I won.

Secondly, I got a speeding fine in a 60 zone, allegedly travelling at 68 Km/h. I wrote to the traffic camera office explaining why I was not speeding and giving many reasons.

This was not accepted, so I elected to go to court.

I did not used your letters because I thought that I had enough evidences to the contrary. (See my partial attached submission. )During the meeting with the police prosecutor, he told me that he never saw these arguments and it should be an interesting hearing.

At the hearing, the magistrate listened to my arguments, the police prosecutor was very interested and did not really argue with them. I crossed examined the camera operator and he also had no idea of what I was talking about, especially the rule 61% and 82% of the location of radar beam left hand setup.

The main evidences came from the Victoria Police Training  Manuals where all sorts of  possible interferences are listed and should be avoided. ( See my submission ) Here there were High power lines above the speed camera car, a Metal fence opposite the car and the camera probably badly setup.

It lasted more than 2 hours.

While we were waiting for the magistrate decision, I had a good and pleasant talk with the police prosecutor. She was not confident of winning. At the end, the magistrate came back, was not too sure what to say, elaborated on the case and my evidences to the contrary and decided that the case was proven but dismissed.

I am still not sure what it really means, but I did not have to pay the fine and if I lost one point, I don't care since I had 12 of them.

I would encourage anybody to challenge every speeding fines, especially if they think that they were not speeding.

Check for the possible interferences, challenge the operator and the photo.

Good luck.

Gerard – Vic.

P.S. If it can be useful to anyone and legally possible and without liability  to me and nobody can identity me, so you can publish this letter , my submission and all the attachments.

And, our second is a short and sweet one from a Member that used our information to defeat a fine in court.

Hi guys,

Firstly great job, I've been following you for quite some time now, I have used some of your advice in court and laughed as the police prosecutor turned to jelly and dismissed the case.

Incredible Aussie Speeding Fines discount promotion for the Christmas break!

- Intro

We know that you are all busy with last minute preparations for the Christmas break so we will keep this as short as possible.

It has been less than a week since we last wrote to you and already we have been inundated with new media articles detailing the blatant revenue raising that is in full force now. We have also received a number of e-mails from motorists who have received unjust and unlawful fines even before the Christmas “flash for cash” season has begun in earnest.

So, we thought, “What else can we do to help motorists out this Christmas?” We wish we could just give our information away for free to people, but that would mean no more regular e-mail updates, no more on-going research, no more affiliate commissions, no more Facebook group, no more free business cards and bumper stickers and, our families would go hungry this Christmas, and forever more, if we did that and, we’d like think that no-one out there would want that to happen.

Instead, we have decided to offer a fantastic Christmas discount on our E-Book Memberships to all motorists so that there is no obstacle to every motorist in Australia joining us. We ultimately want to see our information in the hands of every motorist - whilst still ensuring that we continue to feed our families – and we think this is the best way to make that happen.

So, if you would like to get a copy of our e-book, at a price that will potentially never be repeated again or, if you would like to find out even more reasons why every motorist in Australia should have our information, please read on ....

- Details of our Christmas promotion

As we noted in the section above, we have decided to run a very special Christmas Promotion that will allow all motorists to obtain a copy of our e-book at a full 25% off the usual price. Even at full price, our e-book is, quite simply, the best motoring investment you will ever make – but, at 25% off though, it is an absolute no brainer, just get it!

So, from now until New Year’s Eve, we are offering any of our full digital or hard copy versions of our licence saving information at a full 25% off! That’s right, for the next 9 days, you can get a copy of our simple, proven, step-by-step system for defeating all unjust and unlawful traffic fines, including free updates for life, for as little as $50.

As we have explained many times before, the sad truth is that the government will simply not listen to all our truly life saving strategies and our plans for true road safety whilst they are still raking in a billion dollars a year from motorists with the current corrupt, flawed and ineffective system that currently exists. The only way to make them listen is to stop the money flowing in and the only way to do that is to get everyone to fight every fine they get – at the end of the day, money talks.

We realise that, at this time of year especially, money can be a bit tight so we want to remove that as an obstacle that may be stopping anyone from getting access to our valuable information – especially at this time of year when it will be needed the most. So, if you go to our Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and enter the word “Christmas” into the coupon code box that comes up on the left hand side of the order page and then hit “apply”, the 25% discount will automatically be taken off the price of your order.

Most people have house and contents insurance, most people have care insurance but very few have the kind of insurance that this e-book provides for their licence – which is, ultimately, one of the most valuable things they have. Just stop and think for one minute what your life would be like if you lost your licence, you couldn’t drive, you couldn’t go to work, you couldn’t pay your rent or mortgage etc.  At 25% off our licence-saving e-book, this is an opportunity not to be missed so please go to our Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Memberships.html - and place your order now. Please note that this discount only applies full e-book orders – either digital or hard copy – and not to orders solely for our Seminar DVD, Hard Copy Upgrades or the re-setting of lost e-book details. The cost of postage is also not subject to the discount.

Now, just in case you’ve been hiding under a rock the past 8 years or have somehow missed our regular e-mail updates - please feel free to look over our News/Updates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News%7B47%7DUpdates.html – where you can read every e-mail update we’ve ever sent out – which will not only give you an idea of what you get as part of your Membership with us but also a clear indication of how absolutely insane the revenue raising really has become. This page, in conjunction with our on-line petition page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - will clearly show you why it is so important for you to have our information and to fight back against every unjust and unlawful fine you receive.

Now, we have told everyone about our bumper stickers and business cards until we’re blue in the face, our Facebook group now has almost 6,000 Members – please look it up and feel free to join if you haven’t already done so. We have reminded people of our Affiliate program and have updated our Testimonial’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html- in case there are still any people out there who doubt the effectiveness of our information.

In fact, short of giving our information away for free – which we simply can’t do because of the aforementioned on-going costs in the section above – we’re at a loss as to what else we can do to get our information into the hands of the innocent motorists who really need our information, especially over what is going to be the greatest/highest revenue raising period in the history of this country.

So please, take advantage of this incredible offer because, we have not raised the price of our e-book in 7 years and, although we don’t intend to next year either, postage costs have increased dramatically and we are currently only charging two thirds of what it actually costs us to post so we will  have to adjust our postage prices next year and that means, that, as an overall package, this is the cheapest that our Hard Copy E-Book Membership’s – which are always the versions that we recommend - will ever be again.

Please remember that we will be finishing this promotion off at midnight on New Year’s Eve so go to our E-Book Membership page now - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and sign up before the Christmas madness makes you forget about this great deal and the time passes to take advantage of it.

And then, once you’ve done that, please be sure to pass this e-mail onto everyone on your contact list, spread it around on Facebook and like and let’s make 2015 the year that we bring this corrupt, ineffective system to a grinding halt!

- Proof that the current system is just one big revenue raising scam

We’re confident that most people reading this e-mail are already aware that the current system is all about raising revenue and has absolutely nothing to do with “road safety”. But, in case you have forwarded this e-mail onto someone – being sure to remove the “Un-subscribe” link at the bottom so that someone doesn’t accidentally remove you from our database – we will provide even further evidence of this fact.

As we noted in the Intro section above, we have received a number of articles since we last wrote to you and these, once again, clearly show how the system is geared up as a business, to simply make money.

The first article is from the Brisbane Times and boasts about how the QLD toll road system was sold for a huge profit. You can read the full details here - http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/7-billion-queensland-motorways-makes-healthy-profit-for-qic-20140423-374ta.html

This clearly and obviously shows that this is just a business to them. The fact that the QLD government had absolutely no right what-so-ever to sell the road system, because it was created in fee simple and belongs to We, The people, is yet another issue that is covered in our e-book.

The good news is that, as we reported in last week’s e-mail update, many people are now coming to understand this and fight back against these unjust, unlawful, private fines and they are refusing to pay the tolls and the fines themselves. In case you missed it, please be sure to have a read through that article, which you can find near the top of this page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2014-%252d-Current-Updates.html  

The second article that was sent to us details the shocking story of people who were genuinely trying to help motorists avoid fines but were actually taken to court and sued. Yes, you read that correctly, a group of people who went around putting money in other people’s meters so that they wouldn’t receive a fine were taken to the Supreme Court in the US because the city involved lost so much money as a result that they had to take action against them.

You can read the full story here - http://thefreethoughtproject.com/activists-face-supreme-court-ruling-paying-parking-meters-saving-motorists-80000/ - and we trust that you will be as disgusted as we were to read about how absolutely insane the government’s desperate need to fleece innocent motorists of their hard earned cash has become!

The points that they make towards the end of the article about communities working together and the fact that “Numbers make all the difference in what is possible to achieve” are very relevant , right here in Australia. As we have said many times before, we need to get every motorist to challenge every fine they receive and send a united message to our government that their current behaviour will simply not be tolerated!

And, the final article that we wanted to bring to your attention this week is about the follow up report that has now been completed in Chicago as a result of the bribery and corruption issues surrounding RedFlex and their red light cameras.

As this article details - http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/12/major-chicago-study-finds-red-light-cameras-not-safer-cause-more-rear-end-injuries/ - a study has now proven that red light cameras do not save lives at all and, in fact, they cause more rear-end injuries – something that we have been saying for many years and something we know that a lot of motorists in Australia have experienced first-hand as driver’s slam on their brakes – whether it is safe to do so or not – just to avoid a red light camera fine.

If you haven’t yet done so, please have a read through this page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - which explains this point in greater detail and be sure to add your signature to our on-line petition page, to have all speed and red light cameras removed from service in Australia.

- Some final thoughts

We would like to remind everyone that the team at Aussie Speeding Fines will be working away throughout the entire Christmas/New Year break, answering all of your e-mails and processing orders because we know that this is the busiest time of year for the revenue raisers. We know that many of you will be heading off before we write again so we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous 2015 to follow.

If anyone is feeling generous and would like to acknowledge and support the great work that we do throughout the year, informing and educating the motoring public then please feel free to make a small donation (or a large one J) via the Paypal “Donate” button on the top right hand section of our Home page – it will be very much appreciated.

And, if you haven’t already done so, please be sure to refer to the section below and e-mail us with your postal address and we can send you out some business cards and bumper stickers – completely free of charge – so you can help us spread the word when the inevitable conversation about “ridiculous fines” comes up between family and friends at your Christmas gatherings.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your on-going support of our ASF Vision - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - and we note that we have achieved some fantastic results this year and we look forward to working with more Aussie motorists than ever before, in 2015, to make some real changes that will genuinely make our roads safer and make driving far more pleasurable for all motorists.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We received some more testimonials and feedback in the past week so we would like to quickly share those with you.

Our first is from a long-time Member who has successfully used our information to defeat yet another unjust and unlawful parking fine.

Hello Team

Firstly I wanted to offer words of admiration and appreciation for your relentless and passionate efforts to fight the oppressive fines.

The impact - I have again successfully defended a parking fine (standing in loading zone).

The presiding magistrate actually open the hearing by stating that she notices there is extensive correspondence, which she had chosen not to read and address. She asked me to confirm my plea, which was not guilty.

Earlier, when conferring with a barrister on duty, I pointed out the photos were not a reliable evidence as the date shown on them was reflecting only the month and year, but not exact day, I was told the written witness statement (the council ranger) is sufficient evidence.

However, the magistrate accepted my argument of on extenuating circumstances leading to the breach of the rule.

It seems that in my case, the 3 letter process had little impact. However, it motivated me to fight the fine and forced me to seek other "angles" of defense.

Regardless, the sense of justice being done was highly satisfactory.

So, thank you for educating and motivating to stand up to this oppressive rules and governments

I wish the whole team Merry Christmas and Safe New Year.

Regards
Beata - NSW

And, our second is some very powerful feedback from a former motoring journalist from QLD.

Hi there,

I am a former motoring journalist on Brisbane’s Courier-Mail newspaper.  When double demerit points were introduced in Queensland for holiday periods the motoring staff did a story pointing out that less people were killed on the roads per day during the holiday period than the rest of the year and the double demerit points move was more of a ``seen to be taking a firm hand’’ step rather than anything likely to reduce the road toll.

The story did not fit in with the paper’s pontificating on unacceptable road toll and unquestioning acceptance of police department press releases and never saw the light of day.  Authorities in all states should be asked if the present toll is unacceptable, what figure would be acceptable or tolerable.  All of them will say no deaths at all which is clearly and obviously unattainable. The plus for the authorities of course is that if you fail to set a target you can keep raising fines and demerit points and other penalties ad infinitum. Since a zero road toll in any state will never be achieved the authorities are giving themselves carte blanche to slug motorists even harder.

In Queensland we are bombarded with the slogan ``Every k over is a killer’’. Anybody who believes a driver doing 101km/h is a homicidal maniac and everyone doing 99km/h is a prudent, safe driver, is an idiot. Speed limits take no notice of driver ability, vehicle capability, road conditions or weather conditions. It never ceases to amaze me that courts regularly find drivers should not have been travelling at the speed limit because of adverse conditions such as weather but never apply the same logic to exceeding the limit when conditions make it perfectly safe.

I worked as a motorcycle road tester on a specialist publication in England for three years and I have ridden bikes in most countries of Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand. Only in Australia are the authorities overwhelmingly obsessed with speed. But as events in Germany only a few decades ago clearly show, if you tell the populace something is so often enough, and for long enough, 99 per cent will accept whatever you are telling them as a fact.  In Queensland we have 110, 100, 90, 80, 70, 60, 50, 40, 20 and 10 km/h speed limits in various locations and the 100km/h limit on various stretches of road is frequently dropping to 90km/h. Are the authorities telling us a formerly dangerous stretch of 100km/h road is now safe because the speed limit has been dropped by 10km//h? If so, they’re dreaming.

Of course road works to make the road safer does raise any revenue so that is not really one of their options. And as one motorcycle cop told me the blitz on dangerous or careless driving during the holiday period is confined by budget restraints of the first and last couple of days of the holiday period. Speed cameras, on the other hand, don’t have to be paid overtime.

Cheers

16 December, 2014
The revenue raising madness is in full swing as the Christmas break nears - here's what you can do about it!

- Intro

We know it has been less than a week since we last wrote to you but the revenue raising madness has hit new highs and we felt that we just had to share some of this latest information with you before you take a break over the coming Christmas/New Year period.

Not only that but we wanted to give you all a last reminder that our fully guaranteed, licence saving e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” – makes a perfect Christmas present for friends or family and, if you get your order in within the next day or so, there is still a great chance that we can get it to you in time for Christmas.

So, if you want to place an order – that we will send off the day we receive it – for a most valuable and memorable gift for someone, then please go to this page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and select the option that best suits you or your recipient’s needs. And remember, the absolute best time to have our e-book and our information is before you actually receive a fine.

Now, we know you’re all very busy with lead into Christmas so let’s get straight into it ….

- Unmarked motorbikes now being used to raise revenue

The first article that came across our desk since last week’s e-mail update was a story from WA, where the police there are now using unmarked motorbikes to detect motorists doing the “wrong” thing.

Now, initially, upon reading the title of the article – “Police stealth bikes hit streets” - we thought that this may, in fact, be a great opportunity for these motorbike cops to catch people who were driving dangerously, not watching out for motorbikes or cutting them off etc. We are very well aware of the heightened risks for motorbike riders and the number of, very often, distracted drivers who do not pay attention to these much harder to see, motorists. In essence, we figured these unmarked bikes would be used as “real world” examples to catch motorists who really were doing the “wrong” thing and driving dangerously.

Sadly, as we read through the story, it very quickly became evident that was not what they were being used for at all – instead, they were simply another tool being deployed in the ever expanding regime of blatant revenue raising. You can read the story for yourself here - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/25763341/police-stealth-bikes-hit-streets/

We still held out a little hope when they mentioned catching drivers using their mobile phone whilst driving – something that we agree is definitely dangerous, as it leads to inattention and distracted drivers – two of the truly biggest killers on our roads. They did, however, lose us again when they mentioned people “flouting seat belt laws”. As we have said many times before, if people want to risk their lives by not wearing a seat belt, that should be their choice – it certainly has absolutely no bearing on the safety of other road users though!

The closing line of that article, reminding everyone of the double demerit points – which is completely contrary to the concept of “double jeopardy” or not being punished for the same “crime” twice – is in full swing in many states, as of the end of this week, so please keep that in mind A) as you take to the roads and B) when you are considering whether or not it is worth fighting a fine incurred during that period.

After reading that article, however, we stumbled across another related article, which included detailed video footage of how these unmarked motorbikes were actually being used and, we have to say, we are absolutely appalled. We urge you to watch the video on the top of this page - http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/perths-new-undercover-police-bikes-catchout-careless-drivers/story-fnhocxo3-1227154892109?nk=4fd6d89fa9b3b71ac1caec5976807198

The unmarked motorcycle cops in this video are: doing illegal u-turns, driving up on a median strip, crossing solid lines, weaving through traffic and one cop even drives up the wrong side of the road – all very dangerous manouvers – just to catch a few people playing with their phone whilst stopped at traffic lights!

Seriously, that’s insane! These cops are putting themselves, and other motorists, in danger by these clear and obvious breaches of the law – remember, logic dictates that you cannot break the law in order to enforce the law, unless it is for a “serious” offence – and these guys are doing it all to intercept very minor offences.

Yes, as we said above, talking or texting whilst driving can most assuredly be dangerous and we do not condone it in any way but, we counted six different situations in this video and, in all but one of them – one driver was stuck in a line of cars that weren’t moving - were stopped at traffic lights, posing absolutely no danger or risk to anyone!

Anyway, whether you agree with our take on this or not, the relevant fact remains that these unmarked bikes are now out in force and they are clearly on a revenue raising mission. For now, it appears as though they are only being used in WA but, upon completion of a successful trial period – ie. success means they raised lot of money – you can rest assured that they will be introduced into other States as well.

Once again, you have been warned!

- New revenue raising scams to watch out for

We have received a number of e-mails and Facebook posts about some new revenue raising tactics and an actual scam that has been going around as well that we thought all of our Members and Subscribers should be aware of.

The first and most prevalent issue has been related to the new corporate fines that Civic Compliance is issuing in Victoria. Many people are concerned that companies are now being issued with fines for $2,952 for very minor fines, like 4 or 5 k’s over the limit. Many are outraged by these huge fines – and rightly so – so we wanted to clarify a few points in regards to this issue for everyone.

Firstly, for a very long time, companies have been able to pay fines that are only slightly higher than fines issued to individuals and thus, avoid having any demerit points allocated to their drivers. Many people took advantage of this “loophole” for many years and a number of States have now decided to clamp down on this and that’s why they are now issuing insanely large fines for these very minor offences.

Secondly, it is important to understand that, once the company nominates the driver – as we explain in our e-book – the fine will be withdrawn and the company will not have to pay a cent so don’t get too concerned by the actual amounts detailed on those fines.

Thirdly, once the fine has been issued to the responsible person, they can they use the most appropriate strategy from our e-book to successfully challenge that fine. If you don’t yet have our e-book and, therefore, access to all of this information, then please go to this page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - and sign up now.

Oh, and whilst we’re on the subject of Civic Compliance, we have also received a heap of e-mails asking us about the “Fine avoidance letters” correspondence that Civic Compliance has been sending out to some Members who have been using our 3 step process to challenge their fines.

Although we have addressed this issue before in a previous e-mail update – 25 May 2014, under the section “The impact ASF is now making around the country”, which you can access via our News/Updates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2014-%252d-Current-Updates.html - there have been a number of questions about it so we thought we’d address it again quickly here.

The letters from Civic Compliance claim that people are using template letters that they have downloaded from the internet – which is ironic because they download their reply letters, which are also template letters – from their own intranet themselves!

The letters go on to claim that the National Measurement Act argument doesn’t apply in Victoria, despite the fact that it is a Commonwealth Act and, pursuant to Section 109 of the Commonwealth Constitution, where there is a conflict between a law of the State and a law of the Commonwealth, then the latter prevails.

Not only that but they actually refer to the WA Fisheries case that we include in our e-book (Breedon v Kongras) and admit that case, which has never been challenged or overturned, is in conflict with another Supreme Court case – thus establishing reasonable doubt in and of itself. After all, if two Supreme Court Judges can’t agree on the law then there is no chance that a mere Magistrate or, worse still, a Judicial Registrar, is going to get it right.

At the end of the day, those CCV letters are just the latest in a long line of scare tactics – ignore them and continue with the 3 step process, as it is outlined in our e-book.

And finally, the other interesting issue that has been brought to our attention this past week has been the influx of fake SDRO Infringement Notices. They say that imitation is the best form of flattery and certain individuals have seen what a great scam all these fines are for the government and have decided to replicate it for themselves, by sending out fake notices.

We have heard of people being sent very authentic looking Infringement Notices, which include all the usual threats of additional costs and the like on them. A close inspection of the details will reveal that the specifics don’t match but, sadly, like all the other unjust and unlawful infringement notices that are issued every day, we’re concerned, yet confident, that many people will just blindly pay these too.

Please be sure to check all paperwork – whether that be; fines, court orders, warrants or court paperwork, for mistakes, errors and authenticity before take any action. There are some very unscrupulous people out there – sadly, most of them are in government, law enforcement and the so-called “justice system”!

- Proof of corruption at very high levels

We have reported a number of times this year on the Redflex red light camera scandal that unfolded in the US. City officials were being bribed to have the cameras installed in the first place, there was evidence that the cameras were causing more accidents than they prevented and, eventually, the courts ordered their removal.

Well, now the same thing has happened in respect to speed cameras as well in Maryland. This article - http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/45/4585.asp - details the fact that city officials were, once again, bribed in order to have these cameras installed and they were also proven to be flawed an faulty.

In fact, the opening lines state that, “Up to a third of the speed camera tickets issued by some cameras were found to be questionable or outright erroneous...” We are ever hopeful that the intelligent, informed and educated motorists that are reading this can understand why it is all but certain that we are subjected to a similar error rate, right here in Australia too.

Quotes further down the article, such as these; “the report identified the source of widespread ticketing of innocent motoristsand “Xerox contended that several citations issued erroneously throughout the ATVES program were a result of what the radar industry refers to as 'known radar effects’,” need to be taken on board by Aussie motorists because it is an absolute certainty that same principles apply to the speed cameras being used here in Australia as well.

Of greatest concern though, are statements like this, “Vendors knew about these problems, but they sent the tickets anyway knowing recipients would most likely pay them to avoid the hassle of a court challenge.” The whole point of these regular, lengthy e-mail updates is to convince people that they should challenge every unjust and unlawful fine that they get and not just blindly pay up because of their belief that “it is too hard” or “not worth it” to fight back.

The remainder of the article goes onto cover the completely inadequate “review process” that is conducted in response to the primary challenge that people mount against their fines and, anyone who has ever sent a letter requesting a review will understand, first hand, what a futile waste of time it is here too.

This is a business to these people, pure and simple. If you want to understand how it works here in Australia, then we urge you to take the time to read through this very comprehensive webpage - http://exfacie.com/?q=civic_compliance_victoria_explained - which details who owns Civic Compliance, the Victorian Governments connection to the private corporation that controls the speed camera system, and issues the infringement notices, and who owns them and, ultimately, who truly benefits from the current speed camera system.

We assure you that it is a very enlightening read for those who haven’t seen it before and details why we really all must stop financing the lavish lifestyle of Salteri family by fighting back against every fine we receive!

- Outrageous parking fines

We also received an article from SA regarding Adelaide City Councils “overzealous parking fine policy”, you can read it here - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/business-sa-urges-adelaide-city-council-to-review-overzealous-parking-fines-policy/story-fni6uo1m-1227155299998?sv=29a5b3b28b9d543a3b301f962b83949b&net_sub_uid=97061609

What the council can’t seem to comprehend is that consumer spending is already very low and many businesses are doing it very tough at the moment so, allowing these kinds of outrageous fines to be issued hurts everyone – except, of course, the council coffers.

Like the rest of the money hungry morons running things, they need to look at the long-term ramifications of this short sighted revenue raising action – businesses will shut down, their constituents will suffer and then, hopefully, they will be booted out of office!

The closing lines of the article – which refer to overstaying time limits being a “safety risk” - show just how insane, corrupt and narrow minded these people are. Please, do not encourage this behaviour, use our information to fight back against any unjust and unlawful parking fine you get.

- The truth about unlawful toll fines

We know that many you will be traveling considerably more than usual over the coming Christmas break and, given the way that roads have been designed over the last decade, that will mean that many people are forced to drive on toll roads, where they are more likely than ever, to receive a fine as a result.

One of our Members sent us an excellent, detailed explanation of exactly why all toll fines are unlawful and we encourage you all to spend a few minutes reading through this page - http://corpau.blogspot.com.au/2014/04/toll-charges-and-why-they-are-unlawful.html?m=1 – because it really does a great job of detailing how they came about, as well as the fact that we should not be paying them.

If you have received a toll notice or an infringement notice as a result of not paying a toll notice then please be sure to refer to our General 3 step process, in Chapter 3 of our e-book. And, if you want some more advanced information on that topic – as well as many others – please refer to the various pages that we have on our Advanced Membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/

- Some final thoughts

Whilst we will be here, working away throughout the Christmas/New Year period, continuing our research and answering all your e-mails, we know that many of you will be heading off before we write again so we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous 2015 to follow.

If anyone is feeling generous and would like to acknowledge and support the great work that we do throughout the year, informing and educating the motoring public then please feel free to make a small donation (or a large one J) via the Paypal “Donate” button on the top right hand section of our Home page – it will be very much appreciated.

And, if you haven’t already done so, please be sure to refer to the section below and e-mail us with your postal address and we can send you out some business cards and bumper stickers – completely free of charge – so you can help us spread the word when the inevitable conversation about “ridiculous fines” comes up between family and friends at your Christmas gatherings.

And, again, if you are looking for any memorable, last minute Christmas gifts then please give some serious thought to purchasing an E-Book Membership for friends and/or family this year via this link - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

We have some very exciting plans for next year – including our on-going working relationship with the guys at the Know Your Rights group and the new series of seminars that they are slowly but surely locking in, in various states around Australia. If you haven’t yet seen their website, please be sure to visit it – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au – as it contains a wealth of incredible information.

And, if you are serious about making changes in your life in 2015 - taking action and learning to stand up for your rights - then you could do a lot worse than to spend some time working your way through the amazing podcasts that they have on their Radio Show page, during your impending time-off.

Whatever you choose to do, we want to thank you all for your on-going support of our ASF Vision - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - and we note that we have achieved some fantastic results this year and we look forward to working with more Aussie motorists than ever before,  in 2015, to make some real changes that will genuinely make our roads safer and make driving far more pleasurable for all motorists.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Rather than actual testimonials, this week, we wanted to share with you some more general feedback that we received that we believe is important for everyone to understand.

The first is a quick e-mail from a Member who wanted everyone to know the  lengths that the police are now going to, to raise extra revenue for the government at this busy time of year:

Dear ASF :

Just a heads up to let you know the police are using radar guns while hiding in bus shelters close to Launching Place on the Warburton Highway in addition to using all the speed cameras in vehicles on the side of the road.

I would have never known this had my passenger never had seen the cop as we drove past the shelter .

Regards,

Michael – Vic.

And here is some more great feedback and info, by way of a letter that one of our Members wrote to the QLD Government, in regards to the true purpose of road rules – we need more people taking action like this:

I am sorry to see the Qld Government, via the police department, enforcing the "letter of the law" (ie - zero tolerance attitude), especially in respect of road rules. This is not good practice.

There is a management training organization I am involved with that has a saying, "Purpose is senior to policy". This stems from the fact that we first decide to do something and then put in place rules to guide us towards that goal. An example might be:

Purpose: I want to have a average body weight of 85Kgs

Policy: As a general rule I will not drink cordials that contain sugar

We use policies/rules to guide our decisions and actions towards the goal.

For road rules one might say:

Purpose: To make for the safe and expedient transportation of people and production through establishing a code of practice so that drivers can predict the behaviour of other users of the roads in a given circumstance.

Policy: As a driver approaches an intersection they will indicate through the use or non-use of their blinkers whether they intend to remain on the road they are currently travelling upon or turn into another. They will do this by..................................................

Good policy because it allows all drivers approaching a given intersection to predict the actions of all other drivers doing the same. Further, there is then a set of rules to hierarchy who will do what first and so on.

But remember, rules are guidelines and there solely to guide one's actions toward the goal. When a policy / rule gets in the way of the goal, one discards the policy / rule. For example, sitting at a red light at 2:00AM when you can see clearly down all the intersecting roads for 100m is contrary to the purpose of: To make for the safe and expedient transportation.

Obeying this rule in the above circumstance:

  1. Doesn't allow for the fundamental principle that people can think and make good decisions without being constantly controlled
  1. Doesn't recognize that in this circumstance to break the rule will not threaten the purpose.

The purpose of an activity is everything, the rules are secondary and only there to help achieve the purpose.

This is actually what motorists complain about when they complain of ridiculous police practices and the fact that the government is not enforcing these rules for their purpose but solely because they exist, to have compliant citizens and to raise revenue. This sort of policing doesn't allow for the motorist to think for themselves and is indicative of a low-toned individual/society/government.

Policing of this type also sets up the police in an "US & THEM" scenario with the public and thereby diminishes their relationship with the very people they are supposed to be serving. It is bad policy.

It is about time the government and police rekindled the viewpoint of the purpose of the law and not the "letter".

Sincerely

Jay

10 December, 2014
Get ready for the latest, escalated revenue raising tactics!

- Intro

Well, December is upon us and the ultimate “Revenue Raising” scam is about to begin in earnest. The coming Christmas period is notorious for being a time when more unjust and unlawful fines are issued than any other equivalent time frame. So, be warned and prepared – if you haven’t yet got a copy of our licence saving e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – we recommend that you do so right away. Remember, the best time to have our information and strategies at your fingertips is before you actually receive a fine.

And, speaking of Christmas, rather than getting your friends or family some short-lived gift that they will quickly forget, why not consider buying an E-book Membership for them – it is a present that they will value and remember for many years to come and will be of use to them for literally the rest of their lives. If you order this week, we can still get a professionally printed and bound hard copy – along with our Resources CD - out to them in plenty of time for Christmas.

Anyway, if you need any further convincing as to why every motorist in Australia should have our e-book, then please read on ....

- And so it begins

We haven’t even officially started the “silly season” yet but the BS government propaganda has already started. As always, the cops in Victoria have waged war on their motorists a little earlier and little more harshly than other States – they were at it a month ago!

This story, from the Herald Sun in Melbourne - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/more-than-40000-crimes-detected-in-first-23-days-of-road-safety-campaign-operation-raid/story-fni0fee2-1227148579439 - should be a loud and clear warning of the revenue raising tactics that are coming your way very shortly – if they haven’t been implemented already.

The first point to note from this article is the paragraph that clearly distinguishes between “traffic” offences and “criminal” offences. They state that “More than 36,000 traffic and nearly 4,900 criminal offences were detected during Operation RAID”. Now, would someone like to explain to us why, when this article clearly, and correctly, separates traffic offences from true criminal offences, when you go to court to defend against a traffic offence, they claim that it is a criminal offence and it is supposedly heard in a criminal court!

Their sensationalised headline – “More than 40,000 crimes detected ….” is also, obviously, false and misleading – but hey, that’s exactly what propaganda is!

Sadly, it gets worse though. They crap on about “road safety” and then list figures that have absolutely nothing to do with it. Yes, drug and drunk drivers are, most assuredly, dangerous and should be removed from our roads but, can someone please explain to us how people not wearing their own seatbelt is a road safety issue for other drivers. Or, how is someone failing to pay an administrative fee to a private corporation – ie. registration renewal – a road safety issue to others? The problem is that people buy into this rubbish and actually support these campaigns when it is all based on lies, deception and misleading information.

Some other interesting points to note are as follows: The Assistant Commissioner laments that 240 people have been killed on our roads – which, we agree, truly is a tragedy – but goes onto express his surprise that people are “continuing to take deadly risks”. Now, firstly, this clearly shows that the current lies that they tell people, like “speed cameras are an effective deterrent and cause people to slow down” are complete crap and, furthermore, given that “only” 240 people were killed, yet 40,000 people were detected in just one month, it is as plain as day that the majority of things they claim are “dangerous” are clearly not at all.

Please, are we the only people that are able to connect these dots? Is this not as obvious as the nose on your face to all other Aussie motorists? If 40,000 people are committing all these “serious road safety offences” – and that’s just in one month - yet “only” 240 people have died, then either we truly are the luckiest country in the world or, these “offences” really don’t have anything to do with “road safety” at all.

Please, we urge you, take some time out during your Christmas break – once all the main rush is over – and write to the reporter and/or write to the Assistant Commissioner and ask them to correlate these two clear and obvious facts for you. And, in the meantime, please do pay attention on our roads and do not allow yourself to become distracted because those two factors truly are the biggest killers on our roads.

And, finally, if you do get caught up in one of these “operations” and you receive one of their “road safety” justified fines, be sure to use our e-book to challenge it.

- The latest infra-red speed cameras are a great revenue earner

One of our Members sent us an article from the Adelaide Advertiser regarding the 5 new mobile speed cameras that have just been fitted with infra-red flashes to catch speeding motorists at night. You can read the full story here - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/sa-police-fit-five-mobile-speed-cameras-with-infra-red-flashes-to-better-detect-speeding-motorists-at-night/story-fni6uo1m-1227138928389

One of the first paragraphs talks about “the success of the new flash units would be monitored and could pave the way for all cameras to be installed with infra-red technology.” So, how many people reading this believe that the word “success” refers to how many lives are somehow magically going to be saved by these new flashes and who thinks that “success” means how much money they make from them and whether it is financially viable for them to pay to fit this technology to all cameras in coming years so they can now start fining people both day and night?

Following on from the section above, they claim that “the purpose of these cameras is to slow people down” yet, the facts prove – more and more fines being issued every year – that is not what actually happens! They go onto say that “The new $57,00 flashes would ‘probably’ raise more revenue for police” – well, there’s the understatement of the year – “

but denied cash flow was a motivation for the purchase” – well, technically, he’s probably correct, it wasn’t “a” motivation it was “the” motivation – it is always about the money!!! The rubbish that they print in the next two paragraphs isn’t even worth repeating.

Seriously, just stop and think for a moment about the infinite, limitless number of ways that exist to train or teach people something - there is literally no limit to the number of creative ways you could come up with yet, each and every time, they insist on hitting us with a financial penalty to punish us when we’re not even doing anything “wrong” or dangerous, in most cases. It’s not about “turning a blind eye” to our actions, it’s about finding new and creative ways to teach and train people to become better drivers - to focus and pay attention. The problem is that every time someone pays that financial penalty, they are reinforcing that that is the best way to train us, even though, in reality, the facts and statistics prove that is not the case. Remember, this has nothing to do with “road safety” it is all about control, by way of extorting money from us.

They’re own comments about people not denying speeding, is further proof of what we have been saying along – exceeding some arbitrarily, artificially reduced posted “speed limit” is not dangerous, in most cases, and is only “a” factor in about 5% of accidents. Yet, they keep harping on about it because they can make money from it.

And, despite their assertions that “there are ‘no plans at this stage’ to buy more infra-red flashes” you can bet your bottom dollar that is exactly what they will do because it has been proven to work – ie. raise more money – in Victoria.

As we mentioned in our first section, Victoria is the test bed for almost all new revenue raising scams and, this concept is no different. As this article details - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/speed-cameras-catching-more-melbourne-motorists-after-dark/story-fni0fee2-1227136260091 - infra-red flashes have been used in Victoria for a number of years now and have nabbed 210,000 drivers already!

Do you really think that they won’t increase the number of infra-red scameras in SA and introduce them into other States as well, given that every speed camera in Victoria is now fitted with an infra-red flash???

We just don’t know how to make it any clearer, things are going to progressively get worse and worse if we don’t all starting fighting back against this madness and injustice now! We have clearly detailed to you, in black and white, what is happening right now and what the near future holds – you have been warned. We have also explained how much worse it is going to get long-term if people continue with this disgusting, apathetic attitude of “it’s too hard to fight back” or “it costs too much to fight back”.

We have spent well over 10 years researching this area and, after 8 years, we now have definitively proven, tried and tested strategies for fighting back against these ridiculous and ineffective, unjust and unlawful fines. We have a ton of free information on our website, we provide these regular e-mail updates - completely free of charge - and we have an extremely inexpensive e-book available – that costs about half the cost of a single fine – and it details, step-by-step, exactly what you need to do to successfully challenge your fines.

We can provide all of this for you but we can’t do it for you – you do actually need to put in a little bit of effort yourselves. You need to ask yourselves what the consequences of you not taking action are though because, we assure you, they are far worse than a little bit of time to write a few letters or even a single day off work to go to court. Please, if you haven’t already done so, go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and grab a copy of our e-book now. It is, quite simply, the best motoring investment you will ever make and, we believe, an essential form of “insurance” that every motorist should have.

- Further proof that it’s all about the money

We received a number of other articles this week that clearly show that all of these tactics really are just about raising revenue and have almost nothing to do with “road safety”.

This article really shocked us - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/helmet-hassles-bikers-accuse-police-of-giving-out-petty-visor-fines/story-fni0fit3-1227147660982?nk=4fd6d89fa9b3b71ac1caec5976807198 - because we have heard of some pretty crazy fines being issued over the years but, to fine someone for fitting a tinted visor that helps them cut out glare from the sun – our experience has been that actually being able to see where you’re going, especially on a motorbike, tends to make you considerably safer – is just absurd.

The fact that the laws on this subject are confusing, or worse still, “incoherent”, should be a sure sign for a police officer not to issue a fine. What happened to exercising some discretion and “common sense” before issuing a fine? Oh, that’s right, the police now have “quotas” that they are expected to fulfill so all of that goes out the window! If anyone has received one of these fines, please use the General 3 step process in chapter 3 of our e-book and take it from there.

We received another interesting article out of the US which shows how new car insurance requirements have inadvertently created a new way to defeat speeding fines. Now, although the same insurance requirements don’t apply here, you can use the same principles and strategies, and the article raises a number of other very interesting points. Please click this link - http://thefreethoughtproject.com/car-insurance-inadvertently-revlolutionary-fight-speeding-tickets/ - to read it.

First up, we couldn’t believe that they actually printed this incredibly factual and insightful line – Police and judges are completely dependent upon ‘catching’ people speeding. They need you to speed in order to make their salaries. This gives them a positive incentive to keep this revenue stream going which can lead to less than ethical means to collecting revenue.” – this applies equally here in Australia as well.

The article goes on to state that officers regularly use speed detection devices that they know are inaccurate and it also refers to a UK program that successfully proved how often laser and radar guns provide false and inaccurate readings.

Even a retired Police Sergeant admits that it’s all about revenue raising – again, all of this applies equally, right here in Australia, just as it does in the US – we even have our own ex police officer stating the very same things. You can read his full statement on the top of the Home page of our Advanced Membership website - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/memberspage.php

So, how are they beating their fines now in the US? By fitting tracking devices to their vehicles that can be used as evidence in court, to counter the claim that they were speeding. Now, many people already have similar systems in their cars here anyway, others have successfully used GPS devices that log data and a number of similar ideas as well.

The key point to remember is that the officer’s evidence is what is known as “prima facie” evidence – on the face of it. However, that goes out the window the moment you provide any evidence to the contrary. Sure, if you have some kind of actual device that has some scientific data on it, that can be of great benefit to you but, just your own sworn testimony is enough to successfully challenge the officer’s evidence and, is enough to establish reasonable doubt, which is all you are required to do to have any charge against you dismissed.

As always, this is all explained in much greater detail in our e-book so, if you haven’t quite got your head around this concept or explanation, please read through the latter chapters of our e-book, which explain exactly what to say and do in court, if a fine even progresses that far.

Once again, the point is to do something to fight back. As they say, there are many ways to skin a cat and there are also many ways to successfully challenge an unjust and unlawful fine but you need to take action.

- Finally, some good news

And, speaking of “taking action”, as we mentioned in our last e-mail update, we like to try and include at least one positive story in amongst all the negative ones that we are usually forced to report on and, this week, we received a fantastic article from QLD which shows that motorists are getting fed up with paying ridiculous, unjust and unlawful private toll fines and are banding together and collectively stopping paying.

You can read the full article here - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/hundreds-of-motorists-daily-are-ignorning-demands-to-pay-tolls-leaving-debt-collectors-chasing-millions-of-dollars/story-e6freoof-1226557780486?nk=4fd6d89fa9b3b71ac1caec5976807198 - and, once again, there are some really great points to note.

Firstly, there is the opening line which states that “Hundreds of motorists every day are ignoring demands to pay tolls...” which is absolute music to our ears. As we have said far more times than we can possibly count, when one or two people fight back, it is only really ever them, personally, that will benefit but, when everyone fights back together and refuses to pay these ridiculous fines and tolls, that’s when we will really start making an impact and, the fact that this story ran at all, is testament to that fact.

They go onto say that “one in six unpaid fines .... relate to toll infringements” and that “the problem is exploding” – ah, we have tears of joy streaming down our face! This is what we want to read more and more of in the media, this is what we want people to start focussing on and, hopefully, this kind of collective resistance will spread very quickly to all motorists, in all States, in respect of all types of unjust and unlawful fines!

To read that the Clem7 tunnel operators have gone into receivership is the greatest gift that you, our Members and Subscribers can give us – knowing that you are taking on board all of the information that we put out and are acting on it and achieving exceptional results.

Well done, QLD motorists!

Now all we need to do is put all of these other private corporations – police services, so-called “government” enforcement agencies and the like – into receivership as well by not paying them either. Then, we will finally be able to implement the many, truly life-saving, road safety initiatives that we have had on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - for many years now.

The fact that they are now employing private debt collection firms shows that A) they are absolutely desperate and B) that these are all private, civil debts and not the “criminal offences” that they make them out to be and, as these drivers have no contract what-so-ever with these corporations, there is simply nothing they can do.

Please, if anyone is ever pursued by one of these debt collectors, ask them for a copy of the contract bearing your wet ink signature and, if they can’t produce that – which they obviously can’t – then you have no case to answer to. And, that can be done in addition to the 3 step process that is detailed in chapter 3 of our e-book.

- Some advanced information

For those of you are reading this who are a little more advanced – or for those who want to expand their knowledge a little – we recommend reading over the following article - http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2014/nov/01/magna-carta-800-celebrates-anniversary

It discusses the importance of the Magna Carta and how that is still intrinsically embedded into all our laws today and the courts and the government – and their agents – must comply with it. Once you get past the first bit about the plans for next year’s celebration, you can scroll down to the really powerful parts, which is the application of the Magna Carta, right here in Australia, still today.

There is section towards the bottom entitled, “Magna Carta? So what was that all about?” and that explains very briefly how it came about and why it is still so important today. Specifically, it notes that the Magna Carta is “the foundation for the individual freedoms we enjoy today” and the next section quotes the basis of what we refer to all the time – Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act - which, along with our Commonwealth Constitution, is part of what ensures that those principles still apply, right here in Australia, to date.

And please, if you enjoy some of this more advanced type of information, be sure to join our Advanced Memberships website, which you can do by following these steps - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Advanced-Membership-%252d-new-Members-area.html – and please also check out our friends at the Know Your Rights Group as well – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

As always, we have received a number of new Testimonials again this week as well as some general “feedback” that we wanted to share with you too.

Our first e-mail is success story from a Member who successfully used our information to defeat a fine in court:

Hi Team.

I appreciate your persistence, 'against the odds'!

I felt I betrayed you people and your effort, BUT, back on Aug 7/2014:

My case was dismissed, basis "section  72".

A prior arrangement with the Prosecutor.

All because I followed your 3-step process.

If I had not, it would not have reached the Court at Dromana! ('Home ground'; but I had never been there previously.), leading to the dismissal.

I won't bore you with the details. And, I didn't have a perfect record; I have had a number of speeding fines "less than 10Kph over the limit". They had not listed them.

I was in court for less than 3 minutes.

Many thanks.

Keith – Vic.

And here is a short and sweet one from a Member who has won her first case using our information.

Dear Aussie Speeding Fines

I’ve been fighting a fine since February {also with your help] and I received a letter today saying that the matter has been withdrawn.

All I want to say to guys is thank you, thank you so much.

I finally won my first one.

Sandy

And then we received this e-mail which is some very positive feedback, rather than a testimonial, as such. It is always great to hear from people that acknowledge and appreciate the incredible amount of time, effort and energy that we put into this website so, if others feel the same way, please let us know because it is e-mails like this that keep us going – especially when everyone else is on a break or holiday and we are still slaving away.

Hi Guys

Just a word of thanks for the energy and effort you guys consistently put into this fight for a "fair go"

Its always encouraging to get your updates on what is happening on the frontline of your initiatives ....  and yes whatever happened to the land of "a fair go" ???

I constantly hear from friends and family returning from overseas commenting on how much Australia has changed in this arena and how "Nanny State" Australia is becoming  - compared to countries they have visited.

This constant corrosion of our civil liberties in the name of "safety" is indeed a farce and worthy of deep concern. Germany only became Nazi Germany because good people did nothing.

So thank you again for being a positive "voice in the wilderness" of the political spin and expectation that would sell us out to lemming mentality.

Just want to applaud the great work you are doing and wish you every success for the journey ahead.

May more Aussies wake up to what is happening and help put the brakes on this madness and rally round the initiatives and possibilities for positive change.

Warm Regards

Colin

And, finally, here’s some more really positive feedback from someone else who has read through our website:

Stay safe out there,


24 November, 2014
We have lots to share with you since our last e-mail update a month ago!

- Intro

It's been a crazy month since we last wrote to you and a number of people have e-mailed us asking us if we were still around or not because they hadn’t heard from us. Well, rest assured, we are definitely still here and, in fact, we’re now bigger and better than ever!

We have been working away furiously in the background answering everyone’s e-mails, continuing our on-going research and working very closely with the guys at the Know Your Rights Group – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au We joined them for their first ever seminar last weekend and it was a huge success. We understand that they have just released dates for their Brisbane and Sydney seminars early next year so be sure to check out their Seminar page – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar - for further details on those incredible full day events.

We have also been working on a lot of our backend systems, adding more information to our website and upgrading servers to ensure that we continue to provide outstanding service to the almost 23,000 Members and Subscribers that we now have on our database. On that point, if we have not answered an e-mail that you sent us in the last 3 – 4 weeks, that was due to a an e-mail server hiccup, so please send it again to us now and we will get to it ASAP.

 Anyway, in addition to all of that, there have obviously been a heap of interesting media articles, as well as a number of exciting new testimonials that have crossed our desk that we want to share with you so, let’s get straight into it….

- New speed cameras claiming millions more in fines than estimated

We have been warning people for a few months now about the dramatic increase in revenue raising strategies and we keep trying to get the message through to people that if they don’t start fighting back seriously now then it will soon be “too late”.

Clearly, people haven’t got the message yet so here’s another story of rampant revenue raising with no appreciable “road safety” benefits what-so-ever. This story comes from Adelaide and shows that the new speed cameras that have recently been introduced there are raking in even more money than they originally predicted - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/new-south-eastern-freeway-speed-cameras-claiming-millions-more-in-fines-than-estimated/story-fni6uo1m-1227132421099?nk=4fd6d89fa9b3b71ac1caec5976807198 (Please note that they seem to have a problem with their video as it doesn’t match the actual story we are referring to.)

Now, as we explain every time anyone mentions an amount of money that has been “budgeted” from speeding fines; how can they “budget” for something that they say is effective at slowing people down??? If speed cameras really do work the way they claim they do - and cause people to slow down - then revenue from them should consistently reduce down to an amount of zero – it certainly shouldn’t be increasing constantly like it currently is!

The fact that these particular cameras are raking in three times more than they “budgeted” for, shows that there is a huge problem for Adelaide motorists – the SA government, of course, is rubbing its filthy little hands with glee.

So, as always, the question comes back to you – what are you going to do to put a stop to this madness?

Remember, every time someone pays a fine, they send a message to the government that what they are doing is okay and to keep doing more of it – is that really the message you want to be sending them??? If not, then do something about it!

- Ridiculous new tactics being employed in NSW

So, as you can see from the story above, there are now more fines being issued than ever before and, thankfully, many people are starting to learn not to pay them. What we need though is more people actually challenging their fines rather than just ignoring them – bury these agencies in paperwork, fill up the courts and send these agencies a message that these standover tactics will simply not be tolerated by Aussie motorists any longer.

Until that happens though, these agencies will continue to use bullying tactics to try and force you to “pay up” – such as the information that the SDRO has put out on their website which you can read here – http://www.sdro.nsw.gov.au/fines/ea/civil.php

It is important to keep in mind that if you challenge a fine in court they will claim that the matter is a criminal offence and it will be heard in a criminal court, along with other actual real crimes. As we explain in our e-book, you will often be standing alongside people in a court who have robbed someone, bashed someone or even far worse, when you go to simply challenge a speeding fines, or similar – they are dealt with under “criminal jurisdiction”.

So, keeping that in mind, take careful note of the title of web page above – Civil Sanctions. How exactly do they get away with imposing civil sanctions for a criminal offence – it’s an absolute joke! Again, every one of you reading this needs to understand that they get away with this because you let them, by your actions and, more importantly, your inaction.

So, as you can see, they can now seize your property, garnish your wages and even force the bank to hand over your hard earned money from your bank account – all without a valid Court Order and completely contrary to Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act. Remember, this Act - which applies in every State of Australia - clearly dictates that, “all fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void.”

If you don’t know how to use this extremely important Act to defend against these kind of actions then please get a copy of our e-book straight away - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and go straight to Chapter 3, where this is all explained in great detail with simple to follow, step-by-step instructions.

How much worse do things need to get before you will take action and fight back?

As we said in the previous section, every time you pay these criminals – because that’s what people who operate outside of the law without valid court orders are – you reinforce their behaviour. However, when you fight back and challenge these fines before they escalate to this point, then all of this madness disappears – the power to make true change really is in your hands!

- Here’s what NOT to do

Okay, so grabbing a copy of our e-book and using the information, techniques and strategies that we detail in it, is clearly the best way to fight back against this injustice. But, here’s a few things that you should not do.

Firstly, don’t buy into this type of BS propaganda - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa/a/25308385/stop-whingeing-and-start-driving-better/  

It is absolutely appalling that WA Police Assistant Commissioner would use his “position of power” to spread such baseless propaganda. This line is the most offensive of all: “Mr Anticich said he often "hears the whingers" who complained about receiving infringements and did not understand it was the dangerous driving for which road users had been caught that had led to so many deaths on the roads.”

Mr Anticich has falsely, and deliberately, tried to link low level speeding with “dangerous driving”. So, let’s set Mr Aticich, and the record, straight. The people who are “whinging” about their fines are the hundreds of thousands of people who are booked each year for exceeding artificially reduced speed limits by a minute amount and have never had an accident in their lives. If the police concentrated on only booking motorists for actual dangerous driving – rather than what they blatantly lie about and “call” dangerous driving (low level speeding offences) - then our roads truly would be a lot safer.

Please be sure to read over our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - to find out further details about what we are ultimately trying to achieve and to read about some of the ideas that we would like to see implemented, which will truly make our roads safer for everyone.

Once again, this blanket reliance on speed cameras is simply not working, as is proven by the fact that this year’s road toll is almost certainly going to be higher than last year’s, yet again. Remember, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again but expecting a different result!

And, here’s something else not to do – do not try and nominate other drivers for the purposes of saving or protecting demerit points as these people have done - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/25402532/police-nab-parents-in-points-blitz/ Not only will you likely be caught and end up in far worse trouble than you were originally facing but, as we have explained in the sections above, it doesn’t get to the root cause of the issue, which is the government unjustly and unlawfully issuing fines and the requirement for us to actually challenge them on those facts.

With all of the information in our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – which has been proven to work over the past 7 and a half years, there is simply no reason to ever just blindly “pay up” rather than challenging every fine you get in the future.

Armed with our information, it is not difficult – yes, it requires a bit of effort but not really that much. It doesn’t cost you anything to challenge your fines – once you’ve paid the one-off E-Book Membership fee, you can use our information completely free for life. And, even if you challenge and lose, it still doesn’t really cost you anymore and you have clogged up the system, cost them time and money and kept your hard earned money in your pocket for much longer than you otherwise would have.

So, what are you waiting for?

- Problems with hand held speed detection devices

So, the section above details some things that you should not be doing, so what about what you should be doing. Well, the most important thing you need to do is to educate yourself about the facts, about your rights and about your options.

The best place to start is obviously with our e-book and then, there are a lot of other places you can search on-line, such as our Advanced Membership website - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ - which contains a lot of information over and above what is detailed in our e-book and includes things like copies of all speed detection device manuals that are currently used in Australia today.

Speaking of speed detection devices, we come across a lot of stories about speed cameras – because they are so prevalent – but we often forget that there are still a lot of police out there using hand held devices. Not only are these devices subject to a lot more interference and a lot more wear and tear, they have the additional requirement of a tracking history which needs to be proven but very rarely is.

On top of that, there are some fundamental, inherent problems that cause these devices to be inaccurate far more often than they are accurate. We recommend that you have a read over this page – https://www.radars.com.au/police-radar-errors.php -for further details.

You will very quickly learn that there are simply so many issues with the speed detection devices that are being used nowadays that it is amazing that they ever convict anyone in court anymore – the problem is, of course, that far too many people are still jut blindly paying their fines rather than taking them to court, where they have the best chance of defeating them.

- A heartwarming story for everyone

In the midst of all the madness, negativity and control that is detailed in the majority of our news stories, we always like to try and include at least one or two “feel good” or positive stories as well. This week, we have a fantastic one that is guaranteed to bring a smile to everyone reading it.

This story comes out of Sydney - http://www.betootaadvocate.com/uncategorized/city-ranger-accidentally-gives-himself-parking-ticket-takes-matter-to-court/ - and details the absolute stupidity of a council ranger that gave a parking ticket to himself – yes, you did read that correctly!

The comments both within the article and at the end of it make it clear that people feel the same way about this moron as we do – karma always comes back around! It is good to see that he is challenging his fine though – we wonder whether he will walk into court armed with our ASF e-book and explain to the Magistrate that he doesn’t swear an oath to anyone and the corporate council that he works for is not recognised under the Commonwealth Constitution so his ticket is null and void anyway!

 If anyone is concerned about challenging any unjust speeding fines or parking fines, please be aware that this is the level of intelligence that you will have to deal with in court – you have absolutely nothing to worry about!

- Huge win in court over speeding fine

And, finally, this week, we wanted to share with you a fantastic story that one of our Members sent through about a significant victory in court over a speeding fine – just to show you how many arguments are available to you to use on each and every occasion that you challenge an unjust and unlawful fine.

We urge you to spend a few minutes to read over this web page to find out more - http://www.truthology.org.au/index.php/posts/333-huge-win-in-court-over-speeding-infringement - and existing Members will soon see that the majority of the arguments that were raised are explained in detail in our e-book.

Yes, in this particular instance, it was a very switched on lawyer that raised those arguments but, as you will see from the following section, you do not need to be a lawyer at all and, once you have read our e-book, you will know more about the area of traffic fines than most lawyers will ever know. You can, and should,  raise all of these arguments yourself because the freedom, power and confidence that comes from understanding your rights and standing up for them in court is something that we simply cannot explain to people – you really have to experience it for yourself.

Please be sure to read the section below to find out how others have successfully used our information to defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

As always, we have received a number of new Testimonials again this week and we know this e-mail is getting a bit long again so we will just include a couple for you.

The first is from a Member who challenged a parking fine and has another one on the go:

Dear Aussie Speeding Fines,

FYI, please see the attached response from SDRO – I beat them!

I have another fine on the go for parking in a loading zone with my business van, form Sydney Council and, of course, I will fight this one also.

Thanks,

Richard – NSW

And our second is just general feedback rather than relating to a specific fine but we certainly love to get feedback from people that appreciate the enormous amount of time, effort and energy that we put into keeping this website going:

Hi Aussie Speeding Fines,
 
Just a quick note of congratulations. I, for one, appreciate your hard work, commitment and sense of justice.
 
I recognise the work that you do is time consuming and, I bet at times, frustrating.
 
I certainly appreciate your updates. I wish you every success in your endeavours as you enlighten we motorists to the rabid dishonesty peddled by government to justify the ratchetting down of speed limits on a whim and the cynical deployment of revenue raising speed cameras.
 
All power to you I say.
 
Cheers,

Wayne.

Stay safe out there,


12 October, 2014
If you don't act now it will be too late - you have been warned!

- Intro

It's been a very busy couple of weeks since we last wrote to you and we would like to begin by thanking you for taking notice of our recent request and reading our FAQ page first, before sending us your questions via e-mail. This has really helped to reduce our workload, which, in turn, has meant that we have been able to work on other important projects such as our upcoming seminar event with the Know Your Rights group.

Over the past 7 and a half years, we have had numerous requests from Members and Subscribers regarding us conducting another seminar. We have also had a number of requests for additional information, above and beyond what we cover in our e-book on just traffic fines. Accordingly, we're sure that many of you will be pleased to hear about our segment at the upcoming Know Your Rights seminar, being held in Melbourne on the 15th of November.

You can find out more details about the topics that will be covered during the full day event and book your seat via this page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/ If you are unable to attend the Melbourne seminar, please be sure to register your interest in a similar life-changing seminar being held in your State via the Registration of Interest form on the bottom right hand side of the page.

We would urge you all to please pass the details of this seminar onto anyone who is interested in finding out more about successfully challenging unjust and unlawful traffic fines, as well as learning about their rights on a larger scale as well. There is a seminar flyer at the bottom of that page that you can download and send off via e-mail or upload to Facebook as well, to help spread the word.

In the meantime though, there are a number of new issues facing Aussie motorists and things are really starting to get serious now. If people don't start collectively start taking action and fighting back, it will simply be "too late". So, we would urge you all to read through the following articles to understand why you must fight back now!

- Number plate scanners now being used in WA

We have been warning people for a few months now about the dramatic increase in revenue raising strategies and powers being given to various agencies around the country. And, whilst number plate scanners have been used in other States for quite some time now, WA motorists are now in for a rude awakening as they return to their vehicles to find them clamped because of failure to pay illegal, void and unjust fines.

You can read about the latest "war on fines" in WA here - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/25224115/camera-to-spy-on-fine-evaders/  Please keep in mind that these new powers do absolutely nothing to stop drivers who are driving dangerously at a particular point in time and, therefore, have absolutely zero impact on road safety. Instead, they are there to collect revenue for the government as a result of unlawful and unjust fines that have, in most cases, never been proven and thus, according to law, are illegal and void.

Of greatest concern to us is the deceptive and misleading statements that are being made by the Attorney-General, such as; "Our overall aim is to reclaim millions of dollars from this small group of fine dodgers who repeatedly flout the law, yet expect hardworking WA taxpayers to foot the bill." How exactly are "hard working WA taxpayers" footing any bill? And, what bill specifically are they footing?

Is he suggesting that taxpayers are paying people's fines for them? No, of course not. So what on earth is he crapping on about? This is a war on motorists and the Attorney-General is deliberately trying to pit motorist against motorist and create general and civil unrest. This should be seen as an act of war and dealt with accordingly!

Now, we know we've said it a million times but we will continue saying it until the message gets through - Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act clearly states that "All fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void". So, if a fine hasn't gone before a court of competent jurisdiction, where your case has actually been heard and you have been convicted of a crime, then the fine is illegal and void and they have no lawful right to clamp your car or suspend your driver's licence.

But, as you can see, that doesn't stop them. What will stop them is if; A) people challenge their fines as soon as they get them, B) make applications for revocation/annulment of any old, outstanding fines that they received before they got our e-book and, C) if the clamps are cut off and never returned to them because they don't have any wording such as, "These clamps remain the property of the Sheriff's office at all times" and, because once they are fitted to your vehicle, they become a chattel to your vehicle and thus, your property.

So, fight back now and encourage others to do the same or face the fact that the chances of you returning from work one day or from your weekly shopping, to find your car has been clamped and immobilised, is higher then ever before.

Again, you have been warned!

- Further proof that it's all about the money

And, motorists in QLD are also feeling the pain of new legislation brought in by the government, purely to raise revenue from unjust and unlawful fines. This article - http://www.qt.com.au/news/fare-evaders-owe-20-million/2404367/ - details how debt collectors have now been employed to chase up fines on behalf of the government.

This is a really important article and we would urge each and every one of you to read it, no matter what State you are in, because it reveals some very important information that will be of benefit to you all.

Firstly, there is no requirement for any government to use debt collectors because they already have their own army of debt collectors - they are called Sheriffs and, as the section above details, they are being given new powers all the time to collect on these so-called "debts". What this categorically proves, however, is that these governments are now 100% corporatised and are operating as “de facto” governments, completely beyond their power to do so. Private companies and corporations use debt collectors, not true governments – this shows that our governments are now just corporations working against us.

Secondly, if they are claiming a debt against you - which is what this article suggests - then they need to verify and validate the debt itself. Accordingly, as private debt collectors are now being used, you can send them a formal Debt Disclosure Statement and they are required, by law, to answer it before pursuing the matter any further. If they fail to do so, then you can report them to the Financial Ombudsman Service.

This actually applies to any private debt and, if anyone is facing this kind of situation, we would urge them to contact our new friends at www.banksecretsrevealed.com and say that you got their details from us and ask them to help you with writing off any outstanding private debts you may have. Please note that they can only help with private debts – such as to a bank - not outstanding fines - except in the scenario detailed above.

Thirdly, given the wording of section 115 of the Commonwealth Constitution and sections 9, 11, 16 & 22 of the Currency Act 1965, how exactly do these private governments and their private debt collectors expect you to "pay the debt". Now, this may be a little complicated for some to get their head around but, as the Know Your Rights guys have explained on their weekly radio broadcasts a number of times - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/ - every dollar in our wallets has an automatic debt associated with it and most people are aware of the fact that you cannot pay a debt with another debt - for example, you can't pay a credit card with another credit card - so you cannot lawfully discharge these debts either.

Accordingly, the following statement is blatantly and factually incorrect - "These reforms will reduce the outstanding debt and will also send a clear message to the community that enough is enough when it comes to debtors who have the financial capacity to pay their fines but choose not to," the spokeswoman said. The debt cannot be reduced under the current economic climate – given the complete lack of lawful and/or valuable consideration - and, the reality is that no-one has the financial capacity to “pay” the debts.

You will, of course, note that despite this lengthy article, there is not a single mention of "road safety" or "reducing the road toll" because this insidious practice is all plain and simply about raising revenue.

- How much clearer does it need to be before you'll take action?

One of our Members sent us the following article from the ACT - http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/more-than-200-drivers-fined-in-act-during-long-weekend-20141008-10rvw9.html - and we really don't know how to make it any clearer than it is in this story.

The opening line boasts that; "There were no serious or fatal crashes in the first week of the school holidays despite a boost in traffic across ACT roads." However, the very next line details the fact that 214 fines and 98 cautions were handed out during that same period. Now, they claim that they were targeting dangerous drivers so, they either miraculously found every single one and stopped them in their track or, the things that they were targeting - like speed - actually have little or no impact on the road toll at all, as is confirmed by these figures.

And, to really hammer the point home, the closing line states that; "The ACT road toll for 2014 sits at nine, two more than last year's total." So, despite more fines being issued in the ACT than ever before, the road toll has, once again, increased!

Is there anyone out there that still doesn't get the message loud and clear - this is all about revenue raising!!!

It seems as though the only people that truly understand what is going on are our "mates across the ditch" in New Zealand. This excellent article - http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1410/S00067/speeding-campaigns-damage-confidence-in-police.htm - spells it out beautifully and explains why the current system of revenue raising cannot possibly ever lead to a reduction in the road toll.

This paragraph - “The police believe that if they can make ordinary drivers scared to speed anywhere, anytime, the road toll will drop. This is, sadly, nonsense, because the drivers who cause most speed-related accidents tend to ignore both road safety messages and speeding tickets. They are almost all either blotto, or motorcyclists or young working-class males who live on the edge of the law. The government’s own studies show this.” - relates to Australia just as it does to New Zealand and perfectly mirrors false and misleading propaganda that we are bombarded with here every day, as well as the same, ineffective results.

The remainder of the article is spot on and statements such as this - "In fact, most accidents don't involve illegal speeds at all; about 80% of fatalities occur at speeds below the legal limit.” - and this - "In Australia's Northern Territory, the police no longer enforce speed limits at all on one highway. Instead, they target reckless driving. During the years when the police blindly enforced speed limits, as they do in New Zealand, the Northern Territory road toll actually increased." - simply cannot be ignored.

The reason they keep getting away with this rubbish is because we let them! Every time you blindly hand over your hard earned cash and pay a fine rather than challenging it, you are sending them a message that they can keep getting away with it. By getting everyone to challenge every fine they receive, it sends a loud and clear message that Aussie motorists will simply not put up with this crap anymore.

The choice is yours and the power to make changes is squarely in your hands and that of your friends, family and fellow motorists – so please exercise it.

- More misleading propaganda

At least our next story seems to have a slightly positive spin on it - https://au.news.yahoo.com/nsw/video/watch/25156474/speed-camera-switch-off/ - the fact that 10 speed cameras are being removed appears, on the surface of it, to be great news. However, sadly, the reality of the situation - that can be seen if one looks between the lines - is simply more lies and deception.

The story opens with the line, “There’s proof this evening that not all speed cameras save lives” – that would have to be one of the understatements of the year. As we have explained many times, the way in which a speed camera operates – taking a photo and sending you a fine in the mail 3 to 4 weeks after the fact – is clear and obvious proof that a speed camera can never possibly “save someone’s life”.

The reporter then goes onto talk about “destroying a speed camera legally”, however, there is absolutely no suggestion that these cameras will ever be “destroyed”. They have made their money in that area and enough people are aware of them in that location so they are no longer generating revenue so they will just be removed and relocated to another area. And so the lies and deception of this article begin.

We challenge you to write to Mr Duncan Gray and ask him for his written confirmation that the 10 cameras he mentions will actually be destroyed. Is there anyone reading this who is willing to bet us that the cameras won’t simply be relocated???

The story then details the fact that revenue from these cameras is “soaring ahead .... up by 45%”. Again, do you really think that they would “destroy” cameras that were making them that much money! And, can someone please explain to us – or the moron at the NRMA - how an increasing road toll and a dramatically increasing revenue stream is in any way proof that, “this sends a very clear message to the community that the cameras are about safety and not about revenue raising.” We cannot fathom why he would even make such a ridiculous statement.

And, if Mr Gray’s comment that “the best way to beat a speed camera is not to speed” were true, then; A) he wouldn’t have a job , because no-one would have complained about them to the extent that they had to create his position in the first place and, B) we wouldn’t have a website. Speed cameras are fundamentally flawed and faulty, which is why so many of them have been switched off and removed over the years. Cases are won against speed cameras every week by motorists who challenge them so, once again, that comment is blatantly false and misleading.

Seriously, the fact that this story even went to air, the fact that 34 cameras have been axed already and the fact that 10 are being removed, is absolute proof, in and of itself, that these cameras do not do what they claim they do – work to reduce the road toll.

About the only really truthful statement in the whole story is the closing remark, “Every single cent that is raised by these speed cameras is funnelled back into road safety programs”. What they don’t make clear though is that they still consider speed cameras to be part of those road safety programs and they are clearly telling you that every cent they make from these cameras is used to buy more cameras!!!!!

- The lowest of the low

And, if all of the above wasn't bad enough, we just came across the following story on A Current Affair regarding council parking inspectors wandering around in the dead of the night issuing unjust and unlawful parking fines - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article/8917511/while-you-were-sleeping  

Now, not that we would ever condone such a thing but, if a few of these officers were jumped by people in the dark - the streets can be dangerous at night, after all - then we dare say that they would cease this kind of disgusting behavior pretty quickly. Sometimes, the best way to fight fire is with fire and, deceptive, subversive, underhanded tactics should be challenged in the same way.

Having said that, as always, there is a much better way of putting an end to these fines and that is by successfully challenging them. We remind our Members and Subscribers that we have an entire chapter - Chapter 9 of our e-book - dedicated to explaining why all council issued parking fines are illegal and how to successfully challenge them.

There is simply nothing else we can say about this abhorrent behavior by the councils - it should simply not be tolerated and if you were to ever pay one of these ridiculous fines, not only would you be breaking the law by doing so, you would also be encouraging them to keep issuing them and hurting your fellow motorists. So, please, if you haven’t already done so, grab a copy of our licence-saving e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and start fighting back against this blatant attack on our rights as well as common decency.

- But wait, there’s more – tolls soon be charged on ALL roads!

Yes, you read that heading correctly, there has now been a proposal put forward for tolls to be charged on all roads in Australia. Don’t believe us? Then check this out - http://www.news.com.au/finance/money/every-road-in-australia-should-have-tolls-says-report/story-fnagkbpv-1227067053501

This is just absolute madness and is the ultimate in revenue raising, as well as proving that Aussie motorists are the dumbest, most apathetic group in the word! Think that’s a harsh statement? Please tell us any other country in the world where they would even think of such an insane proposal. It wouldn’t happen because there would be absolute outrage! Has there been outrage here? Have there been mass demonstrations and revolts in the streets? No, most people don’t even know about it.

This is, quite simply, disgusting.

The fact that they treat us with such complete and utter contempt is disgraceful. The fact that the general motoring public allows them to get away with it is even worse!

As we explain in our e-book, our roads are created in fee simple – We, The People own them – we cannot be charged to use them, but how many people know that? Our taxes pay for the building of these roads and, as such, they belong to us – they are not “theirs” to tax (toll).

But, once again, this proposal will be pushed through and legislated if people don’t fight back. We can detail to you what’s going on, we can hopefully fire you up to take action and we can even explain what action to take but, ultimately, you are the one who actually needs to take action to stop this.

So, if this angers you – and it damn well should – and you want to tell these morons where to stick their “proposal”, then please take a moment to go to this link -  http://competitionpolicyreview.gov.au/draft-report/submissions/ - and make a submission and explain that you are expressing Your Will that our roads remain free from tolls – as section 92 of the Commonwealth Constitution dictates – and you do not authorise them to approve any such proposal.

You only have until the 17th of November to lodge your complaint though so please fill it out straight away and spread it around via e-mail and Facebook and ensure that everyone does the same because if you don’t take action then you only have yourselves to blame when this is made law sometime next year!

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

As always, we have received a number of new Testimonials again this week from Members who have successfully used our information and strategies to defeat a number of unjust and unlawful fines. We know this e-mail is getting a bit long again so we have just included the one this week.

This is from a Member who used our information to defeat both a speeding fine and a parking fine.

Hi there

I really enjoy reading your regular letters and I was sad to read your frustration in the second last one so I thought to brighten your day with a couple of good news.

First I had a win against the City of Kingston for a Parking Fine at Southland shopping centre. I sent all the letters mentioned in your book, but they were totally ignored saying that there is no legal basis for them and no one has ever won the argument about  the validity of local councils. So I elected to go to court.

At the contest hearing, I again argued the validity of local councils, saying that the signs are very misleading with zones of 2 hours and zones of 4 hours and I thought some signs were added since the fine. I asked to show me a full brief of the alleged offence.

Kerry Piner showed me a photo of my car and on a separate photo, a white mark on a tyre.

I told her to prove that the mark on the tyre was actually on my car. She could not and was surprised about my question. I asked her to withdraw the fine and she refused. I told her that I will challenge the fine and left the room and the court, without going to the clerk to have a date for the hearing.

Two weeks later, I received the attached letter saying that the fine has been withdrawn because the issuing officer could not attend the court on the day. Strange, because it is not difficult to set another date.

Anyway, I won.

Secondly, I got a speeding fine in a 60 zone, allegedly travelling at 68 Km/h.

I wrote to the traffic camera office explaining why I was not speeding and giving many reasons. This was not accepted, so I elected to go to court. I did not use your letters because I thought that I had enough evidences to the contrary. ( See my partial attached submission. )

During the meeting with the police prosecutor, he told me that he never saw these arguments and it should be an interesting hearing. At the hearing, the magistrate listened to my arguments, the police prosecutor was very interested and did not really argue with them.

I crossed examined the camera operator and he also had no idea of what I was talking about, especially the rule 61% and 82% of the location of radar beam left hand setup. The main evidences came from the Victoria Police Training Manuals where all sorts of  possible interferences are listed and should be avoided. ( See my submission )

Here there were High power lines above the speed camera car, a Metal fence opposite the car and the camera probably badly setup. It lasted more than 2 hours. While we were waiting for the magistrate decision, I had a good and pleasant talk with the police prosecutor. She was not confident of winning .

At the end, the magistrate came back, was not too sure what to say, elaborated on the case and my evidences to the contrary and decided that the case was proven but dismissed.

I am still not sure what it really means, but I did not have to pay the fine and if I lost one point, I don't care since I had 12 of them.

I would encourage anybody to challenge every speeding fines, especially if they think that they were not speeding.

Check for the possible interferences, challenge the operator and the photo.

Good luck.

Gerard – Vic.

21 September, 2014
A must read, live or die e-mail - it's seriously that important!

- Intro

First off, this week, we would like to say that we are humbled by all the messages of support that we received after our last e-mail update. A number of our founding Members were on the verge of a breakdown with the ever-increasing workload and were seriously contemplating “throwing in the towel” but, your e-mails have invigorated and inspired us to keep going – all-be-it with a few changes, which we will get to towards the end of this e-mail update.

We would also like to note that it appears as though a few people also took our last e-mail the wrong way – we obviously weren’t trying to attack our Members in any way, we were just desperate for them to take more action because that is what is sorely needed right now.

So please be sure to refer to the Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards at the end of this e-mail update and send us your postal address so we can send you out some business cards and stickers to help us spread the word. Please also be sure to sign up for our affiliate program - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Affiliates.html - where you can earn a 33% commission on everyone you refer to us who joins up as an E-Book Member. That effectively means that if you refer just 3 people, your E-Book Membership is free!

Anyway, we have a ton of stuff to cover so let’s get straight into it ….

- Why fines have now become a life and death situation

We read articles on traffic fines almost every day, most of them are quite frustrating and some are even shocking, however, nothing comes close to the article that we read this week. We are still absolutely gobsmacked to hear that a 28-year-old woman died in jail and the only reason she was there was because she failed to pay a few traffic fines. You can read the full story here – http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2014/08/26/aboriginal-woman-who-dies-wa-jail-was-there-unpaid-fine-0

Now, we have a number of issues and questions regarding this article. First and foremost, how does something like this even happen; A) in a modern society and B) given the existence of Section 8, Subsection 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act?

Secondly, the comments made by Shadow Aboriginal Affairs Minister Ben Wyatt are absolutely correct, so why are they still putting people in jail for a failure to pay fines when it costs the government more to house them in the jails than the fines are worth? This shows you that it is about even more than just “the money”, it is actually about exercising complete and utter control over us.

We have mentioned George Orwell’s book “1984” before and most people reading this will already have a solid understanding and concept of what a true Police State is and we think that this story illustrates very clearly that we are well and truly on our way down that track. Now, we’ve said it 1000 times before and will continue to say it until our dying breaths, the only way to put an end to this impending doom is for us all to stand up and fight back collectively.

A final question regarding this article is, why was this only reported on SBS and not on “mainstream” media? Clearly, the so-called “authorities” do not want people to find out about this story.

So, there you have it, failing to challenge a fine can literally be a life and death matter now. Is your life and the life of your family and friends worth $67? We would certainly hope it’s worth a hell of a lot more than that. And, if it is, then why haven’t you joined up as an e-book Member yet? We know it sounds like an extreme example but, as you can see here, having our e-book can literally save your life - not only in a situation such as this but, as we’ve reported before, we are aware of a number of people that have taken their own lives because of mounting fines and/or a loss of licence and the subsequent loss of work and income and the impact all of that has had on them.

Please, if you or anyone you know is yet to join up as an E-book Member, simply go to - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - and join up now. And remember, our e-book comes with a fall 30 day money back guarantee, free updates and ongoing email support for life and, as is proven by our four full pages of testimonials, our information works!

- Proof that fines have nothing to do with “Road Safety”

Now, if saving your life or that of someone you love is not enough reason to join up as an E-book Member, then we really don’t know what will be. We do know, however, that traffic fines have absolutely nothing to do with “Road Safety” and are simply about revenue raising and control over the general motoring public. And, hopefully, that, in and of itself, would be enough for you to join up and fight back against unjust and unlawful fines.

If you want some further proof of this though, please have a look at the actual TAC statistics from their own website - http://www.tac.vic.gov.au/road-safety/statistics/road-toll-year-to-date  Despite more fines being issued this year in Victoria than ever before, the top of that web page clearly shows that the road toll has increased compared to the same time last year.

If you have a look at this document from NSW - http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCYQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Froadsafety.transport.nsw.gov.au%2Fdownloads%2Fdynamic%2Fnsw-road-toll-daily.pdf&ei=yS8eVKvRLYj18QXOgoGoCQ&usg=AFQjCNFCQk8LEM2zsdhJDtldvPvcpqEaXg&bvm=bv.75775273,d.dGc - you will see that exactly the same applies there too.

And, over in the west, it is exactly the same story again - http://www.police.wa.gov.au/ABOUTUS/Statistics/FatalCrashStatistics/tabid/1073/Default.aspx  What’s truly shocking about those statistics is that just happens to be where the lady died in jail, as per our story in the section above, over a few unpaid fines.

Can someone please explain to us how on earth the various State governments and their corporate agencies can continue to justify installing more speed cameras and enforcing outstanding fines in light of these statistics, which clearly show that the road toll, in general, around the country is increasing.

The only way they can justify it is because it’s making a bucket load of money for them!

The reality is that things are only going to get worse unless we all start fighting back against these fines and against the enforcement of these fines and, the simple fact is, that our e-book shows you step-by-step exactly how to do just that.

- Things are escalating in Victoria – the “test” State for all other States

Everyone complains that their State is the worst state for fines and, the reality is that they are all getting worse. However, as we have reported time and time again that “honour” consistently goes to Victoria - Victorians are issued with more fines than any other State and the enforcement actions that are taken against Victorian motorists are also worse than any other State. They include; wheel clamping cars, seizing property, licence and registration renewal sanctions and, usually, a combination of all of the above.

In essence, our view is that Victoria is used as a “test” State - basically, they see what they can get away with in Victoria and then they slowly but surely implement it in the other States. New camera technologies - including speed and red light cameras - are generally introduced in Victoria before any other State, they were also the first to get number plate recognition systems, which are now regularly used to enforce outstanding fines.

So, it will come as no surprise to hear that Victoria is now launching their “biggest ever” traffic blitz. You can read the full details of what’s happening in Victoria right now via this link - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/victoria-police-launch-biggest-ever-fourmonth-traffic-blitz-on-speeding-drunk-and-drug-drivers/story-fni0fee2-1227051742918 - and you can be sure that if it is successful - and by “successful”, we mean raises a lot of revenue - it will be coming to your State soon after.

Now, let’s just put this back into perspective and explain the absolute absurdity of this blitz to you. If you refer to the section above you will see that more traffic fines have been issued in Victoria this year than in any other year, yet the road toll is higher this year than it was at the same time last year, which the police even admit in that article. So, what are they going to do to try and help reduce the road toll? More of what they’ve already been doing, which clearly hasn’t worked - does this make sense to anyone out there?

We know we’ve said it before but it seems to apply now more than ever - the definition of “insanity” is doing the same thing again and again but expecting a different result. Clearly then, the Victorian State government and Victoria Police are insane! Are we the only ones concerned about this? Because, if this is of concern to you to - as it definitely should be - then you need to actually do something about it.

And, finally, can someone please explain to us, how using these new “hi-tech BlueNet vehicles” – as they state in the article above - is going to, in any possible way, help to reduce the road toll when they clearly only exist to “identify owners with outstanding fines”.

We have to tell you, we are sitting here writing this just shaking our heads - we simply just don’t know how to get this message across to the Australian motoring public in general; fines exist purely to raise revenue, they have absolutely no bearing on “road safety” what-so-ever and, the only way we going to put an end to this revenue raising madness is to collectively fight back against all ineffective, unjust and unlawful fines.

- South Australia is just as bad

And, things are just as bad in South Australia as well. This report, from Today Tonight, details how SA motorists are also being hit with a host of unjust and unlawful fines too – http://www.todaytonightadelaide.com.au/stories/freeway-fines

As Owen Godfrey, from the No Speed Cameras party – http://www.nospeedcamerasparty.com/ - clearly states, “They’re absolutely nuts – how can they do this to the motoring public?” He goes onto say “They’ve got rocks in their head” and, we were shocked to see that the media have finally reported on the fact that speed cameras cannot be “pattern approved” according to the National Measurement Act – as Owen states and, which is what we have been explaining in our e-book all along!

So, here you have cameras issuing fines when there are two vehicles in the photo – which is against the manufacturers guidelines - the cameras themselves are being positioned on a downhill slope – which is, again, completely against the site selection criteria - and, as the reporter correctly states, “If the technical accuracy of the cameras can’t be guaranteed, nor can the integrity of the company manufacturing them” – which is completely in line with the numerous updates we have sent out recently, reporting on the Redflex corruption scandal – then how can they keep using them.

This is actually one of the best, most accurate and truthful “mainstream media” stories we have heard about on the subject of unjust traffic fines – well done Today Tonight. The story even goes on to report on the “quotas” that SA Police are being instructed to adhere to – as we also detailed in our last e-mail update.

Owen Godfrey sums it up perfectly when he refers to the fact that, “it is typical of the thuggery and scam that is going on to simply collect this illegitimate revenue.”

We would urge “Linda” and anyone else affected by these fines, or any other fines, for that matter, to stop trying to “talk sense” to these “thugs” at the Fines Enforcement Agency – or any other related/equivalent agency around the country – and, instead, use the tried and tested strategies in our e-book to specifically challenge their fines instead.

- An unbiased overview of speed detection devices

Obviously, we have a somewhat “biased” view on speed detection devices, given that we have been researching this area for well over 10 years now. Accordingly, some people have accused us of being “too passionate” about our e-book and the importance of fighting back against unjust and unlawful fines. Now, we would hope that all the information that we have provided in our regular email updates over the last 7 ½ years, as well is as the information in this email update alone, would be more than enough to prove that it is simply not possible to be “too passionate” in this regard.

However, having said that, we know that not all Aussie motorists are as focused on this information as we are so, we thought that we would provide you with a far more balanced and conservative overview of speed detection devices. We would urge you to read this article from Drive.com.au - http://www.drive.com.au/motor-news/the-truth-about-speed-cameras-20140903-10awi1.html

You will note that this journalist refers to the legislative requirements for NATA testing as well as compliance with national standards – something that no speed detection device currently being used in Australia actually has. Accordingly, there is simply no way for the police or any other agency to prove that any speed detection device is accurate.

The reporter also makes mention of the fact that speed detection devices can often detect the wrong vehicle and he also makes mention of the quota system that we all know that all police work within. The final section of this article, entitled “Good behaviour could get you out of trouble” raises some other important points.

Firstly, the fact that if you have received multiple fines within a short period of time, you can have many of them withdrawn – we have had a lot of success with this by using our new Multiple Fines letter. Secondly, is the fact that you can be let off with a warning in certain situations if you haven’t had a fine in the past two or three years – something that we also cover in our e-book by way of our Request Leniency letters.

So, once again, you have further proof that speed detection devices are not infallible, they are often inaccurate or detect the wrong vehicle and, this is why you should challenge every unjust and unlawful fine that you receive.

- Some changes at Aussie Speeding Fines

As we mentioned at the beginning of this email, we have found ourselves really struggling to keep up with the workload over the past few months – in fact, as we mentioned, it got so bad that we were seriously considering stopping altogether. We had a number of meetings and discussions with our founding Members - who are the ones that do the majority of the work day in and day out - and, being buoyed by so many emails of support from our Subscribers and Members, we decided that we would have to find a way to keep going but we simply had to reduce our workload.

As a result, we have been forced to implement the following changes at Aussie Speeding Fines: Firstly, we have decided to do these regular email updates every 3 to 4 weeks now instead of every 2 to 3 weeks, as were previously doing. Obviously, if there is anything exceptional or urgent that we need to inform our Subscribers and Members about, we will send out a special email in that regard.

Secondly, we have, over the past 7 ½ years, prided ourselves on answering every email that we have ever received. Unfortunately, with the 23,000+ Subscribers and Members that we now have on our database, it is simply no longer possible to continue doing that. Having said that, we are committed to continuing to provide exceptional service to our Members, therefore, we have expanded our list of FAQs - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/FAQs.html - and we would ask you all to please read those FAQs - especially the ones towards the bottom of that page – before you email us with a question. This will save us an extraordinary amount of time and frustration and will ensure that we can continue to personally answer every email that is not otherwise answered elsewhere.

Thirdly, following on from the above, we feel that it is only fair to remind you that our e-book packages start at just $67 – even the most expensive package is just $131 - and, therefore, we ask all our Members to please be fair and reasonable when emailing us and asking us questions. We are certainly here to help and support you but we think that most people would agree that it is well beyond the scope of expected support to send multiple page documents, fines and letters – especially detailed defences - and ask us to read through them, in-depth, and provide feedback.

Please understand that we charge a one-off fee for life and it is just not fair or reasonable to expect us to hold your hand through every step of the way. If you are after that level of support then, dare we say it, you would have to engage a liar-for-hire (lawyer) at an average rate of $300 - $400 per hour. We take this opportunity to remind you that our e-book is there to inform you and educate you as to your rights. We are not lawyers and we cannot give legal advice, we are happy to help and support you but we ask you to please apply some common sense and fairness to your requests of us.

Finally, we note that we do have an Advanced Membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ - which is available for a very minimal fee, for those who want more detailed information, including access to; a wide range of court cases, letters and correspondence from leading experts, as well as documentation from people who’ve won their cases in court and, also, links to download all of the manufacturers speed detection manuals.

And, thanks to John Vico and our friends at the Know Your Rights group – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au - we have just uploaded the relevant sections of the specific Acts in each state that relate to the Statute of Limitations applicable to the time frame for taking fines to court. These can be accessed via the links at the very bottom of the Downloads page of our Advanced membership website.

We thank you all, in advance, for your understanding regarding these small changes and we trust that by implementing them we will continue going from strength to strength over the next 7 ½ years and, hopefully, even longer.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

As always, we have received a number of new Testimonials again this week from Members who have successfully used our information and strategies to defeat a number of unjust and unlawful fines.

The first is from a Member who used our information to defeat both a speeding fine and a parking fine.

Dear Aussie Speeding Fines,

In the past few months I have contested two fines using the three letter technique; 1) a speeding fine and 2) a parking ticket.

With the speeding fine I sent out the first letter. The police responded with the standard, "We will investigate". They then came back with the usual "the fine stands" letter and gave me a period of time in which to pay which fell within my 28 days from the date of the first letter.

Regardless, when the 28 days had expired I sent out the second letter and then shortly thereafter followed it with the third.

With the parking ticket the local council responded and very strongly suggested that I should not waste theirs and my time and money by pursuing this line of defence/attack and that I should get "competent professional" legal advice.

I still sent the second and third letters.

In both cases the police and the local council ignored the request for the matter to be heard by a court of competent jurisdiction and handed the fines over to SPER who kindly sent me their demand for payment plus the overdue fees. About this time Queensland Transport also got involved in the act and deducted points from my licence.

In both cases I responded by producing a letter of my own in which quoted the Imperial Acts Application Act in which it says, "That all grants and promises of fines and forfeitures of particular persons before conviction, are illegal and void." (emphasis added)

I then asked how it was that the police and the local council could bypass the Australian Constitution and create legally binding laws (the inference here is that the road rules code nor the council by-laws have received Royal Assent and therefore are not laws) and the Imperial Acts Application Act and levy fines and forfeitures before conviction.

In both cases SPER responded in writing by stating that they had handed the matter back to the police or council.

In the case of the speeding fine SPER also said that the police had stated that they would be taking the matter to court. However it is now 5 months after that claim and nothing has happened.

In the matter of the council, the council actually wrote back in response to my "fines & forfeiture" letter and agreed with me (without directly quoting anything in my letter) and withdrew the matter.

I haven't heard back from Qld Transport in respect of the deducted points but then I haven't chased them either. I'll have to do that, just to make sure that there are no loose ends.

So, I'm two for two.

Thanks Aussie Speeding Fines!

Jay – QLD.

Our second is from a Member who defeated a parking fine after the council withdrew the fine once he elected to have the mater heard in court.

Gday guys, thank you again for all of your info through the e-book and the regular updates.

You may recall I mentioned I received a parking fine from Lake Macquarie council near Newcastle for parking in a non-designated area which I was not even in the same suburb that day.

I elected to go to court which I received the court hearing date and a week before I stalled them and said I could not attend that day or for a couple of months due to work commitments.

I also mentioned that I work for myself and had not had any income for the past 3 months so had to take some work out of town.

The following Monday (hearing was on a Thursday) I received the letter from the local court saying I had my adjournment two months later which I was keen to go to court and challenge as I had a signed Stat Dec to say I was working in another suburb some 40 minutes away during the time the fine was issued.

The following day, I received the attached letter from the council ranger saying the matter was withdrawn. So a nice win with only a few letters written and some perseverance and sticking to your guns.

Feel free to share with everyone.

Regards,

Mat – NSW

And, last but most assuredly not least, we received this very short but sweet e-mail from a Member who has successfully defeated 11 out of 13 fines using our system.

Thanks for your reply guys,

My brother and I have won 11 out of 13 letters and court appearances over last 5 yrs or so. Stupid nonsense like 5 ks over etc.

I spread the word wherever I go.

I am on to know your rights and CLRG also. I read everything you send me, keep it up!

Cheers,

Peter

The latest traffic fine madness and what you must do to stop it!

- Intro

Well, we were fired up last week and whilst we received a hand full of positive, supportive e-mails from our Members, on the whole, it seems as though most people either ignored what we had to say or, at the very least, failed to take any definitive action.

So, we’re over it!

We will continue bringing you the latest, most up-to-date information and strategies for defeating your fines but we no longer care if you do anything with it or not because your collective failure to take action will very soon affect each and every one of you and we simply can’t carry around the burden ourselves any longer.

We bust our asses here at ASF 16+ hours a day, 7 days a week – many of you have commented that you receive a response 1am or 2am in the middle of the week or late on a Sunday night etc. That’s how committed we are to making a difference but, if we can’t encourage the general motoring public to take action and to fight back against unjust and unlawful fines then it’s all for nothing.

This e-mail update contains a heap of media articles to show you the direction that things are going and gives a very clear indication of where things will end up if the general apathy of Aussie motorists continue – as they say “If you keep doing what you’ve always done then you’ll keep getting what you always got!” Things will continue to get worse if we don’t all fight back.

Conversely, if you do find it within you to take action and fight back against this ridiculous, ineffective and corrupt system that is currently being forced upon us all, then you will also find some very positive articles in this email update as well, with numerous stories of people who have fought back and won.

At the end of the day, it is up to you to decide whether you are going to continue with the excuses like, “It’s all too hard”, “I haven’t got time to fight my fine” – which will only lead to more of our rights being eroded – or, alternatively, you can choose to stand up and fight back.

Whatever you choose, please remember this: “If you’re not part of the solution then you’re part of the problem!”

So, read on and make a decision ......

- The police are here to make money from you, not protect you

The most disturbing article that we came across this week was a confession from a police officer who details that the police exist now purely to make money for the States and not to protect you at all.

Now, please don’t get us wrong here, we know many police personally and there are many good, honest cops out there trying to do the “right thing”, but, the issue is, the way “the system” is now structured is that it is all about money first and foremost.

Don’t believe us?

Check out this candid post from a police officer in the US - http://thefreethoughtproject.com/incredibly-honest-yet-disheartening-infuriating-confession-cop/  Quite obviously, the very same principles apply right here in Australia as well.

In fact, in South Australia, it has, once again, been revealed that the police are being forced to comply with quotas – sorry, “benchmarks” - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/emails-reveal-south-australian-police-push-to-hit-their-traffic-fine-benchmarks/story-fni6uo1m-1227038031547 - we don’t care what you call them, it all means the same thing – the police are there, on the whole, simply to extract money from you on behalf of the government.

At least the officer in the first story had the decency to quit when he realised that what he was doing was a scam – if only we could get more of the traffic cops here to do the same!

Once again, we urge you to please pass this e-mail – or, at the very least – the video link below – onto every parking officer, parking ranger, police officer and/or Sherriff’s officer and challenge them to watch it and quit - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg

At the end of the day, if there’s no-one left to do the government’s dirty work, to issue ridiculous, unjust and unlawful fines or to go around enforcing them, then the various government will have to listen to us and change their ways!

Parking fine insanity

We received a story from Melbourne regarding parking officers being concerned about people abusing them and spitting at them - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/parking-officers-fear-spitting-abusive-parents-outside-port-melbourne-school/story-fni0fit3-1227034405154  Now, whilst we certainly don’t condone that kind of behavior, one has to ask the question, what would drive, otherwise, ordinary, law abiding motorists to take such extreme action?

Some of the text in the article sheds some light on this. The Port Melbourne Primary School principle states, “It’s a very small minority but that small minority has caused a lot of grief.” – now, is he talking about the abusive parents here or the inspectors themselves??? We would argue that if it wasn’t for the “small minority” of parking inspectors wandering around, no-one would be abusing anyone!

Two lines down, we see the real cause of the issue, “Parking congestion has been a growing problem ….” Now, if the council spent as much money on creating more parking as they did on employing revenue raising parking inspectors, again, we submit that no-one would be abusing anyone.

Then the real crap – the justification, begins - “At the end of the day it’s the safety of the children which is of biggest concern.” As we stated at the start of this e-mail, we have been working some pretty insane hours so maybe it’s our sleep deprivation but, given that there was not a single mention of any accident, injury or any type of actual harm befalling anyone, can someone please explain to us how issuing parking tickets is helping safety!!!

Spitting at people and abusing people is obviously completely unacceptable, but so is walking around issuing ever increasing fines to motorists who have done nothing wrong, who have harmed no-one and then justifying it to yourself under the completely false and misleading guise of “road safety”.

We also received this article out of Sydney - http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/city-of-sydney-council-parking-fines-drop-amid-claims-of-bad-management-20140826-108fqh.html - and, on the surface of it, it seems like a positive article – parking fines were down on last year.

However, when you actually read the article they, once again, talk about “budgeted revenue” from parking fines. And, once again, we ask, “If parking fines are designed to stop people parking illegally and the government honestly believes in that strategy, why are they “budgeting” even $1 from fines?” – surely, they should expect zero income from fines if fines really are the deterrent that they claim they are. If they’re not then this is just a blatant tax on motorists and if that many people are still “breaking the law” then surely there must be an element of “entrapment” to the whole system.

The kicker though is the statement from Liberal Councillor Edward Mandla who suggests that “The drop in fines revenue should trigger alarm bells and a restructure of the department” – what the???? So, more people are complying with the law and that should trigger alarm bells – if that doesn’t prove to you that they don’t actually want you to comply – they just want you to “pay up” - then we don’t know what will.

Please keep in mind that we elect these people into power to do our bidding! Is that really what you voted for? If not then vote with your voice and write letters objecting to these ridiculous, unjust and unlawful fines and send a loud and clear message to idiots like Mr Mandla that comments and attitudes like that will simply not be tolerated

- The latest revenue raising madness from around the country

And, following on from our stories above, the revenue raising madness is in full swing around the country. Firstly, the South Australian government has just introduced new legislation allowing for the clamping of cars in order to convince people to “pay up” - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/state-government-has-issued-its-first-orders-to-clamp-vehicles-owned-or-driven-by-fine-dodgers/story-fni6uo1m-1227030638124?sv=4d32c6667385923dd587ec5ae4732ab5&net_sub_uid=105700191&nk=53913111228cb85ede5c4aa7ea8f8173

Now, this really isn’t anything new, it has been going on for years in Victoria but it is now slowly but surely being introduced into other States around the country as well. Remember this though, any item that is fitted to your vehicle becomes a chattel of your vehicle and becomes your property. For example, if you lease a car and fit aftermarket wheels to it and then the leasing company takes the car back, those wheels now belong to them. It’s exactly the same with Sherriff’s clamps so, be sure to keep a set of bolt cutters or a cordless angle grinder in your boot at all times.

Let us also not forget that section 8, sub-section 12 of the imperial Acts Application Act, clearly states that “All fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void” – that includes forfeiture of your right to drive, or forfeiture of your ability to drive your vehicle because it has been clamped. Be sure to grab a copy of our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – for further details.

Now, when we checked the link to the story above, it included a 30 second “news update” and the first story mentioned was about the garbage truck that ploughed through an intersection killing two people that caused the grounding of the entire Transpacific truck fleet. Many people around the country had their garbage collection service affected as a result of that accident. Again, we ask someone to please explain to us how a speed camera or, in this case, a red light camera, could have possibly stopped this accident and “saved anyone’s life.” This was clearly a tragic accident but, like the majority of accidents, whether there was a traffic camera around or not has absolutely no bearing on the outcome those cameras exist purely to raise revenue.

The reality is that the governments are so hell bent on making money and issuing fines that they even issued a fine to a couple in Victoria who were on the way to the hospital to have a baby - http://www.9news.com.au/National/2014/08/23/18/48/Parents-slapped-with-fine-for-speeding-on-the-way-to-hospital-to-give-birth-plead-for-leniency There was no-on on the road, there was no accident so why is there any need for any financial penalty or punishment? The stupid thing is that an ambulance – which doesn’t handle anywhere near as well as a car – could have been doing 20 or 30 k’s over the limit and yet they wouldn’t have received a fine – it just doesn’t make sense!

- Further proof that it’s all about the money

We have mentioned the corruption scandal a few times in the past involving Redflex and bribes that they have been involved in over in the US and here’s the latest update - http://indaily.com.au/business/2014/08/26/corruption-claims-dog-sa-speed-camera-supplier/

Is there anyone out there that honestly doesn’t believe that the exact same underhanded, backdoor deals don’t happen right here in Australia as well?

Whether you’re in the US, Australia or any other country, the following statement, by New Jersey assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon, rings incredibly true – “How any public entity can continue to do business with Redflex in particular, but really any of these companies pitching these ineffective, thieving cameras is beyond me.” The fact that our government is more than happy to continue “doing business” with them proves, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that they are purely interested in the revenue side of things and not “road safety” at all.

Thankfully, they are not as apathetic in the US as we are here and enough people stood up to expose this scandal that it has had the effect of red light cameras being turned off and even removed in some states – which we have reported on previously.

There was another interesting article out of the US that we received this past week as well - http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2014/08/speed-cameras-issued-thousands-of-bogus-tickets-in-long-island/  Now, the fact that they refunded so many tickets is great to hear but the important point to note is the statement that, “The development highlights that automated traffic ticketing isn’t always up to speed.” And, again, it makes no difference whether you live in the US or Australia, that same principle applies – cameras get it “wrong” far more often than they get it “right” and that is why it is so important for everyone to fight back against every ticket they receive!

- And now the good news

Okay, so that’s the “angry” parts of this e-mail update out of the way. We really hope that the sections above convince you to start taking action and fighting back because things really are getting completely out of control in this country when it comes to the blatant revenue raising committed by the various State governments.

As we said at the start of this e-mail update though, we do have some very positive news to share as well and, the first thing is that it appears as though people are slowly but surely starting to “wake up” to the truth. People are finally getting the message that the government lies and deceives us every day with their ridiculous  speed camera propaganda and the following article proves it- http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/motorists-ignored-3m-speed-camera-ad-campaign-government-documents-show/story-fni0fit3-1227027379506?nk=77f39ac44df65b31d8928249da2a6ca4

The fact that people are no longer blindly buying into this crap is a great start but the next step is to really start taking action and fighting back. If 75% of people admit to speeding “occasionally or more often” and yet they are not causing accidents, then we need to put an end to the “Speed Kills” and “Every K over is a killer” garbage that the government agencies keep spreading.

And, if “more than half of Victorians have received speeding fines” and there are almost 6 million people in Victoria then we should have a hell of a lot more than just 23,000 Members – we should have millions!  Please if you don’t yet have our licence saving e-book or you know someone who doesn’t then please go straight to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and join up straight away. At less than half the cost of a single fine, our e-book can be used on every future fine you ever receive and it also comes with a full 30 day money back guarantee plus free updates and e-mail support for life - it is, quite simply, the best motoring investment you will ever make!

Then, once you have our e-book, you can challenge ridiculous, unjust and unlawful fines, just like this guy did - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/apprentice-daniel-liemareff-wins-case-involving-exaggerated-traffic-fine-for-nearly-reversing-on-to-police-officer-on-gouger-st/story-fni6uo1m-1227026822317

Now the beauty of this story is that not only did he beat his fine but he was awarded nearly $3,000 in costs. Just stop and think for a moment what would happen to “the system” if every time the police issued a $200 - $300 odd fine that, not only did they not get paid but they were then forced to pay ten times that amount to you in costs! The system would come to a grinding halt in a matter of weeks. It can be done, but it just needs to be done by more people.

Some really great news is that we are getting more and more Members from “across the ditch” in New Zealand and they are embracing the concept of fighting back with a vengeance.

This article - http://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/news/10405333/Lawyer-gets-speed-camera-ticket-thrown-out - details the story of a lawyer who successfully challenged a speeding fine and not only won but made a very powerful point that others can rely on in their own cases – here and in NZ - and he didn’t even mention whether he was, in fact, speeding or not!

Then there was this article - http://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/news/10426999/Council-takes-12-ticket-fight-to-High-Court - where a legal researcher challenged the validity of a local council to issue a parking ticket – the exact same argument we teach people in our e-book – and he not only won but has, so far, cost the local council $10,000 in appeal costs.

Again, just do the sums in your head for a minute – if everyone challenged a $12 ticket and cost the council, police or any other agency $10,000, the whole system would collapse in a heartbeat! So please, it costs you nothing to challenge a fine, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain and, as these stories show, your victory can also positively affect many others as well. We just need more people fighting back.

- Advanced information

Many of you will be aware that we have been regularly adding additional content to our new Advanced Membership’s website – we recently uploaded links to all of the speed detection manuals for the majority of devices currently being used in Australia and that was on top of the incredible information that has already been uploaded over the past few years.

Well, thanks to our partnership with the guys at the Know Your Rights group, we have now uploaded a whole heap of important court cases that we’re sure will be of benefit to our more advanced Members who understand all the fundamental arguments that we cover in our e-book and are after some more progressive/higher level strategies. You can find links to those cases, including a brief description of them as well as some summaries, via the “Downloads” page on our Advanced Membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/

Speaking of the Know Your Rights group, if you haven’t yet been to their website, be sure to check it out – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au Many people have contacted us over the past few years asking us to cover topics over and above just “traffic fines”. Well, our research and expertise has been specifically targeted to all types of speeding fines, parking fines, red light camera fines etc. but the guys at the Know Your Rights group cover a whole range of interesting additional topics including: the ultimate banking fraud, why personal tax is voluntary and the ATO is not a legal entity, the Commonwealth Constitution and how it applies to you and a number of other very powerful areas regarding our freedoms.

They also expand on the “Strawman” concept that we cover briefly in our e-book and they have a very important section on “Local Government” that we urge you all to get involved in. If you go to the Local Government page on their website - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/local-goverment/ - you will find a Press Release for most states, that you can print out along with a cover letter – that you can also simply download from the same page – and then send it off to your local MP to find out how they have managed to circumvent the Commonwealth Constitution and enable local councils to act as a third tier of government, which they are not lawfully allowed to do.

There is also another very powerful class action that we urge you all to spare 30 seconds to get involved in. You can find details of the class action on this website – www.localgovernmentclassaction.com – and it takes just 30 seconds to register your name and e-mail as an interested party. This class action will greatly reduce council rates across the whole of Australia and will also look at eliminating council issued parking fines as well so it is something that affects everyone!

The Know Your Rights group also have a internet radio show that they run every Tuesday night between 8pm and 10pm AEST. Not only do these shows explain a ton of information about all kinds of topics – such as the ones detailed above – but you can also e-mail or sms the guys live on air and they will answer any questions or comments you may have. This is a great resource for those wanting to learn more about their rights and you can listen live each week by clicking the link on their Radio Show page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/

11 August, 2014
Our most powerful and informative e-mail yet - long but well worth the read!

We’re going to warn everyone up front this week that we are fired up! This is going to be a hard hitting, no punches pulled, e-mail update this week because we have simply “had enough” of the crap.

We slave away 7 days a week, 16+ hours a day and the message is still not getting through to some people. So, this week, we are making sure that the message gets through. Be warned that this week’s e-mail is going to be confronting and “in your face” so, if you can’t handle that then just delete it now and crawl back into your safe haven of lies and deception that the government keeps feeding you and try and sleep comfortably knowing that “If you’re not part of the solution then you’re part of the problem”.

If, however, you are strong enough of character to face the truth head on, to handle confronting facts and figures, that cannot be denied, and you are prepared to “take action”: and do something about it, then please read on .....

- New “SuperCams” heading your way

There has been a lot of talk this past week about the new “supercams” that are being introduced in Victoria that will then, no doubt, filter through to the other States and Territories of Australia soon after.

It started with an article in the Herald Sun - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/speeding-motorists-wont-escape-hitech-supercams/story-fni0fee2-1227010671008 and then A current Affair did a story on them - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article/8886389/the-new-super-speed-cameras- and the figures that were detailed in this story, in regards to just how much money these cameras are raking in, is just insane!

The fact that speed and red light cameras is already a $1 billion a year industry in Australia is bad enough but the fact that we, the Australian motoring public have allowed the people that we elected into power to look after us to bring these new cameras in just shows what a complete and utter joke we are to them and how they are laughing, at our expense, all the way to the bank!

Now, we’re not sure about you but we do not like being laughed at, we do not like being made fun of, we do not like being lied to and we do not like being bullied – and that is all that is going on here. The various state governments are treating us like idiots, they are filling our heads full of absolute garbage – “Speed Kills”, “Speed cameras Saver Lives” and the like – and we are buying into it, opening up our wallets and handing over our already far-too-hard-to-come-by income for absolutely no reason!

Speed does not  kill, a speed camera has never saved a single person’s life and, for the morons that still believe “if you don’t speed then you won’t get fined” – please just delete yourself from our mailing list because if you still don’t get it after all of this time then there is simply no hope for you!

Are we being harsh? Are we being blunt? Good!!! Because we are at the end of our tether here. We just don’t know how to make it any clearer to people – speed cameras are simply there to rob us of our hard earned money, they have absolutely nothing to do with “road safety”.

The woman at the start of the ACA story says “We don’t want a nation of people looking down at their speedo” and that is all these cameras are creating. And, not only that but, just because you spend your whole time staring at your speedo , it doesn’t stop you from getting a fine anyway because these cameras are still fundamentally flawed and will continue producing erroneous readings anyway so, even if you always drive below the speed limit, you will still be likely to get a fine!

As the reporter says “It’s easy to see why State governments are such big fans of them (speed cameras) the money they are raking in is astronomical”. Then you have that idiotic NSW RTA President who makes an absolutely absurd statement that “There is no such thing as safe speeding”. Now, whether you want to admit it or not, we guarantee that every person reading this e-mail has exceeded the posted speed limit at one point in time or another and they didn’t have an accident, they didn’t kill anyone so this categorically proves that this moron is just repeating government propaganda rather than stating something that has any bearing at all in reality

Now, compare that with what motoring expert Sam Stevens says; “I don’t know how its helping safety when you get a fine 3 weeks later in the mail.” She then goes on to say; “A fixed speed camera or red light camera is not going to catch someone drunk, or someone doing the wrong thing on the road, someone on their mobile phone.” Owen Godfrey expands on this and explains that “Speeding cameras do not save lives, what saves lives is on-going education.” He goes onto to confirm that “Speed cameras are a billion dollar a year industry that governments are totally and utterly addicted to.”

Well, you know what you do with addicts, you either wean them off their addiction or you force them to go “cold turkey” – you do not keep supporting their addiction! So, we urge each and every one of you to pass this e-mail onto everyone on your contact list, share this section on Facebook, blogs, forums and anything else you can think of and ask people this simple question:

Are you going to continue supporting to “revenue habit” of the various state governments or are you going to fight back against every fine you get – using the step-by-step information that is contained in our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and help those poor, addicted government officials, that we elected to do our bidding, to beat their addiction!

At the end of the day, these new “super cameras” really aren’t all that different to the cameras that are already out there – current speed cameras can detect people from both the front and the rear and most can do it over 4 lanes now as well. These new cameras can be challenged just as easily as any other speed camera fine – they do not comply with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act, there are no “originating specifications” against which they are tested and they are just us fundamentally flawed and faulty as every other speed camera out there – including the numerous cameras that have been ordered to be switched off as a result of various independent tests.

Quite simply, you can, and should, fight every speed camera fine – as well as any other unjust and unlawful traffic fine – that you receive. As we have said a million times, the only way to put an end to this on-going madness is to flood the system with challenges, bury these agencies in paperwork, fill up the courts and ultimately, stop the money flowing into the government coffers.

If you don’t believe us then please be sure to check out the message to all Aussie motorist form “Stan” (not his real name) – who was not only an ex-police officer but also an ex-police Prosecutor. He sent us a detailed e-mail, which we have uploaded to our Advanced Membership website – www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ - and it clearly explains why he believes that everyone should challenge every fine they get.

- More proof that it’s just about the money

Following on from the section above, we were sent another article from a few of our Members this week that details the fact that Transurban – the company that runs the toll roads in Melbourne and Sydney – raked in $1 billion worth of tolls but only paid $3 million in tax. You can read the full story here - http://www.smh.com.au/business/transurban-pays-just-3-million-tax-despite-collecting-1-billion-in-tolls-20140805-100le8.html

If you want to get really fired up, have a look at how much the CEO was paid – almost $5 million – and how much directors and top management were paid - $17 million. Remember, this is all money that was stolen from the motoring public by fraudulent means. All roads are created in “fee simple”, they belong to Us, The People and, pursuant to Section 92 of the Commonwealth Constitution, they cannot lawfully charge us to use those roads!

So, once again, we ask you – are you going to allow these kinds of absolutely insane figures continue - $1 billion in revenue, $5 million income for one person – or are you going to start fighting back and challenging every toll fine you receive?

Of course, the choice is yours but please don’t come back to us in a year or two – when tolls have been increased simply because “they can be” and when the fines for failing to pay tolls goes through the roof, because that is exactly what will happen if you keep blindly “paying up”. Remember, they will just keep putting the tolls and fines up, as long as people keep paying them, when they reach a level that people stop paying then they will stop putting them up – send them a loud and clear message, right now, that they have already well and truly exceeded that level.

Oh, and if you don’t believe us, we urge you to have a look around on our Facebook page and other similar Facebook groups because in the past few weeks we have seen a number of new company fines that have been issued for over $2,100 for exceeding the limit by just 3 or 4 k’s an hour. Yes, you read that correctly – if you have a company car, the fine will now come out to you with an amount of over $2,100 – even if you were only a few k’s over the limit!

How do they get away with charging those amounts? Because big businesses and corporations don’t care, they just pay them and this sends a message to these agencies that they can just keep putting them up.

Once again, you have been warned. We provide everything you need to know to fight back against speeding fines, red light camera fines, parking fines, toll fines and all manner of other traffic fines in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” - but, at the end of the day, as they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.

It’s all there, ready and waiting for you with step-by-step instructions - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and we even provide you with a full 30 day money back guarantee. If that’s still not enough to make you take action then we simply don’t know what else will – and don’t write to us with some rubbish of “If it was free we would do it” because, seriously, if you won’t spend a measly $67 and show us that you value our time, effort and research then you certainly won’t value you anything that we give you for free!

See, we told you we weren’t going to pull any punches this week – enough is now enough, it’s time to seriously fight back!

- Further proof that the police are not who they believe and say they are

Thankfully, it’s not all bad news this week – in fact, we have a number of very positive stories to share with you - we just hope that the positive stories inspire you to fight back against the injustices that the “negative” stories detail.

Last week we included an article that stated that police officers were not employees of the States. Well, one of our founding Members sent us through this interesting article from the US - http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2014/08/north-carolina-judge-rules-police-and-other-government-agencies-are-actually-private-entities-advises-police-to-put-assets-into-other-peoples-3008176.html - where a North Carolina Judge similarly rules that police are operating in their private capacity and can be sued personally.

Now, this is fantastic news for any of our advanced Members that are aware of the distinction between operating publically as opposed to “in the private” and for those who understand the distinction between you, the flesh and blood man or woman and your ALL CAPS or Strawman name. Please be sure to check out the Know Your Rights group information on this subject, if you haven’t already, via this page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/strawman/

If you are fully aware of, and able to stand up for your rights – yet, another reason why it is so important to have our e-book before you actually get a fine, so that you know exactly what to say the minute you are pulled over – then this ruling means that you can easily sue a police officer right here in Australia for any wrong-doing – US rulings apply here as well and are used every day.

You will note that this ruling clearly states that police and other government “officials” are deceiving the general public – they are not what they are portraying to their constituents, they are not immune to prosecution and the public is being defrauded by these people – see 1:40 mark of the video. It goes onto say – around the 3:00 mark - that 99% of all law enforcement entities are private companies!!! You can read more about this incredibly powerful ruling here - http://rayservers.com/blog/north-carolina-judge-ridgeway-rules-govt-agencies--officials-are-private-entities-

- Latest confirmation that speed detection devices don’t comply with Commonwealth legislation

Every so often people question us about the relevance of the National Measurement Act and the WA Fisheries case that we include in our e-book. They refer to letters from Victoria that suggest that the National Measurement Act doesn’t apply to speed detection devices or they refer to correspondence from QLD police that suggests that their devices do, in fact, comply with Section 10 and a whole range of other arguments.

And, thankfully, every 6 months or so, one of our Members takes the time to write to Dr Richard Brittain, the head of the National Measurement Institute, to confirm that everything that we detail in our e-book is 100% correct.

Well, this week, we received a copy of another one of these e-mails, whereby a Member has written to Dr Brittain asking if any speed measuring devises (sic) that are used buy (sic) police are exempt from the National Measurement Act. You can read his exact e-mail below:

From: Jim xxxxx

Sent: Sunday, May 03, 2009 7:33 PM

To: Trade

Subject: Question??

To Whom it may concern

I would like to know if the speed measuring devises used buy the police are exempt from the

National Measurement Act 1960 (cth) And if so why and were 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

Regards

Jim

The reply from Dr Brittain – which clearly confirms that speed detection device are not exempt from the National Measurement Act - is detailed, word for word, below.

Dear Mr xxxxx,

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

Yours sincerely

Richard Brittain

We really don’t know how to make it any clearer than this – no speed detection device is exempt from complying with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act and, previous responses from Dr Brittain – which we have sent out in previous e-mail updates such as this – confirm that no device currently complies with Section 10. Therefore, every speeding fine is illegal and can and should be challenged – this includes any fines from the new “super cameras” that we covered in our opening story!

- Huge Parking Fine win

And, we are saving the best news article this week for last. This article out of Melbourne - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/city-of-melbourne-to-refund-nearly-35000-parking-fines-wrongfully-issued-20140730-zycbz.html - absolutely made our week. It details the fact that the Melbourne City Council had to refund almost 35,000 wrongfully issued fines.

More importantly, this article highlights the fact that despite what the government, police and courts try and tell us, mistakes most assuredly are made, all the time. This is just a major one that happens to affect a lot of people. Rest assured, similar, although maybe slightly less major mistakes, are made on a daily basis, it’s just that the media only bothers to report on the big ones, that’s all.

In this case, it was 2 officers that weren’t properly authorised – mind you, they still aren’t and neither are any other council officers. In other cases, it’s mobile cameras that have been set up incorrectly, hand held speed detection device that have been used incorrectly, an incorrect speed zone has been entered into the data block for a speed camera or just the “everyday” issues whereby no speed detection device complies with Commonwealth legislation – see the section above.

At the end of the day, any of you who have ever been involved in business or in property would have heard of the old saying that “the deal of a lifetime comes along every day.” Well, the same is true when it comes to fighting fines - the opportunity to challenge a fine also comes along every day. As with any other opportunity in life though, you need to act on it!

- Know Your Rights group will be interviewing an ex-police officer this Tuesday

And, last but definitely not least, our friends at the Know Your Rights group will be streaming live on their internet radio program on RAT FM again this Tuesday at 8pm AEST.

And, this week, they will be interviewing David Woods. Now, for those of you who don’t know who David is, he was a police officer for almost 10 years until he “saw the light” and realised that everything he was being told by his superiors was a lie. He has now dedicated his life to uncovering the truth about fines, our Constitution and a whole heap of other areas.

So, no matter what you had planned for this coming Tuesday night, cancel it, put it on hold or do whatever you have to do to be in front of a computer so you can listen into the Know Your Rights broadcast live because this promises to be one of their best shows ever. And, not only that, but David will answer any questions you may have for him live on air!

You can listen in live by going to http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/ and clicking the “Listen Live” link and you can e-mail the guys on air at knowyourrights@ratfm.com or you can sms or text them on 0412 711 755.

They also have a ton of other incredible information on their website, including a number of podcasts of their previous shows which, if you haven’t listened to them already, you’ll definitely want to. Also, be sure to visit their Home page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/ - where you can sign up to receive notifications of any additions and updates to their website as well as a head’s up on their broadcasts each week.

These guys are doing a fantastic job of trying to inform and educate the general public about their rights and freedoms in a wide range of areas so if you can spare a few dollars to support them, please feel free to make a donation via the link near the bottom of their Home page too.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We have, once again, received a number of new Testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information and strategies to defeat a number of unjust and unlawful fines.

Our first e-mail is from a Member who has successfully used our information to defeat a number of different fines. What makes this testimonial so powerful is that it conveys the greater message behind fighting your fines and standing up for your rights – the feeling of power and freedom that you get as a result – something that is so hard to convey in our e-book.

Hi ASF,

Since first reading your book the biggest reward has been a sense of self empowerment. This is more priceless than ANYTHING to do with money.  Thanks to you opening my eyes I continue to educate myself in this field.  I've been more willing to receive fines as I refuse to play their game anymore.  I keep my eyes on the road because its safer than watching the speedo. I'm willing to drive right through a cop flag-down because I know they have no right to stop me.  I park where I need to and never ever pay the meter.  I never pay for tolls. So my empowered choices mean from time to time I receive 'Claim's and I happily refute them.  

Those bits of paper with threatening words on them stopped scaring me. I know who I am and I know what they are.  It's clear to me that every single bit of resistance is a chip in the wall. Every single letter I send helps the next person, and helps influence the public servants mindset, and weakens their morale. It's so important to defy them at every turn. Are you a slave? Then stop acting like one! 

I've definitely made mistakes in my approach in dealing with the goons and those mistakes have been very valuable and educational. With the letters, it seems to be a case of 'who can best intimidate the other, wins'. The three step letters work often, and the court election is often the deal sealer - sometimes one just hears nothing back.   My trick is to keep piling on the pressure - bury them in correspondence if necessary. It's often not necessary but I do like to write my own follow ups.  

As the ASF book says - they don't want to work too hard. Make it hard for them. Let them feel the heat.  They do it to us!! To be honest I don't use registered mail anymore - an unnecessary cost especially as I don't need to prove anything in court most of the time.  It definitely helps if you need to demonstrate how professional and serious you are however.   I have learnt that SPER are near impossible to deal with if the fine gets too old, and been happy to do volunteer work to pay off some fines which I see as really good karma for me and the community - turns the tables on the pirates. Just make it out its impossible for you to give them any money - interestingly the community service form has no threats for giving 'misleading' information. See how little authority they have?


I am at the final stage of cancelling a large SPER debt using a promissory note which is very exciting. Brisbane and Sunshine Coast councils are so, so happy to send threatening letters - even when they accept your court election they say how much its going to cost you and offer you the option to pay!! Surely that must be illegal - pursuing the fine after accepting the court election! Does someone know how to prosecute them on that?   They even use a lawyer in Caulfield (Melbourne) to send you stuff which is a third party - gotta be illegal?   They are happy to be bullies but display great cowardice in retracting the fine when I write back spelling out the reasons they commit fraud every day. 

God, I hate cowards, bullies and liars. What sort of person do you need to be, to do that kind of job?! When they retract the fine I have considered calling them on it but realise, wow there’s nothing I can do for people with such weakness of character.  They deserve my pity. I'm glad I have values and try live each day being of service and support to my community instead of being a thief without a spine.

My recent deal sealer said ' By registered platinum mail, in 7 days can you please send me the name, address and phone number of everyone whom has handled your claim against me including call centre staff.  I need it for the class action against Councils taking place.  It will save me a lot of time, thanks.  I also thought you'd appreciated being saved the expense & humiliation of being subpenaed.  You feel so entitled to my own information I know you'll be comfortable and forthcoming returning the favour. Actually can you include their TFN's also please. Does your insurance cover your employees for this kind of thing?"

The force of a mailed letter is always superior - it's recommended - but with councils one can correspond via the form on the website and it's done the job for me when overseas and saved me a lot of time.

Red light cameras always seem to go off when I have a japanese or chinese hitchiker from overseas driving - just the ways it seems to work out. It's instantly retracted - I am glad the fine will be forwarded for them to be responsible for.   I just hope the address is easy enough for the officials to work out.

And our second is from a Member who successfully dragged a fine on for almost 2 years and then walked away without paying a cent! You will note again the reference to the confidence that this Member had from reading our e-book as well as the on-going support that he received from us.

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to pass on my thanks. I had a case dismissed at Mention hearing today. My alleged offence was Sept 2012, Laser Gun reading (in the rain, downhill). My election notice was "lost" and CC threw my further correspondence "in the bin". My case was challenging a Warrant Revocation rejection, so all this time I thought I was fighting Civic Compliance. The Prosecutor made it clear today that CC (and extra monetary fines) were out of the picture and it was now just between myself and the issuing Officer and his Speed Detection Device.

The Prosecutor thought it was ludicrous that I would want to challenge a laser gun at a technical level and that I would have to prove that I was not speeding (I didn't bother saying, "I don't know what law you operate under, by I operate under the Commonwealth law of innocent until proven guilty"), but I did suggest that the equipment needed evidence of it's capability. She showed me the papers and said here is the evidence (I kind of went 'Meh').

After all that, she said that I have a clean record, a good history of 28 years, and could also go for an Inquisition where the Magistrate may grant me a Sec 76. So later in the court room, the Mag granted me the 76, based on that the reading (12k's over) was closer to the 10 and not the 25, so she would dismiss if I pleaded Guilty. I double-checked that no monetary fines would be attached, and case was dismissed.

Vic Roads had already docked me 3 points (threatening my loss of licence), and gave me a one point leeway for 12 months. That time lapsed and I'm now back to zero points. I don't know whether they will add the three points again, but at least they are not getting my money.

My confidence has been solely in the information you have provided via your ebook and email correspondence, so thank you. I'm glad I didn't have to take it to the High Court, and I'm a bit shitty that I had to plead 'guilty' when I wasn't, but I guess that is to just brush their ego at the end of the day.

At least in the future, I will know how to tackle this from the word go.   


Best Regards,


Darren – Vic.

26 July, 2014
The latest media articles and success stories from our Members!

Before we get started, this week, we would like to remind everyone that we have organized links to all the training manuals for the majority of speed detection devices that are currently being used in Australia and you can access those via the Download page on our new Advanced Membership area – http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ We have also included a link to a script that you can use if you are ever pulled over by the police, which one of our QLD Members has developed and used himself.

Once again, we have been absolutely inundated with media articles over the past week or two and those articles have had an interesting balance between positive news of people successfully fighting back against unjust and unlawful fines and the fact that more fines being handed out and more revenue being raised by the governments of this country.

If reading the following sections doesn’t both concern you, and inspire you to take action and fight back, then we are at a loss as to what else to say or do because it really does affect all Aussie motorists.

So please, take the following information to heart, get angry and take action!

- Crazy fines being issued

The videos below detail ridiculous fines being issued, many for things that people didn’t even know would attract a fine. The whole concept of giving someone a monetary penalty when they haven’t harmed, hurt or deprived anyone of anything is absurd, in and of itself, but issuing people with fines for things they didn’t even know were “wrong”, is just simply unacceptable.

The first one we came across was about a motorist who was fined $113 for simply trying to sell his car – http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article/8873448/man-fined-over-cars-for-sale-sign - something that every motorist has done at one time or another in their life. The reasons that the council gives for justifying this ridiculous fine are, quite simply, outrageous and offensive to anyone with even half a brain.

We then came across a similar situation in the Northern Territory, where this man was fined $144 for the same thing - http://www.ntnews.com.au/news/northern-territory/cullen-bay-man-james-colthart-cops-fine-from-darwin-council-for-selling-car-in-public-place/story-fnk0b1zt-1226880124164

We certainly hope that these motorists have read chapter 9 of our e-book, which details why local councils have no lawful right to issue fines, as they are not recognized under the Constitution as a valid level of government. It is also important to note that any by-laws apply only to employees of the council and not the general public.

We take this opportunity to remind everyone to join the CLRG class action against the validity of local governments and you can register your interest on this website – www.localgovernmentclassaction.com Please note that you do not need to be in Victoria to join and, once the class action has been won in Victoria, it will have a flow-on effect to all the other States and territories as well.

The second article we came across covers a whole range of fines that are now being issued in WA, many for things that motorists didn’t even realize were offences and, most of which, are, again, completely ridiculous - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/video/watch/24514662/the-wa-road-traps-that-you-should-be-wary-of/

Why on earth should you be fined for not wearing a seatbelt? If you want to increase your risk of dying or experiencing a serious injury by not wearing one then shouldn’t that be your decision. Why should you be fined for failing to give way to a pedestrian? As long as you obviously don’t hit them, what is the issue? Yes, of course, people should be courteous and give way to people all the time anyway but, if we issued to fines to people every time they weren’t courteous, half the population would be bankrupt!

We are, of course, very glad to hear their logical and sensible approach to fining people for driving too slowly but it is very interesting to note that, although the guy admits that driving too slowly can be just as dangerous as speeding, the fine for doing 20 k’s under the limit is more like a slap on the wrist and doesn’t at all equate to what the fine would be for driving 20 k’s over the limit – please refer to our section on speed limits being set too low near the end of this e-mail.

Another important point to note is to see  how they mix their words to try and confuse you – check out the very start of the video where the host refers to “road rules”, then the first guy to speak also refers to “road rules” but then, the voiceover woman refers to “the laws designed to keep us safe”. These are two completely different things – the road rules, as we explain in our e-book, are just that, rules, they are not law. And, as above, rules only apply to the employees of a corporation and not the general public!

If you don’t fully understand this small but extremely powerful distinction then you need to get our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – straight away.

- Insane numbers of fines being issued Victoria

It looks like Victoria is keen to regain their title of more fines being issued there than any other State. This article - http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/speed-red-light-cameras-net-34-million-in-27-days/story-fnii5smt-1227001999626 - reveals that 3 new speed and red light cameras raked in $3.4 million worth of revenue in just 27 days for the Victorian government!

As always, there is absolutely no mention of even a single accident, let alone any fatalities, at any of these locations. Now, if “Every K over is a Killer” and all the rest of the BS propaganda that they try and shove down our throats is true, how on earth do they justify blatantly raping motorists to the tune of $3.4 million in just 27 days when not a single accident is reported despite all those people supposedly “speeding”? Quite simply, they get away with it because you let them.

We can’t fight your fines for you but we can, and do, provide you with all the information and strategies that you need to successfully challenge these ridiculous, unjust and unlawful fines. Your job is to actually use that information to fight your fines and then help us spread the word and get others to fight back as well.

We take this opportunity to remind you that that were so committed to making a difference that we will actually pay you for helping us to spread the word! Yes, that’s right, you can actually earn a 33% commission on every member who joins up as part of your on-line recommendation. Please be sure to go to our Affiliate page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Affiliates.html - for full details. Many people are earning a very nice bonus each month just for helping out their fellow motorists so, what are you waiting for?

- Some positive news from South Australia

Thankfully, it’s not all bad news this week. We received a couple of very positive articles from SA that should ensure that our Members realize just how many mistakes are being made in the constant revenue raising game and how, by simply increasing the number of people objecting to and fighting back against their fines, we really can make a difference.

The first article discusses parking a review of parking fines in Adelaide - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/adelaide-city-council-will-review-the-policy-of-waiving-parking-fines/story-fni6uo1m-1226990285562 - and, whilst it is nice to hear that they are going to clarify why they are stealing money from motorists a little more clearly, there is actually a far more important point that has been made in this article.

If you look about half way down the article, you will see this very powerful but subdued statement, “In comparison, just one in four contested fines from motorists or residents were waived over the last financial year.” Now the reporter is trying to play down this number in comparison to the number of fines that were waived for Councillors but this figure is very important. They have admitted than 1 in 4 – that’s a full 25% of people - who challenge their fines are having them waived. That is huge! All we need to do now to bring them to their knees is to get everyone to challenge their fines.

Just stop and think for a moment what would happen if they immediately lost 25% of their revenue! And, now imagine everyone who challenged their fines was armed with our invaluable e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” – that figure could easily jump 50%, 60% even 70% of people who challenged their fines winning and that would, quite simply, bring an end to the system as we know it.

Again, we can’t do it for you – we need your help to spread the word and encourage everyone you know to fight every fine they receive!

And, the second article, also from Adelaide, is just as exciting as it details, once again, just how simple it is for mistakes to occur in their supposedly “flawless” and “always accurate” automated speeding fine/revenue raising system. This article - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/sa-police-to-refund-3373-companies-14-million-after-internal-audit-finds-300-corporate-traffic-fine-was-incorrectly-applied/story-fni6uo1m-1226988387627 - details the fact that SA Police had to refund $1.4 million worth of fines. Ah, it brings a tear to our eye just to say that.

There are two very important facts to note in this article. The first is that mistakes, once again, have been made. Any time you walk into court with an automated fine, just ask the Prosecution, “Can you prove to the court that an erro,r similar to the numerous errors that have been detailed in the media in recent times, (eg. flaws such as this one, the wrong speed being entered into cameras, ex-employees being able to hack into cameras, cameras being switched off because they been proven to be inaccurate etc. etc.) could not have occurred in this instance?” There is no way they can prove that so they have to admit that, yes, there could have been an error and, right there, is your reasonable doubt, which is all that is required to have a charge dismissed.

The second point is that their “explanation” for this stuff up is that “police had failed to notice the law change that passed through Parliament.” – now, just remind us again what it is that the police and the courts shove down your throat when you weren’t aware of a particular law, as we detailed in our opening section. Yes, that’s right, it’s; “Sorry, but ignorance of the law is no excuse.” – what’s good for the goose must also be good for the gander.

Let’s see if we can get a lawyer to run a class action for loss of interest, stress, pain and suffering etc. for these 3400 companies because the police simply “didn’t realise the law had changed”. After all, if the police themselves didn’t know then how the hell are we, the general motoring public, supposed to know – this is outrageous and they should not be allowed to get off scott free!

- Proof that the police are not who they believe and say they are

There was a very important case that was reported on this week in The Age newspaper in Victoria, that relates to compensation for injured police. If you read this article - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/state-denies-duty-of-care-to-injured-police-20140705-zsxbd.html - you will see that the State government themselves decree that police officers are not employees of the State.

They go on to refer to the Police Regulation Act 1958, which, again, in and of itself, raises another very important point. In the sections above, we noted that the road rules, like regulations, are not actually law. Now, in this instance, the regulations have, in fact, been enacted as valid law – this distinction against just goes to prove that the road rules are not actually law at all.

But, getting back to our point, if you actually look at those regulations - http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CBwQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.legislation.vic.gov.au%2Fdomino%2FWeb_Notes%2FLDMS%2FLTObject_Store%2FLTObjSt3.nsf%2Fd1a8d8a9bed958efca25761600042ef5%2F456f60c76a68a583ca257761002ac625%2F%24FILE%2F58-6338a131.pdf&ei=XGTTU8OcBsSPuATCrYDYAg&usg=AFQjCNEbWAj-NxcEdTb3HNYtV1MxGu0ZBA – and go to page 234, you will see the oath that police officers have to swear.

You will note that they swear to serve “Our Sovereign Lady the Queen”. However, the High Court case of Sue v Hill 1999, dictates that The Queen is a foreign power so the Victoria Police are swearing their allegiance to a foreign power which is, quite simply, treason! Rest assured that the very same issues apply to police officers on other States and territories as well.

Now, this, of course, has enormous ramifications and we’re hoping that the police “officers” themselves will actually acknowledge that the very government that is using them as glorified revenue raisers and debt collectors is now going to “disown” them when they need something in return from the government and that there is, perhaps, no longer any reason to pursue their careers as police officers.

We think that this is a brilliant time to direct those of you who haven’t seen it yet to this powerful video by Josie the Outlaw – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg - please pass it onto every police officer and Sheriff’s Officer that you know and share it with your friends and family because it contains a very powerful message.

- Some groundbreaking news from the US

And finally, this week, we want to share some very positive and interesting stories that we came across out of the US. The first is an article that backs up our position that most speed limits are set too low and that increasing speed limits will actually make our roads safer - http://priceonomics.com/is-every-speed-limit-too-low/ Again, this another great article to forward onto any police officers, especially Highway Patrol, that you may know and see what their response is.

This is a very detailed article that explains that speed limits are being constantly reduced in order to raise more revenue and what causes accidents is not speed itself but a large variation between the speeds that different motorists are traveling at on the same road. This is all explained from the point of view of a high ranking State Trooper and his quest to have speed limits in the US raised in order to make roads safer!

The second article that we wanted to share with you is about yet another city in the US that is stopping the use of red light cameras because they have, once again, been proven to have nothing to do with road safety and they exist only to raise revenue. You can read the full details here - http://www.myvalleynews.com/story/79335/

One of the most powerful statements in that article can be found about 9 lines down - "The will of the people takes precedence over the interests of the bureaucracy," That same statement should apply equally here as well. Our Government has been elected, by us, to do our bidding. We, The People, need to express our will and one very simple way to do that is by signing our on-line petition to have all speed and red light cameras removed from service - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html

And, last but not least, is an interesting video that suggests a far more pro-active system to make roads safer than these insidious red light cameras. We urge you all to watch this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWfVdLul_6U – so you can see some of the innovative strategies that people are now coming up with that will reduce the ever increasing “motoring taxes” that are being applied to us and will actually make our roads safer – something that all these cameras and fines simply can’t do.

Our parting question to you this week is this, “If they can do all of this in America – admit that speed limits are too low, remove red light cameras from service and come up with innovative ways to make our roads safer – then why aren’t we doing here, in Australia?”

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We have, once again, received a number of new Testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information and strategies to defeat a number of un just and unlawful fines.

Given how much of this e-mail update has referred to red light cameras, we think it’s very fitting that our first testimonial is from a member who managed to use our information to defeat an unjust and unlawful red light camera fine.

To Whom it may concern

I purchased your E-Book and it most certainly paid dividends and was a great investment. The business cards that came with the E-Book package, were handed out with gusto and well received.

Good news Gentleman. Sometime ago, I received an infringement notice through the post in relation to a red light camera breach, and beat it with one of your well formatted letters.

MUCH APPRECIATED.

Please send me more business cards and bumper stickers.

Kind Regards,

Joe – NSW

And our second is from a Member who successfully defeated a parking fine using just a number of letters and without stepping foot in a court room.

G'day ASF team,

First up, some good news, about a year ago I decided to take on the brisbane council over a parking fine and 10 or so letters later I won without even going to court.

Needless to say they tried every dirty trick in their book of underhanded tactics to get me to just blindly pay up "or else", I stood my ground until they didn't have a leg to stand on. All thanks to the invaluable info contained in your Ebook.

So Thank you ,Thank you, Thank you!! I'm your biggest fan...

Thanks again and please keep up the great work.

Best Regards,

Peter - QLD

13 July, 2014
Some incredible success stories and the latest exciting developments!

Well, it’s been another crazy week here at ASF and, in addition to working on all our own stuff, we have also been working closely with a number of other groups to help expand the level of awareness and understanding about “the truth” and “our rights” for all Aussies – more on that below.

We have received new media articles that we want to cover and we also have the next development in the expansion of ASF ready to launch as well – again, there are more details below.

So, let’s get straight into it ….

- The next level of awareness and understanding

Many of you reading this would be acquainted with our recent work with the Know Your Rights group – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au - and we are happy to report that their radio broadcasts - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/?page_id=59 - have really taken off. In fact, there was so much demand for their information this week that it actually crashed their broadcast server which is really great news because it shows that people are hungry for this kind of information.

Be sure to log onto their website every Tuesday night between 8pm and 10pm EST and listen to their show live or, if you can’t listen live, be sure to check out the podcasts of each of their broadcasts as well.

As many of you would know, ASF has been around for over 7 years now and we have a pretty good balance between income from our E-Book Memberships and the day-to-day costs of running our website – Google advertising, web updates, on-going research, the cost of personally replying to every e-mail we receive, paying affiliates commissions etc. However, the Know Your Rights Group is just starting up and, given that they cover such a wide range of topics – banks, fines, tax, local government, the Constitution etc. – they are faced with a monumental task of trying to get everything up and running.

Accordingly, we ask you all to support them in any way you can and, if you can spare just a few dollars to make a donation to them via the link on the bottom of their home page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/ - we know they would really appreciate it and will put it to good use to expand and develop their website. We know first-hand how hard they worked last week and, if you haven’t seen it yet, you should check out their website because they have uploaded a heap of new information.

Anyway, in addition to all of this, ASF and the Know Your Rights group have also been working closely with the guys at CLRG in regards to their current campaign against “Local Government”. This is relevant to every Aussie because the current system of local government affects you in regards to parking fines, council rates and a host of other matters and what these councils are currently doing is completely unlawful.

We would ask you all to check out this page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/?page_id=55 – and, if you live in Victoria, or know someone who does, take a few minutes to download the two letters, print them off and post them to your local MP and start taking some action to let these so-called “local governments” know that their game is up – we believe that the letters for other States will be up soon.

Then, once you have done that, please take just 30 seconds to register your interest in the class action against the State of Victoria here – www.localgovernmentclassaction.com It doesn’t matter what State you live in, you can still be part of this class action and, once the Victorian one is successful, there will be additional class actions organized for all the other States and territories as well.

The great news is that people are starting to “wake up” to the truth and, better still, they’re starting to take action and that is what is ultimately going to save us all.

- The next step for ASF is now ready.

We get e-mails from time to time from people that are still confused about the difference between E-Book Membership and Updates Membership so we have decided to clarify things and to use this as an opportunity to expand our current Updates Membership website.

One of our biggest challenges is trying to find a balance between how much information we put into our e-book and how much we leave out. We want to give excellent value for money with our E-Book Membership - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - but we also don’t want to overload people – especially those just starting out down this path – by giving them too much info. Accordingly, we have now re-named our Updates Membership to a more aptly named Advanced Membership.

Our e-book still contains the most up-to-date, tried and tested strategies and will give you everything you need to successfully challenge and defeat any unjust and unlawful fines. However, we know that with the number of people “waking up” to the truth – as we mentioned in the section above – there are plenty of people out there who are hungry for more advanced information. So, we will now be using the new Advanced Membership website to bring people additional information, over and above what we cover in the e-book and our regular e-mail updates.

One example that details this new distinction is that we have now searched for and located a wide range of manuals for almost all of the speed detection devices used in Australia. Now, our E-Book already includes all of the relevant sections from those manuals that we believe you need to use to successfully challenge a speeding fine but, as we noted above, we understand that some people want more information, some want to do their own research – which we always recommend – and some just want to confirm that what we include in the e-book is accurate – which we also recommend.

Accordingly, if you go to our new Advanced Membership website – http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com – and then go to the new “Download” page (it may be tucked under the Member’s Info tab in some browsers), you will find links to various speed camera, laser, radar and site selection criteria manuals – there are a total of 9 new links on that page which will be sure to satisfy even the most avid researcher. Please note that anyone who joined up and paid as an Updates Member will be able to use the same details to log into the Advanced Membership area – it is really just a name change to avoid confusion for people that though that was a way to update their e-books.

We still, obviously, have all of the other “advanced” information relating to:

Toll fines – including extensive affidavits and outlines of submissions used by one of our founding Members to not only defeat his toll fine but to also get costs awarded in his favour;

Speeding fines – with a number of interesting links over and above what we include in our e-book.

Parking fines – Including a letter from the Attorney-General’s office confirming that councils are not recognized under the Commonwealth Constitution, a sample notice you can place on your dashboard to avoid being issued with a parking fine in the first place and, once again, extensive affidavits and outlines of submissions form one of our founding Members.

There is also an additional “Updates” page as well as a “Member’s Only” page, just for our new Advanced Membership members.

We will continue to add new information to this website and ensure that it is a valuable resource, for those more advanced Members that we have, for many years to come.

- More parking fine success

We received the following  article this week from one of our Members about a law student who successfully challenged an unjust and unlawful parking fine and won - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/law-student-scores-victory-after-being-slapped-with-fine-while-searching-for-change/story-fni0fit3-1226980909071?nk=776c923bd15ceb42417d44f5665ed56a

We have already explained many times before that these private parking fines are completely unlawful and are, in fact, some of the simplest fines of all to defeat. We even came across the following website from the Consumer Action Law Centre which, once again, confirms everything that the Aussie Speeding Fines e-book explains - http://consumeraction.org.au/are-private-car-parks-fines-legitimate/ These guys also refer to the same court case detailed above.

In addition to that case, there is also the Supreme Court case against Ace Parking Pty Ltd and Parking Patrols Pty Ltd where, once again, the Judge ruled that these parking fines are completely unlawful. We have a link to all of the relevant information regarding that case, including a link to the Supreme Court case itself, on the Parking page of our new Advanced Memberships website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com

And, as you will see from our Latest Testimonials and Feedback section below, it’s not just private parking fines that you can defeat with our information. A large number of Members have also recently defeated unjust and unlawful council parking fines as well.

- The latest traffic fine insanity

We received a number of articles again this week relating to the number of unjust and unlawful traffic fines being issued. We have decided to include all of those articles into one longer section and cover them all at once.

The first is an article out of SA regarding the new point-to-point cameras that are being installed there - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/pointtopoint-cameras-on-pt-wakefield-rd-and-dukes-hwy-to-focus-on-speedsters/story-fni6uo1m-1226980503248?utm_source=The%20Advertiser&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&net_sub_uid=97061609

You will note their statement that “the cameras had been deliberately located on two of the busiest highways that had a record of death and injury.” and not “the cameras have been located on a highway with the highest number of recorded deaths and injuries.” There is a big difference between the busiest highway – ie. the one that can make the most money – and the road that has the most deaths – that may actually help reduce the road toll if a camera was placed there. If you know how to read these articles properly you can see that they are clearly telling you that this is all about revenue raising and not about road safety at all.

The rest of the article doesn’t even make any sense because, at one point, they claim that “research showed a 50 per cent reduction in fatal and serious crashes in locations where point-to-point cameras had been installed.” – as usual, they fail to provide a copy of any such purported “research” – but then they go on to clearly state that the road toll has only dropped from 54 to 48. This is nothing like the 50% reduction they mention earlier and categorically proves that, despite the hundreds of new cameras that have been installed and the millions of dollars worth of revenue that has been raised, there is very little actual reduction in the road toll as a result.

Our next article comes from WA where over 17,000 motorists have been fined from fixed cameras alone in just 6 months - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/24434408/fixed-cameras-nab-17-000/   Just think, at an average of $150 per fine, that’s over $2.5 million they have raised, just from fixed cameras, and in only 6 months!!!  But wait, that’s with the cameras not even operating all the time – now imagine how much ill-gotten revenue is being raised by the other States around the country that have their cameras working 24/7.

As with the previous article, this one too completely contradicts itself. They begin by saying “Monash University professor Max Cameron said using the cameras too infrequently could give speeding motorists the impression they could get away with their dangerous behaviour.” But the article then goes on to say that “Acting director of State traffic operations Tony O'Donoghue said it was not necessary to have the cameras operating all the time and they had achieved a big reduction in motorists speeding in those areas.” So, which is it, cameras do and have caused people to slow down or people still think it’s okay to speed?

And, once again, their ridiculous reference to “speed” equalling “dangerous driving” has absolutely no basis in reality. Despite the horrendous number of people who were issued with fines – which is clearly only a portion of the number of people actually speeding, given that the cameras were not operating for much of the time - why isn’t there a report of 17,000 deaths or injuries?? After all’ Every K over is a killer” – or so they like to tell us.

We also received this article from WA as well - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/24374048/motorists-hit-with-tougher-fines/ - which details the fact that they will be raising even more revenue by increasing the cost of various fines.

What is extremely interesting about this article though is their common sense approach to low level speeding – which, of course, completely flies in the face of the draconian measures that have recently been introduced in Vic and QLD. In WA they clearly admit that low level speeding was not a factor in the most serious crashes and did not warrant a demerit point penalty. So, if this is true, why are other states continuing with the false and misleading propaganda that “Every K over is a killer” and why aren’t there class actions against Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill for his idiotic comments, as were detailed in this recent article - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/traffic-police-told-to-target-lowlevel-speeding-offenders/story-fni0fee2-1226807937959

Come on people, we can’t to everything for you, you have to do a bit of work yourselves - start writing to these agencies, pass these e-mails around, urge people to take action, get our e-book and fight your fines – please, do something to stop this absolute insanity!!!

What’s stopping you? Do you think that you can’t really make a difference – well, think again. This article - http://jalopnik.com/someone-finally-understands-speed-kills-province-raise-1601088776?utm_campaign=socialflow_jalopnik_facebook&utm_source=jalopnik_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow – proves that is not the case and, with enough people getting together, we really can make a difference.

Look at what they achieved in Canada through a simple video. That video went viral and now they are increasing the speed limits, which we have shown by way of studies conducted in many different parts of the world - including right here in Australia - has been proven to reduce the road toll. As we said above, we can’t do everything so if someone wants to make a video, draft a form letter to send to the government or anything else pro-active that will help bring about some positive change then we will gladly pass it onto our 22,000 Members and help spread the word.

At the end of the day, at the very least, you need to get our E-Book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and fight back against your own fines so that you can get similar results to the Members detailed in the section below. Then, once you have achieved success for yourself, you can inspire others to fight back as well and that is how we will eventually bring this ridiculous, corrupt system to its knees!

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Once again, we have received a number of new testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information to fight back against their fines and win. Our first is from a Member who successful defeated not one, but two parking fines. Please note that English is clearly not her first language, yet, pure persistence paid off in the end, even after some very shifty attempts by the Prosecution to thwart their efforts. This really does show the importance of continuing your fight, no matter what!  

Hi,

I would like to inform you, how both hearings went.

As I informed you, Kingston council did not accept our second excuse not to attend a hearing in the court in Moorabbin and my mum was charged in absence +additional cost. We were really frustrated that nothing works. We went to Werrebee court and asked for a new hearing. A clerk was quite nice and he called there and arranged a document. However, we did not notice , it was only an  application for a new hearing. But we drove on a given date that morning to Moorabbin court, to face an unevitable.

The receptionist told us it is only the application for a new hearing and that we have to talk to a prosecutor if she agrees, to Mrs. Piner Kerri. She was around and she said, she has basically nothing against it. Unless my mum would plead guilty and pay the fine, it would be finished. I said no, I am prepared to defend her case. And as I was looking for some papers in my bag, she saw your book and some papers full of highlighted marks.

Then she said that a hearing is in the room no. 3 and she kindly accompanied us there and opened the door for my mum. She stayed only a few minutes and left. After a while she came back with a pile of paper for a clerk. We hoped we are there too. There we were sitting and waiting for another 3 hours.

It seemed me strange and also all cases were concerned drunk driving only. I asked a clerk when would be our turn. She answer she HAS NOT our documents and that our case will be heard in the room no. 4 (On papers for hearing, Mrs. Piner wrote no. 3 by her own hand with pencil).

We went to room no. 4 and there was sitting Mrs. Piner, looking little bit surprise to see us. Judge was not present. He came back but we were not called.  We were the last in the room and Mrs.Piner came to us and she try to get us out of the room. She said: “come out, I will explain you everything, he goes for lunch now” But judge said that he would still finish this case.

She started to speak very quickly a language we did not understand fully, Judge said ok.  So I asked her what it means, and then she explained to me that everything is finished, that mum will not pay anything. We were little bit in shock but again she try to pull us out of the room. I ask her, why she sent us to the room no. 3. She said that the reception made a mistake. Of course I went to ask the receptionist. She said that right from the morning we were signed for the room no. 4. Strange.

Next day in the post box was a letter from the Bayside council.  Here we go again! and we did not open it for next 2 days. When my mum open it, we could not believe it, the  case was dismissed, no more  procedures,  no more pay. Wow!!!

Your book is fantastic, also concerning other problems such as power of councils, local governments and other.

We appreciate any further information from you. I have on the car your stickers and I am giving out your business cards. People are interested.

Thanks again, have a nice day,

Gabriela and Viktoria – Vic.

Our second is from yet another Member who beat an unjust and unlawful  local council issued parking fine. His e-mail, along with the response from the council is included below. It is important to note that, as we have said many times before, just because you elect to have a matter heard in court, it does not mean it will actually go to court and there are still many opportunities for the fine to be dropped, withdrawn or dismissed, which simply cannot  happen if you just “give in” or blindly “pay up”

A big thanks to Aussie Speeding fines. I won my first case.

It's just an $80 parking fine, however it was a good case to begin with.

After sending in all the appropriate paperwork as per my ebook I eventually elected to attend court. 

At court the Kingston council prosecutor tried to scare me with extra costs if I lost the case etc. She also stated that the constitutional argument about Local Govt powers had been lost in court and a precedent had been set.

I elected to plead not guilty based on the fact that I did not commit the offence. Basically I stuck to my guns. 

Several weeks later I was sent the attached notice saying the case had been withdrawn.

Notably their reason is suspect, however I don't mind at all.

Cheers and thanks again

Craig - Vic

 

Dear Mr X,

Re: Contest Hearing 4 June 2014 – Parking Infringement xxxxxxx

I advise that Council is unable to proceed with this matter because the issuing officer (informant) has reigned and as such, he is not in a position to attend court to give evidence.

As a consequence of the above, I can confirm that that matter will now be withdrawn and struck out.

You are not required to attend court. This matter is now closed.

Yours sincerely,

Kerri Piner

Parking and Prosecutions Co-ordinator

Those of you with a keen eye will note that the person that signed off on this letter – Ms Piner - just happens to be the exact same Prosecutor mentioned in our first testimonial. So, for those very foolish and, thankfully, very few idiots that suggest that our testimonials aren’t real – these prove that our testimonials are 100% verifiable and can be often be very easily confirmed.

And here’s a short and sweet e-mail from yet another Member who defeated a ridiculous and, most importantly, completely unlawful, council parking fine:

Hi Support

Thanks again for your help and guidance.

Incidentally Glen Eira Council wrote me a 2nd letter to say that they have now withdrawn my Infringement Notice for Parking in a Bus Spot

Could you send me some Business Cards and Bumper Stickers to distribute

Thanks again,

Neil – Vic.

And, finally, here’s another very detailed e-mail from a Member who beat a speeding fine using our information:

Hi, I would like to add my testimonial to your other successes please.

My son received a traffic camera speeding fine in the mail. His car was registered in my name, so I received the ticket. We decided to use the ASF process to see how it went. Always willing in the end to pay the fine if we had to.

I did the 3 step process of sending the letters, and received a myriad of replies. I even received letters from VicRoads insisting they have nothing to do with it, and to leave them alone. Eventually I demanded a court appearance, as they continued the paper trail, ignoring my 3 step letters.

Upon receipt of the Court Summons I received all the information on the Camera as was requested, signed stat decs from the Service Organisation, from the Operator and someone else I can’t remember. The wad of paperwork was over 1 inch thick at this stage.

I did the process of getting the Mention adjourned a couple of times and kept insisting they move it to a court closer to our home as the offence had occurred over 100kms away. The Police Prosecutor then rang me one day. She wanted to know how I was pleading. She told me it’s no point going to the Mention, and that she would put before the court that I was going for a Hearing. I agreed.

We had a couple of conversations where I explained the unconstitutionality of all these speeding/parking fines, and the entire penalty system. She insisted I could not use that as a defence, and the Magistrate would not allow it to go to Hearing based on that defence. Morals are not allowed in a court room.

But I got my Hearing. It was booked and I attended. Very nervous, having not been in a court room for over 40 years. The Police Prosecutor picked up my brief when I was called. I didn’t go into the whole strawman business, and admitted falsely that I was the Name they were looking for. Yes, I committed perjury, but they didn’t seem to mind.

The prosecutor then waved me over. He flicked through the paperwork, now 2 inches thick, and said “Boy, you’ve had lots of correspondence in this matter.” “How about we go for a dismissal, at the Magistrates discretion?”

So I agreed. The case went ahead, the Magistrate questioned me, and again I told him about the growing movement in Australia fed up with receiving extortion threats in the mail from our State Govt. He had no idea what I was talking about. In the end, he just smiled, and said … “Oh, you forgot to tick some boxes on your fine form …” “How about we dismiss it”.

So I walked out without a conviction.

The deciding factor in my case was definitely the sheer volume of paperwork. The prosecutor, not willing to waste his morning (having never read it himself, as he was from a different area), over such a petty infringement.

Keep up the good work, spread the news,

Shane - Vic

1 July, 2014
Some amazing "must read" articles and stories of success with the ASF system!

- Know Your Rights radio broadcast at 8pm tonight

It’s been another crazy week here at ASF as we work frantically on our new servers and systems to help bring you the most effective, up-to-date, tried and tested strategies for defeating all manner of unjust and unlawful fines.

We have also been working closely with the new Know Your Rights group and we urge you all to support them by going to their website – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au - and scrolling to the bottom and making any donation that you can spare so that they can expand their website and bring you, the general public, detailed information relating to all your rights in this country.

Also, don’t forget to listen live – between 8pm and 10pm tonight – to their internet radio broadcast on RATFM – www.ratfm.com  They have promised another outstanding show tonight – this time some incredible facts about personal tax being voluntary and the fact that the ATO is not actually a legal entity!

This week, they will be interviewing one of the administrators of the ASF Facebook page as well, so be sure to join our Facebook group via the link in the last section of this e-mail so you can find out what’s going on there too. And, we just got word that the Know Your Rights group have now uploaded the podcasts from their last few shows as well, which you can access via their website or, in case you missed their incredible explanation of the Ultimate Banking Fraud, you can find more about that at Bank Secrets revealed – www.bansecretsrevealed.com.au 

Anyway, we have a lot to get through ourselves this week so let’s get straight into it.

- Speed camera secrets revealed

Although we reported on this story from WA when it broke in 2012, we had a number of people send it through to us again this past week so we figured that, if nothing else, it was at least worth a reminder to everyone. Be sure to check out this website - http://www.policespeedcameras.info/index.php/en/392-western-australia-perth-the-best-kept-secret-of-the-wa-police-and-state-government-until-now.html - which details a fundamental flaw with the majority of speed camera fines that are being issued in WA right now.

Please note that this is just one of the many fundamental faults and flaws with speed cameras that we detail in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” – which you can get here - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – if you don’t already have a copy.

And remember, these flaws don’t just exist with the speed cameras in WA, they apply to every speed camera in use, right around Australia. And, on top of that, as has been confirmed by Dr Richard Brittain of the National measurement Institute on many occasions, not a single speed detection device in use in Australia at present has been properly tested and certified pursuant to Section 10 of the National Measurement Act either.

So, no matter where you are in Australia, every Aussie motorists should be challenging every  unjust and unlawful traffic fine they receive.

- More WA madness

If faulty speed camera images weren’t bad enough, it now appears as though 41,000 motorists in WA are on the brink of losing their licence – probably many of those are as a result of paying speeding fines from the cameras noted in the section above that they simply need not have paid! You can see how desperate things are for many WA drivers here - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/24207821/8500-wa-drivers-on-the-brink/

Now, we’ve said it a thousand times and we’ll keep saying it until the message gets through – pursuant to section 8, sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act, all fines and forfeitures – including forfeiture of your right to drive – before conviction are illegal and void. So, if these fines have not been paid and these people have not been convicted by a court of competent jurisdiction then any proposed licence suspension is illegal and void.

Now, if people have paid their fines then that is a separate issue because, as we explain in our e-book, once you do that, you have accepted responsibility and guilt for the offence. However, given that we have now been around for over 7 years and we have 4 full pages of success stories, we simply cannot understand why anyone would ever blindly “pay up” when faced with an unjust and/or unlawful fine instead of fighting it.

As they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. We have spent well over 10 years thoroughly researching the area of unjust and unlawful traffic fines, we have condensed that research down into a simple, step-by-step, 85 page e-book, which you can get here - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and, at the end of the day, our information works, so just get a copy now so that you and those you care about don’t end up in a similar situation to these 41,000 drivers!

We also received an another article from WA this week which, on the surface of it, would seem like a positive, proactive strategy, in line with the many principles that we explain will truly make our roads safer – by focusing on distracted and dangerous drivers at the actual moment that they are driving in a manner that is truly likely to cause an accident - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/latest/a/24214618/police-target-distracted-drivers/

However, as you read the article, you will note that it seems they were focusing on issuing arbitrary fines for not wearing a seat belt and talking on mobile phones. Any 5 year old could understand that a person not wearing a seatbelt is not going to have any bearing on the “safety” of another driver in any way shape or form – it is simply a personal choice – and we would argue that talking on a mobile phone – as long as you were using a headset or Bluetooth device - is no more dangerous than talking to a passenger next you or singing out loud whilst driving.

Yes, of course, texting whilst driving is dangerous because it distracts you from the road but this is not mentioned in that story We would be happy to promote more police on the streets actually booking drivers at the very moment that they were driving dangerously or whilst distracted but the police need to remove speed and red light cameras – which do absolutely nothing for “road safety” - they need to raise the artificially lowered speed limits that currently exist and, they need to focus on the true causes of road trauma, not just the ones they can rely on to rake in a ton of money for the government!

We have nothing against the police themselves, we understand that they have been brainwashed just as badly as the general motoring public has and we also understand that they are just puppets for the revenue hungry governments that they service but they need to take a stand, refuse to do jobs that they know have nothing to do with road safety and, like the motoring public, if the police took a collective stand as well, we could very quickly bring about some positive and effective changes to the current corrupt system.

- Roads are now safer without traffic lights and signs

Many of you will recall our recent e-mail updates, in which we mentioned the town in Swindon, in the UK, where speed cameras were removed and accidents were reduced. In case you missed it, please be sure to check our News/Updates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2014-%252d-Current-Updates.html – so you can be fully informed about the truth about speed cameras.

Well, this week, it seems as though a town in Germany has taken that even one step further and actually removed all road signs from the road and, once again, found that traffic flows more smoothly and accidents have reduced. You can read the full story about this innovative new approach here - http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/sharing-space-german-town-scraps-road-signs-to-increase-safety-a-505246.html - and also here - http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Europe/2008/0912/p07s03-woeu.html

The second article clearly shows that all traffic moves more freely now – cars, trucks, cyclist and pedestrians – despite their being “no rules” because people pay more attention. As we explain in our e-book, road rules were originally introduced to assist with the flow of traffic and, in their infancy, they did that quite well. However, we have now become totally over-regulated and one of the biggest problems now is that everything is so controlled and so artificially slowed down that we do everything automatically.

How many of you can quickly recount the exact route that you took to drive to work today? Most of you would have to think about it for a moment because you do it automatically. We are slowed down to ridiculous levels with the current speed sign system, we just blindly go when we see a green light rather than actually checking that it is safe to continue and we pay little or no attention to the movement of traffic around us. The ASF team can see exactly why this new system, that removes signs and reduces all road rules down to just “give way to the right”, works so well.

Now, we’re obviously not suggesting that our governments should remove all signs and traffic lights from our major cities but it certainly does go to show the truth about “accidents” and, when combined with our previous stories on Swindon, the fact that speed and red light cameras are a complete waste of time, that the majority of traffic fines are also useless and that we need to focus on true life saving strategies, such as the ones detailed on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html 

- The latest red light camera issues

We received another interesting article this week out of Adelaide which details that they are now finding faulty red light cameras at the rate of one per week! You can read the full story here - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/faulty-redlight-camera-found-at-a-rate-of-once-a-week/story-fni6uo1m-1226963083991?nk=776c923bd15ceb42417d44f5665ed56a

Now, that kind of puts a dampener on the arguments that we keep hearing that these devices are “100% accurate” or “If you don’t speed or don’t go through a red light, you have nothing to worry about.” This article clearly shows Aussie motorists that they have a lot to worry about with the current system. If there’s anyone out there that actually believes the line in that article about the police being certain that “no fines were issued while faults existed”, despite the police not being able to admit how they found out about the faults, they should contact us ASAP as we have some really nice bridges for sale!

And, please don’t for a moment think that the exact same thing doesn’t happen in every other State and territory in Australia! Not only are there an endless number of faults with speed and red light cameras but the fundamental way in which they work – sending a fine to someone 3 to 4 weeks after the fact, proves categorically that they simply cannot have any real bearing on road safety. That is why we have had our petition to remove speed cameras up on our website for a number of years now. If you haven’t yet signed it, please go here - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - and do so straight away.

Please also keep in mind that we have a specific 3 step process for challenging red light camera fines – as well as all speeding fines, parking fines and the like – in our e-book and, at the end of the day, there are a couple of important points to note when it comes to challenging red light camera fines:

Firstly, the police must have two photos to have any case against you. One photo must show you behind the white line when the light is red and the other must show you continuing through the intersection. If they don’t have both photos then they can’t prove that you didn’t enter on green or amber and complete your movement across the intersection after the light was red, which is entirely legal.

Secondly, unlike speed cameras, the photos produced by red light cameras do not contain the details of the camera that took them. Therefore, whilst they may be able to produce a certificate of accuracy for the camera itself, there is no way to prove that particular camera took those specific photos.

Thirdly, they may also mention a timing or induction loop to suggest that the camera is not set off until after the light has gone red. Again, this doesn’t prove that you entered after the light went red and, as above, there is no way to prove any link between this loop and the actual camera and/or the photos that they will attempt to tender as evidence.

And, if all of that isn’t enough, there’s still the on-going scandal with the manufacturers of these insidious devices, Redflex, that we have been reporting on over the past year. Here is the latest story that we’ve come across - http://www.ferret.com.au/articles/in-focus/us-corruption-scandal-for-aussie-red-light-camera-manufacturer-n2514429?utm_source=20140526&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newslette

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Once again, we have received a number of new testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information to fight back against their fines and win. Our first is a very short, sweet and excited e-mail from a Member who successfully defeated some very expensive parking fines, and associated costs, in court.

Hi Guys,

I won - I won - I won!

The God Coast City Council lost and I don’t have to pay $1755 in parking fines.

Thank you Sooooooo very much – have a beer and enjoy it!

Sandra QLD

Our second one is from another Member who also successfully defeated a parking fine by thinking creatively and “outside the box” – something we recommend all our Members do.

Hi Team,

Had another win with this parking ticket I received last year. I sent a Stat Dec and told them it wasn't me and was not sure who it was as it could of been three people. They didn't care and, as I was the register owner of the car I must pay.

They did not respond to any of my requests, only to say it was a public safety issue why the sign was there. Well, that opened a can of worms up for me, as like all companies oh&s is driving into all of us so, as I said, they say its a public safety issue and that the officer does not have to stop and give me a ticket (he took a photo and sent the infringement in the mail three weeks later) - I used this against them.

I said to them in my third letter that if I had placed someone or myself in danger by parking there, there could be criminal intent here by the officer, as he has a duty of care to make the area safe and not only take a photo. Under work safe you cannot do that you must act.

I then asked them how did he take the photo, was he driving his car while he was taking the photo, was he parked in the middle of the road while he took the photo, what training has he had in using this new equipment for his job, is there a S.O.P. (safe operating procedure in using his camera) etc etc

I think this got too messy for them and I finally received the withdrawal notice with of cause a official warning.

I encourage everyone to do the same thing, query everything and request paperwork procedures etc 

Go Team

Greg

And then there was this one from yet another Member who beat a parking fine, and a speeding fine, in court.

Greetings

I had my day in court last week.

The speeding fine up north. I pleaded guilty with extenuating circumstances as you suggested. The prosecutor has his say including that my partner needed to get to a toilet before she “shit in her pants”.

The magistrate asked if I had any priors... he said “one about 10 years ago and one in 1956.” I laughed and said: “I should have committed a murder then you couldn’t have brought up my priors!” Everyone laughed!

Any way the magistrate let me off the fine but gave me 3 points.

On the parking offence on a loading zone with no time limit. I argued with the council “prosecutor” then the magistrate sent us outside to sort it out. Council got their time wrong and after a while he said he would withdraw the offence.

Basically had a good day!!

Regards!

Geoffrey

23 June, 2014
The next step in ASF's evolution is here - along with some great new articles!

The team at ASF has been flat out over the past few weeks and we have some very exciting news to share with you about the next chapter for all our Members that begins this Tuesday – please see the first section below. In addition to that, we have a number of other developments that we’re frantically working on in the background that we hope to share with you very soon.

We have also received some fantastic stories of people successfully fighting back against unjust and unlawful fines which is very exciting because these are now hitting the mainstream media and it all goes to prove that everything we have been saying for the past 7 years and all the strategies that we detail in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” – is 100% accurate.

So, to find out more about the exciting new developments that ASF is currently part of, as well as the details of the latest victories that should, hopefully, inspire many more motorists to take action and fight back, read on…

- The next step for ASF begins this Tuesday

As many of you who have been long time followers and supporters of Aussie Speeding Fines would know, the information that we provide in our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what we know about the “bigger picture”. Many of you would also be aware that we have been working with a number of other groups over the years and discussing a wide range of issues such as; council rates, banking fraud, taxation and other Constitutional issues, as well as all manner of other unjust and unlawful “fines”, as opposed to just traffic fines.

Well, a number of our founding Members have now formally teamed up with some other individuals and groups, who are as passionate about exposing the truth as we are, and they have now formed the new Know Your Rights Group. Now, this group is only in its very early stages but they already have their own website up – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au – and we would encourage you to check back with them regularly and/or sign up to receive updates from them as they release more information.

What’s really exciting about this new group is that they actually have their own digital radio broadcast which started last week. Those of you who are Members of our Facebook group - http://www.facebook.com/groups/19117918208/ - would have received the notification about their first “test broadcast” which went to air last Tuesday night. They had a huge response and received numerous e-mails, text messages and even phone calls during the show and, all in all, it was a great success.

Accordingly, we urge you all to go to www.ratfm.com this Tuesday between 8pm and 10pm- to listen to their show. We understand that this week’s show will focus on the banking fraud that each and every one of us are subjected to every day and, when it is explained, step-by-step, the truth about our banking system will literally blow you away. Not only that but the presenter will even give you a simple step to take at the end of the show that will A) verify everything he explains and B) puts the banks “on notice” that their “game is up”.

You can listen to the show live by simply clicking the black “Listen Live” button on the www.ratfm.com page and you can also send your support and feedback to the guys live on air by calling (03) 9017 5093 or by texting 0412 711 755 or by e-mailing the show at requests@ratfm.com and they will try to respond to every message or call that they get, live on air, between 8pm and 10pm.

This promises to be a truly eye opening show and we’re confident that the Know Your Rights broadcast will be an incredible source of information for all our Members, as well as all Australians, in the future and will cover all the topics that the media is too scared – or too controlled – to tackle.

- Proof that you can fight parking fines and win

Now, having said the above, we must admit that we are very pleasantly surprised about a number of very powerful and positive articles/stories that were forwarded to us by active ASF Members over the past fortnight that all appeared in the mainstream media.

The first story was shown on A Current Affair - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article/8862484/unfair-parking-fine-fight-back - and details just how many unjust and unlawful parking fines are being issued and explains that people are fed up, have had enough and are now fighting back.

We were very glad to see how passionate and committed the reporter was to exposing the truth about parking fines – that they are just a big cash grab by the councils – and we commend A Current Affair on their stand and for encouraging motorists to fight back against unjust and unfair fines.

As we have said all along, we don’t care how you fight back, what information you use or what steps you take, as long as you take action and do actually fight back!

- Proof that you can fight toll road fines and win

The second article is from the Courier Mail in QLD - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/bob-jarvis-crosses-gateway-bridge-for-free-after-telling-queensland-motorways-toll-is-cash-only/story-fnihsrf2-1226954622589 - and details the story of a man who not only successfully challenged his toll fines but has made his point so clear and indisputable that the private corporation involved doesn’t even bother sending him the bills anymore!

Well done Bob!

What has amazed us even more is that the Courier Mail actually printed a copy of Section 115 of the Commonwealth Constitution in that article, which proves what we have been saying for the past 7 years – fines and tolls can only be lawfully paid in gold and silver coin. Now, when combined with Sections 9, 11, 16 & 22 of the Currency Act 1965 – as is explained in our e-book – you will quickly understand that you cannot lawfully pay any fine for any amount over $20.

Furthermore, the reason why Bob has successfully managed to travel freely on those toll roads is because, pursuant to UCC law – which governs all commerce – if you tender payment in a lawful manner – such as gold and silver coin – and that is refused or no option is made to make payment by gold or silver coin, that person/company/entity no longer has any valid claim against that debt because you attempted to lawfully and honourably discharge it.

Be sure to tune into Tuesday’s RAT FM broadcast to find out more.

- Proof, from the police, that you can beat speeding fines

We actually reported on the following article when it was released in November last year and, again, we note that it came from the mainstream media, this time, the Herald Sun in Victoria.  We were sent this article by half a dozen different Members over the last fortnight so it is obviously of interest to Aussie motorists so we thought we would share it with you again - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/victoria-police-rewrite-speed-rules-to-show-you-how-to-get-a-warning/story-fni0fee2-1226754536213

There is, of course, nothing new or exciting in this article for people who already have our e-book –“Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” – because we have had this information in our e-book for over 7 years now and, not only that, but we even include sample letters that you can write to the police if these particular set of circumstances apply to you.

It is always good to remind people of this information though and it certainly highlights the fact that the police are instructed, by the governments that they serve, to keep this kind of info quiet because, of course, it dramatically reduces the amount of unjustified revenue that they steal from otherwise safe and honest motorists.

There are, however, a vast number of other ways to successfully challenge fines – that neither the police nor the media will ever tell you – and they are the truly powerful strategies that we also include in our step-by-step e-book. So, if you’re not yet a Member or you know someone who is yet to join up, please go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and get your copy now.

And make sure you get our up-to-date version with all the latest info and not some illegal, outdated copy that doesn’t have the 28 files that our latest version does, including the 25, all important, letters that you simply cut and paste your details into and send off.

- The most honest article we’ve seen in a long time

In addition to the great articles covered in the sections above, we also received an incredible article that appeared in none other than the Sydney Telegraph. It’s entitled “Big Nanny is watching you” and, again, it re-iterates so many of the points that ASF have been making for many years now - http://blogs.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/mirandadevine/index.php/dailytelegraph/comments/big_nanny_is_watching_you/#commentsmore

First, this journalist points out that there should be more actual police on the road rather than just installing more cameras – after all, the only way to truly stop a dangerous driver is to actually stop him or her in the moment that they are driving dangerously, not by sending them some fine in the mail 3 or 4 weeks after the fact.

She goes on to note, as we have done many times, that the speed limits are deliberately set too low for the conditions and specifically to catch out motorists and use that as an excuse to steal their hard earned money,. She even points out that people are getting so fed up with the ridiculous “flash for cash” revenue raising program that they are resorting to extraordinary lengths like setting speed cameras on fire!

She then notes the most telling fact of all – that despite more and more cameras being installed every year, and despite successive government vowing not to do so – they are simply addicted to the revenue that these cameras bring in, despite the fact that the road toll has not significantly decreased at all.

Once again, mirroring what we have said in recent e-mail updates, she also notes that in areas where the speed limit has been increased, the road toll has decreased and also notes that even the police themselves think that speed cameras are simply there to raise revenue.

We commend Miranda on this honest, hard hitting piece and urge more journalists and reporters to produce more articles like this and help us keep the governments that we elected, to do our bidding, honest and working for us.

- Interesting document from the courts proving ASF correct

And, last but not least this week, one of our very diligent Members sent through a copy of the 115 page Magistrate’s Court of Victoria Financial Report. Now, before you “switch off” and say, “there’s no way I’m reading through all of that”, you don’t have to because this Member has already done all the hard work and not only read through it all but also added in their own commentary on all the relevant sections.

We found this commentary to be very enlightening and entertaining and we would urge you to download the document from here – http://aussiespeedingfines.com/downloads/MCV_Annual_Report_2011_2012.pdf - and skip through to the relevant sections that are clearly highlighted in yellow.

We would specifically draw your attention to Page 39 of the pdf – (page 37 of the actual document) - which addresses to point of objecting to jurisdiction. It states that, “The committee was concerned that too often the accused will, after several appearances in the summary system, suddenly withhold consent to jurisdiction.” We have not only been teaching our Members to object to the jurisdiction of the courts hearing traffic charges but have also provided the specific case upon which to base that objection – Forge v ASIC, which is a High Court ruling, that cannot be overturned and demands that all courts revert to the way they were at Federation, not the Star Chambers that they operate now, which were outlawed in the 1600’s!

There are also numerous references to “stakeholders” of the court littered throughout this report. Now, if that doesn’t confirm to you 100% that the courts are just a business then we don’t know what will – after all, the only true “stakeholders” in seeing justice served are We, the People and we certainly don’t get paid!

We also urge you to check out Page 92 of the pdf – (page 90 of the actual document) – and see just how many “Enforcement Orders” are made by the illegal and void “Infringements Court” and just how much money they are raking in from these unjust and unlawful fines – and that’s just in Victoria. We’re confident that each State will have a similar report for their own Magistrate’s Courts.

We would like to specifically thank the Member who sent this through to us and went to all the trouble of highlighting everything to make a quick and simple reference point for all our Members. We also note that this was e-mailed through to the Know Your Rights Group, during their test broadcast last week as well so, rest assured that Tuesday night’s show will have a heap of interesting and valuable information.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Once again, we have received a number of new testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information to fight back against their fines and win. Our first is from a Member who successful defeated a speeding fine and then a red light camera fine – all in one week - in court and even with somewhat broken English! If he can do that then you have no excuse not to fight your fines.

Hi ASF team,

Using your eBook and information from there I just WON 2 fines in one week, one on Melbourne Magistrate and another on Werribee court.

First one was speeding (SPEEDING 3km OVER). After sending all three letters being answered automatically, send court request. Hearing were really short with laugh. All material for my defense was copied and handed to Magistrate. My first question to Magistrate was, can you your honor ask prosecutor, "Did your camera operators need measuring tape with them when they go to spot ". Prosecutor were laughing and say they, operators don`t need that.

Magistrate ask me to explain that, and when I said they should carry measuring tape because by operators manual, when his car is parked next to the curb, they have to measure distance of curb to wheels (4cm for both front and rear wheel) and they must have proof car was parked properly....

Anyway that was just ONE of SIX mistake in that case. Free to go, reward for me was Magistrate comment to prosecutor, If amateur found SIX mistakes, what could professional find...........WON  

Second case red camera light. Shortly, my defense was proved shortness of amber light for 2 seconds. Busy intersection with camera like that is GOLD MINE...........WON AGAIN...

Thank you so much, lets keep winning

You should be proud of yourself

Pete – Vic.

We also received a number of short testimonials as part of longer e-mails that also cover a wide range of fines that people have successfully challenged. So, rather than include everything, we have included some relevant excerpts of what other Members have to say about us below:

Just a note too that in the past when we have challenged these fines and ended up taking them to Court while we haven’t “handled” it in court on two occasions that we went it should be noted that in one case they wiped off the fine completely and in the other one significantly lowered it to almost nothing. 

Sonya - Vic

Firstly let me say that I love your book and what you people are doing. I have used your system 3 times now and have not had a response from Police in 3 years.

Peter

I've used your templates to get off 2 x unlawful RED LIGHT FINES.

Kerry – Vic.

Stay safe out there,


10 June, 2014
We're on the verge of a major breakthrough - not long to go now!

Wow! It has been an amazing couple of weeks since we last wrote to you and, even though it’s been such a short time since our last e-mail update, we have been inundated with e-mails of support and positive feedback and Members have been sending us some incredible articles that show just how close we are to a major breakthrough.

On top of that, we have some very exciting developments underway here at ASF that we can’t wait to share with you as well. So, let’s get straight into this week’s very exciting e-mail update….

- We’re closer to a breakthrough than ever before

Following on from last week’s opening topic - The impact that ASF is now making around the country - we are, this week, in receipt of even further information verifying the dramatic impact that our Members are having on “The System”.

The various government agencies in Australia are going to extraordinary lengths to try and recoup the millions that have been losing in recent years because so many people are now standing up for their rights and fighting back and refusing to blindly “pay up” – it is music to our ears.

We are constantly amazed at how absolutely insane some of these new Government initiatives are and it really goes to show how desperate the government and  these agencies have become and how much of an impact we’re really making.

First off this week, we heard of an absolutely ridiculous suggestion that, in Victoria – the land of the ridiculous fines and enforcement processes – they were trying to tell people that they wouldn’t be able to travel overseas if they had unpaid fines. Now, anyone with even half a brain knows that overseas travel is a Commonwealth matter and traffic fines are a State matter and, despite the insane lengths the State governments will go to, to try and raise revenue, the Federal government is simply not going to ignore common law rights – such as our freedom to travel – and, further, ignore Imperial Acts - upon which our Constitution was based - that clearly dictates that all fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void.

As we said above, it really just shows how utterly desperate they are now that they would propose ideas that they know they could never move forward with.

Some other articles that have been passed onto us recently echo this sentiment in other States and territories as well. For example, in NSW, they are now suggesting that they are going to ban interstate drivers that travel to NSW and have outstanding fines. You can read more about that proposal here - http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/plan-to-ban-interstate-drivers-from-nsw-roads-in-bid-to-recover-30-million-in-parking-and-traffic-fines/story-fni0cx12-1226937861849

As we explain in our e-book, no State government can suspend the licence of a driver in another State and this has been stated categorically in a court case that we personally attended. Furthermore, no State can alter the rights of a flesh and blood human being, an individual – as opposed to a driver – to stop him or her from traveling freely around the country.

On top of that, the article craps on about the RMS being able to withdraw a motorist’s driving privileges”. As above, when you understand the distinction between a traveler as opposed to a “driver” – which we cover in our e-book – you will realise that this “right to drive” doesn’t apply to you anyway and, furthermore, the U.S. Supreme Court  has already confirmed that “driving” is a right and not a “privilege” at all - http://www.realtruth.biz/driving/supremecourt.htm – and yes, US decisions can be relied and are used here in Australia all the time.

As a final bit of proof – as if anyone reading this needs any more – that this whole practice is simply about revenue raising and not road safety at all, the same article also states that overdue fines are now being sent to debt collection agencies. IHow much clearer do they need to make it that these are simply corporate agency-created civil debts, and not valid criminal offences at all. Suggesting that “people should pay what they owe” when there is no victim, and, therefore, no crime has been committed and thus, there is no requirement for any punishment or penalty, is truly absurd.

In fact, they all but say it themselves in the closing line – “…will help ensure that more money is collected” – that folks, is what it’s all about!

And, in case there’s anyone who still doesn’t think that We, The People are making an impact, check this out - http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/nudge-nudge-how-baird-government-will-get-us-to-pay-our-bills-on-time-20140601-39ch1.html - they are even looking at more “scientific” ways of altering fines to get people to pay them by making fines even more threatening and trying to make it socially unacceptable to have an outstanding fine – they are just that desperate.

This same desperation for raising money is also detailed in this article from the ACT - http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/new-parking-inspectors-will-rake-in-millions-in-extra-revenue-20140603-39ghk.html - where they too are looking to make more money by employing more parking inspectors – something that, yet again, clearly has absolutely nothing to do with “road safety” and everything to do with revenue raising.

The strategies these agencies are resorting to shows how utterly desperate they are. Now, we would never be so bold as to suggest that Aussie Speeding Fines is the sole cause of this new-found desperation but the simple fact is that we have now been around for over 7 years, informing and educating people about their rights when it comes to unjust and unlawful fines, and inspiring and encouraging them to stand up for those rights and fight back against injustice.

Co-incidentally, in the past 5 years or so, these agencies have been coming up with more and more creative ways of trying to extract additional money from Aussie motorists, they have become more desperate than ever before to collect “outstanding fines” and there are now more unpaid fines than ever before. Be sure to spend some time reading over the News/Updates pages - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/News%7B47%7DUpdates.html – that we have had up since 2008 so you can see for yourself how things have developed.

We know that a lot of people were standing back and waiting for the first few years to see how things went – the old “I want to see how this works for someone else first before I give it a shot” mentality. Well, thankfully, many others have stepped forward over the past 7 years and have taken a risk and put our information to the test. We have four full pages of testimonials now - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - that categorically prove that our information works for the individuals that choose to use it.

However, and we would say even more importantly, on a global scale – or at least a National scale – our Members are now having a huge impact that is a benefit to all motorists. We now have the momentum behind us, the ball is well and truly rolling so what we need to do now is get everyone to catch the “wave of change” that we have started and ride it with us all the way to the finish. As we have said more times than we can count, when everyone challenges every fine that they receive, then we will bring about some real changes and see some of the strategies that we have had up online since started, on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - finally implemented.

And, to that end, we are making some very big, very positive changes here at ASF to bring about those very changes so, to see what new and exciting things are in store for our Members and Subscribers, please be sure to check out the Some exciting new changes coming to ASF section further down this e-mail.

- Further proof that speed cameras are making our roads more dangerous

Many of you will recall that our last e-mail update included a link to a story from the UK which detailed a town that removed their speed cameras and the accidents in that area decreased - https://uk.cars.yahoo.com/news/swindon-has-uk%E2%80%99s-safest-roads-after-scrapping-speed-cameras-20120326.html

We investigated this story a little more and also found the following articles that show that when speed cameras are removed, there are less accidents:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/news/7931842/Speed-camera-switch-off-sees-fewer-accidents.html and http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1268392/Town-scrapped-speed-cameras-sees-increase-accidents.html

These articles also clearly demonstrate that speed cameras exist only to raise revenue and have absolutely no correlation to “road safety” what-so-ever. Given that fact, why on earth would you voluntarily contribute to this revenue raising grab ever again – especially when our e-book exists to make it so simple to fight back.

If you haven’t yet joined up as an E-Book Member, please go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – straight away and stop handing over your hard earned money when you simply do not need to.

Oh, and if you needed any more proof that speed cameras actually make our roads more dangerous, be sure to read this article - http://www.news.com.au/national/mazda-developing-future-models-to-reduce-the-stress-of-the-speed-camera/story-fncynjr2-1226945569700 - which contains a statement from the boss of Mazda Australia in regards to speed cameras creating distracting drivers instead of “saving lives” as they claim.

We often have people e-mail us who either travel overseas and experience driving conditions there or, conversely, people who live overseas and experience the driving conditions here. Without fail, the feedback is always the same – people are shocked at how ridiculously low the speed tolerances are set here as opposed to how well, and safely, traffic flows in other developed countries, such as the UK, US and Europe, that don’t have such ridiculously low speed limits.

So, the choice is your, by your actions - or “inaction”, as the case may be – you can send a message to the governments of this country that you think it’s okay to keep bringing in more and more cameras and you will gladly keep handing over more and more of your hard earned money or, you can take a stand now and encourage your friends and family to do the same, and you can start fight back against this injustice and sending a loud and clear message that the motorists of Australia will simply not tolerate this rubbish anymore. Remember, either way, actions always speak louder than words.

You can start taking action right now by signing our on-line petition to have all speed and red light cameras removed from service - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html

And then, you can read the section below to see what ASF is doing to expand their region of influence to bring about some real changes to the corrupt revenue raising that currently exists in this fine country – pun intended!

- Some exciting new changes coming to ASF

Many of you will also recall our last e-mail update, in which we mentioned, in passing, that a washed up liar for hire (lawyer) had been bad mouthing us again and breaching our copyright laws. Well, within 24 hours of sending out that e-mail, we got the following response from one of our Members:

Hi Guys,

In response to your washed up lawyer topic, I used Shaun(sic) Hardy and lost my licence for 12 months, copped $1,000 fine with 8 demerit points.

Whilst being out of work on the dole because of no licence, I used your system to defend a 1 demerit point fine and won.

Keep up the good work.

Ross B – Vic.

So, whilst neither we, nor our Members and Subscribers are concerned about Hardy’s pathetic attempts to discredit us or steer people away from us, he has actually given us the kick up the butt that we have needed for a while now to grow, update and expand our services so that we can that we can blow our numbers of 7 years, 22,000 Members and Subscribers and 4,500 Facebook Members out of the water!

Accordingly, we are now working very closely with some new IT guys as well as a new marketing group and, we have a number of other people from other rights-based groups coming on board very soon as well.

What this means to you is that, very soon, the topics that we cover will expand, our website and e-book are going to be updated and we are going to be implementing a number of new developments and ideas that we are confident will be of benefit to all our Members and Subscribers.

We can’t say too much now but, rest assured, things will be starting to change from the moment you read this e-mail. On that point, we will be going through a bit of a transition stage with servers, websites and the like so we would ask you to all be a little bit patient with us during these changes.

We know, for example, that there was an issue with our e-mail server last week and a number of e-mails bounced back so, if you sent us an e-mail and didn’t get a response, please let us know and we will get back to you ASAP. The E-Book Pro server that is currently in use is in the midst of being updated and upgraded so that our e-book will work equally well on PCs and Macs in the future also, but please keep in mind that we still always recommend the hard copy version over the digital one for anyone who hasn’t yet joined up - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

Remember too that your E-Book Membership is so much more than just the e-book itself, it also includes on-going e-mail support, regular e-mail updates, such as this, as well as free e-book updates for life – which we are working on right now.

So, suffice to say that Sean Hardy and his pathetic website will soon be completely useless to anyone who has been tempted to waste their time visiting it – his information is years out of date and our new website and e-book will include the absolute latest information and strategies for defeating all unjust and unlawful traffic fines. We take this opportunity to welcome everyone who has been researching him in the background for us to come forward now, as well as those who are passionate about bringing this liar for hire to justice.

At the end of the day though, these exciting new developments may have still been a while off if it wasn’t for his on-going stupid games but, now it’s time to move onwards and upwards for the benefit of all Aussie motorists.  Be sure to keep an eye out for future e-mail updates to stay on top of new developments as we roll them out – there will be quite a few in coming weeks so get ready for some very exciting changes and expansion.

And, whilst a lot of things are changing here at ASF, some things never change, such as the regular feedback, support and stories of success that we receive each and every week now from our Members. The latest ones are covered in the section below.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Once again, we have received a number of new testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information to fight back against their fines and win. Our first is a very brief e-mail from a Member who successfully defeated a red light camera fine in court.

Hi,

On Friday, at the Bacchus Marsh Magistrate Court, we had success with a red light camera. The info from the ebook worked great.

Before the case was heard, the prosecutor tried to get us to plea guilty saying that it could be a lesser fine but we refused and went on to win the case.

That is four out of four now.

Thanks,

 

John – Vic.

We also received a somewhat more detailed e-mail from a Member who successfully challenged a parking ticket and has advice for all Aussie motorists when they receive a fine.

Hello,

I’m  happy for you to use this as a testimonial. As an overview:

1. the initial ticket was wrong and that it was changed on the second one

2. It showed actions of changing the ticket type to a general fine from a specific one.  

3. I stated the act and compliance requirements of tickets / actions public promise to have integrity and conduct of fining

4. The fine they initially had the car for was a deccw spot. This in not a sign I have ever seen not was it in the rta road book of signs. Have deducted its a commercial spot.

5. I pointed out the truth - low public spots/ ( high commercial spots: against public demand and needs. Favouring not the public but revenue raising. - I had a ticket in my window. The car was standing not stopping - as all locals do there to check out the surf

6. The car was parked in no stopping not deccw spot & their photos showed this. 

7. I was polite and friendly and so were they. So are the parks people I know to say hi to when surfing most days. I also pointed out the tasks of the parks people was facilities based as was their job description and so a fine given by a parks person according to the act and their job description made it look like they were not legally in the fines act able to legitimately give parking tickets. I also don't think parks people get into parks to give tickets - I would say its a state govt revenue push. Even they would not like to do and I do hope for their sake they do not have parking fine quotas as it will take them away from the value of their role and looking after the park

8. I pointed out quite frequently spots are taken by the NSW parks that are public spots - yet there is a 10% parking access for them vs public. Ie 4-5 spots vs 40 public and 1/3 taken by another large commercial dives spot. ( clearly a high revenue car park for NSW parks)

9. I asked the NSW parks to disclose their parking fine obligations and provide the job description and fine targets - as the jd they had sent me did not include this requirement. Yet the ticket said it was done by a parks person!

10. They changed the fine to a general one but they did not change it to the fine amount required under the act for where it was standing not stopping. Ie fine 81 first and second notice. Yet the car was standing in a no stopping - which I think is a 241 fine. So the photo they had showed on their I was in the no stopping not the deccw park spot and initial fine penalty & offence. I actually don't know if deccw is a legal no parking spot.

11. I showed photos showing the sdro photos on the web angle were misleading

12. I promised photos from the day I took and the actual fine / which showed the fine and penalty was incorrect. 

13. I pointed out that there was a resource deficit of public car parking vs commercial and that there were over 10 spots that were heavily signed with no standing - even though there was no safety requirement for there to be a no standing sign. So clearly a revenue push of interest not public or safey.  

Thoughts:

Check the fine type and photo are the same and correct for both notices.

Ask them first

Advise of the costs going to court / ie 3000 and a waste of public money.

Ask them to own - be accountable responsible and transparent for changes. They make that look and are not in line with the aps values and ethics code of public employees and ask that the integrity requirement of the act be respected.

At the end if the day in fairness there was so many variables and a logical review occurred and outcome.

Have a nice day.

Kind regards,

 

Camila - NSW

Stay safe out there,


25 May, 2014
We're really starting to make an impact now - let's keep going!

Well, it’s been another very busy and productive couple of weeks here at the ASF offices and, once again, we have a lot of exciting news to share with you – not least of which is the very positive and powerful impact that our Members are now having on “the system”.

So, without further ado, let’s get straight into this week’s important e-mail update ….

- The impact ASF is now making around the country

They say you haven’t really “made it” until you have some critics who are taking notice of you. Well, if that’s the case, then we’ve finally hit the big time! A number of Members have e-mailed us over the past few months from different states around the country and it looks like agencies have been forced to change their standard response letters to people simply as a result of the overwhelming number of Members that are now successfully using our information to challenge their unjust and unlawful fines.

This is incredible news and everyone who has taken the time to send in one of our letters, or even to challenge their fines in some other way, is to be commended for this amazing outcome. Quite simply, these agencies would not be sending out specific responses to our letters if they weren’t making a big impact.

And, not only that, but one of the new response letters that we have seen circulating in  Victoria is actually brilliant for all our Members because it proves one of our biggest points that we’ve been making over the past 7 years! A letter that we have seen actually acknowledges the existence of the Breedon v Kongras case – which is the WA Fisheries case that we refer to in our e-book –and they admit that it doesn’t match up with a Supreme Court case in Victoria – that, in and of itself, establishes “reasonable doubt” which is all that is required to have a case dismissed. After all, if two Supreme Courts can’t even agree on what the law is then how can a Magistrate possibly rule against you!

On top of that, we have also had feedback that a sad, washed up “liar for hire” (lawyer) is up to his old tricks again but, this time, he is clearly so frustrated by the impact that we are having – or those who are backing him financially are – that he has now gone to the extraordinary lengths of blatantly breaching our copyright terms and conditions. Please refer to our FAQ page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/FAQs.html - for further details on this unscrupulous, immoral and unethical individual’s pathetically dismal attempts to discredit us and our responses to his BS – if you can be bothered.

Please note that we urge anyone who has been tempted to download a “free” copy of our e-book that any such copies are out of date, do not contain the most up-to-date Resource letters and do not come with the on-going e-mail support that many of our Members find is as valuable as the e-book itself – after all, as comprehensive as our e-book is, people still have questions and still appreciate on-going support and assistance, which we only offer to fully paid E-Book Members - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html  At the end of the day, $67 is a very minimal cost considering everything we provide and it’s really not worth the risk of breaching copyright laws for such a small amount – as certain people are about to find out.

- Further proof that what we cover in our e-book is absolutely accurate

Whilst we obviously cover a wide range of topics, strategies and defences against unjust and unlawful fines in our e-book, one of the arguments that most of our Members are interested in is in regard to the purported “accuracy” of speed detection devices.

Anyone who has a copy of our e-book – “Speed Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” – would be aware that this a major topic that we address in a number of different ways – the inherent flaws and inaccuracies of the devices themselves, problems with the way the devices are used and the fact that no speed detection device in Australia has currently been certified or tested to comply with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act – which every device that is used for  any legal purpose must be. We provide excerpts from the actual manufacturers training manuals as well as actual case precedents to verify all the points we raise.

In addition to that, we recently reported on this case - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa/a/22387940/speed-gun-accuracy-doubts/ - where a motorist in WA successfully used these arguments to not only defeat his own fine but to introduce serious doubt as to the so-called “accuracy” of these speed detection devices.

Well, further research has found some other very interesting independent testing which conclusively proves that readings from these devices most assuredly cannot be relied on to be 100% accurate. The first was some testing done in the UK - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVdjZE2YhLE – which details how errors can easily occur and how the systems that are supposed to either eliminate these errors or notify police when those errors have occurred do not work!

And here are a couple of other videos that show how easy it is for the police to deliberately “create” false readings with these devices and then book you - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XinL5Dv_i3w and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyMjtq3IodU&feature=related

And yes, the “sweep error” or “cosine effect” that they refer to is all covered in our e-book, as is the information that you need to use to successfully defend against an incorrect, unjust or unlawful speeding fine. So, if you’re not yet an E-Book Member, then please go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – to learn about this, plus a ton of other useful information and strategies that you can use to fight back for your rights and save your hard earned money.

- Roads become safer after speed cameras are removed

And here’s another fantastic story out of the UK - https://uk.cars.yahoo.com/news/swindon-has-uk%E2%80%99s-safest-roads-after-scrapping-speed-cameras-20120326.html – that shows that Swindon, a town in Wiltshire, now has the lowest rate of accidents in the entire country, after switching off their speed cameras.

So, not only is all the government propaganda that “Speed Camera Save Lives” absolute rubbish but, in fact, the complete opposite that is true – the roads are safer when the cameras are removed!

Please, if you haven’t yet done so, we would urge you to sign our on-line petition - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - to have all speed and red light cameras removed from service in Australia – and encourage your friends and family to do the same – so that we can truly make our roads safer for everyone.

- More corruption exposed and more cameras removed

Following on from the unethical and unscrupulous actions by certain members of the legal profession that we detailed in our first section, we are happy to expose even further corruption that has now come to light regarding traffic fines.

This story, out of the US - http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/may/16/editorial-kickback-cameras/ - shows that red light cameras, that were introduced purely to raise revenue – and have been proven to provide no safety benefits what-so-ever – were brought about by other unscrupulous and corrupt people, simply wanting to make money for themselves from innocent motorists.

We are very happy to report that Redflex – the Australian company that produces these useless and insidious devices - is set to lose $9 million in revenue over the next 6 months. Let’s just hope that they, and their corrupt cronies over here in Australia, don’t try and recoup those losses from unsuspecting Aussie motorists!

It is also great to see these corrupt officials having their scare tactics reversed and put back on them – threatening motorists with “further action” if they don’t just blindly “pay up” for fines that were unjust and unlawful in the first place has now been transformed into these agencies being threatened to remove these ridiculous cameras from service or go to jail – we love it!

Remember, all traffic fines – and the “traffic lawyers” that are all part of the same corrupt system - exist purely to raise revenue. Once the money stops rolling in then they will be forced to actually do an honest day’s work and actually look at implementing some strategies that really do make our roads safer and more enjoyable for all motorists, such as the ones that we detail on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html

- More speed cameras being used contrary to guidelines

And, we’re sure it will come as no surprise to motorists reading this newsletter but the very same type of corruption goes on right here in our very backyard in Australia.

A number of Members sent us this story from South Australia - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/none-of-adelaides-top-10-speed-camera-locations-in-2014-are-on-the-states-black-spot-program/story-fni6uo1m-1226909582332 - which shows that none of Adelaide’s top 10 speed cameras are being used in known black spot areas.

Again, any of you who have our e-book will know that there are certain guidelines that most be followed when using speed detection devices and, one of those is that they must be set up in known black spot areas.

The results of the on-line vote that pops up on that article are also very telling – when we last checked, it showed that almost 78% of people believed that speed cameras existed purely to raise revenue. Our question is, if 78% of people believe that speeding fines are issued just to raise revenue and our e-book shows you, step-by-step, exactly how to fight unjust and unlawful speeding fines then why aren’t 78% of the population – at a minimum – fighting their fines!!!

And here’s another similar article – also out of Adelaide - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/notsocandid-camera-as-crash-data-withheld-on-locations-of-adelaides-new-speed-cameras/story-fni6uo1m-1226913861501 - that again cements that fact that speed cameras are only used to raise revenue and the very people that we elected to do Our Will are lying to us, deceiving us and withholding information from us.

When are you going to stand up and take action for yourself, for your children and for your children’s children!

- Motorist has $1,000 fine quashed 

And the hits against “the system” just keep on coming this week. We also received the following media article from one of our Members in SA, which details how a woman successfully challenged an unjust and unlawful “unregistered and uninsured vehicle” fine. You can read the full details here - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/online-vehicle-registration-to-be-reviewed-after-motorist-chantel-merrett-has-1000-fine-quashed/story-fni6uo1m-1226919506825

It is just so fantastic to read all of these stories of people fighting back, standing up for their rights and challenging injustices at all levels. We are obviously a little bit biased and we firmly believe that our e-book will place you in the best possible standing to successfully challenge any fines you receive but the key is to simply fight back and challenge everything – whether you use our information or not.

As we have said time and time again, until we’re almost blue in the face, the key is to get everyone to challenge every fine they get – however they choose to challenge it (except wasting money on a lawyer – we can never condone that!) and whatever strategies they choose to use, just challenge – and that will bring “the system” to a grinding halt very quickly.

You can read more stories of success and find out how other Members have successfully used our information to challenge their unjust and unlawful fines in the Latest Testimonials and Feedback section below

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Once again, we have received a number of new testimonials form Members who have successfully used our information to fight back against their fines and win. Our first is a detailed e-mail form a Member who successfully defeated a speeding fines using the very information about “cosine error” that we covered near the start of this e-mail update.

Hi Team,

Thank you for your assistance.

I finally had a win in the local court today. It has been a long and daunting saga ... but WE WON!

The saga:

1.      I was given a speeding ticket in a school zone on 17 April 2013. I pleaded my innocence to the officer but he wasn’t interested.

2.      I sent in the 3 letters and the request for court as per instructions. No reply.

3.      Address: I live outside of town with no postal delivery so use a PO Box for mail. Thus 2 addresses – residential and postal. The police and the courts insist on using residential addresses and not postal addresses – guess what – I didn’t receive any of their notices.

4.      On returning from a 2 month overseas holiday I found that my license had a bunch of demerit points and they were about to cancel it for non payment. WHAT!

5.      I had to attend the courthouse and request a hearing to set the previous hearing aside. Then attend court to set aside the previous decision made in my absence. Attend court on 2 more occasions to set a trial date and now finally the actual trial 13 months later. 

I quoted from the operators manual several times while questioning the officers and this surprised them and set him back. Now when I asked about the “cosine effect” caused by the angle of the device to my direction of travel, both officers became confused and unsure of what the manual says and gave inconsistent answers. (Note: I teach maths and who remembers their Trigonometry from school? – not many!) Gotcha! 

Note: All you need is inconsistent answers to win. (Cosine effect will give a false LOW reading. Don’t go there.) Introduce the Cosine Error and leave it at that – an error and confusion from the officers. Stress the ERROR point in your conclusion.

6.      The magistrate went to great lengths to explain his decision even though it was ½ hour past his lunch time. Case was not proven by the prosecution because of the confusion over the Cosine Error.

7.      Costs were awarded to me including my ASF subscription. Thank you! But not my lost income from 4 court attendances – I needed to have documentation to prove this.

A good win and it took up so much of their time!

Ken – W.A.

And here’s another from a Member who successfully defeated a so-called “unbeatable” speed camera fine.

Hi ASF,

If I never had your e-book from the start I would been paying the infringement back in June 2013.

The Prosecutor talked to me prior to the Magistrate coming into court and said that he was only entering the evidence of the camera and that he would abide by the Magistrates decision no matter what the outcome. He told me that I had 3 choices and that I had time to think about it before my case came up. I thought about it and when it was my time I pleaded "guilty".

The Magistrate asked why I was speeding I told her that I did not believe that I was as I was doing the same speed going the other way earlier and had not been fined and that my bosses told me to take my time and when you get told to take your time you do it. She then looked at the Prosecutor and he left it to her to decide and would be happy with her decision. She looked at my record and then asked how long I had been driving and I told her and then she dismissed the case and told me that I was FREE to go.

I told a friend who is a retired JP and he said that I was extremely lucky to be told that I was "free to go" as normally you have to pay something.

Bye,

Kelvin E.

And finally, here’s a short and simple one from a Member in the UK who sent in just one letter and had his fine withdrawn.

Hi,

Many thanks for your advice, worked like a charm.  After requesting to have my infringement heard in court I just had a letter in the post today stating no further action to be taken.  Keep up the good work, I can't believe how corrupt the traffic system is in Australia, I thought the UK was bad, but it is nothing like you have over there.

Thanks

Alan – U.K.

The latest revenue raising tactics - you have been warned!

- Intro

Well, as predicted, we have had a number of motorists e-mail us since the Easter and ANZAC day holidays, explaining how they received unjust and unlawful fines as part of the various governments' on-going revenue raising tactics during that period.

Unfortunately, despite our continuing efforts to encourage people to challenge their fines, the message just doesn't seem to be getting through. Instead, these agencies are getting the message, loud and clear - from apathetic Aussie motorists, that incorrectly believe  that it is all "too hard" to fight back against their fines - that motorists will, eventually, just "give up and pay up" and therefore, their bullying and propaganda tactics are working and so they have decided to expand on these even further.

We urge you to read the following articles so you can see, first hand, just how bad things are getting. Please understand that the only reason that things have become this bad is because motorists that came before us made a decision not to fight back and the governments quickly realised that they could get away with imposing whatever unjust and unlawful "taxes" that they wanted to on unsuspecting and/or apathetic motorists.

Just stop and think for a moment how bad things will be in another 5 years if you don't stand up for your rights and fight back against this insanity and injustice now - then stop and think of how bad it will be when your children and your children’s children start driving!

We can, and do, give you everything you need to know to learn about your rights. We then give you all the support and encouragement in the world to empower and inspire you to stand up for those rights but the only person that can actually "take action" and put an end to this madness is you!

So, if you want to know why right now is the absolute best time to learn about your rights and how to stand up for them, please read on ...

- The latest bullying tactics from Western Australia

We have reported recently on a growing number of revenue raising strategies being implemented in WA and things have just escalated even further - they are now sending people text messages in an effort to get them to just blindly "pay up", despite those fines being completely illegal and void! You can see the full story here - https://au.news.yahoo.com/video/watch/23131336/text-messages-warn-of-fines/

Be sure to note the blatant propaganda used to deceive people throughout this video, specifically, the opening line which talks about West Australian motorists "owing a debt" and that the government "wants the money back" - it is not the government's money and it never was so how do they get away with claiming it "back"! Later, they talk about "recouping $277 million", again, it is not their money so there is nothing to "recoup".

Remember, pursuant to Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act, "All fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void" - these fines have never been to court, no-one has been "convicted" of anything and therefore, these claimed "debts" are not actually valid debts at all and the Sheriff's Office has absolutely no lawful right to make any claim on those purported debts and certainly has no lawful right to clamp anyone's cars or seize anyone's property.

Please be sure to read our e-book - "Speeding fines, What You REALLY Need to Know" - thoroughly so that you understand these legal arguments and why what these agencies are doing is completely illegal, as well as informing yourself about what you can do to protect yourself against these insane, bullying tactics! If you don't yet have a copy of our e-book, then please go to our E-Book Membership's page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - and join up now.

- More cameras coming to SA on the back of increased fine revenue

The title of this article really says it all and sums up everything we explained in the Intro section of this e-mail - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/traffic-fine-revenue-in-south-australia-up-13-million-and-there-are-more-cameras-coming/story-fni6uo1m-1226890722025   The SA government has clearly seen how much money they can make with these illegal devices and so they are bringing in more!


Now, this article refers to some fictitious "research" that they say "shows that cameras have a positive effect on driver behaviour by reducing the incidence of excessive speed" but where exactly is this research - they certainly don't provide a link to any such "research" and all the reports and studies from the rest of the world show that is simply not true! And, even if it was, it certainly has nothing to do with actually reducing accidents which is ultimately, what they are “supposed” to be about.

In fact, this article - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-01-01/national-road-tolls-2013/5181358 - specifically shows that despite a significant increase in the number of fines that were issued in SA last year - as well as a significant increase in the amount of revenue raised from fines - which they incorrectly claim has had a "positive effect on driver behaviour" and has "reduced the incidence of excessive speed" - the road toll actually increased last year in SA!!!

Speed cameras do not save lives - by their construct and the way that they work, it is simply impossible for them to do so. How can you possibly save someone's life by sending them a fine in the mail 3 to 4 weeks after the event? They exist purely to raise revenue for the governments that install them - period.

And, this article - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/new-fines-enforcement-unit-has-already-reaped-in-15m-for-sa-government/story-fni6uo1m-1226891150163 - which proudly boasts how much money a new "enforcement unit" in SA has raised, is further proof of that fact.

So, the only question you need to ask yourself is, are you going to continue contributing to this blatant revenue raising or are you going to stand up for yourself - and encourage others to do the same - and start fighting back?

Now, on the subject of fighting back, a few of our Members sent us this article - http://www.news.com.au/national/south-australia/south-australia-has-lost-250000-in-revenue-after-vandal-went-on-speed-camera-wrecking-spree/story-fnii5yv4-1226881559077 - recently as well. Now, whilst we certainly do not condone physically attacking speed cameras, we can definitely understand why motorists have become that disillusioned with the current system and have been driven to taking such drastic actions.

Unfortunately, we have heard that the individual, who has been accused - not proven, mind you - to have committed this "shocking" act of complete and utter frustration, has been hounded no end by the police. One has to ask themselves why they would harass this man to the lengths that they have for simply doing what most motorists, and many police as well, would like to have done themselves. After all, no-one else knew that the cameras weren't working at the time and there are no reports of any accidents at or near those sites so, once again, the only issue is the amount of revenue that the government missed out on, nothing else.

We trust that the government gets the message, loud and clear, from this motorist's actions, that the general motoring public of this country no longer believes the lies and propaganda that they are being fed and they will take action if the government doesn't stand up and take notice of the people that voted them into power to do their bidding. Again, we urge motorists to fight back with their wallets and our e-book rather than weapons - at least for now.

- Some strategies that we do actually agree with

Now, clearly we don't agree with the blatant revenue raising that currently exists in most States but that not to say that we don't agree with fining or punishing motorists at all - it just has to be for things that do actually cause accidents, not rubbish that they merely "claim" does.

We thoroughly support a new initiative that has just been launched in Victoria which would see motorists who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol fined up to $40,000! You can read all about this new strategy here - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/national/a/23113444/new-vic-offence-for-drug-drunk-drivers/

This is an extremely pro-active stance against two extremely dangerous practices that have been proven, time and time again, to actually cause accidents. By impounding people's vehicles at the time that they are driving dangerously - under the influence of drugs or alcohol – it will actually save lives, something that a speed or red light camera can never do!

Furthermore, the prospect of such massive fines will, hopefully, be a deterrent to drivers making the choice to engage in either of these known, dangerous activities and, again, by stopping dangerous or alcohol/drug affected drivers before they actually take to the roads will, again, definitely save lives.

We thoroughly support this Victorian government initiative and we challenge the relevant government personnel to read over our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - and remove the majority of ridiculous, purported "road safety" initiatives and strategies that they currently have in place - that exist purely to raise revenue - and, instead, introduce some of the other truly life saving strategies that we detail on that page.

Please understand that we are the first people to complain when a new revenue raising strategy is implemented and we urge people to write and complain to their local ministers and object to any new initiatives or plans along those lines. However, we also believe that it is equally important to write and congratulate the government when they implement something positive and beneficial, such as the initiative outlined above. Accordingly, please spare a few moments to do just that and, if a few thousand people did that, and included a link to our Vision for the Future page, you never know, the government may actually take a few more positive steps and cease a few of the negative ones - fingers crossed.

And, just to prove that we are not biased and that we're happy to support the government in any strategies that will actually improve road safety, we would also urge you to note this article - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/latest/a/23074467/drivers-flout-school-limit/ - from WA which we also approve of - as long as the speeds are being measured with properly approved and tested devices. As always, we encourage drivers to slow down in school zones and other areas with high concentrations of pedestrians.

Change your clocks and change your thinking - it's time to educate yourselves!

- Intro

People around much of the country changed their clocks this morning as Daylight Savings ended and we believe that this is as good a time as any to move your thinking forwards and to start really educating yourselves about your rights and responsibilities.

Whilst our e-book and our website exist to help people to successfully challenge their unjust and unlawful fines, the primary purpose of our existence is to inform and educate people – beating your traffic fines is really just a bonus when compared to the freedom and power you will feel when you truly comprehend and learn how to stand up for your rights.

So, on that basis, we would like you to think about the points we cover in this week’s e-mail update very carefully because if we can raise people’s consciousness and awareness of their rights on a large scale, then changing “the system”, making our roads truly safer and more enjoyable for all motorists and introducing some of the truly life saving strategies that we detail on our Vision for the Future page -    http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - will be a much simpler task.

As always, please feel free to pass this e-mail on and/or share it with people on your contact list, being sure to remove the un-subscribe link at the very bottom so that you are not accidentally taken off our database by someone not as open-minded and forward thinking as yourself.

And yes, we know it’s long again this week but we’re confident that you will appreciate the detailed information that we cover and how every motorist can use it to successfully challenge their fines.

- Serious problems in Western Australia

We received a couple of articles from WA this week that clearly highlight the issues that we are all  facing, no matter what State or Territory we live in.

The first is an article about the increased range of double demerit point fines with the Easter and Anzac day long weekends looming - http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/22350108/drivers-face-more-double-demerit-fines/ Now, let us clearly state, from the outset, that we definitely agree that running a red light and/or using your mobile phone whilst driving are both extremely dangerous activities that should be stopped. What we have concerns about, as always, is the way that they are going about it and, also, the fact that they currently attach double demerit points to “offences” such as failing to wear and seat belt and speeding, neither of which have anything to do with road safety.

“Speed”, as we have explained many times, is only “a” factor in about 5% of accidents and this is backed up by the Crash Statistics data that we have on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html Clearly, failing to wear a seatbelt is not going to affect anyone other than yourself in the even that you have an accident.

So, how do they justify applying double demerit points for these so-called “offences”, which have little or no likelihood of ever affecting anyone else, as opposed to running a red light or using a mobile phone whilst driving, which will almost certainly negatively impact someone else – it just doesn’t make sense and it goes to show how inconsistent and how ineffective the current system is.

Perhaps, as we have said for years now, if they increased the artificially deflated speed limits that currently exist, people would no longer be so bored driving that they would even consider trying to use their phone at the same time because they would be 100% focused on the task of driving, which is, ultimately, what we want to see and is also what will ultimately make our roads safer for all motorists.

This article clearly states that, despite these double demerit point “threats”, the road toll in WA is still the worst in the country so this “strategy” is clearly not working. As we have said before, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result!

Now, what makes all of this even worse is that there is now even further doubt as to the accuracy of the speed detection devices that they use to claim that you are “speeding” and to fine you and steal your demerit points, as this article shows - http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa/a/22387940/speed-gun-accuracy-doubts/

Please note the 3rd paragraph of this article which outlines the fact that an expert proved that the motorist in question was traveling at 39km/h less than what the police claimed!

So, all those brainless morons out there that e-mail us every month or so and say “If you don’t speed then you won’t get fined” or “That guy was going way over the limit so you can’t claim that was just an error” are flat out wrong!!!

The last couple of paragraphs are of paramount importance – “At the end of the day, I have been treated as guilty until proven innocent” and “This is not a case of reasonable doubt – we have proved that the reading was wrong”. This is why the Imperial Acts Application Act and the Commonwealth Constitution are vital and why we must all use them when challenging our fines. Please see the The Commonwealth Constitution and how it applies to traffic fines section below for further details on this point.

- It is just as bad in Canberra too

Again, we have two very powerful and conflicting articles out of Canberra this week that demonstrate that they are facing very similar problems there too – the reality is that motorists in every State and Territory are facing exactly the same issues, it’s just that the media aren’t always reporting on them.

The first story details how just one unjust and unlawful speed camera in Canberra has collected $1.54 million in from motorists in the past year - http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/speed-camera-nets-154m-and-6408-drivers-in-a-year-data-20140321-35941.html

The article, as usual, explains how so many drivers were caught “speeding”– in this case, 6408 – yet fails to note a single accident, despite all of those drivers supposedly “driving dangerously’ by exceeding some arbitrarily set speed limit.

The fact is, that is actually only one camera. The article goes onto state that the total number of drivers caught “driving dangerously” by purportedly exceeding the limit – which our section above just proved isn’t necessarily the case at all – is 47,900 and again, not a single mention of any accidents despite their on-going propaganda that “Speed Kills”, “Every K Over is a Killer” etc.

The simple fact is that these cameras rake in an enormous amount of revenue for the government and that is the only reason they are there. It’s no wonder that an independent audit into those cameras was damning, as this article explains - http://www.smh.com.au/comment/ct-editorial/caution-sign-on-speed-cameras-for-act-government-20140321-3594d.html

Please note the 3 fundamental questions that the ACT Auditor-General considered when evaluating these cameras: are the cameras effective at reducing speed, are they reliable, and is their number and placement beyond reproach? And, the simple answer to all three questions was a resounding “No”!

So, there you have it, yet another independent audit into speed cameras which shows they are not effective at slowing motorists down, they cannot be proven to be accurate and, yet another recommendation that they be switched off.

Now, we understand that the majority of people reading these regular e-mails updates “get it” but when is the rest of the Australian motoring public going to stop buying into the government BS and start understanding these simple concepts and start fighting back?

Please, when you challenge your next fine, if the matter proceeds to court – because one of the many other strategies detailed in our e-book didn’t achieved the desired result straight away – then be sure to raise the article in the section above about the WA speed detection devices being proven to be inaccurate and ask the Prosecutor how he can prove, beyond a reasonable doubt – which that article, in and of itself establishes – that the device used in your case could not have also been just as inaccurate.

Then, be sure to raise this article and the report from the Auditor-General and ask the Magistrate if he truly believes that he is doing the right thing presiding over speeding infringements when independent reports show that they do nothing but raise revenue for a fiscally incompetent government. Challenge them to explain why they became Magistrates in the first place – was it to see “justice” done or are they happy just being glorified debt collection agents for the government. Sure, they may be few and far between but we’re hopeful that there are still a few Magistrates out there that have at least a little bit of a conscience left and by presenting them with these facts, you give them the opportunity to “do the right thing”.

This is, of course, all in addition to the many arguments and strategies that are detailed in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” – that should be the basis of any formal challenge to each and every unjust and unlawful traffic fine you receive. If you haven’t yet got a copy, please be sure to go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and join up now.

- And now the truth from the rest of the world

So, keeping in mind what is happening in our own back yard – please refer back to the two sections above – we would like to show you what is going on in the rest of the world and what we really can achieve here if we fight back collectively.

First and foremost is the recent 2 year study from Denmark that clearly shows that higher speed limits are safer - http://www.itsinternational.com/sections/general/news/danish-study-shows-higher-speed-limits-are-safer/ - this, of course, is something that we have been saying for years and, as this article goes onto state, is something that has been proven a number of times in places like the USA and the UK as well.

Again, in case you missed the connection – independent audits here is Australia prove that speed cameras do not cause people to slow down and speed cameras do not reduce road fatalities and now, here is, yet another, international report that proves, over a 2 year period, that despite police being “skeptical”, increasing the speed limit has been proven to cause less accidents.

We trust that this is clear enough for anyone who thinks of ever e-mailing us again about the “benefits” of speed cameras or questioning why we do what we do!!!

And, in the US, they have gone even further than that. As this articles shows - http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/43/4372.asp - 16 states in the US have banned the use of speed and red light cameras because they have been proven, time and time again to be illegal and ineffective but now, South Dakota, has gone above and beyond that and ordered that their residents are immune to speed and red light camera fines issued by other states, even if those states allow the use of those devices!

Motorists of Australia, if the people in South Dakota can get a huge ruling like that then surely we can use “people power” to have these insidious devices turned off here!

Please see the next section to understand that we do have the power to do that here and we must collectively exercise that power.

- The Commonwealth Constitution and how it applies to traffic fines

Our e-book covers, in detail, how and why the Commonwealth Constitution applies, in a number of different ways, to unjust and unlawful traffic fines. This, of course, is one of the fundamental reasons why our e-book and our information applies equally to all States. However, over the past few years, we have had feedback from a number of Members that certain Magistrates have incredibly suggested that “The Constitution doesn’t apply in this court.”

Now, we have to admit to being in utter disbelief when we first heard this but, after hearing the same thing from a number of different people, we became concerned. Now, thankfully, most Magistrates are not that completely corrupt that they would ever consider uttering such a thing but, a few are and here is how to get around that in the unlikely event you are ever faced with it.

Firstly, we need  to look at the opening line of the “Act to Constitute the Commonwealth of Australia”, which you can find here - http://www.aph.gov.au/About_Parliament/Senate/Powers_practice_n_procedures/Constitution/preamble - and you will see that it is “We, The People”, that unite and create the Commonwealth of Australia and give power to everything that comes under it.

It is vital that you understand this because, without “Us – We, The People” the governments have no power! The governments are there to do Our bidding, to enact laws for Us and the court are for Us to use to resolve disputes – it is important to remind the relevant people of these facts from time to time.

If a Magistrate, or anyone else, ever suggests that the Commonwealth Constitution “doesn’t apply” then please direct them to covering clause 5 - http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/coaca430/s5.html - which clearly states that the Constitution “shall be binding on the courts, judges, and people of every State and of every part of the Commonwealth”.

So, how does this apply to traffic fines? Well, in the first instance, we would argue that Section 92 applies - http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/coaca430/s92.html - because it addresses the fact that “intercourse among the States, whether by means of internal carriage or ocean navigation, shall be absolutely free” – they cannot impose fines because they are simply a form of “tax” or “duty” that is unConstitutional. Again, this is explained in greater detail in our e-book.

In addition to that, Section 109 - http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/coaca430/s109.html - addresses the point about it being impossible for State laws to be inconsistent laws of the Commonwealth. So, for example, when the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth) dictates – specifically Section 10 - http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/nma1960222/s10.html - that a device that is used for “any legal purpose” it must comply and then State statutes suggest that is not the case, the Commonwealth legislation prevails.

Also, when the Imperial Acts Application Act – specifically Section 8, Sub-section 12 – http://www.clrg.info/fines-are-unlawful/ - dictates that all fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void then any purported anti-hoon legislation that seeks that you forfeit your car or any Infringements Act or Expiation of Offences Act or anything similar – that seeks to authorize clamping of  your car, suspension of your registration of your drivers licence or registration etc. before the matter has been determined by a court of competent jurisdiction – is equally invalid, illegal, void and un-enforceable. Again, all of this is explained in much greater detail in our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

The simple fact is that the Commonwealth Constitution most assuredly does apply in every court and every Judge and Magistrate is bound by it. If anyone ever suggests otherwise, please point out the above facts and, if they attempt to ignore them, explain to them that if they continue, you will pursue them for attempting to pervert the course of justice!

- Reports about Santos Bonacci

A number of people have sent us e-mails about Santos Bonacci and the media reports from Today Tonight and the You Tube videos of his fight against over $100,000 worth of unjust and unlawful toll fines.

We have a couple of clear points that we would like to make on this topic. Firstly, we extended an invitation to Santos through our network for him to contact us so that we could assist him – to date, Santos has not approached us in any way regarding that offer.

Secondly, we agree with many of the points that Santos raises in some of his “interviews” - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ysESwj1w10 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN1iKfSfihw but we have to say that we have some concerns about the ways in which he presents that information.

We thought very long and hard about what to include in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” – and what not to include before we released it. We knew that there was a ton of information out there but, if you had never had access to it before then trying to get your head around all of it from scratch was going to be impossible. Instead, we chose to start with the basics, to stick to information that people could get their heads around, understand, research for themselves and verify easily and then, hopefully, put into practice when challenging their own fines.

Now, again, we state that the majority of what Santos “preaches’ during these “interviews” is absolutely correct but, we are also aware that is going to be way too much for the “average” person to get their head around and therefore, as a result, the may look at him as a “conspiracy theorist” or worse.

To complicate matters more, we have some very serious concerns about the way Santos is conducting his case on all levels. Firstly, he has gone to the media before actually running his case – we believe that this is a huge mistake and is the best way to set yourself up for failure.

Secondly, he has gone into court with loads and loads of people and made it clear to the courts that he is there to set a precedent and “change things”. Now, those of you who actually have any real life experience with how totally and utterly corrupt these institutions are will know that this is simply waving a red flag to a bull and, given his media exposure, they really have no way of accepting his arguments – even though they know they are correct – because it will mean an end to their system and they simply will not let that happen in one fell swoop.

Instead, we suggest that everyone fights back on the merits of their particular case only and then, by everyone collectively doing that, we will slowly but surely bring an end to it quietly, from the inside out, not the other way around.

Finally, we were sent some footage of Santos in court - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STncZ7yE3Iw&feature=youtu.be  and http://youtu.be/vmL83mtv5Kg and again, we have very serious concerns about the way he conducted himself there. The Magistrate gave him more opportunities than we can count to “go away” for a few weeks and consider all of his options yet he consistently refused that opportunity and pushed on with his one and only strategy of discharging the debt with a promissory note.

Again, we re-iterate that this is an advanced strategy and it is technically correct but, getting the court to accept it, especially after telling everyone what he was going to do on national TV before doing it makes it almost impossible for the court to accept it.

Now, we certainly hope that we are wrong and we wish Santos all the very best of luck with his fight but we are very concerned that the court and the media will make an example of him and that will turn many people off challenging their fines.

We believe that Santos should have gone in quietly, with one or two people as witnesses only, and started arguing all of the relevant ASF arguments – s8, ss12 of the IAAA –all fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void, he hasn’t been to court yet and therefore the fines must be revoked and must be referred back to court. This way, you tie up the court system and cost them a ton of money, Also, given the age of many of his fines they wouldn’t have been able to pursue a lot of them anyway.

His points about the flesh and blood human being as opposed to the fictitious, government created ALL CAPS entity were mentioned, but only in passing, and he needed to ask leading questions of the Magistrate to direct him into admitting that the two were different and that the fines only applied to the ALL CAPS entity and not the man himself which he didn’t do.

There are a number of other arguments, that we cover in our e-book, that we believe Santos should have used. Unfortunately, it seems that he has now forgone any opportunity to use them and is really now stuck between a rock and a hard place. We trust, for his sake, and for the sake of motorists around the country that the courts do not deal with him to harshly and that others see where Santos is correct with his principles but not with his arguments and they alter their challenges accordingly.

Please remember that in addition to our extremely comprehensive e-book, our E-Book Membership - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – also provides you with invaluable, on-going e-mail access to answer any and all questions that you may have whilst challenging any of your fines. This can often be as important as the information in the e-book itself.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We have, once again, we have received some very positive feedback from our Members this week who have successfully used our information to challenge and defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

Our first is from a very passionate Member that shows how important it is to know your rights and explains, in part, the amazing feeling of freedom and power that comes from understanding your rights and exercising them at every opportunity.

Hi Guys,

Well, Sunshine Coast Council and Brisbane City Council are very happy to send threatening letters about parking tickets.  But after a court election letter,  with my own additions explaining:  there is currently a class action against council rates, and thanks to them I'll get to add their name to the list & about how the councils are merely corporations not recognised by the Constitution and thus are committing fraud by issuing fines & how I'll be requesting costs, and seeking to prosecute individuals (not the corporation) for mail harrassment, mail fraud, and seeking damages including for all the time I've wasted.

It has happened so many times: they are so quick to do an about face - with a letter full of lies about how the issuing officer is on leave, how I am still guilty,  how this is not a precedent,  and how they are satisfied an offence occurred (how do they know if they were not there?)

I have been intending to write back pointing out all the fraudulent statements and asking them if I can hold them legally accountable for their words. Also making it clear to them  - yes this is a precedent, because you've dropped the fines, and countless precedents already exist, and guess what I will never ever pay for meter parking,  and I will never ever pay one of their fines - and what are they going to do about it? 

I also enjoy showing parking inspectors  the Private Property No Trespass sign on my window, and that even police understand what that means, and if they ever put chalk on my tyres, I'll sue them for trespass, and they should make a note of my rego and let all their mates know. And if it ever happens - I'll hold them responsible and good luck explaining to their wives why they can't afford such and such  this year because they are being sued for issuing illegal fines and hows that for karma.

Hey, if you ever see a pig car parked somewhere - whack a couple of ASF cards under the wiper blades! It's a real buzz! 

I returned to my car in Brisbane to find Mr J Atterton of the City Traffic Corporation

waiting for to fine me for parking 'illegally'.  He must have been on his way to a fancy dress party, given the funny costume.  There were a bunch of bystanders watching (the ASF dashboard notice was clearly visible to everyone) so I threw them all some ASF cards from my wallet before getting into my car. 

Mr Atterton kept asking me to wind my window down so he could hear me - I asked if that was a request or an order?  And did he think about taking off his fat helmet so he could hear?   Every time he asked if I understood him, I said No.   Sent the fines back to him in the mail (I make a point of always doing this as gesture of defiance) with the Letter of Objection. I added at the beginning ' I never have, and I never will, "under-stand" or "stand-under" you.  And, as you are merely an employee of the corporation known as the Bris City Traffic Branch, you and your notices have no authority whatsoever."    

I never write to them using their phoney ego titles - I strip those away and just write Mr so and so.  Well - got a letter back - both fines I received (the other one was for allegedly removing the ID chip from my licence) were dropped straight away!! 

Rachel -Woman with rights - Brisbane QLD

Our second is from another very passionate and active Member who recently won her case in court and now received an order for costs in her favour. Please note the points that she recommends that motorists are aware of when making a costs application themselves.

Hey ASF,

They have fought spitting and fighting against my claim for costs since December but finally today I got $220 awarded.

They had withdrawn a case that went on for years one week before final hearing. They claimed I wasn’t entitled to costs and relied on a ruling I can’t pronounce! I wasn’t sufficiently prepared with the evidence from when I was awarded $1000 to show the precedent (I’m sure some of that was for my time) so they nearly had me…but they conceded they might pay $135 for 4 pre-trial hearings/mentions/appearances – and then the magistrate tried to persuade me to take it.

I said I would like to read my statement first and at the end he added on my direct costs re travel and parking and photocopying (at the “Schedule 1 Criminal case, not represented by a legally qualified person rate” which you can get from the Magistrates court website) and upped it to $220.

My suggestion is to folk – know the Schedule 1 costs, get any precedents you can find where anyone has been paid compensation for their time (and for being a witness compensation for that precedent has already been set and I think many have got costs for being a witness at their own case) and most importantly make sure you note all kms travelled, photocopies made, car parking etc and charge at the Schedule 1 rate (quite high!). Plus be a witness at your own event cos you can get compensation for witness costs!

One more down – 2 to go!

Bridget – S.A.

And finally, we have a short but sweet one that shows if you just blindly “pay up”, that’s it, there’s nothing more you can do. However, if you continue to challenge, you always have a great chance of coming out ahead – even if you plead Guilty - and it costs them more too!

Dear Sir.

I elected to take my case to court. It took nine months for it to come up.

I changed my plea to guilty at the last minute and the magistrate agreed to waive the $350 fine; on the understanding that I accept a 6 month good behaviour bond.

I thought that was a good result! Your publications and DVD’s gave me

a lot of inspiration!

Thank you.

Wayne – Vic.

17 March, 2014
More reasons than ever before to fight your fines!

We have, once again, been inundated with e-mails over the past fortnight and we have a ton of information to get through in this week’s e-mail update, so, let's get straight into it...

- Look how easy it is for errors to occur in the current system

We are constantly reminded that some people still think that the infringement process is fair and just – we hear rubbish like, “If you don’t speed then you won’t get fined” all the time. However, given the number of media articles that have come out over the years that show just how many incorrect fines have been issued – little old ladies that have had their cars tested on dynos that can’t even come close to the claimed speed, speed limited busses being incorrectly fiend for impossible speeds and the like – we can’t see how people still believe this garbage.

On top of that, there have also been an extraordinary number of cases where; speed cameras have clearly been set up incorrectly, limits have been incorrectly entered into the devices, camera operators were using devices in the wrong speed zone, cameras went off for no reason – the list is endless. Then, there are the really big cases where cameras have been turned off for months, even years, on certain highways because they were proven to be inaccurate, and there was also the police officer in Victoria that proved that the reading from an Eastlink cameras was wrong as well.

So, how exactly is it that people honestly believe that “If you don’t speed then you won’t get fined?” It just doesn’t make sense given all the known flaws and errors with these devices – how they fundamentally work and how they are operated.

But, the above is just one part of the overall “infringement process” and the one that we focus on primarily in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” There are, however, other parts of the process that are also prone to mistakes and errors as well.

As this article from New Zealand shows - http://www.news.com.au/world/police-issue-20000-traffic-fines-to-the-wrong-people-because-of-data-error/story-fndir2ev-1226830588389 - infringement notices, or “fines” can be very easily issued to the wrong people.

And, right here in Australia, it’s even worse. VicRoads has admitted to “stuffing up” but - as is becoming par for the course here in the land of the “apathetic sheeple” - rather than taking responsibility for their mistake and assuring us that we will not be negatively impacted by their incompetence, they are instead warning us, the innocent victims of their errors, not to do what we have a common law right to do – travel freely – otherwise, we will get fined - http://news.drive.com.au/drive/motor-news/motorists-urged-off-roads-after-vicroads-licence-bungle-20140205-31zy3.html?utm_source=outbrain&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=outbrain_amplify 

Please, if you know anyone that is still naïve enough to think that “the system” works, you won’t get fined if you’ve done nothing wrong or that these fines are about anything other than blatant revenue raising then please pass this e-mail onto them and get them to justify their belief to you in the face of these clear and irrefutable facts!

Once they are finally awakened to the truth, urge them to join up as an E-book Member straight away - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – so that they can learn how badly they have been brainwashed up until this point and what they can now do to fight back with their new-found understanding and knowledge.

- The proof that it’s getting worse and what we can do about it

Many of you will recall how, back in January, we reported that the Victoria Police had issued a directive to specifically target low-level speeding and made all kinds of wild and baseless claims to justify doing so – please go to our News/Updates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2014-%252d-Current-Updates.html – if you missed that article.

Well, thankfully, as we recently challenged all police to do, some officers are now “waking up” and taking a stand for common sense and fighting back against what they know is clearly wrong.  This article - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/veteran-police-officer-phil-wild-will-not-face-inquiry-despite-publicly-raising-concerns-over-victoria-police-speed-crackdown/story-fni0fee2-1226849669421 - details a veteran police officer’s stand against this ridiculous new directive and explains the many reasons why it is such a bad idea.

You will, or should be, blown away by the opening lines which refer to the fact that the Victoria Police were actually seriously considering “disciplining” this officer for having a brain and using it rather than admitting that they were morons in the first place for even suggesting something so ridiculous!

We urge all police officers to have the courage to stand up as Sergeant Wild has and stop fining motorists for things that they know have nothing to do with “road safety” and to challenge any directives that they know to be wrong.

The same challenge goes out to Sheriff’s Officers as well – stop operating as glorified debt collectors, chasing up illegal and invalid “court orders” that contravene our Commonwealth Constitution and our Common Law rights.

Please see our next section for further information on how Sheriff’s Officers are becoming a law unto themselves.

- How Sheriff’s officers are completely out of control and acting illegally

One of our Members sent us this article - http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/21948150/clamp-on-fine-dodgers-pays-off/ - from WA which goes to show just how many laws Sheriff’s Officers are now breaking.

Removing number plates form a vehicle is a criminal offence – it’s called “tampering with a motor vehicle” – and has severe penalties. The problem is that the average person fails to pursue this angle when this happens to them.

“Naming and shaming” people is a blatant breach of privacy – The Privacy Act 1988 is a Commonwealth Law, no State Statute can over-ride that. Section 109 of the Commonwealth Constitution clearly states that When a law of a State is inconsistent with a law of the Commonwealth, the latter shall prevail, and the former shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be invalid.” These agencies have absolutely no authority to release this information without your consent and no “new” WA act or law – or any act or law in any other State or Territory – can change that.

And, ultimately, the simple fact is that almost all of those fines that they are pursuing are illegal and void. Section 8, sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act clearly states that “That all grants and promises of fines and forfeitures of particular persons before conviction, are illegal and void.” Until you have been convicted of anything by a court of competent jurisdiction, any fine is illegal and void – period.

About the only positive note that we could find in this story is the line towards the end that notes that 27 people had their cars clamped more than once – this means that they have read chapter 3 of our e-book and understand all of the above information and also know that once a wheel clamp is fitted to your vehicle it becomes a fixture, or chattel, of your car and becomes your property and you are well within your rights to cut it off – which they have clearly done.

The last 2 lines are of greatest concern to us though, because, not only does it not make any sense to spend money putting and keeping someone in jail for their failure to pay you money in the first place, but, more importantly, it is completely and utterly illegal at the highest levels. Article 11 of the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights – of which Australia is a party – clearly states that “No one shall be imprisoned merely on the grounds of inability to fulfill a contractual obligation” - http://www.ohchr.org/en/professionalinterest/pages/ccpr.aspx

As we explain in our e-book, all of these fines come from your “contract” with the government, so if you can’t pay a fine as a result of that contract then you can’t be jailed! We obviously don’t have time to go into it in detail here but if you don’t understand the difference between a “driver” and a “traveler” or you don’t understand what your ALL CAPS name is and how the government uses that to do “business” with you and “contract with” you then you need to go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and join up now.

The Sheriff’s Office has a lot to answer for and we would urge you all to read this page - http://pn.i-uv.com/brendan-facey/ - to get a greater understanding of what the issues are and what the Sheriff’s office, and associated parties, need to explain. These points are, of course, covered in greater detail in our e-book.

Please feel free to send your own version of that letter into anyone and everyone you can think of that should also be answering these questions and let’s send a united message that we will not tolerate this anymore, we will not be bullied, we will not be threatened and we will not allow these people to use their “perceived power” to deny us our rights any longer.

- Parking fine fightback

As we have said a million times before, and will continue saying a million times more, until the message gets through, we all need to challenge and fight back against every unjust and unlawful fine we receive.

We came across the follow story from A Current Affair about another novel approach to fighting back against unjust fines, in particular, parking fines - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article/8810922/parking-fine-fight-back

Now, we have no idea who this person is but we certainly commend him on his efforts to make people aware of the problem – unjust and unlawful fines being issued – and, more importantly, informing and educating them on the fact that you can fight back against these fines and you should.

At the end of the day, changing people’s beliefs about fines is the first and most important step. Letting them know that they do not just have to blindly “pay up” when they get a fine and letting them know that there are steps that they can take to successfully challenge a fine is very important.

And, as we explained in last week’s e-mail update, you can now get paid for doing just that! Whilst we believe that everyone should be spreading the news about our website and e-book anyway – simply to help out their fellow motorists – you can actually earn a very good income by helping us do that as well.

Please refer to last week’s e-mail update – available here http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2014-%252d-Current-Updates.html - for further details, or just go straight to our affiliates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Affiliates.html - to sign up and start earning money now.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We have, once again, we have received some very positive feedback from our Members this week who have successfully used our information to challenge and defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

Our first Member was so excited that he actually sent us two e-mails about his victory. His first was sent as soon as he left court:

Hi Folks,

This is a quick memo to advise the traffic infringement matter in court today was dismissed by the magistrate and I was discharged with no further requirement to run a case!

I will give a solid and detailed run down of the matter for you later today after a elebratory ale at my old pub in Hervey Bay.

Regards,

Dave

And he followed up with this more detailed e-mail later in the week:

Hi folks,

Home from Hervey Bay and back at work, taking time to formulate an application for costs under the provisions of the Justices Act so have been busy with that.

I have started putting together what I would like to make available for all readers and users of ASF as well as having the files and summaries on my Google+ account for people to refer to for general indications of what to expect in Queensland for challenges to tickets as well as general pointers for people to stay the course and use the ASF eBook to the fullest extent. Therefore I will not be stating anything contrary to the eBook and will encourage people to access it for the ridiculously low price it is going for.

So please bear with me as I put together a complete run down, summary and upload all documents used, emails back and forward and other stuff useful for referring to when dealing with this rort of traffic fines, I hope to have it done within 2 weeks as I intend doing it properly. It will be for you to use as you please, to reference or add links to in your updates or on the ASF pages for members or casual readers, I want to spread not only my message far and wide but the ASF message and to do that will feature you and your advice and motivation when I was wavering, over and over.

I cannot thank you enough, I came close to binning the whole matter but each time you all got back to me with good advice and even better real and genuine encouragement, I now need to repay that faith.

Stay tuned ASF I am full bore on this and you will like what I send when I am done!

Regards and Respect.

Dave - NSW

Our second is from another Member who successfully used our information to defeat

Hi Guys,

First of all, Thank You – We WON!

You may recall my case I wrote to you on a couple of occasions asking for “help” regarding a “Lidar” speeding infringement notice, which was being heard in the Local Court at Katoomba, NSW.

Representing myself, following your suggestions and “E-Book Info”, I managed to have my matter adjourned a number of times for various reasons, ie: Late availability of infringement issuing officer’s statement, Consultation, seeking legal advice, Late availability of my case’s transcript and most recently a Medical Certificate, all at the last moment over a period of nearly twelve months, which I’m sure cost the NSW Police a lot of extra money pursuing this matter.

Anyway to cut a long story short, as mentioned above my last request for an adjournment was by way of a “Medical Certificate” which would you believe was rejected and my case proceeded in my absence (bit of a low act I thought).

The outcome was that the Court dismissed my matter, by way of a “section 10 (1)(a)” ruling, meaning that the charge was proven, however the case was dismissed without conviction or penalties.

We won!!!

Again many thanks for your guidance and support, I will certainly be encouraging your Priceless “E-Book” membership.

Once again, Thank you for your invaluable information.

Best regards,

John – NSW.

How to make money with ASF whilst making changes to the system as well!

- Intro

It’s been almost a month since our last e-mail update so we have a lot to cover in this week's e-mail. We want to point out that we have been frantically working away in the background throughout this time and, one of the reasons we have not written sooner is because we had a string of e-mail, server and computer issues which we have only just managed to sort out. So, if you sent us an e-mail in the past three weeks or so and haven’t had a reply, please send it through again and we ill get onto it ASAP for you.

Whilst in the midst of sorting out our various “technology” issues, we have also been very busy reading through the plethora of articles that people have been sending us and it has become clear that now is the time to really crank things up and to start taking some real action. And, on that point, we have some very exciting news to share with you all in regards to not only getting your E-Book Membership for free – essentially – but how you can actually earn some serious cash with Aussie Speeding Fines as well.

So, let's get straight into it...

- Make money with Aussie Speeding Fines

We have been racking our brains for some time now to figure out a way that we can go from the 15,000 Members and Subscribers that we currently have on our database to 150,000 or, preferably, even 1.5 million.

We know our information works – it has been proven time and time again and we have four full pages of Testimonials on our website now that verify that fact - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - and new ones are added every couple of weeks.

We have a very popular Facebook Fan page – https://www.facebook.com/pages/Aussie-Speeding-Fines/433275636708829 -  as well as an actual Facebook group page - https://www.facebook.com/groups/19117918208/ - and we also have people handing out bumper stickers and business cards all over the country helping us to spread the word – please see our Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards section at the bottom of this e-mail to find out how you can help.

So, what else can we do to ensure that we get our e-books into the hands of Aussie motorists before they get a fine so that they are fully informed and prepared for when the inevitable happens to them?

Well, every so often, someone will e-mail us questioning the price of our e-book and, once we detail the costs of our on-going research and producing these regular e-mails updates, as well as explaining that the E-Book Membership price includes free updates for life and free e-mail support for life, they quickly see the incredible value of our E-Book Memberships - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

And then it hit us – what if we could actually provide all of this, including our invaluable, licence saving e-book, for free? Well, we believe that, in essence, we can now.

We don’t often mention our affiliate program because we know that it doesn’t appeal to all of our Members and Subscribers, however, having said that, more and more people are joining up every week and many of them are now making a substantial income simply by referring what they know to be an incredible product and service to other motorists.

So, for those of you who have a large e-mail database or have a website that receives a lot of traffic etc. then our affiliate program could be a fantastic, yet very simple way to generate a regular income whilst helping others and also helping us put an end to the current corrupt and ineffective system.

Please go to our Affiliates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Affiliates.html - to find out more and note that, unlike some affiliate programs, there is absolutely no cost to join and you earn a massive 33% commission on every person who joins up as an E-Book Member.

Now, earlier, we said that you could, in essence, get your entire E-Book Membership for free, so, how do you do that? Well, all you need to do is refer our e-mails, website and e-book to anyone and everyone you can think of and, when just 3 people join up as E-Book Members through your digital affiliate link, you will heave earned the cost of your E-Book Membership back in commissions!

The true beauty of this system is that everyone wins! This is not some pyramid scheme where the person at the top recruits others to “sell something” underneath them and the last people to “sign up” are left out of pocket – there will always be new drivers on our roads that can benefit from our information. You are not selling products or services that are overpriced or that people aren’t really going to want or use – you are promoting a proven product and service that has now helped thousands of people around the country defeat unjust and unlawful traffic fines.

And best of all, the more people that join up and decide to fight back against the current, ineffective system, the quicker it will clog up our courts and bring the system to a grinding halt.

So, if you would like to earn the cost of your E-Book Membership back or, perhaps, even earn a regular income by promoting our website and e-book, please be sure to follow the simple steps on our Affiliates page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Affiliates.html - and join up now and start making a difference on an even greater level than you already are.

- Why taking action now is more important than ever

We mentioned in the section above, the importance of getting as many people to fight back as possible to help clog up “the system”. Last year, we spoke at length with an ex-police officer and ex-police prosecutor who explained to us the importance of getting as many people to fight back as possible and we convinced him to provide us with a detailed explanation, in his own words, of why he had so dramatically changed from someone who had previously enforced the rules to someone who was now encouraging others to fight them. We provided a copy of that on our Updates Membership website -  http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Update-Membership-%252d-new-Members-area.html

Somewhere along the line, someone has copied that text from our website and, over the course of the past month or so, it has turned up on numerous websites and Facebook posts and the like – which we are fine with, as long as people simply note that Aussie Speeding Fines is the source of that information. One such website that we highly recommend is the Restore Australia website – http://www.restoreaustralia.org.au/ - and we would urge you all to support Mike in achieving his goals. You can also see the actual article that we are referring to above, here - http://www.restoreaustralia.org.au/good-advice-from-a-policeman/

At the end of the day, we are fully supportive of any group or person that encourages other to stand up for their rights and fight back against injustice and we firmly believe that the Aussie Speeding Fines e-book – “Speeding Fines what You REALLY Need to Know!” – is one of the simplest, yet most comprehensive ways of doing that, specifically in regards to traffic fines.

And, just in case you needed any further reasons to spread the word and make sure everyone has our information before the inevitable happens, have a look at this latest story from Victoria - http://news.drive.com.au/drive/motor-news/victoria-police-document-reveals-arsenal-of-weapons-for-war-on-speeding-20140122-3196e.html

The opening line should read “If you drive in Victoria there is a good chance you will be caught …”because Victoria still issues more unjust and unlawful fines than any other State. Please keep in mind the number of times flawed and faulty cameras have been turned off on the Western Ring Road, the Westgate Freeway and the Hume Highway – as well as the Victorian government being forced to even refund some fines because they were so clearly and obviously incorrectly issued that there was simply no way they could deny it. The simple fact is that these cameras are generally wrong and only sometimes get it “right”.

The numbers that they quote in this story are just staggering and, as usual, despite the statistics on the number of “speeding motorists” that is quoted, there is absolutely no mention of any accidents at these sites!

Now, did you catch this line - Victoria Police advertised on Wednesday for a supplier to certify the accuracy of ''Victoria Police's fleet of speed detectors used by members which encompasses radar devices, digitectors and laser devices''. – or did you just gloss over it?

If they are “advertising” for a supplier to certify the accuracy of these devices then that proves that they are not currently certified, which has been one of our fundamental arguments all along – lack of compliance with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act 1960. You can take this report into court with you and ask the right questions of the Prosecutor to have your case instantly dismissed – if they can’t prove that their devices have been certified then they cannot rely on the readings and you have no case to answer to!

Are you starting to see now why it is so important to fight back against these blatant revenue raising fines and why our e-book is so critical in helping you do so!

- What others have achieved by fighting back

The great news is that if we do get people to start standing up for their rights and fighting back against these ridiculous fines, we can make a real difference. Just have a look at what like-minded people in the US have achieved recently:

Firstly, a Judge has ordered a village in Ohio to stoop using speed cameras because “they’re being used to violate motorists’ rights to due process” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/02/26/ohio-judge-halts-use-village-speeding-traffic-cameras-after-lawsuit/  - our rights to “due process” are just as equally being violated here in Australia.

Another important line in that story that applies here as well is this one; “He had told the judge in court that more than half of the motorists who did challenge their tickets in the current system had them dismissed.” – the majority of people that challenge their tickets here in Australia have them dismissed as well, we just need more people to challenge them!

And, secondly, this story - http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-02-25/red-light-cameras-click-less-as-u-s-towns-get-orwell-off-roads.html - shows how red light cameras are being shut down all across the country.

Again, statements like these apply equally to Australia: “It’s almost like racketeering. It’s not about safety.”; “It’s wrong to try to balance a budget on ill-gotten gains from a program that’s premised on safety,” ; “It’s a back-door tax.” and; “on a gut level they are fundamentally abhorrent – It’s a system being abused.”

These cameras exist purely for revenue raising and, just like in the US, when we get enough people to challenge these speed and red light cameras here in Australia, we too will be successful in having them switched off.

And last, but not least, if you needed any more evidence to back up what we have been saying on our Petition to Remove Cameras webpage - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - all this time, have a read over this article - http://www.gainesville.com/article/2014140219959?tc=ar

It categorically states that crashes have increased at intersections with red light cameras and, once again, people – in this case, “lawmakers” – are pushing ahead to “restrict” the use of cameras in the future. And, here we have a Senate Transportation Chairman clearly stating that “I have consistently argued that red-light cameras are not being used for safety but are about generating revenue.”

So, if you have any doubts as to the true purpose of these cameras, that should clear it up once and for all and, if you don’t have any doubts about this then you’d better make damn sure that you’re part of the solution and not part of the problem by getting our e-book and fighting every camera fine you receive and encouraging others to do the same!

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Once again, we have received some very positive feedback from our Members this week who have successfully used our information to challenge and defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

We want to focus your attention on the content of this week’s e-mail update – in particular, our affiliate program – so we are just including a short and simple one this week from a Member who not only defeated a speeding fine but had demerit points that had been previously applied, removed, and even had a 12 month good driving bond removed as well.

Hi,

Just letting you know that I have just been informed that a speeding fine I had which included 3 demerit points has been removed from my licence records.  And the twelve month conditional bond has also been deleted.

No explanation why , and my only notification has been from VicRoads. I applied for revocation from the Infringement court, saw a magistrate and said I want my day in court. Was threatened that I would have to pay court costs but told him that where they used it, coming around a bend , going down hill into a built up area with metal signs everywhere wasn't appropriate. Got a court date 4th of April but now I have nothing.

Thanks for the info.

Barry – Vic.

Remember, just because you elect to have a matter go to court, it does not mean that it will actually proceed to court at the end of the day.

Finally some TRUTH about the revenue raising madness!

This week's e-mail has a very logical flow to it and we trust that if there is anyone out there who still believes in the virtues of the speed camera program - or if you pass our e-mails onto others that may not yet understand that it is all about revenue raising - then hopefully this e-mail will clarify things 100% for everyone.

So, let's get straight into it...

- The TRUTH about accidents and "speed"

For many years now, we have had some important Crash Statistics up on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - which detail that "speed" is only "a" factor in just 5% of accidents.

Well, a new study has just recently been completed in the UK and it too shows very similar results. You can see the full story for yourself here - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/road-safety/8702111/How-do-accidents-happen.html  

In essence, this article confirms what we have been saying all along, that it is lack of focus and inattention that are the biggest issues and better driver training and education are needed to reduce the road toll, not just blindly lowering speed limits and introducing more speed cameras, and the like, to enforce them.

- Some suggestions to be implemented

So, on the back of the story above, what does the illustrious Victorian "Speed Camera Watchdog" suggest? More cameras of course! What a moron!!!

This article - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/speed-camera-watchdog-calls-for-more-pointtopoint-cameras/story-fni0fee2-1226819965346 - goes to show what a simple propaganda puppet he is for the government and what a joke his position is.

Now, having said that, he does make some other very important points that we would encourage the powers-that-be to pursue. We too would like to see much greater transparency - and that is something we will get into further detail in the next section - and, in particular, we would like to see that actual facts and statistics surrounding specific speed camera sites and locations.

Most importantly, we would like to see a comparison between accident rates before and after cameras are deployed in those locations because every independent study - not the ones paid for by the government to produce results that back up their claims - shows that speed cameras are not an effective deterrent and, furthermore, even if they were, "speed" or exceeding some arbitrary speed limit is all but entirely irrelevant - driving to the conditions and the other factors noted in the section above are what is really important.

However, getting back to the main topic of the article, we hereby ask Mr Lewis how exactly he can justify the suggestion that more point-to-point cameras on freeways will be of benefit when; the NT has just removed speed limits from one of their main highways, when Wheels magazine recently proved that driving 130km/h from Melbourne to Sydney was completely safe and now, Victorian Liberal Democratic Senator David Leyonhjelm is pushing for the general public to decide on sensible speed limits - rather than politicians - and he suggests that 140km/h on freeways would make a lot more sense than the current 110 and 110 k speed restrictions. See "Pedal to the Metal - Senator wants 140km/h freeways" article in the Herald Sun - sorry, we couldn't find a digital link to that particular story.

Come on Mr Lewis, we're here basically 24/7 so we challenge you - or any of the cronies that you work for - to please email us, day or night, and try to justify your rationale for more speed cameras, especially point-to-point ones on freeways - given all of the above data!

- The incredible level of corruption that permeates this insidious revenue raising program

Following on from the section above, we would again like to re-iterate Speed Camera Watchdog, Gordon Lewis' desire for better transparency. In fact, his actual words from the article were; "In my view the most important word in the road safety camera system is transparency." 

So Gordon, how would you like to explain the following two articles:

The first details a $2 million bribery scandal involving Australian based speed and red light camera manufacturer, Redflex - http://www.afr.com/p/technology/redflex_scandal_widens_in_us_7ndbgLo6Fz1vW877Kfh0DJ Please note that the article explains that they are being investigated for 2 more counts of alleged misconduct - how many others have come before these ones?

The second article is a follow up story in relation to that investigation - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uc_kosq5phQ - and even goes onto state that these cameras serve only as revenue raisers and there are serious doubts as to their effectiveness to do anything other than to spy on and fine drivers!

Those very same cameras have also been ordered to be confiscated by a Judge in Cincinnati and, when they failed to do so in time, the Judge found the company in contempt of court - http://www.naturalnews.com/041084_speed_cameras_surveillance_speeding_tickets.html#  

If you honestly think that Redflex, which is a Melbourne based company, is only involved in bribery and other forms of misconduct in the US, and not right here in their own backyard, in Australia, then we have a few really great bridges to sell you!

Once again, please Mr Gordon, share with us some of that "transparency" that you talk so much about and get the police and other relevant agencies concerned to tell us the truth about these speed cameras.

- Insane increase in speed camera revenue

Finally, if all of the above wasn't enough, this news story from South Australia - http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/video/watch/20892689/speed-camera-revenue-soars/ - details how speed camera revenue, in just SA alone, has soared from just $6 million in 2010 to $79 million dollars in 2013! How on earth do they justify that kind of insane increase in just 3 years!!!

That increase is a factor of 13 times yet the road toll hasn't gone down by anything like the same factor - despite their assertion that it is the lowest in 90 years! Far-be-it for them to admit that breakthroughs in vehicle safety, such as ABS, air bags etc. had any role to play in that reduction - oh no, according to them, it must all be as a result of their speed camera program - how ridiculous!

As for all the rubbish about "If you don't speed then you won't get caught", how do they explain the thousands - even tens of thousands - of incorrect speeding tickets that are withdrawn and/or refunded each and every year due to any number of different errors with these so-called "accurate" cameras?

As we keep trying to tell people, speed cameras are fundamentally flawed and inaccurate and only sometimes "get it right" - which is exactly how the government wants them to operate because they make tens - even hundreds - of millions of dollars a year for them!

And, as always, if there has been increase in the number of speeding drivers, as they claim - especially to the point of  justifying an increase in revenue from just $6 million to $79 million in only 3 years - and, if "speed' really is the big "killer" that they tell us it is, then please provide us with the statistics that detail the 13 fold increase in accidents to prove those ridiculous and baseless claims!

Remember, you have an obligation to stand up for your rights and fight back against any unjust and/or unlawful fines - as Justice Robert Jackson said during the Nuermburg trials “It is not the function of the government to stop the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.”

Challenging your fines is not "too hard", if you have the right information. It does not "cost too much", in fact, we show you why it doesn't cost you anything at all. And, if you continue to just blindly "pay up" then you are reinforcing the message to these corrupt agencies that we will just continue to "roll over" and they can keep doing whatever they want to us.

Now, if that's not how you feel and you no longer want to put up with this madness then please, go to our E-Book Membership's page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - and order your copy of our invaluable, licence saving, demerit point saving and money saving e-book straight away!

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Once again, we have received some very positive feedback from our Members this week who have successfully used our information to challenge and defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

The first is from a Member who simply used our 3 step process, just as we explain it in Chapter 3 of our e-book, to successfully have a fine withdrawn. Once again, this clearly shows that just because you "elect"; to go to court, it does not mean that they will actually take a matter to court.

Hi.

Just letting you know that I sent the 3 letters off and insisted to go to court.

 Got a letter yesterday from the Police telling me that 'no further police action will be taken against you'. The heading of the letter is REVIEW OF TRAFFIC CAMERA OFFENCE.

You beauty!!. I can send you a copy of the letter if you want.

Thank you Aussie Speeding Fines!!

James - Vic.

The second is from a Member who challenged an unjust fine because of clear errors in the Police paperwork. They pursued the matter in court but then withdrew the fine at the last minute and, not only did she not have to attend court but she was awarded costs in her favour as well. As we keep saying, if every person challenged every fine they received and they were awarded costs when they won, the current system would come to a grinding halt very quickly!

Hi ASF,

Just thought I would let you know of the outcome of a speeding ticket I received in 2012, a camera in back of vehicle in Townsville. I was visiting my son there and borrowed his vehicle, I do not speed in my own car let along someone elses. I protested and asked for it to be transferred to  Brisbane where I live and they refused only if I pleaded guilty  (what a joke).

Even though I had sent stat decs to the courthouse, they put it through as if I was guilty and I received a sper fine for double the amount the original fine. I applied to have the case reopened and after an interview by phone with the magistrate (he said he wanted me in Townsville to face the court) I received letters from the Senior Constable handling the case telling me I was driving a black holden station wagon with a number plate similar to the plate my son has with one letter swapped around. I sent through faxes stating this error, the vehicle I was driving was a small red mazda.

I purchased my plane ticket for Townsville a month before and the day  before I was due to fly out the Police prosecutor gave me a call and told me they were dropping the case because of errors and he did not know why the error was not found sooner. I told him I was flying out the next day for Townsville and it had cost me money to purchase a plane ticket to defend myself.  He said he would  request from the Magistrate that I get reimbursed for the ticket. The day of the hearing which I did not have to go to the police prosecutor called me and said the magistrate had granted me costs for the plane ticket.

A good out come because of the mistakes they make in the paperwork.

Roslyn - QLD

And finally, as we have explained many times, the principles in our e-book have been successfully applied to all manner of unjust and unlawful situations and here is yet another example of how a Member has successfully adapted our information to deal with a matter that didn't even involve a fine at all.

Hi folks,

I just wanted to let you know that your ASF e-book has just come in extremely handy in an area NOT for speeding or other vehicular fines.

I was attacked by dogs last Easter and am taking legal action under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Act. I just received a letter from a private investigator firm requesting information. Their letter uses my surname in ALL CAPS - plus it isn't even signed!! So I referred to my trusty ASF e-book and now have the private investigators completely off my back (and very likely scratching their heads)  because I know more about the law than they do by having such handy information provided by ASF!!!

A huge thank you!

Cheers,

Bill

It's going to get worse before it gets better!

- Intro

We trust this week’s e-mail update finds you all relaxed after a great Australia Day long weekend. We trust that not too many of you have returned to find fines waiting for you, as happened to many of our Members over the Christmas/New Year break – especially since this was a double demerit point weekend which, they are now trying to make worse as well - http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/20952689/review-for-double-demerits/ If it’s not bad enough that they are already unlawfully punishing you twice for the same “offence” – a financial penalty and a demerit point penalty – they now want to increase the range of those penalties!

Unfortunately, that is only the beginning of the bad news this week, because, as the title of this week’s e-mail says, it is clear that things are going to get worse before they get better. How much worse though is entirely up to you, the Australian motoring public.

So, to see what’s news this week, read on … oh, and don’t freak out about the apparent length of this e-mail, half of it is just the latest testimonials of success with our system!

- Victoria is fighting to reclaim its title of most unjust fines issued

In our last few e-mail updates, we noted that things in QLD had gone insane over the Christmas/New Year period and how ridiculous fines were being issued left, right and centre.

Well, not to be outdone, Victoria is fighting to reclaim its title of having the most unjust and unlawful fines issued and, this week, police were specifically ordered to target low-level speeding offenders. You can see the full story here - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/traffic-police-told-to-target-lowlevel-speeding-offenders/story-fni0fee2-1226807937959

Now, the second line really does say it all – they have categorically stated that their intent is to brainwash people into believing that driving 1 or 2 k’s over the limit is as bad as drink driving – is this guy, Robert Hill, for real??? The only reason to specifically set out to make that “socially unacceptable” is to justify the extra revenue they will raise as a result - period.

The current speed limits are a joke and the reason that the average, law abiding motorist ignores them is because they are unrealistic! Fining people for 1 or 2 k’s over isn’t going to stop people from doing what they know is fair and reasonable and is only going to succeed in alienating motorists completely. Most traffic cops complain that people don’t show them any respect – seriously, do you wonder why when they now stoop to these lows!

As for Robert Hill’s assertion that low-level speeding is as dangerous as high level speeding, that flies in the face of all their other ridiculous propaganda – previous TAC ads etc. - and everyone knows that the only time that can be true is if the speed is inappropriate for the conditions – entirely irrespective of what the actual speed is or what the sign posted speed limit says.

And, to make matters worse in Vic, one of our Members sent us in some advertisements from the Herald Sun where the Sheriff’s Office is trying to recruit more officers. The ads harp on about how these officers are there to “contribute to a fairer justice system and a safer Victoria”. Can someone please tell us how someone who is going to receive 3 months training – which they explain in their ads – is then going to magically make our so-called “justice system” any fairer or make Victoria safer. The Sheriff’s Office should be sued for false advertising!

These people are being employed to be glorified debt collectors and we trust that anyone who gives these advertisements even a second’s thought will quickly dismiss them as exactly that. After all, what kind of person would take on a job knowing ahead of time that they may have to clamp a mate’s car or that of a family member, all over a fine that was unjust and unlawful in the first place!

We hope more and more Sheriff’s Officers leave in droves and that they can’t fill a single position! Remember, once the debt collection arm of the Government closes down, in conjunction with more and more people successfully challenging their fines, the revenue stream will quickly shut down and the government will have to take notice of the strategies that we want to see introduced, such as the ones outlined on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html

- QLD is still determined to hang onto its new title though

As we noted in the section above, there is definitely a fight on between Victoria and Queensland as to who can issue the most unjust and unlawful fines and, even though Victoria has “upped the ante”, QLD is not giving up.

We received an incredulous story this past week about a motorist who was fined $110 because he stopped for 3 seconds to drop someone off at work – probably so they could earn money to pay off some unjust and unlawful debt to the government! The full story is here - http://www.couriermail.com.au/questnews/east/stopping-for-3-seconds-at-westfield-carindale-cost-this-man-110-fine-from-brisbane-city-council/story-fni9r0lo-1226808855468

As usual, everyone is trying to handball responsibility to someone else but, as we keep telling people, the undisputed facts are that the shopping centre is private property and, even if it wasn’t, council officers have no lawful right to issue fines because local councils are not recognized under the Commonwealth Constitution.

The 4th last line really details the absurdity of this fine – if the officer didn’t even have time to go and ask the person to move how much of an inconvenience or “safety issue” could he really have been posing!

Remember, the government argues that fines are there to encourage people to do the “right” thing. If the officer doesn’t even have time to tell the person that he is not doing the right thing then he has no justification for finding the time to snap a quick photo and then issuing a fine after the fact. This is just blatant revenue raising and we encourage this motorist, as well as any other motorist who receives a similar fine, to use our information to challenge it!

But wait, there’s more ….

Only a few weeks ago, a motorist was fined $146 for momentarily lifting his foot off the footrest on his motorcycle - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/motorcyclist-fined-146-for-lifting-his-leg-off-footrest/story-fnihsrf2-1226797016499# Now, anyone who rides a motorcycle will tell you that this is to ensure that you don’t cramp up and so that you are fully flexible and alert whilst riding.

What’s interesting is that even the Police Commissioner himself admitted that you are allowed to stretch you legs out and he even does it himself! And, just this week, a motorcycle cop was filmed doing the exact same thing - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/fine-by-them-motorcycle-cop-stretches-his-leg-while-riding-which-led-to-another-man-being-fined/story-fnihsrf2-1226808354990 - we are not aware of him being issued with any fine.

So, that begs the question - why was this motorist fined in the first place???

He was fined because these agencies know that it is only in the most extreme examples, such as this one, that most people bother to fight back so, for them, it is simply a numbers game – the more fines they issue, the more revenue will be collected for the government.

Please see the next section for details on how to change this insidious practice.

- Time to change people’s perceptions once and for all

Following on from the section above, one may wonder what’s really going on here - Is it a case of one rule for the cops and one rule for us? Have the cops gone completely insane?

In truth, whenever anyone holds a position of power there is always going to be a bit of the “one rule for us, one rule for you” mentality but not to this degree. The reality is that the cops are not the bad guys here – well, not completely anyway. They are being directed by their superiors – who are, in turn, being directed by the government – to raise more money for the government because they are fiscally incompetent.

Now, the police are told that if they don’t issue more fines, they will be fired. Guess what guys, better to be fired from a job that you know is wrong than stay there and be universally despised and disrespected. Yes, we understand that you have bills to pay and you need to put food on the table like the rest of us but hey, you can always quit and start again like most people have been forced to do at one point or another in their lives.

If you haven’t yet seen the message below or you know a police or Sheriff’s officer that hasn’t yet seen it, please direct them to this short but very powerful video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg 

We need to change people’s thinking and, in the same way as the police in Victoria are trying to make it “socially unacceptable” for drivers to exceed some arbitrary speed limit by even a small amount, we want to make it socially unacceptable for police to issue ridiculous fines, such as the ones detailed above.

We also want to make challenging every fine you receive not only “socially acceptable” but the only sensible thing that any thinking motorist would do when he or she receives an unjust or unlawful fine.

You see, apart from the massive financial burden that these fines put on society – in addition to the negative impact on your insurance and your licence that also happens whenever you just blindly pay a fine – the simple fact is that fines don’t work! This article explains why - http://thenewdaily.com.au/life/2014/01/27/real-police-need-slow-speeders/

As this article details, we need more police on the streets actually doing real police work – that means fining motorists for driving dangerously, and only for driving dangerously – not issuing fines willy nilly for all kinds of ridiculous things that have absolutely no bearing on road safety what-so-ever.

In fact, we’re going to formally challenge all traffic cops and Sheriff’s officers, right here and now, in writing, to “do your job” – by that, we mean the job you actually signed up to do, to keep our roads safe and not to simply act as glorified revenue raisers and debt collectors for our fiscally incompetent elected “leaders”. If you are not prepared to bring common sense back into your job description and start acting in the age old tradition of “do unto others as you would have others do unto you” then please, have courage to stand up for yourself, to stand up for your fellow motorists and lay down your badge and gun and quit!

Quite simply, if you’re not part of the solution then you’re part of the problem – period.

We urge you all to help us spread this message to all police and Sheriff’s officers and urge them to make a choice. Copy and paste this section onto your Facebook pages, pass this e-mail onto others on your contact list – being sure to remove the un-subscribe link at the bottom first so someone doesn’t accidentally remove you from our database – and do anything else you can think of to get this message out there.

In the meantime, please urge everyone you know to get a copy of our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and to start challenging every unjust and unlawful fine they receive  

- A small glimmer of hope

It’s not all bad news this week and, even though most of the articles have been fairly negative so far, we’re glass half full kinda people here at ASF so even some good news is better than none.

Whilst this article from the Northern Territory focuses on the increase in speeding fine penalties - http://www.carsales.com.au/news/nt-speeding-fines-rise-coincides-with-unlimited-speed-zone-trial-41185  - it highlights a very important trial that we are hopeful will have some long term positive ramifications for all States in the future.

We speak, of course, of the unlimited speed zone trial that we’re confident will reduce the road toll in the NT which previously increased as soon as speed limits were brought in on the open roads.

The facts have already shown that when the previous un-restricted speed limits were removed the road toll increased so now, once the speed limits are removed again and the road toll decreases, there will be absolutely no argument left for these morons about any real correlation between the road toll and “speed” and that will hopefully be enough for other States to remove speed restrictions – or at the very least increase them significantly – on all open roads to achieve what we have been saying all along!

And, there’s one more bit of good news – please read the section below which details the latest e-mails that we have received from Members that have successfully used our information to defeat their unjust and unlawful fines.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

Most people are back into full swing for the year now and that means more success stories from our Members.

The first is a very powerful e-mail from a Member who used our information to defeat 5 fines – including un-registered vehicle fines as well as speeding fines – all by using our 3 step process, which is detailed in Chapter 3 of our e-book.

A big thanks To the team at ASF.

I have successfully beaten 5 infringement notices thanks to the info provided by the ASF TEAM without any costs incurred by me except for the initial purchase of the ASF e-book and membership fee Less than $100 total to beat in excess of 4 k of fines and added penalties.

I won't go into all the details as it would take to long but here is a brief outline.

2 tickets were for driving unregistered vehicle both of which were incorrect anyway as I was overseas at the time of the alleged offence with proof of my car being in storage. I never needed that proof though as I followed the advice in the ASF ebook. I got a short letter back via email saying due to a clerical error no further action is required.

The other 3 notices were for allegedly speeding and I got the same response as in the last 2 from the SA POLICE after sending them the notice of objection as per the ebook.

So I highly recommend that everyone challenge all infringement notices / fines and tell as many people to do the same by joining ASF and getting the e-book.

Thanks again ASF and I would be happy to help in any way I can to promote your cause and info that helps us to stand up for our rights. If any of your members wish to contact me for more details my email is (e-mail removed to protect privacy but will be supplied upon request)

Trevor – S.A.

The second is a fairly lengthy but very important e-mail from a Member who successfully defeated a red light fine. You will note that he highlights the value of the information in our e-book, the promptness of our on-going service as well as the importance of fighting til the very end and not just giving up as most people do half way through, no matter how hard they try and make it for you.

This Member says exactly the same thing that we do, if you fail at the Magistrate’s court level then appealing to the higher courts actually gives you a much better chance of winning. And, not only did he win his case but he was awarded $600 in costs for his efforts!

Hi guys,

I wanted to take the time to write you personally to thank you for all the time and effort you’ve put into enabling ordinary people such as myself to stand up and fight the corrupt system that we forced to live in.  The extent of your research is apparent both from the contents of your ebook and the ongoing email updates you send.  I also wish to thank you for your advice and support, and for promptly responding to my emails as I worked through the lengthy process of fighting an incorrectly issued red light fine I received over 2 years ago.  Yes it really took that long for justice to prevail!

Below are the highlights which I’ve attempted to outline as succinctly as possible for you to use as a testimonial if you wish.

I was pulled over on December 2011 after driving through an amber light just before it turned red.  I immediately explained to the officer that the light was amber, however it seemed he had made up his mind that he would be issuing me with a fine irrespective of anything I had to say.  It may or may not be relevant to note that in my ten years of driving experience, never before had I been pulled over or received a fine up to this point.

I immediately went home determined to fight this injustice on principle.  I stumbled across the Aussie Speeding Fines website, purchased the ebook and followed the 3 step process outlined in it.  I sent all the letters off, however, each one was ignored and I eventually found myself in the Magistrates Court (it was so long ago I can’t recall whether that was my doing or theirs). 

Anyway, I raised all the arguments I had discussed in my letters about how the court was not complying with my request to have the matter heard by a Chapter III court. I then challenged the validity of the ‘road rules’ being accepted as law, before cross-examining the officer who had pulled me over.  Finally, I gave sworn evidence of my version of events.  In particular, I focused on the fact that the officer had actually lied in his statement about his position at the time of the alleged offence. 

He said he had been behind me, when he had actually been waiting at an adjacent entrance to the intersection.  I believe he lied in order to add weight to his evidence, since from his actual position he would have had to have conceded that he did not have the best view of the lights or my car in relation to the lines on the road. 

Long story short, I ultimately ended up losing the case despite the fact the Magistrate (or Judicial Registrar as it turned out) conceded that he had heard "diametrically opposed evidence from both the officer and myself", and he had been "unable to split them" (reasonable doubt???).  Nevertheless, he elected to find in favour of the prosecution.  I couldn’t believe it!

I shook my head, went straight downstairs and attempted to organise an appeal.  I was told that I was unable to do this as the procedure I needed to follow involved applying for a rehearing since a Judicial Registrar had heard my case, not a Magistrate.

I filled out the paperwork and was surprised to receive a letter in the mail several weeks later advising me that my application for rehearing had been rejected.  I called to obtain further details and was advised that the way it works is that the Magistrate simply receives the application and makes a decision.  They are not required to provide a reason for making their decision.  What a waste of time!

I immediately returned to the Magistrate’s Court to lodge the paperwork for the appeal (apparently it was not possible to do this by scanning and emailing documents, nor was it possible to post or fax them in – I physically had to go into the court to complete those forms!), however the 28 days I had to lodge this paperwork had elapsed while I had been waiting for the outcome of the rehearing.  This meant the first step when I attended the County Court several months later was to provide justification for not lodging the paperwork in time when the prosecution raised it as reason for throwing the matter out! 

I explained that I had tried to appeal on the very day of the Magistrate’s Court hearing, but I had been told that I had to apply for a rehearing first.  The judge accepted that it constituted "exceptional circumstances" and authorised the case to go ahead.  The prosecution then advised they could not actually proceed, as the informant (the police officer who had pulled me over) was not available due to an injury he had suffered which had left him sitting at home on work cover indefinitely. 

It was May 2013 and the prosecution wasn’t prepared to commit to a date for the remainder of the year.  I objected and the judge agreed that he wasn’t prepared to push the hearing out into next year as it would have been over 2 years since the incident by then.  He went ahead and set a date for December.

I returned in December only to be informed that the informant had returned to work the previous week but had suffered another workplace injury and was on work cover again.  I got a laugh from several barristers in the room who were waiting to have their respective cases heard when I sarcastically commented that it seemed it had been a very unfortunate year for the informant.  Even the judge was trying not to laugh. 

I explained to the judge that the informant appeared to be playing games as this was the second time he had failed to turn up.  I also raised the issue of costs as this point, explaining that each time I am required to attend court I am also required to take the day off work which results in lost earnings. 

She commented that fighting a matter on principle is an expensive hobby and that although she wasn’t telling me what I should do, I should consider whether it was worth it.  She then went ahead and did something she said she wasn’t sure she was meant to do – she scheduled the contest for the following week to appear before her and placed a note on the file that there could be no further adjournments by the prosecution, and that if the informant was not available on this new date she would find the matter in my favour.

The next week I turned up again and immediately looked around for the officer.  Initially I couldn’t see him, however he walked in right before my case was called.  I realised that it was me against the officer who had pulled me over, a barrister wearing a wig and gown, and a solicitor who was assisting her.  Far from intimidated, I was completely prepared and ready to go.

I don’t think they were prepared for me and I think they expected the whole thing to be a walk in the park since I was representing myself.  I also don’t think they had expected me to take the tact that I did.

I knew that the prosecution’s case rested on the sworn evidence the officer would give.  Therefore, I knew if I could catch him out lying, his credibility would be ruined and I would win (if the system was truly fair).  I doubted that he had really had such a bad run of luck to have honestly spent so much time out of work sitting at home on work cover, so when the time came for me to cross-examine him, I started by inquiring into this rather than discussing the actual matter as they had expected me to.  I threw a total curve ball – even the judge didn’t initially know where I was going with my line of questioning.

I asked the officer to kindly inform the court of the days he had been absent from work this year.  He said he couldn’t recall exactly.  I asked him to provide an approximation.  He said he remembered having a few weeks off at the beginning of the year.  I asked if this was the only time he could recall having had off work this year and he said, “Yes”.  I asked him how many injuries he had sustained this year which required time off work and he said, "One". 

I knew I had him – remember he had told the court he would not be available on two separate occasions for two different injuries.  I kept pushing until the judge asked me why it was relevant.  I replied, “The informant appears to have a tendency to lie since he somehow can’t remember sustaining an injury so serious that he had apparently required six months off work.  An injury so serious that he wasn’t even able to attend court at the times this matter had previously been scheduled to be heard”. 

The judge listened, agreed, and then took to questioning the informant about his time off herself.  The best he could come up with was to mention something about a recurring back injury which occasionally forces him to take a couple of days or weeks off from time to time.  I had exposed him and now simply needed to exploit his lack of credibility before the court.  I seized the opportunity to question him about his position in relation to the intersection and accused him of lying in his statement when he said he had been behind me at the time of the alleged offence.

I won’t bore you with all the details since this has become quite lengthy already, but suffice to say that I raised several technical points about a range of issues that I knew I would be able to catch him out on, and when the time came for me to say, ‘I have no further questions’ I knew I had won.

The barrister went on to cross-examine the informant and me, asking a few pointless questions that went nowhere.  Perhaps she was new to the game and this was one of her first cases because she didn’t even seem to be following what was going on.  At one point she even solidified a point I was attempting to make even though I didn’t have any evidence, by mistakenly providing that evidence I lacked!

It came time for the judge to make a decision and she had no trouble finding that the prosecution had not proven their case against me beyond reasonable doubt.  I had won!

The prosecution team looked surprised but I was not finished.  I asked the judge to award costs and explained that as I was a contractor who was paid a daily rate, I was only paid for the days I actually worked.  Furthermore, there was no provision for me to work part days – I either worked a full-day or not at all.  Each time I had been required to attend court it had resulted in lost earnings due to my having to take the day off work. 

The barrister attempted to object stating that I had not proven that I hadn’t committed the offence – I had only won due to the prosecution not proving their case beyond reasonable doubt.  The judge retorted, “But that’s not the test is it?”  The barrister made a few more feeble attempts to prevent me claiming costs, before the judge cut her off and bluntly stated that she would be awarding me $600.  The prosecution were gobsmacked and left with their tails between their legs.

In actual fact I had asked for $1200 worth of legitimate costs – all for loss of earnings – so really they got off lightly.  I decided not to push for the full amount but did wonder how the judge had arrived at the figure of exactly half of what I had asked for. 

Nevertheless, the day could only be described as a complete success – not only did I not have to pay the fine and not have the demerit points added to my license, but I had a lot of fun in there and felt great about standing up for myself and my fellow motorists against what can only be described as a corrupt system.

I truly believe the Magistrate’s Court play’s into the corruption.  It seems that their job is to simply make people feel like they had a fair trial so they don’t feel so bad about paying up when they lose.  How else do you explain the fact that nearly all cases that come down to a private citizen's word against that of a police officer are found in favour of the police officer?  How else do you explain the fact that it is so much harder to lodge the exact same form in the Magistrate’s Court compared with lodging it in the County Court?

I encourage everyone to appeal any decisions that go against them in the Magistrate’s Court, and to go ahead and get a fair trial in the County Court.  In my experience, not only is the process more unbiased in the County Court, but I believe it is actually easier to win your case there as the prosecutors and even the judges are not as experienced in dealing with these kinds of matters - it is just not all that common for them to end up there.  Remember, traffic fines are the domain – the bread and butter – of the Magistrate’s Court, so having them heard in the County Court is as close to neutral territory as you are ever going to get.

I have several more fines I am fighting.  I'm taking them one at a time and doing so with ever-increasing confidence as I gain more experience each time.  I will write in and let you know the outcomes of each of these as I go.

Thank you Aussie Speeding Fines once again for all your excellent work!

Best wishes,

 

Rob – Vic.

Ps. I framed the letter I received from the court following my win.  It states that the Police Commissioner is required to pay me $600 within 3 months.  Fantastic!

18 January, 2014
ASF is making some great headway in 2014!

- Intro

After starting this year on a somewhat harsh note, we are pleased to report that we have some very positive news to share with you all this week.

Before we get started though we would urge you all to read our first e-mail update of the year again so that you are familiar with the stories from a few weeks ago that we will be referring to in this e-mail. If you missed it, or any other e-mail updates, you can find them on our News/Updates pages - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2014-%252d-Current-Updates.html

We especially draw your attention to the “Message to Police” video from Josie as that has been very well received and, as you will see from our first segment, this week, seems to have already had a very positive impact. Again, if you haven’t seen it, there is a direct link to it here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg

Okay, so let’s get straight into this week’s exciting e-mail update…

- Police are finally taking a stance against government corruption

As we noted above, just on 2 weeks ago, we shared a very powerful “Message to Police” video that was made in the US but was also directly relevant to police officers here in Australia. We asked you all to pass this video on far and wide and explained that we will, in fact, be creating our own Aussie version of this video, which we hope to have ready in the next few weeks.

Well, the great news is that it seems that police are already taking notice, as this story from South Australia shows - http://au.news.yahoo.com/sa/video/watch/20654433/police-could-stop-fining-unregistered-cars/ We were genuinely surprised and extremely impressed that this story was broadcast on mainstream media and we cannot commend Tom Scheffler highly enough for taking such a positive and powerful stand against this ridiculous increase in fines for something that has no victim and causes no harm or loss to anyone – except a clear loss of revenue for the state government!

It is great that Mr Scheffler understands the importance of the relationship between police and motorists – something that Campbell Newman and his cronies up in QLD could learn a lot from!

Please keep in mind that, as we explain in our e-book, once your vehicle has been registered once then it is registered forever – if it wasn’t registered, how would they know who to issue the fine to? They know because they look it up on the database that the vehicle is registered on!

Not only that but it is registered on a database belonging to a private company that simply keeps the database on behalf of the government. So, at best, you have failed to pay an administrative fee to a private corporation which renders the matter a civil debt matter and not lawfully liable to any “fines”.

Our message to Michael O’Brien is very simple – if he believes that the non payment of registration is such an issue then by reducing the actual registration amount more people will pay and the issue will no longer exist – oh, hang on, that would be fair and reasonable and wouldn’t make money for the government though, we can’t have that!

Quite simply, the State government, in South Australia, and all other States as well, needs to go back to their motorists and establish what people believe is a fair and reasonable amount to pay in registration because the current fees are insane, which is why more and more people aren’t paying them.

At the end of the day though, it is fantastic to hear that the S.A. Police Association and S.A .Police members themselves are refusing to issue these fines because, as much as we all get frustrated with police, at the end of the day, they are motorists too and if we all begin to live by the age old rule of “do unto others as you would have others do unto you”, the relationship between motorists and police will be dramatically improved and motoring , in general, would become much more enjoyable

Well done South Australia Police! Now, if we could just get the Police in every State to stop issuing all ridiculous, unjust and unlawful fines we would all be a lot better off – it’s a great start to the New Year though.

- How to fix the mess in QLD

We often have people contact us and ask us why there are so many references on our website or in our e-book to Victoria and our answer has always been that Victoria issues more unjust and unlawful fines than any other State. Well, Victoria is rapidly losing that title to QLD, where things have gone completely out of control over the last few months.

Speed limit tolerances have been dropped, and, as we reported in our last e-mail update, a driver was issued an insane fine for being just 1 km/h over the limit. Then there was the other story of the driver who was fined for leaving his window down just a few centimeters on a hot day – all of these stories can be found in our last e-mail update, on our News/Updates pages.

On top of that, we have the introduction of the VLAD – or anti-bikie laws – and things have gone from bad to worse. Now, we’re 100% supportive of police and government efforts to reduce “real” crime – theft, rape, murder etc. – and those crimes should be stopped whether they are committed by “bikies” or anyone else in the community. For the government to use the general population’s negative view of “bikie gangs” to bring in completely unlawful and Un-Constitutional laws, however, is simply unacceptable.

We have seen no reports that suggest that serious crime has been reduced in QLD and, instead, we have had numerous reports of completely innocent motorists being stalked and abused as a result of these new laws. This motorist has been pulled over 21 times since these new laws came in - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TMOiMopMCU  Now, if he is truly a “criminal”, why hasn’t he been arrested, gone to court and been convicted and been put in jail – there is simply no excuse for this kind of police harassment.

As we explained in recent e-mail updates, we remind our Members that the Supreme Court has already ruled that the Police do not have the lawful authority to randomly pull you over and, furthermore, if you do decide to pull over for police, or if you are questioned by them, you simply ask them if you are under arrest or if you are free to go. They cannot arrest you for no reason – if they do, you will bring a huge civil case against them – and therefore, you are either free to go, without answering their questions, or you are arrested and then do not have to say anything. There are further details of these Supreme Court cases on our Updates membership website - www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/

Things have become so insane that they are now raiding completely social motorcycle clubs such as the Vietnam Veterans Motorcycle Club - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtO1f4AeIqA What’s next, are they going to start booking posties on their bikes because they wear Australia Post patches on their uniforms when they ride to deliver our mail!!!

We are hopeful that this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVdXiRBfDhU&feature=youtu.be – however, will quickly bring about an end to these ridiculous laws and Campbell Newman and Jarrod Bleijie will be forced to direct the police to return to standard criminal investigation tactics to catch all criminalswhether they are bikies or not – and stop harassing completely innocent motorists!

- Yet another council punished for pursuing ridiculous parking fines

Late last year we reported that the Bayside Council in Victoria were ordered to pay $1,500 in legal costs over their belligerent pursuit of an unjust and unlawful parking fine - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/bayside/bayside-council-to-pay-1500-in-legal-costs-over-parking-fine-furore/story-fngnvli9-1226788444367  We urged people in that area to write and complain to their council for wasting their hard earned money on the pursuit of such a ridiculous and un-winnable fine.

Well, now it’s happened again. This time, the Knox City Council has been caught spending thousands of dollars again, pursuing a ridiculous, unjust and un-winnable parking fine. You can read the full details here - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/east/knox-council-spends-thousands-to-prosecute-upwey-father-over-141-parking-fine/story-fngnvlxu-1226799108968 - and you will note that not only did they have to cover their own legal fees but also had to pay the motorist $500 in costs.

One of the most important points that we would like to make is that this motorist represented himself. As the article details, he “faced off” against a trained lawyer for 2 days and comprehensively beat the lawyer and got costs awarded in his favour as well.

If there is anyone out there that still believes that it is “too hard” to challenge fines or “you can’t beat the lawyers” or any such thing, please understand that you can win and it happens all the time – but you have to stand up and challenge the fine first to have any chance of defeating it. The moment you give in and blindly “pay up” it’s all over.

So, if you, or anyone you know, is yet to get their own copy of our invaluable, licence saving e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” – which details everything you need to know to successfully challenge a fine, in simple to follow, step-by-step instructions, then please go to our E-Book Membership’s page – and join up now.

And please, if you missed it, go back to the last sentence in that story and read those figures because they really do say it all – 5288 tickets were issued but only 754 tickets were challenged, that’s only 14%. The stupid thing is almost 50% of those who actually challenged their fines were successful – imagine what the figures would be if everyone challenged every fine they received – that would put an end to council revenue raising once and for all.

Just think, if the council had to pay thousands of dollars to prosecute every fine that was challenged and, even if only half of those cases were successful, the council would be out by around $10 million (2,500 cases x $4,000 legal fees per case) – they simply couldn’t do it after the first thousand tickets were challenged – and this applies to all fines, parking fines, red light camera fines, speeding fines etc.

Please, we must get the message out there that all motorists must challenge every fine they get – if they did, the system would collapse in about a week and the various governments would be forced to look at implementing the various strategies that we detail on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - and genuinely make our roads safer and more enjoyable for all motorists.

- All council rates are illegal

Whilst we’re on the subject of councils, we sent a few e-mails out last year asking if people were interested in finding out more about the “big picture” – things like the New World Order, Banking Fraud, personal tax being voluntary etc.

We had an overwhelming positive response to this request and we have been working away with various groups in the background, trying to put together a one-stop place for all our Members and Subscribers to become fully informed about all areas of their “rights”, not just traffic fines.

Well, one of the most requested topics that we were asked about was council fines. Now, as we have explained in our e-book, local councils are not recognized under the Commonwealth Constitution and therefore, they have no lawful right to issue fines – which is one of the reasons so many people are successfully challenging council issued parking fines – see section above.

Similarly, local councils are not lawfully entitled to demand rates either. We have been researching this area for a while now and this website - http://www.truthology.org.au/index.php/posts/346-council-rates-are-illegal-in-australia - has a very comprehensive, yet easy to understand explanation of why that is the case.

We urge you to read over this and give us your feedback on whether you would like access to more of this information or not – on the understanding that it would be provided on a separate website with its own set up and Membership etc.

As it currently stands, we receive 300+ e-mails a day so we simply do not have the time available to be answering questions on topics outside of the Aussie Speeding Fines realm, however, if there is enough interest, we would be happy to put something together with some of the other groups that we are currently working with, to make this sort of information available to the general public.

We expect to get a lot of e-mails in response to this so please be patient with us when waiting for a reply and again, we welcome feedback on these other topics but please keep questions that require an actual response limited to unjust and unlawful traffic fines.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

People have only just really returned from their holiday break and already we have received new e-mails detailing success with our system.

We just got this e-mail through from a Member in Victoria who successful challenged a red light camera fine and had it withdrawn – without the matter actually to court.

God bless you folks at Aussie Speeding Fines.

I've been contesting a fine for $280 for a red light camera at the intersection of Warrigal Rd & North Rd Oakleigh (which then some how miraculously turned into a speeding fine).

Bought your e-book, read it thoroughly and highlighted all the info I needed. Sent letters, opted for the court date and was waiting for the court date before contacting you for some finer points to stand by while in the dock but today, just over a year later, I have received my 'Infringement Withdrawal Notice' in the mail.

I love you guys, keep up the great work.

All the best,

Euan – Vic.

This testimonial highlights a point that we stress the importance of enough – just because you elect to have a matter go to court, it does not mean that it will actually progress that far. In fact, if you read through our pages and pages of testimonials, you will see that cases are withdrawn before they go to court far more often than you would think.

Please remember that there are plenty more e-mails like that on our Testimonial’s pages - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - and many of you will note that our old page has now grown to four full pages and continues to grow because we regularly receive stories of success, just like this, from our Members.

5 January, 2014
2014 is the year that will make us or break us!

Happy New Year!

We trust this e-mail finds you well and that you have all enjoyed some kind of a break over the Christmas/New Year period. We know some are lucky enough to have an extended break whilst most are heading back to work this coming Monday.

In any event, we hope you are as well rested as can be and are fired up and ready to make a real impact on 2014 just as we are.

While we would generally like to share some really positive and inspiring words to start the year, the reality is that we are in dire straights. As you will see with the contents of this e-mail, things have gone completely out of control over the last few weeks of last year and the first week of this year – so much so that it really is do or die this year for all motorists if they have any chance of reclaiming their rights.

So, take a deep breath, make sure you have set aside some time to read this e-mail thoroughly and we trust that the following inspires and empowers you to take some decisive action this year!

- Insanity in Queensland, heading to the State you live in soon

We have received some absolutely outrageous media articles from QLD over the Christmas/New Year period that clearly demonstrate how completely out of control unjust and unlawful traffic fines are in Australia now and why we simply must fight back!

The first is about a motorist who was fined for doing just 1km/h over the arbitrarily posted speed limit - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/townsville-man-fined-146-for-doing-1kmh-over-speed-limit/story-fnihsrf2-1226792203056 - yes, you read that correctly – just 1km/h over!

Sure, they withdrew the fine later but why put a completely innocent motorist through all that hassle, stress and trouble in the first place!

The second article, also from QLD, details how a man was fined for leaving his window down just a few centimeters on a hot day - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/brisbane-motorist-fined-for-leaving-car-window-slightly-down-on-hot-day/story-fnihsrf2-1226793936291

This is pure insanity!

How much worse are you going to allow things to get before you fight back?

Every day we hear people say “It’s too hard to fight back” or “I can’t be bothered, I’ll just pay it.” – the reason things have become as bad as they are is because people before us kept saying these same things,. These agencies saw how easy it was to extract money from motorists and have continued to find ridiculous new ways of doing so ever since because people just give in and “pay up”!

Well, enough is enough – if not for yourself then please, do it for your children – take action now and fight back against unjust and unlawful fines so that those that come after us are not forced to deal with ridiculous fines or ones that even worse – if that’s even possible – than the ones detailed above!

Please see the next section for details of what steps you can take to put an end to this madness – for our generation and the next.

- How to put an end to this madness

As we explain on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - traffic fines are a one billion dollar  a year industry for these agencies and they are not just going to give that up willingly – we have to fight back to stop it.

The only way to do that is to get everyone to fight back against every unjust and unlawful fine they receive because, once the money stops rolling in – and, better still, rolls back out to us in the form of costs when we successfully challenge wand defeat these fines - then they will have to take notice of us and make some real changes.

The good news is that it is now easier than ever before to successfully challenge your fines. With all of the detailed, step-by-step information in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” – there is simply no excuse not to fight back. We show you exactly what you need to do to successfully challenge every fine you get.

So, if you’re not yet an e-book Member or you know someone who is yet to join up then please go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and join up straight away.

Now, in the past, we have heard people say “Oh, I told my mates about it and they are going to see how my fight goes first then they’re going to try themselves.” Well, our system has now been proven many times over to work just as we say it does so there is simply no excuse for waiting any longer.

2014 is our eighth year of operation! Despite numerous attempts to shut us down and/or discredit us, we are bigger and stronger than ever. We have over 21,000 Members and Subscribers on our database, we have over 3,000 Facebook Members and we have thousands of testimonials spread over 4 pages proving that our information works!

Agencies like Civic Compliance Victoria have even had to change their paperwork because of us and the tens of thousands of motorists that are now fighting back against their unjust and unlawful fines. That’s the kind of impact we’re having out there.

The proof is in the numbers – we simply would not still be here with these sort of figures if our information didn’t work. So, don’t wait any longer, grab a copy of our e-book before you get a fine so that you are fully informed and prepared for when the inevitable happens. And remember, you have a full 30 days to read through all of our information anyway and verify for yourself that it is everything we say it is and more, otherwise, we’ll give you a full refund – we simply can’t be any fairer than that!

And, if you already have our e-book, please help us spread the word to other motorists who have somehow missed all of our promotion and information over the last 7 years and see the Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards section below to order your cards and stickers.

Finally, if you really want to be pro-active then please check out the video in the section below and help us spread it out to every cop in Australia.

- Incredible video that should be shared far and wide

We came across an amazing video from a woman in the US who has posted a personal message to all law enforcement personnel. Whilst there are some specific US references, the principles of this video apply equally to every police and sheriff’s officer here in Australia and we urge you not only to watch it but to pass it on far and wide.

You can view the video by going to this page - http://www.josietheoutlaw.com/ - and scrolling towards the bottom, under videos and click the link that says “Message to Police”. You can also view the video directly via this link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg  We urge you to make a small donation to Josie to encourage her and let her know that we fully support people who have the guts to stand up and fight back and we hope that her efforts inspire and empower you to do the same in your own lives.

In addition to making our own donation to Josie - for the reasons outlined above – (we believe people should be encouraged and rewarded when they stand up for themselves and others) - we are looking into having an Aussie version of this same message made in the coming months and we will be sure to let you know when that is available.

In the meantime, please be sure to forward this e-mail – making sure you remove the un-subscribe links at the bottom first so no-one accidentally removes you from our mailing list – or, at the very least, forward on a link to the video above to all of your contacts. We also encourage you to share it around on Facebook, Twitter and the like and our goal is to ensure that every law enforcement officer in Australia sees this video and decides where they draw their line!
