2015 News/Updates

18 December 2015
Our final official e-mail update for the year - Merry Christmas!

We want to start off this final e-mail update for the year by thanking all of our Members and Subscribers for all of their support over the past 12 months. Our website and our the quality of our information has grown incredibly over the past 8 and a half years that we have been operating and we couldn’t have done it without you so, a huge “Thank You” to you all.

We have a lot to get through in this week’s update so would like to get straight into it and we look forward to achieving even greater success in 2016 – in addition to the stories we have included for you below - so, let’s get straight into it ….

- Details of our 25% off Christmas promotion

First and foremost, as a reward to everyone for all their support over the past 12 months and to assist those who may be new to our website and our information, we want to remind everyone about our special 25% off Christmas promotion that we are currently running through until Christmas Eve.

As this story details - http://para-legal.org.au/parking-fines/police-say-all-drivers-even-those-headed-off-road-can-expect-to-be-checked/ - the police are out in force this year, to collect as much revenue as possible – even off-road – so we want to make our licence-saving information as accessible to as many motorists as we possible can.

So, from now until Christmas 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 6 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. 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!

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 car 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 the normal price, 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 all orders are sent out via Express Post so, as long you place your order over this weekend, you will almost certainly still receive our invaluable information in time for Christmas. And, speaking of which, what a perfect Christmas present to get for a friend, family member or work colleague – why waste money on something that will be forgotten about in a week when you can invest in a gift that will be treasured and appreciated for lifetime!

Remember, the more people that have our information and use it to fight back against unjust and unlawful fines, the more quickly we will bring about some real changes. To see what sort of changes we have already had a role in bringing about, please be sure to refer to the next section below.

- Some great achievements we have helped create in 2015

People used to think that challenging fines was “too hard” or “cost too much” and, thankfully, due to our on-going e-mail updates and, of course, the information in our e-book – http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – people are finally starting to realize that is simply not true.

As a result, we have had more people challenge their fines this year than ever before, which is really great news. And, even better news is, that, as a result of so many people challenging their fines, we have managed to play a role – at least in some small part – to some really positive changes.

One of the biggest changes that people in Victoria noticed this year was how the private corporation that has been authorised to use the Trademark “Civic Compliance Victoria” has A) has to actually start including the Trademark sign on their paperwork – which proves that they are just a private corporation, and, B) has had to actually change the wording of their form letters to address the huge number of people now successfully using the ASF 3 step process, that is detailed in chapter 3 of our e-book.

We actually kicked off hearing about some positive changes around this time last year with an article in The Age newspapers, which reported on the fact that the speed cameras that were deactivated on the West Gate Bridge – because they were proven to be flawed and faulty – were starting to rust away! You can read the full article here - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/deactivated-west-gate-speed-cameras-gradually-rust-20141211-1257n1.html - and we love reading stories like this! You have to obviously ask yourself, if permanent cameras that are fixed to a solid steel and concrete structure are proven to be inaccurate and affected by vibrations and the like then what hope do cameras fixed to a single pole or, worse still, mobile cameras that have very flimsy fixtures and fittings, have of being accurate! The fact is, of course, that they aren’t!

Then, there was the story from NSW where the government had to spend a further $20 million to help clear the backlog with the court system. Currently, only about 5% of people actually challenge their fines and ask for them to go to court - just imagine what would happen if 25% or 50% of people did that – the court system would come to a grinding halt in a matter of weeks!

Do, we need courts? Yes, of course we do, for real criminal matters. If the courts became backlogged because people were challenging their fines then the powers-that-be would have to admit that those fines are not “real” criminal offences and stop pursuing them as such. Again, you can read more about that story, via this link - http://www.skynews.com.au/news/politics/state/2015/12/06/-20m-package-to-cut-nsw-court-backlog.html – and note how simple it is to clog up the court system if we just get people to act collectively,

Be sure to pay particular attention to the statement by Attorney-General, Gabrielle Upton that, 'Delays put victims through undue stress, make it harder for witnesses to recall key details and strain the resources of the justice system.” In most States, the current time frame between the date of an offence being committed and the date that a case is actually heard in court averages out at around 18 months – just think how long that would stretch out to if more people simply challenged their fines! And, you only have to read through a few of our Testimonials pages - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - to see just how many people have successfully dragged their cases out for a year or two and then had witnesses fail to turn up because they had changed jobs or left that department etc. As we try and explain to people, the minute you pay a fine, you have lost, that’s it, it’s all over but if you challenge your fines, there are just so many possibilities for successfully beating it, it’s not funny.

And, just last month, there was a brilliant story from Channel 7 news which uncovered sneaky and subversive tactics being implemented in NSW in order to try and raise as much revenue as possible. You can see the full story here – https://www.facebook.com/7newssydney/videos/1140112026012929/ - and although this is really a minor breach of the “rules” – and a lot of other States don’t even have the requirements for signage warning of speed cameras ahead - you can read through excerpts from the manufacturers training manuals that clearly admit to there being “too many possibilities for error/interference to mention!” in the latter chapters of our e-book, which are, quite obviously, far more serious breaches again.

It is great that the people being interviewed admit that the road toll is increasing and that there are clearly problems with the current system because that is the first step to changing things! The fact that the Auditor-General has been prompted to “review the entire system” means that all our Member and Subscribers should be proud of what we have collectively achieved this past year.

There was actually a follow up story done just a few days ago - https://au.news.yahoo.com/video/watch/30363002/mobile-speed-cameras-book-around-800-drivers-a-day-and-collect-more-than-1million-a-month-in-fines/#page1 – and the giovernment had to make numerous changes to their signs and vehicles because so many people were frustrated by them and were challenging them.

If we can spread the word around and inspire even more people to challenge their fines next year, we can expect even greater changes in 2016!

After all, just last week, the RACV in Victoria – the State with more fines and lower tolerances than any other State - have called to have the State’s most lucrative red light camera turned off - https://au.news.yahoo.com/video/watch/30383639/calls-to-switch-off-states-most-lucrative-red-light-camera/#page1  For the RACV to get involved, it means that a lot of average, everyday motorists are getting “fed up” and that’s great news as far as we’re concerned because that is what will cause changes to be made.

- Some more “interesting” stories

Sadly, it’s not all good news though. Whilst some people in the media are starting to get the message, that speed alone has almost nothing to do with crashes, like this story explains – http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/ockhamsrazor/why-speed-isn't-the-only-factor-in-the-road-toll/6831300 - not everyone is that informed and educated.

The crash statistics sheet on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - details that “speed” is actually only a factor in about 5% of accidents. And, whilst the governments and media keep crapping on about “Speed Kills” and “Every K over is a Killer”, we have some very simple and straight forward strategies outlined on that same webpage, that will almost certainly make our roads safer and more enjoyable for all road users.

But, sadly, instead, the media continues to allows idiots like the so-called “road safety camera commissioner” get on the air - https://audioboom.com/boos/3894605-the-road-safety-camera-commissioner-joins-neil-mitchell-in-studio - and make ridiculous suggestions that introducing double demerit points in Victoria – which already sees more fines issued than any other State – is going to somehow make it safer than other States, despite that same principle not actually working in those other States – that is just pure insanity!!!

Thankfully, one of our Members recently sent us this article - http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2003/11/13/1068674314231.html - which explains, in detail, even more reasons why speed cameras “get it wrong”. As we mentioned in the section above there is literally an endless list of technical arguments that you have at your disposal to defend against any claim or charge based on a speed detection device – incorrectly sized piezo strips, lack of compliance with s10 of the NMA, lack of tracking history, flawed MD5 algorithm, interference issues, incorrect setup and use etc. etc – all of which are detailed, in simple to understand terms, in our comprehensive, 85 page e-book.

As the story at the start of this section details, the focus has to be moved away from “speed” and returned to driving safely for the conditions but, whilst the governments continue to make a billion dollars a year from, mostly, speeding fines, they will never make any real changes. Conversely, if we can get enough people to challenge their fines and stop the money rolling into the government coffers then we have every chance of bringing about some great changes.

Please be sure to read this study from Montana, where they introduced daytime speed limits and road fatalities increased dramatically. You can read the full story here - https://www.motorists.org/press/montana-no-speed-limit-safety-paradox/ It is quite a detailed article and certainly well worth the read to see what is possible for us to achieve here in Australia, once we remove the ridiculous focus on “speed”.

- 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. We understand this e-mail is getting a bit long so we have just included the most powerful one for you.

This is from a Member who successfully had a speeding fine withdrawn after using our 3 step process. Whilst this process can sometimes involve a bit of mucking around, when you consider how little it cost to send a few letters and make a few phone calls - and keep in mind how much he saved on not paying the fine – it is obviously well worth doing and just goes to show that our information really does work, just as we say it does!

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to give you an update on the saga I've been dealing with over a couple of speeding fines that I received in April of this year.

To cut a long story short, my last contact with CCV was to say that I wanted to have the matter dealt with in court. They ignored my request and continued to send me late reminder notices. I called them up and told them that i had already requested to have the matter heard in court and that their continued letters were unlawful harassment which i would be raising in court as well.

First they tried to say that they had not received anything from me requesting a court hearing. I told them that this was rubbish and that I had a mail delivered receipt (registered post) proving otherwise. After a lot of back and forth and being out on hold for a while, they magically "found" my letters.

The lady I spoke to then tells me that they're invalid because I requested a court hearing on a letter rather than filling in the back of the infringement notice. I politely told her that her information was incorrect and that I was recording our conversation for use as evidence in court. She tried to argue the point until I asked to speak to her supervisor. She put me on hold and when she came back, she tells me that I was right and that electing to go to court in writing is perfectly fine.

That was 2 months ago and I've since been waiting to receive my court summons. That is, until the other day when I received two letters from them. Both saying that after a review of the matter, no further police action would be taken against me. I had to laugh. After 8 months of bluff and threats from them and me preparing for court, they decide to drop the matter!

What an anti climax! hahaha

Just wanted to say thanks for all your help and guidance guys! Massive thumbs up! Without finding out about you, Ii would have just bent over and reluctantly let them have their way with me and then stumbled away in shame when they were done! :D 

Cheers,

Wafi - Vic

4 November 2015
The latest important news from almost every State in Australia!

Sorry, it’s been while since our last e-mail update, we have been very busy working with the Know Your Rights group and updating our seminar content in preparation for their major, end-of-year event in Melbourne on the 28th of November – please see the Learn more about your rights at our upcoming Melbourne seminar section further down this e-mail.

In any event, we have obviously received a huge number of stories and articles over the past month or so and we can’t possibly address them all but we have included the most important and significant ones for you below and you will note that we have news stories from almost every State in the country – and we even have an interesting story for our Members “across the ditch”, in NZ.

So, without further ado, let’s get straight into it ….

- Crazy number of fines being issued in Melbourne

We have explained over the last 8 and a half years that we have been running the Aussie Speeding fines website that there are more traffic fines issued in Victoria than any other State. Victoria  has the lowest speed tolerances and they have more “reasons” to issue motorists there with infringement notices than any other State does. Speeding fines, specifically, are completely out of control there.

This latest article - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/news/more-than-50000-fines-issued-at-four-speed-camera-sites-in-three-months/news-story/29ed6a6c7e25dd9803df101fd8c6bd92 - details how over 50,000 fines have been issued from just four cameras, in only three months!

As we explain in our segment at the Know your Rights seminars, We, The People, have not only a right, but an obligation, to fight unjust and unlawful laws and any legislation that suggests that more than 50,000 motorists, over just 4 small areas, in only a 3 month period, are committing “criminal offences” is clearly an “unjust law” and it must be changed!

The simple fact is that these cameras are simply a business that generates revenue for the Victorian government and this is proven by the fact that, as the article above reports, the Vic government raised over $83 million in that short, 3 month timeframe. You can check out the comments below the article for the appropriate responses to the Governments ridiculous, false and misleading claim that they “would be very happy to receive no revenue at all from speed cameras as it would mean people have heeded the message.”

As always, despite the insane number of fines issued, there is not a single report of any accidents at any of those sites. So, either the speed limit has been set too low and/or “speed” really has nothing to do with accidents – after all, how can 50,000+ motorists be fined for “speeding” yet not a single accident occurred id “Speed really is the biggest killer on our raods”?

- South Australian motorists being unfairly fined

Obviously, unjust and unlawful fines aren’t limited to just Victorian motorists, in fact, they are issued in every State and Territory but at least in SA the RAA is admitting the fact.

This article - http://www.raa.com.au/community-and-advocacy/fixed-speed-cameras?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Public+Affairs+October+E-news+-+S2&utm_content=Public+Affairs+October+E-news+-+S2+Version+A+CID_af34b79bd9b2e3c84340453c7312a89a&utm_source=Email%20marketing%20software&utm_term=Motorists%20being%20unfairly%20fined%20on%20SE%20Freeway – from their website, is urging the SA government to fix the issues with poor signage around some of the SE Freeway cameras.

What is most telling about this article is the fact that so many motorists are being booked when the variable speed limit is reduced to just 2/3 of the “usual” limit. The RAA argues that many motorists are not noticing the reduced speed limit and some might even argue that “tactic” borders on being entrapment.

Once again, we want to make it clear that any legislation that causes 25,000+ motorists to be fined for “criminal offences” when signage is unclear is unjust and must be challenged and changed.

- Western Australians are waking up to the truth

Thankfully, those in the far west of the country are waking up to the reality of these unjust fines and laws and are starting to speak up against them.

First and foremost, a WA Member of Parliament, Nigel Hallett, has raised his concerns about the lack of adequate signage around areas that have speed cameras and has stated that speed cameras have simply become a “revenue raising exercise”.

You can read more in this article - http://thenewdaily.com.au/news/2015/04/23/politician-slams-speed-cameras-revenue-raising/

And, following on from that, a Perth lawyer, Terry Dobson, has questioned the reliability of speed detection devices and has stated – just as we have for the past 8 and a half years – that speed detection devices are not “infallible pieces of equipment”.

He goes onto say how concerned he is about the number of people who are blindly paying incorrect fines. His statement that, “What concerns me is how many people have received dodgy infringement notices and just paid them because they trust the authorities” mirrors exactly what we have been trying to get across through our website and our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – for many years now.

The article goes onto to explain that the WA Police themselves admit that “human error” has caused other fines to be withdrawn, as have “other circumstances that impact on prosecutorial aspects of the incidents”. Basically, they admit that there are all kinds of errors and issues and that is why we urge everyone to challenge every unjust and unlawful fine they receive.

Please be sure to read that full story here - http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/perth-lawyer-questions-reliability-of-wa-police-speed-cameras/news-story/b6f744469d33e02579108dd16b7759d1

- Important news for QLD motorists

We came across two very significant stories from QLD over the past month or so and the first ones relates to the sheer number of motorists there who have had their licences unjustly and unfairly suspended, with many people not even realizing.

If you live in QLD, please be sure to read this important article from the Gold Coast Bulletin - http://www.goldcoastbulletin.com.au/news/traffic-reports/small-fines-can-mean-suspended-licence-system-breakdown-causes-80000-unpaid-fines/story-fnl6qvfc-1227588805779

The article details that almost 21,000 licences “have been suspended in the past 12 months due to non-payment of fines” yet this is completely contrary to Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act, which dictates “That all fines and forfeitures of particular persons before conviction is illegal and void.” We cover this all-important section in greater detail in Chapter 3 of our e-book but, in essence, if your fine hasn’t gone to court and you haven’t been convicted then any forfeiture of your right to drive – ie. suspension of your licence – is illegal and void.

The article also mentions that many of these licence suspensions result from failure to pay toll fines. We urge anyone who didn’t read the article last year, when we reported on it, about the Gold Coast man who has successfully avoided paying tolls by correctly challenging them, to do so via this link - 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

The second story that we came across is about the fixed cameras that failed to correctly identify over 3,700 vehicles that were allegedly detected “speeding”. You can read the full story here - http://www.couriermail.com.au/questnews/logan/motorists-beat-the-fixed-m1-speed-camera-at-loganholme-and-avoid-speeding-fines/story-fn8m0u8i-1226280677992

Once again, of far greater concern is the 600 motorists a day and the 36,000 drivers “detected speeding” in just 2 months. As we stated in some of the sections above, any legislation that causes that many average, everyday motorists to be issued with fines for “criminal offences” is clearly unjust legislation and needs to be challenged and changed.

- Even New Zealand is subject to speed limit issues

As we mentioned at the start of this e-mail update, we even received a story from New Zealand which shows that they have had their own issues with speed limits over there. This article - http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11484594 – from the New Zealand Herald, reveals that as many as 25 councils may have had invalid speed limits for up to 11 years!

So, what did their government do to rectify that?

They brought in retrospective legislation to deal with it because they could have been up for a fortune in compensation for those who chose to challenge their fines based on this monumental stuff up!

Now, the reality is that New Zealanders should probably be happy with this situation because, if the councils had done their jobs and “reviewed” the speed limits when they were supposed to, they probably would have artificially lowered them, as they have done here in Australia.

The main concern for us, once again, is the 50,000 to 80,000 motorists a month that were issued with speeding tickets. If that many motorists are being issued with speeding fines – especially considering that the speed limits at those times weren’t even valid – then there is clearly something wrong with “the law” and it needs to be changed.

We really hope that everyone that is reading this e-mail is starting to get this important message now. The various governments are not going to change things whilst they are still raking in a billion dollars a year – or they will make changes, they’ll just find ways to issue more fines.

The only way to stop them and to bring in some of the true life-saving changes that we cover on our Vision for the future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - is to hit them where it hurts – their back pocket. We must act collectively and we must challenge every unjust and unlawful fine that we receive and we must fulfill our obligation to fight unjust laws.

- Great news regarding successful challenges against parking fines in NSW

Most of the stories in this e-mail have related primarily to speeding fines but, as we have said a number of times throughout this e-mail update, we need to challenge all unjust and unlawful fines.

Thankfully, it appears as though motorists in NSW are doing just that. This story - http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/08/03/19/50/nsw-drivers-fightback-against-unfair-parking-fines-and-reveal-how-to-beat-the-system - from Channel 9 news, details how Sydney motorists are successfully challenging a huge number of parking fines.

There are a couple of very important figures to take note of in this story:

The first, once again, is that 1.3 million parking tickets – “or a fine every 25 seconds” – was issued to NSW motorists. Again, remember the “we have an obligation to fight back against unjust laws” point that we have made many times throughout this e-mail, and the concept that “any legislation that causes 1.3 million motorists to be issued with fines for “criminal offences” must be an unjust law and must be challenged”.

And, the second figure is that almost 45,000 people, put of the 133,218 that challenged their fines – which is about 35% - were successful in having the fine withdrawn. The problem is that only 10% of people bothered to challenge their fines!!!

Challenging your fines is the key and we don’t know how to make that any clearer. Of those 133,218 people that challenged their fine, obviously, not all of them were ASF Members but they still chose to challenge their fines without our information and almost 35% of those people were still successful.

So, just image if 100% of the 1.3 million people who received fines were ASF Members and challenged their fines as well – the whole system would come to a grinding halt in about a week!

So please, if you’re not yet a Member or you know someone who isn’t, go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and join up now.

And, whether you choose to be an informed and educated Member by signing up for our e-book or not, please urge everyone you know to challenge every fine they get because, the simple fact is that every time someone simply “pays up” they are supporting and reinforcing the current corrupt system and sending a message to the government to keep sending out their unjust and unlawful fines and people will keep paying them!

If that is not the message you want to send then you need to take action and do something about it.

As you will see from the Latest Testimonials and Feedback section a little further down, we have received more stories of success from people who have used our information to defeat the fines that they have challenged.

- 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.

The first is from a Member who successfully had a speeding fine dismissed after the camera operator failed to turn up as a witness – something that happens more often than you would think and that you obviously cannot benefit from if you just “pay up” rather than challenging your fine in court. What’s really great about this e-mail is that not only did he win his case but he was awarded costs as well – image what would happen in everyone did that!

Hi Guys,

A personal testimonial from today...

I attended Rockingham court (W.A.) armed with a multitude of defence tactics using the E-book etc to defend a speeding fine, 107kph in 100kph zone.

'Sadly' I was not able to put my planned defence to use as the "witness" [speed camera operator] did not turn up.  The magistrate adjourned for a short period of time pending his appearance which continued as a 'no show'...probably too busy flashing other unsuspecting drivers.

After reconvening the prosecution let it be known that in addition to a lack of witness they also had "issues with the chain if evidence".

The Magistrate announced that I be "acquitted", after which I drew attention to costs incurred and that I had prepared a Stat Dec documenting my expenses backed up by copies of invoices etc - I actually forgot some trivial items.

The prosecution checked over my documentation and agreed to reasonable costs after which the documentation was passed to the Magistrate. He also looked it over and agreed it was reasonable and directed that my costs be paid....a total $747.48 (largely being return fares from Brisbane, hire car and estimated fuel costs).

I walked outside the courthouse to see a number of cars with parking tickets and took a few photos for keepsake - only to be challenged by a lady in one of the cars "Are you the parking inspector?" to which I strongly replied in the negative!  After a few minutes chat where I pointed out the 'facts of life' I left her with your web site address.

(I've previously successfully challenged Brisbane City Council over two parking fines plus a tunnel toll fee and it's associated non-payment penalties, again using the E-book!)

Keep up the good work!

Cheers

Mark – W.A.

Our second is from a Member who successfully had 15 parking tickets withdrawn, again, because he chose to pursue them in court rather than just blindly “pay up”, which is something he clearly points out himself, in his e-mail.

Hi,

I wanted to post Court results regarding some parking tix.

A Melbourne council issued me approx 15 parking tix whilst parked validly with a permit. I wrote the letters (ASF) and got the anticipated rejections. So took them to Court (and stalled and obfuscated as much as possible to cause the Courts hassle for prosecuting these unlawful fines.

I asked (under UCC 1.308 & UCC 1-103.6) for the injured party and verified complaint, amongst other things. This was deferred to a later date. At this hearing, they withdrew the charges/tix before we started. 

I challenged the rest via email, and all were withdrawn.

The point I want to make (and wanted to post) is that, if I hadn’t challenged them, I would have paid and encouraged the bastards. So we have to challenge all tix.

Cheers

Adam – Vic.

Our third is from a Member who successfully defeated a parking fine without ever opening the letter! Remember, the minute you open a fine, you have already missed your first opportunity to beat it, which is why it is so important to have our e-book before you even receive a fine.

Hi Team,

Received a parking ticket for overstaying the sign in a one hour area and returned it to the Lilydale council with No Contract written across both sides

Eventually got a letter cancelling the fine and advising me not to do it again as they may not be as lenient again.

Cheers

John – Vic.

13 September 2015
The latest news and information from ASF and the media!

Well, it’s been just over a month since our last e-mail update and, not surprisingly, we have, once again, been absolutely inundated with e-mails and media articles in that time.

We have included some of the most important and relevant articles for you in the sections below and, as always, we urge you to take action now to fight back against this madness, before it’s too late.

To learn the latest strategies that the powers-that-be are now implementing and what you can do to protect yourself and your family, please read on .....

- Excellent article that puts everything into perspective

Before we get stuck into the latest techniques the governments are employing to rob us of our hard earned cash and control us through fear, we wanted to share an article with you that explains the way things should be.

This article – http://www.infowars.com/why-punish-people-for-speeding/ - really does make a lot of sense and we would urge you to read it before you move onto the sections below so that you have a clear picture of how things should be operating in a perfect world and what we, at Aussie Speeding Fines, are working towards.

You will note that this article directly mirrors what we have been saying in our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and on our Vision for the future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - for well over 8 years now!

How about we stop prosecuting people in “criminal” courts for matters that simply do not constitute a “crime” – remember, if there is no victim then there can be no crime. How about we start punishing people for having actual “accidents’ – after all, isn’t that what we are trying to stop! We have many ideas and strategies that we know will make our roads safer and more enjoyable to use but, whilst the governments continue to rake in over $1 billion a year from unjust and unlawful traffic fines, they will refuse to even look at our ideas, let alone implement them.

That’s why we need your help – so that you can learn about your rights and how to stand up for them and exercise them and, in doing so, inspire and empower others to do the same, so that soon, everyone challenges every fine they get and the money stops rolling into the government coffers. That is the only way we’re going to be able to bring about the sort of changes that are detailed in that article.

- It’s all about the money

A number of articles that we receive this week had one thing in common – they clearly showed that all the new speed cameras being installed are about one thing and one thing only – the money!

The first article was from the ACT and details all the excuses under the sun for more revenue raising cameras being installed - http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/drivers-warned-as-canberra-speed-camera-network-extended-20150828-gja0rz.html They even go as far as to quote completely baseless, fictitious figures such as “Speeding is a factor in one third of all fatal accidents on ACT roads.” Here’s a thought Canberra Times editor, instead of quoting these ridiculous figures that can never be verified, how about directing us to where you came up with those magical figures. After all, we provide the actual figures – which is that “speed” is a factor in just 5% of accidents - on our Vision for the Future page, under the Crash Statistics section - http://aussiespeedingfines.com/downloads/Crash_Statistics.xls -  including all the other similar figures and the study that verifies those figures.

Instead of just blindly regurgitating the government propaganda in a pathetic attempt to justify the on-going revenue raising by the government under the completely false and mis-leading guise of “road safety”, how about the media actually do some true investigation – our spokespeople are always available to help with research and to provide commentary.

And, sadly, it’s a similar story in Adelaide too, where this article – details how one camera has raked in almost $3 million in just 12 months! Of course, they talk about how it’s on a pedestrian crossing and they put photos of cute children at the top of the article to make you feel guilty about going 3 or 4 k’s over the speed limit that they freely admit has been arbitrarily lowered all to try and justify stealing another $3 million from motorists that have done nothing wrong!

The article then goes on to mention another camera – the highest revenue raiser in the State – that has earned the government a very nice $8 million in the last financial year, as well as detailing the millions of dollars raised from no less than 10 other cameras around the area.

How are these cameras still standing and operating? How is it that people allow this continue and, in the case of Canberra - from the story above - people are allowing the politicians that they elected to do their bidding, to install even more!

Have you all gone completely mad or are you just that dumbed down with the crap on TV that you can’t see what is going on around you???

Seriously, it’s time to turn off the idiot box and start taking action!!! Just think how many powerful letters you could write to the head of your State Police Force or your local MP, in the same time as it takes you to digest the drivel in just a single 1 hour (no basis in)“reality” TV show!

- Some new changes in Victoria

As any of you who are Members and/or regular readers of our e-mail updates will know, the team at Aussie Speeding Fines prides itself on being on the cutting edge of any new developments or changes that affect motorists in this fine country (pun intended).

Many of you from Victoria will recall that we reported on the new “super cameras” that Victoria Police were trying out to catch motorists who were on the phone or weren’t wearing seatbelts from as far as 700 metres away. We are happy to report that trial was not successful and they are now scrapping the use of those cameras.

You can read the full story, including the Road Safety Camera Commissioners ridiculous and untenable comment that the removal of these cameras “will invariably cost lives” via this link -  http://social-media-news.com/link/767249_victoria-police-scraps-super-camera-aimed-at-nabbing-motorists-with-mobiles-without-seatbelts

And, those of you who are E-Book Members, will know that there are certain conditions in which you can apply for leniency when you receive a fine and have that fine withdrawn with a single letter. We also reported, last year, on the fact that, in Victoria, that leniency request extended to being let off a fine for up to 15km/h over the limit, as long as you had not had a fine in the past 3 years.

Unfortunately, that is now being removed in Victoria in just one week’s time so please pass the details of this important change onto all Victorian drivers that you know. You can still apply for leniency for fines less than 10 km/h over and the full details of this new legislation change can be found on the Victoria Police website - http://www.police.vic.gov.au/content.asp?document_id=10369

As always, the best way to ensure that you are completely up to date with any important changes is to become both an E-Book Member - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and an Advanced Member - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Advanced-Membership-%252d-new-Members-area.html

- Some very telling articles

We received a few more articles that didn’t really fit under a specific heading, although the following three articles paint a very telling picture of what is going on in our motoring world right now.

The first is a follow up article on the Redflex scandal that we have reported on a number of times over the past year or so, as it has been unfolding. This latest article - http://www.9news.com.au/world/2015/09/03/16/31/australian-red-light-company-caught-up-in-chicago-bribery-allegations - shows just how much trouble they are in. The next step for Aussies is to complain to their representatives and stating that they don’t want our government t have anything to do with these criminals and that all Redflex cameras should be removed. After all, the police will claw back the proceeds of crime from anyone of us who does the “wrong” thing so why should this company be constantly rewarded for their illegal activities.

The second article shows that it really is “one rule for them and one rule for us” when it comes to the police. This article - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/officers-caught-in-road-law-breaches/story-e6freoof-1226133456822 - shows just how many police are breaking the very same road rules that they then try to enforce upon others. It shows that only about 1% of the police who are caught, clearly breaking the rules, are ever punished in any similar way to other “everyday” motorists, whilst most of them simply get off with “managerial guidance” – aka “a slap on the wrist”!

The statement by the Police Union President – suggesting that police are treated no differently to other motorists – clearly has absolutely no basis in reality and the fact that the media print that rubbish, in the very same article that proves it to be false and misleading, just shows you that they are all in bed together.

And, finally, there’s this article - http://blog.privatefleet.com.au/weird-stuff/im-getting-a-ticket-for-what/ - which really does paint a very clear picture of why traffic cops exist at all.

- And now, some good news

Thankfully, it’s not all bad news this week, in fact, quite the opposite, there have been a couple of very positive articles that have been released as well.

The first is from the Northern Territory and this article - http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/08/31/09/31/nsw-motorists-could-have-speeding-offences-overturned-as-court-faces-technicality - details the fact that the NT government will actually be extending their open speed limits as a direct result of the proof that higher speeds have little or no bearing on accidents.

It is really great to see that A) there are governments out there making sensible decision in regards to speed limits and speeding and B) that the mainstream media is actually reporting on this stuff – especially when you consider some of the rubbish they have published in the sections above.

What we need now is for all the governments to give responsibility back to the people and focus solely on dealing with those who don’t exercise that responsibility properly, rather than punishing people across the board for completely ridiculous and irrelevant breaches of some arbitrary State statutes!

And, the second article is even more positive. This article - http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/08/31/09/31/nsw-motorists-could-have-speeding-offences-overturned-as-court-faces-technicality - out of NSW, details yet another flaw with hand held speed detection devices.

In addition to the numerous arguments that we detail in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need To Know” - this article refers to yet another one of the many faults and flaws with the certification of these devices.

You need to keep in mind that, as Dr Richard Brittain – from the National Measurement Institute – has stated on many occasions, not a single speed detection device in Australia has been certified and tested pursuant to Section 10 of the National Measurement Act.

And, addition to the specific information noted as missing from the current certificates, those certificates also fail to note the ambient temperature at the time of testing, or the speeds at which the device was supposedly tested – both of which are required to be noted by the manufacturers of those devices.

When you add to all of that the fact that the “possibilities for error are too numerous to mention” – as is detailed, word for word, in the manufacturers Guidelines for use Manual - the lack of a “valid tracking history” and the fact that no “originating specifications” exist against which these devices can be tested, you can quickly see just how simple and straight forward it is to successfully challenge any fine that has been issued as a result of the use of one of these devices.

Please note that if you do not fully understand any of the arguments referred to above then you should sign up for a copy of our e-book ASAP  - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

We also have a heap of additional, advanced information, that goes above and beyond what we cover in our e-book, available on our Advanced Membership website - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ That website has links to download the manufacturers Guidelines for Use manual for every speed detection device currently being used in Australia, it contains numerous court cases that you can use to assist you in any case you may end up taking to court and it also provides detailed documentation that some of our more Advanced Members have used to achieve success in their cases too.

- Learn more about your rights at our upcoming seminars

As many of you know, we have been working closely with one of our founding Members, who now head’s up the Know Your Rights group. We were with them in Brisbane a few weeks ago and also in Sydney for their packed out, full day seminars which were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended.

Their next full day event is on in Perth on the 26th of September, which is just two weeks away. If you want to find out more about exactly what they cover at those life-changing seminars and/or to book your tickets, you can do so via their Seminar page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/

- Breaking News - Speed Camera causes yet another obvious accident!

We were just about to send this e-mail update out when we came across this story on the front page on NineMSN - http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/09/13/10/43/jeep-driver-crosses-median-strip-into-oncoming-traffic

Here you have yet another obvious example of a motorist braking – out of pure instinct – because he saw a camera which, when combined with the slippery surface of the road at the time, caused him to lose control and cross over to the other side of the road and hit a car.

You can clearly see, in the few seconds before the incident, that all the traffic is flowing along, very nicely, at whatever speeds those drivers were doing, and it is not until there is a speed camera thrown into the mix that an actual accident occurs.

This story is in direct alignment with the information that we have had up on our Petition to Remove Cameras page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - for some time now. We would urge you all to read through the studies and reports that have been conducted around the world and see how speed and red light cameras actually cause far more accidents than they ever prevent. Once you have read through that info, if you haven’t already done so, please be sure to sign the petition so we can have these insidious, destructive devices removed from our roads once and for all.

8 August 2015
It’s time to get serious – some very powerful articles plus our upcoming seminars!

Well, it’s been just over a month since our last e-mail update and, not surprisingly, we have been absolutely inundated with e-mails and media articles in that time.

We couldn’t possibly cover everything that we’ve been sent but we have put together a list of the most important stories for you below.

We’re going to get straight to the point this week so, if you want to find out the latest reasons why every motorists should be fighting every fine they receive, please read on .....

- Queensland police have gone insane!

By far and wide, the most reports we have had in the past month have been from QLD. Someone, somewhere, has “flipped a switch” and the police there have gone completely insane.

It all began with the removal of the warning signs around mobile speed cameras. Now, as motorists in other States know, this really isn’t a big deal because QLD was one of the few States that still even had those signs but it was obviously of concern to QLD motorists. You can read the full story here - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/queensland-mobile-speed-camera-warning-signs-to-be-removed/story-fntwpug1-1227438137970 - if you want to know more.

The points that people to really take note of are the $87 million worth of revenue generated by these cameras last year and how the removal of the warning signs just so happens to coincide with an increase in the cost of low-level speeding fines. As always, they make these baseless references to small amounts over the speed limit having some magical correlation to the “frequency and severity of crashes” but, asking them to prove these claims is, of course, something that they simply can’t do.

And that brings us to our second story where even Magistrates agree that these “low level” speeding fines are a joke and many are saying that they won’t enforce anything less than the 10% Australian Design Rule (ADR) standard. Now, before anyone jumps on us, yes, that standard was changed back in July of 2006 but, thankfully, some Magistrate’s seem to be respecting the old rules. You can read more here - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/opinion/comment-lower-speed-camera-tolerance-might-not-fly-in-court/story-fnihsr9v-1227320621690

Now, if you needed any further proof that speeding fines were purely about revenue raising, then please watch this short video from Channel 7 news in Brisbane - https://au.news.yahoo.com/video/watch/28930865/speed-camera-changes-you-need-to-know/?cmp=yfb#page1

The opening speech by QLD Police Inspector Hale states that 250 people are being detected for exceeding the speed limit every hour. Now, we’re sorry but if that many people are “speeding” then clearly the speed limit has been set too low – there can simply be no other valid argument! And, as we know, this is the case right around Australia – speed limits are being systematically reduced to entrap motorists and all but “force” them into the breaking ridiculously low limits so that the Police can issue more fines and raise more revenue.

“Catching” 1200 motorists in 3 hours shows that there is clearly something wrong with the way the system has been set up. Of course, from their point of view, it’s working brilliantly because they’re earning $1,000 a minute!!!

Now, we’re sorry, we really don’t know how to make it any clearer than this but any government that makes a law that 250+ people are breaking every hour needs to be booted out! There should be mass revolution in the streets, marches on the QLD Parliament offices and the like. How can you people sit on your arses and just allow this to continue!!!

And, if you’re offended by that comment then good because we are offended by the fact that we sit here, busting our arses virtually 24/7 trying to help people fight back against this corrupt system yet you – and we mean “you the masses” not “you personally reading this” – continue to sit there and allow your government to get away with this insanity.

There is a saying along the lines of, “I used to look at the world and wonder why someone didn’t do something to fix it, then I realised, “I am someone”!”

Remember too, that it is not the role of the government to ensure its citizens don’t fall into error, it is the role of each citizen to ensure that the government doesn’t fall into error. The governments have well and truly “fallen into error” if they make a law that 250 people per hour break!

So, you can sit there and be offended by this e-mail and click the unsubscribe button or, you can stand up and fight back against this insanity – we certainly hope, for the sake of your future and your children’s future, that you choose the latter.

- More QLD insanity

We wanted to break this section up into two parts, otherwise, it would have been too long for most people to read. So, following on from the section above, we also have a story out of QLD, where an e-mail surfaced stating that QLD Police have a ticket quota.

No-one is really surprised by that at all and we reported on a similar e-mail being sent out in South Australia last year but, the fact that it has surfaced and made it to the media is obviously of concern to the police. After all, if they can’t keep their secrets secret, what else do they botch up – like speed detection – on a regular basis!

Channel 9 did a great report on this story and really hammered the police – as well they should have – and you can view the video here - http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/07/20/19/44/queensland-police-under-fire-for-reportedly-issuing-officers-a-quota-for-traffic-fines As the lead in statement says, the whole system is being run like a business, which is exactly what it is!

Poor old Michael Keating is backpeddling furiously, suggesting that the e-mail could have been “better worded” but, for the rest of us living in the real world it was worded perfectly – it clearly spells out the fact that police are being used, by the State government to raise revenue to the tune of a minimum of 10 tickets per shift, per officer – period. If the Tour De France was run in reverse Mr Keating would be a prime candidate for the coveted yellow jersey!

And, as Ian Levers correctly states, “It is an absolute disgrace and the police should be out there protecting the community”. There is also a suggestion that morale within the QLD Police Force is “at its lowest ebb in a quarter of a century” - so, in the section above, we had a go at the average Aussie who continues to sit on his or her arse and allow this kind of thing to continue. So, now, we’re going to “have a go” at the police themselves and urge them to watch this career-defining video and make a choice - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg 

When are you going to take a stand and say “No” to blatant revenue raising?

When are you going to stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves?

When are you going to say “enough is enough” and give your bosses an ultimatum and say “If we aren’t given the true policing jobs that we signed up for – not blatant revenue raising under the false and misleading guise of “road safety” - we’re going to quit.”

If just one officer does it here or there, it will make very little impacts but if every officer around the country did it then the governments would have to take notice because there would be no-one left to collect their revenue for them and do all their dirty work!

Yes, we understand that it’s tough to fight back, it’s even tougher to walk away from a job or a career that you have dedicated years, maybe even decades, of your life to. But, you know what is even tougher? Dealing with the constant and never ending erosion of our freedoms, being controlled by the powers-that-be more and more every year and working longer and harder than ever before but getting nowhere because we are being taxed and fined at every turn.

So, whether you’re an average Aussie motorist or a policy enforcer – sorry, police officer – then you are still a human being, you still want the same fundamental rights and freedoms for yourself and for your family but, as the old saying goes, “if you’re not part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem”.

So, what are you going to do about it?

- Some important legal points

Okay, hopefully, after reading the first few sections, you are fired up to take action – which is great!

So, what can you do?

Obviously, the first thing we suggest that you do – police included – is to get a copy of our invaluable e-book, “Speeding fines, What You REALLY Need to Know”, which you can get via this link – http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

Now, people might question us at this point and ask “Why would you want the police to get the e-book, then they will know all the tricks.” The police already know all the “tricks” – they use them against motorists all the time – but our e-book doesn’t focus on any “tricks”, it focusses on “the law.” And, once the Police themselves get their head around the fact that they are actually breaking the law each and every time they issue a fine – see Section 8, Sub-Section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act – then they may be tempted to stand up and fight back or, better still, leave the force altogether, sooner rather than later.

Also, the sooner that motorists and police are on the same page about the law, the sooner we can bring about some real change, even if that means some short term pain for certain people who are unknowingly breaking the law. Remember, as they constantly tell us, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse”. Well, guess what, it applies to the Police and to Magistrates in exactly the same way as it applies to us!

One of the primary points that we make about all speed detection devices currently being used in Australia is that not a single one of them complies with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act 1960 and none of them have even been put up for pattern approval, let alone received it. Now, this fact has been verified by Dr Richard Brittain, the Chief Metrologist at the National Measurement Institute on a number of occasions over the past 8 years and, if you search through our various News/Updates pages - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2015-%252d-Current-News%7B47%7DUpdates.html – you will find copies of those e-mails.

Interestingly, since we started publishing those e-mails, someone at the NMI has uploaded this completely deceptive and misleading web page on their site - http://www.measurement.gov.au/measurementsystem/Pages/LegalMetrology.aspx Whilst their “notes” about speed detection being a function of the States is correct, their assertion about there being no requirement for speed measuring instruments to be pattern approved is a blatant lie!

Like this new page from the NMI, it has come to our attention that various State Police Forces are suggesting that there is actually no requirement for devices to be certified and tested pursuant to the National Measurement Act, however, WA Supreme Court Justice Owen ruled, in the matter of Breedon v Kongras, that; The language of section 10 is clear and unambiguous. Measurements taken for any legal purpose must be taken in accordance with that section and not in any other manner.  In my opinion s10 of the Act  was designed to establish a uniform national  procedure  for  obtaining measurements  required  for  legal purposes.”  That case is commonly know as the “WA Fisheries” case and is referred to in our e-book, the case has never been challenged or over-ruled and, as it is a Supreme Court case, it can be referred to in any court in Australia. You can download a complete copy of that case from the Downloads page on our Advanced Membership website - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/download.php

So, that handles any suggestion that a device doesn’t have to comply with the Act. Now, certain States, such as QLD and South Australia try and fool people into believing that their speed detection devices do, in fact, comply with the Act. SA Police are a little more subtle and simply state that their devices undergo “testing by NATA authorised workshops” - https://www.police.sa.gov.au/services-and-events/expiations/how-traffic-cameras-work - but the QLD Police blatantly lie and categorically state that “all calibration conducted conforms to the National measurement Act” - https://www.police.qld.gov.au/programs/roadSafety/infringement/camera.htm Again, as we noted above, not a single speed detection device currently being used in Australia complies with the Act!

Unfortunately for them, Section 19B(b) of the National Measurement Act - http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/nma1960222/s19b.html - states that, “A person shall not falsely represent that a measuring instrument is in accordance with a pattern so approved” The penalty for doing so is 60 penalty units and a Commonwealth  penalty unit is the equivalent of $170 so that’s $10,200 per offence – so, watch out QLD Police!

There is also a growing trend to punish people under blatantly unenforceable “owner onus” legislation which suggests that, because you are the owner of a vehicle, unless you can prove who committed an offence then you are taken to be guilty of it yourself. Now, apart from the fact that legal maxims dictate that one cannot be held accountable for or be found guilty of an offence that they can prove they did not commit, you are also afforded additional protection under privilege against self-incrimination - http://www.alrc.gov.au/publications/15.%20Privilege%3A%20Other%20Privileges/privilege-respect-self-incrimination-other-proceedings

At the end of the day, the police are required to prove their case against you “beyond a reasonable doubt” and, anyone who has read through our e-book will quickly understand, once you get your head around the multitude of arguments that you have available to you for any given case, if presented correctly, then proving anything against you beyond a reasonable doubt is all but impossible.

The points above are, of course, just the tip of the iceberg in regards to what we cover in our detailed, 85 page e-book so, if you want to learn more about your rights in regards to traffic fines, please be sure to order your copy now - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

- Learn more about your rights at our upcoming seminars

Speaking of learning about your rights, as many of you know, we have been working closely with one of our founding Members, who now heads up the Know Your Rights group. The group has a weekly internet radio show that anyone in the world can tune into via this link - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/ - which goes to air every Tuesday night from 8pm til 10pm AEST.

They also have podcasts of all of their shows available to download for free and, for those who like to listen to CDs in their car as they drive, they now have CD packs with all of their Podcasts – with all the music edited out – which you can also order from that same page.

In addition to all of that, as well as all the incredible free information that they have throughout their website - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/ - we’re sure that their information on Tax will be of interest to many people, especially at this time of year - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/tax/

They are also running seminars around the country to inform and educate people about their rights on a whole range of topics. These are intensive, full day events that run from 9.00am til 5.00pm and cover topics such as the importance of the Commonwealth Constitution, why the ATO is not a legal and entity and why the ATO can’t even define “income”, right through to more advanced information on how to successfully challenge fines in court as well as understanding the Strawman concept.

Their next seminar is going to be in Brisbane on the 22nd of August and then in Sydney on the 5th of September and those will be the last times that they will be running those events in those cities this year. So, if you would like to take your understanding and knowledge of your rights to a whole new level – including your rights in regards to unjust and unlawful f traffic fines – be sure to book your tickets, before they sell out, via the link on their seminar page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/

  - Latest Testimonials and feedback

We have been absolutely inundated with positive feedback and success stories since we last wrote to you and we have included a handful of them for you below but there are many more that have been added to our latest Testimonials page.

The first is from yet another member who simply used the 3 step process, from Chapter 3 of our e-book, to have an unjust and unlawful fine withdrawn:

Hi Guys,

Your three step letter process works    ……..… even against a bunch of vehement, reptilian downgrades working for the draconian QLD Government as the gold Coast Cops who tried to extract a hefty  $341 (where the F*^% does the 1 come from?) levy for a minor traffic infringement.  

Also: my research into the so-called ‘legislation’ in the varying states and the Commonwealth as well, that our various corrupted executive governments are relying on for their oppression; is revealing that a vast majority (around 70%) is missing the royal assent. And thus has no authority in Law. Am I just missing something? Surely the Royal Assent isn’t hidden in some obscure reference library that no-one can find. They would emblazon it on the very document they process as does the real legislation on far more documents pre-1973.

Keep up the good work guys and the word is spreading and is alive and well in Far North QLD.

Hamish – QLD

Our second is a very detailed one from a Member who successfully defeated his fine using the same information that we have covered in this particular e-mail update. Please note that we have edited this e-mail due to the length of it but we will upload the entire ‘he said, she said” part of the e-mail to our Testimonials page so you can read the full transcript of what occurred on the day.

Gday fellas, 

I have two matters in the appeals courts re alleged speeding offences and have been learning lots, especially about the dirty tricks the pros use (for example recently a prosecutor tried to deceive the court when I was there for a mention to adduce evidence into the record. The Pro, under her breath, told the judge that they were ready for a hearing so as to avoid having to adduce the Speed Camera operator’s Manual into the record. I had to speak up and say that I was NOT there for a hearing on that day. It was only a mention to adduce evidence)

Until today I also had another matter still at the Magistrates level. I used the ‘Notice to Dispute’ on the Advanced Member’s area of aussiespeedingfines.com

This particular notice goes into great detail about the National Measurements Act, specifically, "The photographic detection device used and the certificate of accuracy issued by the QLD Police Service under the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 (TORUM) QLD, does not comply with the accuracy and certification requirements of the National Measurement ACT 1960 Sections 10, 19a, 19aab and 20, and the National Measurement Regulations 1999 Regulation 16, 19, 37, 39, 41, 42, 46, 48, 58, 60, 63, 71, 73,74, 76, 90, and Schedules 1, 4, 7, 12, and therefore the alleged speed reading is inadmissible for any legal purpose as it has not been correctly certified.”

The Prostitutions Office responded with some impressive looking documentation making out that the device was certified according to the National Measurements Institute. I sent the guys at Aussie Speeding Fines copies. They responded by saying the documents still did not have pattern approval as required by law. I was about to prepare my submissions of reply when I received a CCd email from the Prostituors to the court house saying they would not be submitting any evidence and asking for the matter to be removed from the listings.

You Beauty.

The courthouse replied yesterday requiring a mention date so the matter could be dismissed and informing the prosecutor that a time had been made for this morning. Even though it was made clear that I did not have to attend I saw this as an opportunity to seek costs so did up an affidavit of costs and got it JPd before court this morning.

Thanks to the great info and continued support from the guys at Aussie Speeding Fines. I highly recommend them to anyone and everybody and have given out many dozens of business cards.

Kind Regards,

Wolf 

And, finally, we received another e-mail from a Member who dragged his case out for many months, took it to court and then did a deal with the Magistrate to ensure that he had no penalty. Remember, if you just blindly “pay up” rather than fighting your fines, these possibilities are all instantly eliminated.

Dear Aussie Speeding Fines,

Re:       Expiation Notice xxxxxxx

Matter heard at Holden Hill Magistrates Court – 20th July 2015:

I was scheduled to appear 11-30am 20th July 2015. On appearing at the court house I discovered my case did not appear on the court list. After I enquired at the counter about my case I was told it was Court 3, and to wait by the door. When Court 3 did not open I enquired again and was told it was Court 2!!!!

In court I had intended to plead not guilty – believing the case would be sent to trial. When appearing before the Judge however, I was asked how I intend to defend myself. The Judge kept asking if I admit that I was the driver of the vehicle; was I doing the alleged speed etc. and he insisted that I tell him how I intend to defend myself. I told him that I did not think I was speeding and that if he set a date for the hearing I would be able to defend myself at trial.

The Judge then stressed the point that the South Australian Government has passed legislation that upholds the presumption that speed camera readings are accurate. That to over-rule the charge I would have to prove that, in my case, the speed camera reading was not accurate. At this point I told the Judge I had written to the South Australian Police (SAPOL) and asked for details relating to their camera readings but that they did not even answer my correspondence.

I also told the Judge that I should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. The judge noted that in most cases an accused person has the presumption of innocence but the South Australian Government has reversed that convention. He informed me that the new South Australian legislation relating to exceeding the speed limits holds the charged person guilty until they can prove they are innocent.

The Judge told me that it would be almost impossible for me to win a case against the State Government. I said I am being charged with a criminal offence and I have the right to have the case heard in court. He said; “It is not a criminal offence but yes, you certainly have the right to take the matter to court.” He then said if I attempted to challenge the legislation I would finish up in the High Court and I would likely be hit with court costs. I said I do not have any money so you will have to throw me in jail. He quickly responded; “I do not want to do that!”

The Judge then told me I can plead ‘Guilty under Protest’. He said this is what the court would consider a ‘Plea of Convenience’ and if I did he would accept my guilty plea WITH NO PENALTY.

I therefore entered a guilty plea and the case is now closed – with no penalty.

More reasons to take advantage of our 25% off End of Financial Year promotion!

- Details of our 25% off End of Financial Year promotion

Just a quick reminder that despite the financial year ending on Wednesday, we are still running our very generous 25% off promotion on all full E-Book Memberships and, to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to take advantage of that promotion, we will now be extending it through until midnight this coming Sunday, the 5th of July 2015.

As we have said many times, even at the standard price, our e-book is, quite simply, the best motoring investment you will ever make but, at 25% off it is an absolute must!

Please keep in mind that our E-Book Memberships include a copy of our latest, updated e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” – not some photocopied version of a completely outdated version that some people have illegally given to others, completely contrary to our Legal and Copyright Notices. It also comes with our comprehensive selection of no less than 30 pre-written letters that you simply cut and paste your details into, and the specifics of your fine, and send off to the relevant agency – again, outdated photocopies do not provide any of that - and, most importantly, you also get 24/7 e-mail support which many of our Members believe is as valuable as the information in the e-book itself.

We know that challenging “the system” can be a scary, daunting prospect for many people and that’s why, as a legitimate ASF E-Book Member, we’re here to help you through the entire process. Our e-book explains, step-by-step, exactly what you need to do to successfully challenge any unjust and unlawful traffic fine – many of our Members have even applied our information to a wide range of other fines too – but, if that’s not enough for you, we are available via e-mail to answer any additional questions you may have as well.

This is by far and wide the most comprehensive collection of information on how to defeat all manner of fines that you will find anywhere and, as you will find out in the sections below, once you read our e-book, you will actually know more about the topic of traffic fines than most lawyers, barristers and even Judges. So, for a very minimal, one-off fee for life – which has now been discounted even further – and which includes free updates for life, as well as on-going support for life as well - our E-Book Membership is an obvious must have for every Aussie motorist!

To join up as a Member and take advantage of this special discount promotion, please go to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and select the option that best suits your needs (keeping in mind that we always recommend one of our hard copy options for portability, flexibility and usability) and just enter “EOFYS” into the coupon code box that comes up on the order page and hit “apply” and the discount will automatically be applied to your order.

We send all hard copy orders out by Express Post so you can have our information in your hands within days of placing your order and, please understand that the best time to have our information is before you even get a fine so that you are aware of all the options and arguments available to you from the moment you receive the all but inevitable next fine.

And, to find out why our information is so powerful and why you should always challenge your fines correctly, please read on ….

- Why most “legal professionals” are just a waste of time and money

When we talk to people in our day-to-day lives, we are shocked and concerned to hear just how many people still incorrectly believe that they need a lawyer to challenge a fine and/or that challenging a fine will be a costly exercise.

As we explain to them, one of the worst things you can do, in most traffic cases (and many other cases for that matter), is to use a lawyer. You see, lawyers are part of "the system”, they are taught by “the system” and trained by “the system” to work for “the system”.

Here is an excerpt from the “lawyer’s bible”:

Corpus Juris Secundum (C.J.S.) Vol. 7 § 4:
"His first duty is to the courts and the public, not to the client. And where ever the duties of his client conflict with those, he owes as an officer of the court in the administration of Justice, the former must yield to the latter."

Yes, you read that correctly, “legal professionals” have a clear allegiance to “the system” first and foremost and, as long as your argument doesn’t challenge “the system” they can help you but, if it does, then their hands are tied. So, that’s the first reason why you should almost never use a lawyer, they are there to support “the system” not to help you!

The second reason is because they don’t actually know as much about the law as you do – or, as you will, once you read our e-book. Think of it this way – you have a doctor who is a GP and they have a little bit of general medical knowledge – they can help you with a cut, a cold, a sprain, basic things of that nature but, for anything more serious, they need to refer you onto a specialist. Now, the specialist knows a lot more than the GP but only in that particular area or field of medicine – there’s no use talking to a heart specialist about a headache, for example.

The same applies to liars-for-hire – sorry, lawyers. There are general legal practitioners who know a little bit about not much and then there are specialist lawyers – property lawyers, business and contracts specialists, wills and estates practitioners, etc. who know a little bit more but only about those specific areas. There are very few traffic law specialists and even those who claim to be, still don’t know anywhere near as much as we do – if they did, surely one of them would have responded to the facts  that we have had up on our FAQ page for something like 6 years now -http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/FAQs.html

The fact is they can’t respond because they know that each and every one of those statements is correct! And, unfortunately for them, their failure to educate themselves - which stems from their "higher than thou, we know everything" attitude has actually landed them in some serious trouble over the years.

A couple of people have e-mailed us over the past week or so and referred to the QLD Barrister who took a speeding fine to court and escalated one of his poorly researched arguments all the way to the Supreme Court. You can read a little about his argument in this article - http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/queensland-barrister-uses-200yearold-law-to-challenge-speeding-fine-20150408-1mgck1.html

Not surprisingly, for the reasons we outlined above regarding "challenging the system", his argument failed and he lost his appeal -http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-06-23/queensland-barrister-tony-morris-qc-loses-speeding-fine-appeal/6566238

This Barrister's limited understanding of the law - like most "legal professionals" out there -was the cause of his un-doing. Legal maxims dictate that one cannot be held accountable for or be found guilty of an offence that they can prove they did not commit. This barrister clearly proved that he was elsewhere at the time of the offence and, therefore, that was all he needed to do to have the case dismissed on the grounds that the prosecution are required to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. If you want to verify this for yourself, please refer to the High Court case in the matter of Liberato v R that you can download from our "Downloads"' page on our Advanced Membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/download.php

This barrister is incorrectly relying on some ancient principle of protection against incriminating a spouse but what he doesn't seem to comprehend is he needs to stay focused on not incriminating himself - in this instance, by filling out a legal document that he cannot know, or reasonably be expected to know, is correct. If he does so then he is potentially committing fraud, perjury and/or attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Again, legal maxims dictate that you can't be forced to complete a Stat Dec, or Nomination Form if you can't be sure that it is 100% correct. If he wasn't there - because he was in a meeting with other Judges - then he has no way of knowing for certain who was driving and, therefore, cannot be compelled to complete a Nomination Form.

The correct case to refer to in regards to protecting yourself against self-incrimination is the High Court case in the matter of Lee v NSW Crimes Commission, which you can also download from our Advanced Membership website.

There are some other great cases available on that page as well as details of the statute of Limitations on fines for each State, and copies of the actual manufacturers training and guidelines for use manuals for most of the speed detection devices currently being used in Australia.

Now, you really would think that someone who had reached the lofty heights of being a "barrister" would know these cases and use them to his benefit to defeat his fine but, alas, he tried to be "smart" and it backfired.

However, that is not the worst of it. A few years back, we reported on the case involving Justice Einfeld - http://www.smh.com.au/national/former-judge-einfeld-gets-at-least-two-years-jail--all-for-lying-about-a-77-traffic-fine-20090319-93sr.html - who, instead of using the information in our e-book and on our Advanced Membership website, decided to blatantly lie and falsely nominate someone else as the driver of his vehicle when he was issued with a speeding fine. Unfortunately, for him, that person had actually died 3 years earlier and they caught him out and he was sentenced to 2 years in jail!

So, hopefully at this point, you are asking yourself, "How is it that barristers and even Judges are getting caught out and don't know these laws?" Quite simply, because they haven't bothered to join up as an E-Book Member and read our invaluable e-book - "Speeding Fines, What you REALLY Need to Know!"

Now, some may say that's a big call but just stop and look at the facts for a minute - here are two clear examples where trained "legal professionals" have gotten themselves into serious situations relying on their "legal training" yet, conversely, we have five pages full of testimonials - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - from average Aussies who have applied the information in our e-book and our website and achieved incredibly successful results.

The simple fact is that "legal professionals" are trained by "the system" to support "the system". On the other hand, we have a group of founding Members who have researched, tried and tested endless strategies and techniques, in court and out, to successfully defeat all manner of fines and we have put that collective experience together into a simple to follow, step-by-step e-book that comes with a full money back guarantee - and just happens to be available for a full 25% off the regular price for a very short time.

We think the facts speak for themselves and we look forward to welcoming any of you who are yet to join up as an E-Book Member very soon!

And, if you have already joined up, please be sure to pass this onto as many people as possible before Sunday night and urge them to join up themselves. The quicker we all start challenging every unjust and unlawful fine that we receive, the quicker we will bring "the system" to its knees!

25% off End of Financial Year sale plus some very interesting articles!

- All private parking fines officially declared illegal

As our existing E-Book Members would be well aware by now, we have been explaining that all parking fines are illegal for many years now because all our roads are created in fee simple and We, the People own them and, therefore, we cannot be charged to use them or park on them – Section 92 of the Commonwealth Constitution re-iterates this fact.

And, on top of that, we have also explained that, of all the different traffic fines being issued nowadays, private parking fines are the simplest of all to defeat – we actually have an entire chapter of our e-book (Chapter 9) dedicated to parking fines alone.

Well, the news for motorists around the country is even better this week as the Victorian Parliament has now just brought in new legislation that officially makes private parking fines “legally unenforceable”. You can see the full details of this fantastic new development here - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/government-to-crack-down-on-private-parking-operators-issuing-fines-20150610-ghk7h1.html

This will be a huge benefit to all those students using University carparks, people visiting friends and relatives in hospital carparks and the like. As we said above, we have been telling people about these illegal fines for over 8 years now but this new legislation just formally re-iterates what we have been saying all along. In fact, here is another article providing similar information - http://thenewdaily.com.au/news/2015/06/10/how-to-beat-a-parking-fine/

The other great thing about this is that, slowly but surely, all of the arguments that we have been telling people about in our e-book are starting to make their way into the mainstream media, which, in turn, is causing many motorists to fight back against these unjust and unlawful fines and, as a result, our governments are actually starting to change legislation, in some cases, in favour of motorists.

So, as we have said all along, all we need to do is spread this information far and wide and get every motorists to challenge every unjust and unlawful fine that they ever receive and then we will make a huge impact!

And remember, pursuant to Sections 117 and 118 of the Commonwealth Constitution, it doesn’t matter what State you live in, you can still rely on the Victorian legislation to challenge similar fines in your own State or Territory.

- Important articles from the US

Unfortunately, following on from the story above, as tends to happen, the government gives with one hand but takes with the other. We have covered the red light camera situation in the US in a number of our e-mail updates over the past year or so – especially concerning the bribery and corruption scandal involving Australian-based red light camera company, RedFlex. Well, the latest trick with red light cameras is now popping up in the media more regularly – deliberately reducing the length of the amber light to “entrap” motorists and cause them to receive an unjust and unlawful red light camera fine.

Now, we reported on this practice a few months ago when it hit the media in Victoria with a specific set of lights at the Melbourne Airport, but, as this article details - http://archive.wtsp.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=316418 - that practice is certainly not limited just to that specific set of lights. As this article details, just a minor reduction in the timing of the amber light can double the number of fines that are issued, as well as the revenue generated from those fines, which, of course, is precisely why they do it!

It is lengthy article but it’s well worth a read because they provide some very good tips on how to challenge a red light camera fine at the end and, when you combine that the 3 step Red Light process that is detailed in Chapter 3 of our e-book, plus the fact that they never actually have a photo of you behind the white line when the light is red – so they can’t prove when you actually entered the intersection – you will quickly realise that red light camera fines are very simple to successfully challenge and defeat.

Now, we obviously don’t condone people going through red lights but we certainly don’t condone the powers-that-be artificially reducing the timing of the lights just to entrap motorists and issue them with more fines. And, the reality is, as we detail on our Petition to Remove Cameras page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html - red light cameras have actually been proven to cause more accidents than they prevent.

Now, another interesting article that came across our desk from the US recently was about a Judge who quit over speeding fine quotas. You can read the full story here - http://www.wfaa.com/story/news/local/investigates/2015/06/02/former-judge-says-he-quit-because-of-speeding-ticket-quota/28367771/

As reported last year, when the SA police e-mail was leaked, the police right here in OZ also work under a very similar “quota system” – although, of course, they don’t call it that – but the reality is the same. If only we could get more judges and Magistrates here in Australia to grow a conscience and quit as well. Remember, without anyone to enforce their ridiculous rules and regulations – ie. police, court staff, Sheriffs etc. – the whole system would collapse.

For those who haven’t seen it yet, this is a really great video urging police and other people in positions of “legal power” to do exactly that - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TI8sMkFzhvU  Once you have watched it, please e-mail it around to friends, post it on Facebook and do whatever else you can do to ensure that as many people as possible see this powerful message.

- One rule for them and one rule for us

And, speaking of people in positions of “legal power’, we came across the following article, this week - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/vicroads-officers-routinely-dodged-speeding-fines-demerit-points-ombudsman-20150610-ghkkig.html - that shows that VicRoads officers are also now abusing their power and avoiding speeding fines and demerit points.

As the 3rd last paragraph states, People with the power to enforce the law and impose penalties on others must be held to the highest possible standards when it comes to their own conduct. It is a worrying state of affairs when those charged with enforcing the rules not only flout them, but have no qualm in doing so."

The fact that these kinds of stories are coming out in the mainstream media now and that these people are being held accountable, is a very positive sign and we really hope that it continues.

It actually reminds us of a story that came out about 5 years ago, which detailed the fact that police officers were 25 times more likely than the “average motorist” to get off a speeding fine. This was the story that broke back in 2010 - http://www.drive.com.au/roads-and-traffic/drivers-in-the-know-avoid-speeding-fines-20101012-16hu7.html?comments=32  Now, please keep in mind that we had actually been telling people about that fact, along with many others in our e-book, since we started, way back in 2007.

The story is repeated in the media every year or so and we have done a follow up on it from time to time and, now, 5 years later, the Victoria Police have been forced, through public pressure, to clearly provide this information on their official website - http://www.police.vic.gov.au/content.asp?document_id=10369

So, hopefully, this goes to show you that “people power” can and does have a real impact. When enough people speak up, fight back and challenge the system, we can achieve some really positive results – we just need to increase the numbers of people doing that!

- The height of absurdity

We wanted to finish off this week’s e-mail update with a couple of articles that show just how completely out of control the revenue raising has become and how absurd the whole government propaganda of “road safety” really is.

The first article details just how dangerous “speedo gazing” can be - http://motorbikewriter.com/speedo-gazing-fatal-hazard/   The article details that low-level speeding fines are dramatically increasing - despite there being almost no correlation between them and accidents – it does raise a hell of a lot of extra revenue for them though.

The author gives some great real world examples of people driving far more safely at speeds in excess of the arbitrarily reduced “posted limits” and also refers to the “natural speed” that most people would drive on any given stretch of road. As we have said many times before, it is focus and attention that are far more important than a specific speed and this article reinforces that.

We, too, hope that it doesn’t come to people shooting speed camera operators before someone takes notice and removes them but one has to ask, “How long will the government continue to anger and frustrate the very motorists they have been tasked with serving and protecting, before those motorists do start physically fighting back?”

And, the last article that we want to cover left us absolutely speechless – which, given the length of these regular e-mail updates, is a big deal for us! This story - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-06-02/queensland-man-fined-151-for-driving-100kph-in-an-100kph-zone/6513868 - is about a driver who was issued with a speeding fine for driving at the speed limit!

Now, the police are quick to brush it off as an “administrative error” but surely this has got to make people question just how many other “administrative errors” are made with these devices every day that aren’t so obvious or that don’t make it to social media.

We have covered stories in the past where it has turned out that a speed camera operator manually inputted the wrong speed limit into a camera and hundreds of people were issued with fines for travelling below the speed limit. Sure, some of these errors are identified and rectified but many are not – as we explain in our e-book, the excerpts from the operators manuals for these devices actually states that, “the possibilities for error are too numerous to mention”!

So why on earth would you ever just blindly pay a traffic fine again without reading our e-book first to see just: how many arguments you have available to you; how flawed and faulty these devices are and; how simple and straight forward it can be to successfully challenge those fines and keep your hard earned money in your pocket!

- Important Tax info from our friends at the Know Your Rights group

And, speaking of keeping your hard earned money in your pocket, this coming week marks the end of the financial year and we know that many people are thinking about “tax time” so we urge you to have a read over the tax page on the Know Your Rights group website - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/tax/  

Many people have contacted us over the years saying that they are interested in finding out more information about their rights, over and above just what we cover in our e-book and we have recently teamed up with the Know Your Rights group and we highly recommend their website and their information. They actually have a weekly radio show and last week’s show covered some mind blowing facts like: personal tax is voluntary not obligatory, the ATO can’t actually define the word “income” and the ATO have admitted that they are not even a legal entity.

Be sure to join up as a know Your Rights Member - http://knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/members/ - so you can access all of their previous podcasts – including the one of last week’s show – with all the music edited out and also with a copy of all of their official notes for their shows as well. You can also listen into their broadcasts live each week and/or order their back catalogue of podcasts on CD as well through this page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/

Their slogan is “Those who don’t know their rights have none” and this article - http://www.wakingtimes.com/2015/06/16/individual-ignorance-is-strength-to-institutions-2/ - relays a similar message that encompasses exactly what we cover in regards to how the governments of this country continue to get away with ever increasing fines – the general apathy and ignorance of the average Aussie is what enables the powers-that-be to keep controlling us.

We simply must all learn about our rights – in all areas of life – and we must start fighting back against injustice and, as the section below shows, when you do, you can achieve some really great results.

  - Latest Testimonials and feedback

We have been absolutely inundated with positive feedback and success stories since we last wrote to you and we have included a handful of them for you below but there are many more that have been added to our latest Testimonials page.

The first is a follow up e-mail from the first testimonial that we included in our last e-mail update:

Hey team,

Brief update from my email to you last month.

Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit (which seeks to prevent you from your right to a court of competent jurisdiction) have returned the 2 outstanding fines to the issuing "authority" - Salisbury City council.

Total of fees I don't have to pay - $650! Add that to the $375 from last month and I'm happy!

Now I will begin the 3 letter process on the council - but not just the council. The mayor, CEO, General Manager and the head of inspectorial services. They need to stop!

Very happy!

Cheers,
Wayne – S.A.

Our second is from a lady who successfully used our 3 sep process to defeat a parking fine:

Hello,

Thanks for the email. I submitted your form letters when my husband was issued a parking fine. The first reply from the Council had a very sarcastic tone and requested the payment.

I sent the second form letter and have had no further correspondence from them for 4 months.

Winning.

He had a day’s work on Stradbroke Island but when he got to the carpark only the spots for trailers was free so he parked there rather than miss a day’s work. This annoyed me so I went ahead, so glad I did. 

Thank you all very much

April - QLD

And, finally, we received a very detailed e-mail from a Member who successfully challenged a speeding fine in court and, not only won, but was also awarded $550 in costs!

HI ASF,

I thought my recent experience in fighting an alleged speeding fine might be of interest to ASF readers especially since it involves the limitation period for traffic offences.

My approach followed ASF’s recommendation of returning all unsolicited mail which probably included speed fines received in the mail. I received a demand for payment of an unpaid fine from SPER noting the alleged fine was dated some 2 years earlier.

In response I sent various letters to SPER challenging them on the legality of their demand for payment especially without a court order and reference to the limitation period, to no avail. This went on the 6 months. Finally, I sent them my objection and request to cancel SPER’s Enforcement Order SPER Act 1999 under s56(1) & (2).SPER finally granted my request only after I stated the above section which they had to comply with.

However, upon cancelation the QPS issued a new infringement notice starting the whole process all over again. Remember, by this time, the alleged speeding offence occurred over 2.5 years ago. I elected to have the matter heard by a court of law.

On the hearing date the magistrate read through the charge sheet and noted the date of the alleged offence and raised this is the prosecution. The magistrate then asked whether my defence rested on the issue of the limitation period in s52 of the Justices Act 1886. I replied that my defence did indeed address this issue but was only one part of my defence as I had various other points to raise.

He questioned my understanding of the limitation period in the Justices Act but also grilled me on the limitation period in the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 especially s62. It appeared he was convinced that I was well aware of the limitation period issue and how it applied to the matter. I guess he needed to do this since he was the one who raised it in the first place and would need to ensure that impartiality was being upheld.

The magistrate then grilled the prosecution over the limitation period issue at length for approximately 40 minutes and the prosecution’s defence rested on s32 of the State Penalties Enforcement Act 1999 claiming it supersedes s62 of TORUM Act 1995. The magistrate appeared to be contemplating the prosecution’s arguments and reading the various sections in the above acts. He finally ordered both parties to prepare submissions on the issue of the limitation period and advised I seek legal assistance and adjourned the hearing to a later date.

I contacted a number of solicitors listed on the web who specialised in traffic matters. Of the six I contacted only one replied stating that they would not be interested in preparing a submission even though I would pay for it. The other five had no interest whatsoever. Finally, through personal contacts I found a solicitor who was prepared to prepare a submission for a fixed price ($550).

On receipt of the prosecution’s copy of their submission I sent a copy of my solicitor’s submission and forwarded a copy onto the court to put on the case file. On the hearing date, the magistrate asked the prosecution whether they did indeed prepare a submission as ordered as there was no copy on the case file. The prosecution, who were different people to those at the original hearing date, said they were not sure but assumed a copy was forwarded. The magistrate asked whether they had a copy of the submission and they said they did not. The magistrate then asked if I had a copy of the prosecution’s submission and I said I did and gave my copy to the magistrate. He spent about three minutes reading a 15 page submission which included additional attachments. The submission itself was 5 pages. This suggested to me that the magistrate did read my submission and had already made up his mind. The prosecution was claiming the limitation period according to the SPER Act 1999 was three years.

The magistrate then ruled in my favour IE that the limitation period was exceeded and therefore the case was dismissed. Please note he did state that according to QLD legislation the limitation period on a traffic matter after SPER cancelation of an Enforcement Order is two years not 12 months. Also note, that my solicitor stated that the prosecution’s interpretation was correct and even though he prepared the submission as directed he did not believe it would be accepted by the magistrate if the magistrate were to read the various acts and submissions closely.

I asked for costs which the prosecution objected to. I presented a schedule of costs to the magistrate who refused them stating that travel costs, photocopying costs, lost income, and information purchase costs were all excluded and only the solicitor costs for the submission could be claimed. I argued that the whole matter was frivolous and vexatious and should not have proceeded on the basis of the limitation period, the QPS Procedures manual (no matter should be commenced if more than 8 months old), and the magistrate’s own judgement. He refused my request and would only grant costs in the amount of $550 however he stated I could appeal but I would be foolish to as most appeals for costs are lost.

Finally the magistrate gave the QPS two months rather the usual one month to pay. I objected. The magistrate said that he could rule one month however the QPS was taking approximately two months to make such payments. I immediately objected again to no avail. Having won the case and costs of $550 I chose not to proceed with an appeal on costs.

Note, the prosecution (QPS) objected to paying costs of $550 and requested that the magistrate order costs be paid by SPER which was unsuccessful. The prosecution then argued that the original QPS prosecutor pursued this matter in good faith and therefore costs should not be awarded against them. On hearing this I was speechless. There appears to be some tensions between these two organisations especially since the QLD has a huge budget deficit, with the obvious conclusion, it is all about the money.

Stay safe out there,



31 May 2015
Some really positive news for once and some excellent success stories!

- Intro

We know it has been a while since we last wrote to you and we thank all those people who have now slowly but surely started sending us a gentle “reminder” in regards to the time frame between e-mail updates. Given the feedback we have received, it seems that about a month is a suitable time frame between updates – regular enough to keep you up-to-date with developments but not so often that you are bombarded with e-mails.

It’s always a bit of a juggling act but this time frame seems to be what people are after and, given our increasing workload, that works in well with us too. So, please expect that, from now on, give or take, you should receive our regular e-mail updates once a month or so, unless there is something of great importance to report before then.

Now, speaking of our e-mail updates, we know that very often they refer to all the issues that we, as Aussie motorists are facing, and, every so often, they contain just one or two “positive” articles. Well, this week, we are happy to report that all of the articles are very positive and powerful and should be used to inspire and empower more people than ever before to fight back.

So, to find out more about the latest and greatest developments, please read on ….

- Controversial claim that mobile phones do not cause crashes

As we noted in the section above, every time we send out an e-mail update, we include references or links to the latest government propaganda. Those articles are usually filled with government spin that exists purely to justify their on-going revenue raising agenda. Well, finally, it seems as though there is some dissention in the ranks and people are speaking out against all the ridiculous government claims and setting the record straight.

The first of those articles is from a Ford executive who stated that mobile phones are not causing anywhere near the number of crashes that the governments claim they are. You can read the full story here - http://www.news.com.au/technology/gadgets/car-safety-expert-controversially-claims-mobile-phones-are-not-causing-crashes/story-fn6vihic-1227353007181

Now, we would like to state, from the outset, that anything that distracts you whilst driving or takes your attention off the road for even a second – such as constantly looking down at your speedo so you don’t get some ridiculous, arbitrary “speeding fine” – can, most assuredly, be dangerous.  As this article correctly points out though, most drivers tend to slow down if they are on the phone – because they are focused on the phone – and, if all the government BS about “wipe off 5 and save lives” or “speed is the biggest killer on our roads” is true, then that would actually make phone users “safer” drivers!

Clearly, we’re not saying that we agree with that statement but the point is that they can’t have it both ways – either it is “speed” that is the problem and anything that causes you to slow down must make you safer or, it is “inattention and distraction” that are the issue, in which case, driving faster and paying greater attention to the road will make you safer.

Pick an argument and stick with it governments – you simply cannot have your cake and eat it too!

As this article points out, the reality is that the moment you tell people they “can’t” do something then that’s exactly what they will try and do – you can’t get around human nature! So, if you tell people that they can’t text and drive then they will try and hide their phones in their laps and that will make them more distracted which, in turn, creates more accidents.

It’s exactly the same as the red light camera issue – they create a new law that allows zero tolerance for going through a red light – even though it may be safe to do so – and everyone starts slamming on their brakes at even the hint of a light going red and they create more accidents than they prevent – but hey, they generate a hell of a lot of cash flow while their doing it!

We urge all motorists to please visit our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - to see the sort of true road safety initiatives that we would like to see implemented, rather than just these blanket, across the board, arbitrary fines.

- Huge success in QLD as the government scraps plans to recover $1 billion in unpaid fines

Our second story, this week, follows on from an article that we reported on previously, where the QLD government proposed using private debt collectors to try and a recover the $1 billion currently outstanding in unpaid fines.

Well, we have great news to share with you this week, the government has now decided to scrap that plan – hopefully due to unprecedented pressure from our Members. You can read the further details here - http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/05/19/06/04/debt-collection-plan-scrapped-as-queensland-nears-$1b-in-unpaid-fines and also here - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/labor-abandons-newman-plans-for-private-debt-collectors-to-tackle-fine-dodgers/story-fnihsrf2-1227359518495

Now, there are some really important points to note about that article and the first, and most obvious one, is the fact that there are currently $1 billion in outstanding fines in QLD alone, which just shows that more people than ever before are refusing to blindly “pay up”, which is fantastic news, in and of itself – well done QLD motorists!

The second point is that our Members, through the assistance of other groups that we now work with: the Know Your Rights group – www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au; Bank Secrets revealed – www.banksecretsrevelaed.com.au; CLRG – www.clrg.info and the like, are starting to realize that debt collectors are third party interlopers and have absolutely no legal right or standing to collect on these alleged debts.

And, in addition to that, it seems as though, finally - after 8 years of repeating it on a regular basis - people are starting to understand the power and the impact of Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act, which dictates that all fines and forfeitures, before conviction, are illegal and void. If you don’t yet understand the relevance of that Act and why it means that all traffic fines are unjust and unlawful, then please be sure to get a copy of our comprehensive, 85 page e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know” - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Digital-E%252dbook-Information.html

The simple fact is that neither the government, nor their private debt collectors, have any legal right to pursue those purported “debts”, until or unless those people have been convicted by a court of competent jurisdiction, after all relevant evidence has been cross examined. Given that most of those fines would have stemmed from speed cameras and, as the only witness to the “offences” are the cameras themselves, and the fact that the cameras cannot be taken into court and cross examined, there is simply no case to answer to for the majority of those fines and they are ridiculous, baseless threats.

Thankfully, QLD motorists are waking up to these facts – we just hope that other motorists around this fine country, pun intended, do the same.

- Incredible stories of success from people fighting back against unjust fines

And, following on from our section above, it does, in fact, seem like motorists around the country are waking up to the truth about the current system and how utterly ineffective it is and they are fighting back to change it.

Earlier this week, we were involved in putting the following article together with the Daily Mail Australia - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3090650/Meet-man-got-fifty-speeding-fines-exploiting-loopholes-beat-vigilante-just-hoon.html

Not only has this ASF Member successfully challenged some fifty unjust and unlawful speeding fines, but he has also been awarded significant costs in his favour – even as high as one for an amount of $6,000. We spoke to David and it was really interesting to see how he looks at things so differently to most motorists. Most people are just happy if they can successfully have a fine withdrawn yet he believes it as a failure if he doesn’t get a four figure payout for his trouble – just imagine every motorist started treating the system like that!

The other great thing about this article is that we finally got the mainstream media to refer the fact that the government constantly claims that fines are not about revenue raising and they further claim that speed cameras and the like cause motorists to slow down so, why then do the governments budget in a certain amount of revenue from fines each year – surely, if fines really were the deterrent that the government claims then their budget would be zero!  

The additional comments about having no right what-so-ever to call speed cameras “Safety Cameras” is 100% correct. If we started claiming that our e-book will “save your life” we’d be shut down in a heartbeat yet they get away with it every day.

There are some really great points in that article for motorists who are just starting down the path of learning about their rights in regards to traffic fines, to read up on and, obviously, for those who are ready for more detailed information, be sure to join up as a Member and grab a copy of the e-book that is mentioned in that article, via this page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html

- Everyone can claim costs for unjust and unlawful fines

Further to the brilliant article detailed in the section above, one of our Members has sent us through some excellent information confirming that everyone has the right to compensation when they successfully challenge an unjust and unlawful fine.

Section 64, Sub-section 2 of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management) Act 1995 clearly states that, “A person may claim compensation from the State if the person incurs loss or expense because of the exercise or purported exercise of a power under a transport Act, including, for example, in complying with a requirement made of the person.”

You can download a copy of that Act via this link - https://www.google.com.au/?gws_rd=ssl#q=transport+operations+(road+use+management)+act+1995 – and you will find Section 64 on page 120 of the document or page 122 of the pdf, so you can print that page out and take it with you to court whenever you are challenging your next fine.

And, yes, this is QLD legislation but there will almost certainly be equivalent legislation in your State and, if there isn’t, be sure to refer to sections 117 and 118 of the Commonwealth Constitution, which dictate that full faith and credit must be given to all Acts in each State and a resident in one State cannot be discriminated against because he/she lives in that particular State and not another – ie. you can rely on the legislation of any State in any other State, if it benefits you to do so.

As we have said more times than we can count, the only way that we’re going to bring about some real change is by hitting the government where it hurts – in their back pocket. The first step is for motorist to stop blindly “paying up” which already seems to be happening in QLD and that is great news. But, the next step is to start blowing out their costs. As it is, it already costs them thousands of dollars to run each and every prosecution but if every time you win, you also claimed additional costs, over and above what it already costs them to pursue these ridiculous fines, then they will really get the message and be forced to start changing things!

- The “next” level, for those who are ready

As we promised at the start of this e-mail, all the news this week is really positive and our last story is going to blow you away. Now, this is not for the faint of heart, this is really aimed at our Advanced Members but it is certainly something for all motorists to keep in the back of their minds and aim towards.

We were recently sent a brilliant You Tube video of a man in the US who actually pulled over a police officer, made him identify himself and then informed him of the law and warned him that if he didn’t alter his behavior, he could be fined or even arrested – the officer’s face and responses are pure gold - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaQyiIizgU8

Now, what is so powerful about this video is that this guy does this so calmly and clearly that this officer is never given a reason, or an opportunity, to “have a go” at this guy. He retains full control of the situation throughout the entire encounter, he is firm but fair and he completely turns the table on this officer and does to the officer exactly what they usually do to motorists.

We need to remember that the police are public servants – they exist to serve us. Now, we don’t say that in some egotistical way or anything like that, but it is the same as any other person or group that we employ to do any task or service for us. If you employ a mechanic to fix your car then you expect them to make repairs that are in our best interest. You expect a medical professional to perform medical tasks with your best interests at heart (and no, we’re not suggesting that they always do that, we’re just making a point here) and, police officers are no different – they are there to serve us. So, if they are not truly serving you or, worse still, they are in breach of some law whilst conducting their duties, then you have an obligation to calmly and firmly but fairly explain that to them and they have an obligation to take those points on board.

We reported a few months back about the police that tried to sue the Victorian Government, only to be told that they are not “employed” by the government so they do not have “government protection”. So, if they were to “arc up” or act inappropriately to any suggestion you might make to them – that was in accordance with the law and their duties – then you have every right to take legal action against them for compensation.

The police are just humans and they are accountable too, as this article proves - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/seven-queensland-police-officers-stood-down-in-may/story-fntwpug1-1227362757453  It is our role to hold them accountable and, if everyone did this, things would change very quickly!

  - Latest Testimonials and feedback

And, as if all of the above wasn’t enough good news, we have some more positive reports from Members who have successfully used our information to challenge their own unjust and unlawful fines.

The first is from a Member who was being threatened with licence and registration suspension for unpaid fines. Here’s what he had to say:

Hey team,

Just had a small win with the Fines and Enforcement Unit here in SA. We received my wife's rego renewal and they are going to suspend her license and stop her from registering her car.

I had been using the "Return to sender" strategy with them for 3 fines - 1 was a fine which we had paid off or at least thought we had. We missed the final payment of $25.

2 of the fines were from the local council. I'll come back to these.

For the missed payment of $25 they had added fees and charges - an additional $375!

I challenged this by conditional acceptance - we would pay the fine and additional amounts on proof of:

Legislation compelling mail to be opened
Legislation forbidding the return of unwanted mail
Proof that the Fines and Enforcement Unit were not a private business registered to a lady named Theresa Kennedy and trading as a sole trader. (ASIC website shows the Fines and Enforcement Unit are a private business!)

We received an email back stating the team leader had decided to waiver the additional fees! So we paid the $25 and emailed them the receipt.

When we called the Fines and Enforcement Unit about these fines I said I'd elect to go to court and was told this is no longer possible. Then I filled in the payment plan papers and noticed a little line - "by electing to enter a payment plan you also waiver your right to elect to be prosecuted". So I killed the payment plan option and am now appealing the other 2 fines.

I had used the 3 letter process with the local council and through non-response and non performance gained an agreement. Now with the appeal with the fines unit I'm expecting them to throw the fines straight back to the council. I'll update you on completion :)

I'd NEVER have even attempted this without your ebook! I refuse to pay any fines now. Thank you for giving me the balls and resources to fight the thugs!

Cheers,
Wayne – S.A.

We also had another interesting e-mail from a member who reported back some very interesting points from a court case she attended.

Hi Guys

Well I went in, court Mention today. I had a big affidavit that I had prepared but I didn't bring it out....of course....

There were heaps of people there all trying to get permission to drive due to hardship, so they had all run out of points....a crazy scenario.

There were a couple of interesting interchanges between the magistrate and the prosecution.

One was about an infringement that had been returned to sender. No note- just marked on the outside.

Magistrate said they couldn't send it to SPER because it had been "returned to sender" even though the prosecution was sure that the address was correct. They were told to send it back to TCO and have them reissue it.... so that was interesting.

Then also, the 12 months thing is only IF people refer it on, and it keeps getting referred on. In other words, the round robin WORKS! You just have to keep it up for 12 months.

So then came my turn.

She asked my name and I fumbled again.... then she said- do I want it heard, if not she will just schedule the hearing and be done with it....so a threat I guess. Then she asked how I plea- I said I enter no plea because I have no cause to answer because it is already a year old.

She said she would enter a not guilty plea and the date for hearing was set....then I piped up.

I said but you cant because it is passed the statute of limitations. She said that the policeman- Colin John Parry- declared it came to his attention on 3 March and under section 62 of transport operations blabla........

Then I said. “So is this a personal thing between him and me or is it Qpolice, because if it is Qpolice then they have had it for over 12 months.” then everything changed. She told me I might have something, and she looked up her big books.

She asked me if I put in a court election, I said no because I don't use their paperwork, but I told them repeatedly that IF they had a "cause of action" that I would go to a court of competent jurisdiction, Chapter 111 Jury court.

Then she sat back and had a think..... Then she announced she wanted him to prepare an affidavit explaining why it took so long. So he has 6 weeks to prepare his affidavit/ or withdraw.

She said she would like him to withdraw, because 8 months is too long.....

She even smiled at me, and the prosecution lady was really polite....

And they took down my email address so that they could notify me if he withdraws.....

I asked her if I needed to prepare anything, did she want my letters....She said No...I don't have to do anything- it is up to them to explain themselves.

So, fingers crossed, this one is a win......

Cheers,

Brandi - QLD

And, finally, we had feedback from another Member who successfully managed to drag a case out for 18 months and not only had the fine waived but also admitted that he earned far more in that time by being an affiliate than the original fine would have cost him anyway so it was a double win.

Please read his e-mail below and be sure to join up as an Affiliate yourself - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Affiliates.html - if you haven’t already done so.

G'day guys,

Well, I went to court on Monday. The police spent almost 90 minutes presenting their 'evidence'. Dozens of pieces of paper certifying that the speed camera was correct, that the police officer was authorized under the Act, and all the rest of the rigmarole they go through to try and justify their daylight robbery.

Then I got up and told the magistrate that I am a Vietnam veteran and that I was not driving the car. I produced a Stat Dec sent to me by the Indian who was driving my car. I also produced a print out from the Department of Veterans Affairs showing that I was logged in at the gym about 5 kilometers from the site of the alleged offense at the time.

The Magistrate would not accept either document into the evidence, as he said the driver must be in the court room. As my driver was in India, there was nothing he could do.

Then the policewoman started grilling me. During this amazing performance she repeatedly asked why I didn't state categorically that I was not driving on the Stat Dec I submitted within the mandatory 30 day period after receiving the fine notice. As I pointed out, I wasn't sure who was driving the car at that time. I wasn't even sure if I was driving. However, after further investigation I found out that I was at the gym and eventually I found the Indian friend who was driving my car at the time. She asked why I could not remember where I was on the day, and I pointed out that I have a poor memory (I am 67 after all!) and the shock of receiving a speeding ticket confused me. I had no recollection of getting pinged for speeding.

When I was finished giving evidence the Magistrate took a 10 minute recess to "go and do some research". I think he was looking up the Act to see if there was a time limit to submitting a Stat Dec, and if the court could accept one from my Indian friend.

When he returned he explained that the Act is very specific. The SD must be submitted within 30 days (in Qld) and I should have stated that I was not driving the car at the time and nominated the actual driver.

As I had pointed out repeatedly as I gave evidence, I couldn't do that, and I wasn't going to lie on a Stat Dec, he said it was unfortunate but he had to administer the letter of the law.

Then came the sentencing phase. He convicted me of speeding, but then said that he believed my version of events and therefore he WAIVED THE FINE!

I want to thank you for your support throughout this saga. It is finally closed after more than 18 months of dragging it out through the court system while I did the research to back up my defence. I really appreciate the support and advice you have given me along the way. You guys have been great.

But what is really fantastic about all this is that when I first approached you I signed up as an affiliate. Since then, I have earned much more than the fine would have been...enough to buy a new laptop! Fantastic. Keep up the good work.

Cheers!

Important ANZAC Day message for all Aussie motorists!

- Intro

Today is ANZAC Day. It is a time for remembering those who have fallen, fighting for our freedom and liberties. So, why is it that so many people, despite all the sacrifices that have been made on our behalf in the past, are content to sit on their asses and allow all those freedoms and liberties, that have been fought for so valiantly, to be slowly but surely eroded away by the corrupt governments that now control us.

What would those diggers say from beyond the grave if they could see the disgraceful corruption that Australia has degenerated into? How disgusted would they be that their lives were given in vain? They fought so hard for us to be free and yet we give our freedoms away every day by refusing to fight back against the injustices that are forced upon us by the very people that we elected into power to do our bidding!

Yes, of course, traffic fines are just a very small part of those but they’re a great start and they are something that everyone can relate to and they are a way that everyone can fight back collectively and send a united message to the powers-that-be, that we are “Aussies”, we are fighters and we will not be controlled or dominated anymore!

Our diggers had to fight for their lives in horrendous conditions to protect our freedoms – all you have to do is pick up a pen.

You will not find a single link to our e-book in this e-mail because we don’t care what information you use - what we care about is that Aussie motorists stand up and fight back. We’re not asking you to pick up rifles and huddle in cold, damp, muddy trenches – we’re asking you to get your asses off the couch, turn off the football and pick up a pen and write a letter to your local MP, write a letter to your State Police force or write a letter to some agency that has issued you with an unjust and unlawful fine and challenge it!

Quite frankly, if you’re not prepared to make just a small sacrifice like that, when thousands gave their lives for you then you are a disgrace, you disrespect their memory and you don’t deserve the few freedoms that you have left. No-one made it easier for our diggers to fight so forget about our e-book for today and just stand up, for one day, on your own two feet and fight back.

After all, those who don’t fight for something will fall for anything!

Let us truly honour the memory of those who have fallen by choosing to fight back, in much simpler ways, under much easier conditions, but to achieve the same end result – true freedom for all Aussies.

And, should you need any more reason than the words above to inspire you to fight back then we challenge you to read the sections, articles and stories below because, if they don’t empower you to take action then, sadly, there is clearly no hope for this fine country (pun intended) any longer.

We urge you to read on and prove us wrong …

- The blatant revenue raising in QLD

Our first story is from QLD and it clearly shows the lengths that the government is going to – or, perhaps, that should be depths they are lowering themselves to – to raise revenue from entirely innocent, law abiding motorists.

The politicians reduced the tolerance levels for speeding fines a year ago in QLD and, as this story explains - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/spike-in-just-over-speeding-fines-as-cops-crack-down-on-camera-margin/story-fnihsrf2-1227314312595 - they have reaped some incredible financial rewards as a result – an extra $5 million to be exact. But, has the road toll go gone down as a result? No, of course it hasn’t, in fact, it has actually increased!

They say that speed tolerances are never published or known by the public but that is a blatant lie – people were well aware, for decades, that there used to be a 10% leeway in the issuing of fines, now A) that doesn’t exist and B) no-one has any idea what the tolerances are. The people that we elected into power to do our bidding are now keeping us in the dark in regard to how they go about raising revenue from us – that’s insane!

The police claim, that this new “enforcement action” is saving lives yet, the video at the top of the article above details that it has been the worst Easter road toll on record so clearly the current system is simply not working!

The Police are “urging motorists not to take risks” but what do you call constantly staring down at your speedo so that you don’t cop a ridiculous, unjust fine! Logic dictates that the more time your eyes are on your speedo and, therefore, not on the road, the more of a danger you are going to be – it’s not rocket science people, it is very simple, straight forward and logical.

Should there be anyone reading this who struggles with this concept in any way, please read this very short article - http://motorbikewriter.com/speedo-gazing-fatal-hazard/ - which explains it in very simple to understand terminology – “Speedo gazing is a ‘fatal hazzard’”.

Further to the article at the start of this section, there was this follow up article the following day - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/acting-assistant-commissioner-mike-keating-say-he-has-no-proof-a-speed-camera-crackdown-makes-roads-safer/story-fnkt21jb-1227316012068 - where the Assistant Commissioner admitted that he couldn’t point to any specific proof that all these ridiculous cameras and/or the lowering of tolerances, had reduced the road toll in any way, shape or form, despite the fact that this “crackdown” has been going for almost two years.

He goes onto suggest that it could take up to ten years for the data to become available. So, what are we, the general Aussie motoring public, supposed to do until then, just keep bending over and handing them our hard earned cash!!!

And, what happens in 10 years when it’s proven to be a load of crap – will they come back and repay all those fines with interest??? Let’s get real, this is the most obvious scam ever and yet people are still buying into it- literally “buying into it” buy handing over their money every time one of these agencies sends them a piece of paper in the mail.

At least someone has had to guts to stand up and post a sensible reply to this rubbish - https://www.change.org/p/jack-dempsey-queensland-police-commissioner-stop-hurting-societies-most-vunerable-with-excessive-fines?just_created=true

So, if you are sick of this blatant revenue raising then, as we said in our opening section, please take action and do something about it.

- The news is even worse in Victoria

Yes, as the title of this section correctly states, things are even more out of control in Victoria. The Victorian government is so completely and utterly incompetent when it comes to handling finances that they need to constantly create new ways of stealing from their constituents and they have now employed a whole host of people and new ways to do that.

First off, one of our Members sent us this article – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/network-of-hi-tech-cameras-on-wheels-to-nab-suspects/story-fni0fit3-1227317826449 - that details the extraordinary lengths they are now going to in Victoria to try and raise every dollar worth of unjust and unlawful revenue that they can.

The article starts by explaining that police vehicles have been fitted with new technology that cost $85 million! Please, stop reading right now and think or just one minute where that $85 million comes from. Then, understand that this is an “investment” for them, they’re not doing it for nothing, they are doing to it make money. So, just to “break even” they need to steal another $85 million from completely innocent Victorian motorists and, because they need their “investment” to pay off, they actually need to raise considerably more than that.

If they’re not getting this money from you then they’re getting it from someone you know. Read the last article in the section above – most motorists are not criminals, they are genuine, law abiding people who are being preyed upon by a money-hungry government that has employed “policy officers: (police) to do their dirty work for them. Is this the kind of thing that you voted the government into power to really do?

Remember, the road toll is increasing so they can’t claim that these are “road safety” initiatives – they are not, they are blatant revenue raising initiatives – and, if you read the rest of the article, they all but admit that.

They “claim” that this new ANPR system will “save lives by reducing numbers of dangerous drivers” yet, they go on to say that the system will simply scan numberplates to “check them against vehicle, criminal and sheriff’s office records, could gather intelligence on “persons of interest” and identify patterns of behaviour and relationships.” – absolutely nothing to do with identifying or stopping “dangerous drivers”.

Maybe it’s just us but we thought that most people had read George Orwell’s “1984” at school and could clearly see that “Big Brother” is well and truly upon us and is growing at an exponential rate with the introduction of these kind of insidious systems that steal the freedoms and liberties that our diggers worked so hard to protect!

This system exists purely to help identify un-registered vehicles and suspended drivers, most of whom are in that situation because these government agencies have failed to comply with Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act in the first place. Remember, that law clearly dictates that “All fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void.”

These agencies are now taking on the role of Judge, Jury and Executioner, all in one! Instead of the police “policing” us, we should be policing them!

And, if that’s not enough, as this article shows - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/north/new-victorian-sheriffs-officers-to-crack-down-on-fine-evaders/story-fnglenug-1226794387684 - they have just employed an additional 10 sheriff’s officers to help them in their quest to force people to “pay up” before anyone has even seen the inside of a court room, let alone been “convicted” of anything.

Mr Brendan Facey needs to understand the ramifications of the Imperial Acts Application Act – specifically the section noted above – and accept that people are not trying to “cheat” the system at all. Most people are genuine, law abiding motorists who have been targeted by a corrupt, revenue focused system, despite doing nothing “wrong”.

If anyone is trying to “cheat the system”, it is the Sheriff’s officers themselves who are trying to enforce fines that have not yet gone through proper due process!

- The truth about the police

Most of the people that we speak to have a strong dislike, and sometimes even fear of the police, yet we believe that this is unfounded. Most police entered the force with a true desire to “do good” and to help their fellow man. Unfortunately, however, this desire was corrupted from way back in the beginning, during their training. The powers-that-be forced these young people, often fresh out of high school, to sit through graphic videos of crushed cars and mangled bodies and they reinforced the lie that these things occur as a result of “speeding motorists”.

Now, as we have detailed on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - for over 8 years now – click the “Crash Statistics” link – “speed” is only “a” factor (not “the” factor) in just 5% of accidents, yet that is what young recruits are brainwashed into believing.

So, with their genuine desire to help save lives, they go out in force to clamp down on speeding motorists with the misplaced belief that they are really “making a difference” when, the reality is, that they are simply glorified revenue raisers for the government.

There is a concept that many of us are aware of, that is, “you can’t fix a problem that you don’t know that you have”, so rather than “hating” the police or abusing them during their course of duty, instead, we would like to see Aussie motorists helping to educate the police about the truth about fines. Direct them to our website, urge them to read our e-book and, if you really want to challenge them, send them a copy of this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg

Please feel free to pass that video around far and wide, post it on Facebook and the like and let’s inform and educate not only the motoring public in Australia but also the policy enforcers as well.

Last month, we reported on this great article from the Sydney Morning herald - http://www.smh.com.au/comment/have-siren-will-harass-in-nsw-the-policed-state-20150322-1m504p.html - where the author detailed the fact that Aussie motorists were simply being used as “cash cows” for the government. Well, that same author followed up that article with another great article that followed the journey of the woman who was issued with that ticket, as she took it to court.

You can read that follow up article here - http://www.smh.com.au/comment/how-the-police-waste-our-time-on-a-massive-scale-20150412-1mj1te.touch.html In this latest article, he details how just 21% of police time is actually used on true criminal investigation, which we believe is outrageous – after all, that’s what we pay them for via our taxes.

He goes onto detail how police in NSW alone stop around 6 million people a year and issue them with fines, despite those motorists doing absolutely nothing “wrong”. As he says, “Most people just pay the fine, which is what the police and court system count on. It's a growing revenue stream for the government.”

Thankfully, as we encourage our Members to do, the lady in question from his original article chose not to just blindly “pay up” and, instead, she challenged the fine in court and beat it! In this ANZAC Day email update, we want to urge all motorists to stand up and fight back against every unjust and unlawful fine that they receive – just like our diggers stood up and fought for our freedoms and liberties to be protected.

And, it’s not just us urging people to fight back either, it is retired police officers too. We urge you all to read the comments from Stan (not his real name) on our Advanced Membership Home page - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/memberspage.php – and see why he also recommends a systematic approach to challenging your fines.

Finally, we would ask you all to read this short post from a retired police chief in the US, who explains why we have cameras, what the true purpose of police is and what the biggest obstacle is to bringing about some real change when it comes to true “road safety” initiatives - http://armstrongeconomics.com/2015/04/19/comment-from-retired-police-chief/

- Our friends at the Know Your Rights group

As many of you know, we have been working very hard with one of our founding members who has gone onto start the Know your Rights group – http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/  - around the middle of last year.

We know that a number of our Members are interested in finding out more than just how to defeat unjust and unlawful fines and the Know Your Rights group cover a wide range of different topics from eliminating personal tax obligations through to challenging the banks and even expanding on the “Strawman” concept that we touch on very briefly in our e-book.

As we detailed at the beginning of this e-mail update, fines are just one very small part of understanding and fighting for our rights overall but they are a great place to start. If, however, you want to find out more, we urge you to check out their website - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/

Their website is completely free to access and there is a ton of great information on it. They also have a huge Facebook following, which you can also join for free – just search for Know Your Rights under Facebook or click this link - https://www.facebook.com/groups/602044286578320/  Please be sure to read the Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards section at the end of this e-mail to find out how to join our Facebook group and support us too.

We were part of their Melbourne seminar last week in Deer Park which was incredible opportunity to learn a whole range of interesting and powerful topics and they are running another seminar in Adelaide in May and we would certainly encourage anyone who is in the Adelaide area to get along to that seminar if they can. You can find out more about the exact topics that are actually covered at those seminars, as well as reading and viewing testimonials from previous attendees via their Seminar page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/

They also run a weekly internet radio broadcast and they have covered some incredible topics over the last 9 months or so. They have done a number of eye-opening interviews with various people, including: Darryl O’Brien (who used to run all the CLRG meetings), David Woods (an ex-police officer who now teaches people about their rights), John Vico (the law student who took on CarePark and beat them), Owen Godfrey (the ex-police officer who now heads up the No Speed Cameras party) and, Larry Hannigan (who wrote, amongst other things, “The Voice of the Constitution”)

You can listen in to their broadcasts live each Tuesday night between 8pm and 10pm, you can e-mail, text or phone them with questions live on the air and you can also download any of their past podcasts as well via their Radio Show page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/

The guys are huge supporters of the work that we do here at Aussie Speeding Fines and we encourage you to support them in return by joining up as a Member - http://knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/members/ - or simply making a small donation to help keep them and their radio show going each week.

As many of you know, we almost never endorse other people or products so you know that on the very rare occasion that we do, that we have absolute faith and belief in what we are recommending.

Again, keeping in line with this week’s ANZAC Day edition of our e-mail update, it’s all about learning about your rights, taking action and fighting back for our freedom and liberties, just as our fallen heroes did for us 100 years ago.

  - Latest Testimonials and feedback

Speaking of the know Your Rights group, we received a very powerful e-mail from one of their listeners, who also happens to be an ASF Member, and this is what he had to say about a recent matter that he took to the courts that has been dragging on for some time now:

An incredibly big thank you and congratulations to you Mike, Brenton and the rest of the team at KYR and ASF.

As a follow up to the email below which you addressed on RATFM on 21/4, I went to court for the appeal today.

WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After shitting myself for the last 2 weeks, I listened to what you had to say about my email on Tue night and took it all on board. Mike, you simplified my case but more than anything, gave me the confidence to walk into the court reasonably confident and well prepared. I must have done a 100hrs preparation for a 10min hearing.

But what actually happened is what really gobsmacked me.

I didn’t have to say a thing!!!!!!!!

The SDRO didn’t turn up. They just provided a submission which the magistrate read through after which he said he upheld my appeal.

He explained that I didn’t know about the penalties (because I had returned them to sender unopened) and that the final penalty notice by email was not served properly.

The matter didn’t even go back to SDRO. He booked another court hearing after asking me how I pleaded, and after pleading not guilty we are going to court in June, which is what I have been after all along.

My take on this-

All the blustering and bullying in the correspondence with the SDRO and refusing to annul the enforcement order was just bluff. They were on thin ice and when it came to the crunch in the appeal, they caved in.

Mike, this is testament to what you keep saying about challenging everything because it’s only when we all do that, the system will finally take notice. A lot of their armoury is the intimidation by the system, the court rooms and the government agencies. It is based on fear, bullying and bluff but if you persist, you’ll come through.

Again, a huge thank you.

 

Wolfgang

This e-mail highlights a fact that we have been saying for many years now – the minute you blindly “pay up”, that’s it, it’s all over, there is simply nothing more that you can do. But, the longer you keep fighting, the more opportunities that there are for things to “just happen” – like the agency representatives not turning up - that can ultimately mean that you win!

2 April 2015
Our 25% off Easter promotion has been extended and some other really positive news!

- Details of our 25% off Easter promotion

We have been absolutely shocked and appalled by the number of mobile speed cameras that we have seen set up in the past 24 hours that are clearly not being set up in known blackspot areas and are, instead, being installed in places that are likely to catch the most innocent drivers who, at best, have merely accidentally drifted over some artificially reduced speed limit – all in the name of blatant revenue raising.

As such, we have decided to extend our Easter promotion over the course of this entire Easter break to ensure that as many motorists as possible have access to our information at the lowest possible price. But, we urge you not to leave it until the last, minute. Don’t wait until you have actually received an unjust and unlawful fine – get a copy of our e-book now – at a full 25% off the regular price – before you get a fine so that you are fully informed about your rights and know how to deal with the inevitable when you return home from your break to find a fine in the mail.

Our Easter promotion will now finish at midnight on Easter Monday, the 6th of April, so please be sure to 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 e-book straight away. All you need to do to take advantage of this fantastic offer is to enter the word “Easter” into the coupon code box that comes up on the order page and you will automatically receive our E-Book Membership at 25% off the already exceptional one-off price.

And please remember that this is a one-off fee for life and, it not only includes a copy of the e-book itself but also free e-book updates for life, free 24/7 e-mail support and free regular e-mail updates for life as well. Please be sure to pass the details of this great offer onto everyone on your contact list, post it on Facebook and let’s get every motorist to successfully challenge every unjust and unlawful fine that they receive.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very safe and Happy Easter and, as a great lead in to the Easter break, we have two really positive articles to share with you in the sections below.

- Hundreds of millions of dollars lost in unpaid fines

We came across the following article - http://www.afr.com/technology/victorian-government-kicks-out-it-supplier-after-infringement-management-system-blowout-20150330-1m9h8t - from the Financial Review just a few days ago and the news just gets better and better.

Firstly, the over-arching reign of Tenix Solutions seems to be finally coming to an end – which is a huge win for all Aussie motorists because, through their contracts with the governments of this fine country (pun intended),  Tenix have been screwing over innocent Aussie motorists for way too long now.

The article explains the delays and budget blowouts of the current IT contract with Tenix Solutions but, more importantly, the article details that these issues have caused a loss of fine revenue of $1.2 billion – that is by far and wide the best news we have heard all year and we urge you to pass this great news onto others.

 There is a saying that the Know Your Rights guys use that says “If you owe the bank a million dollars and you can’t pay then you have a problem, but, if you owe the bank a billion dollars and you can’t pay, then the bank has a problem”. The fact that Tenix Solutions has now cost the Victorian government $1.2 billion means that they – both Tenix and the government – have a big problem!

The cracks in the system are really starting to appear now and this is hitting them where it hurts – in their back pocket! $1.2 billion worth of unexecuted warrants is massive and, if we can encourage everyone from this point forward to challenge every fine they receive – rather than just blindly “paying up” – we can really capitalise on this crack” and one and for all “shatter the system”!

We have been given a great opportunity here so let’s not waste it – be sure to fight every fine you get and encourage others to do the same.

- What a lawyer has to say about Aussie Speeding Fines

Every so often someone e-mails us with a reference to some completely biased, unsubstantiated rubbish that a so-called “traffic lawyer” has written about us. We ignored his crap for a while but eventually posted some responses to his garbage – which are all addressed on our FAQ page – because, sadly, some people were buying into it and missing out on our invaluable, licence saving e-book and on-going support as a result.

Well, now we have been contacted by a real laywer, who recently completed his law degree and, as someone who has not been indoctrinated into “the system” completely yet, he actually has a brain and chooses to use it and has taken on board the information on our website and in our e-book and he recently wrote us a brilliant e-mail, which we have chosen to share with you below.

Dear ASF,

I am taking this opportunity to provide ASF with some feedback, regarding the information that has been supplied to me through your establishment, and Mike Palmer with the Know Your Rights group.

In November 2014, I had a Magistrates court hearing for a red light camera alleged offence in Parramatta NSW. It was an absolute circus to say the least. I walked into court armed to the teeth, I followed many of the arguments provided to us members like;

1. Imperial Acts section 8 sub-section 12

2. Commonwealth Constitution  s115, s117, s118

3. Currency Act s9, s11, s16, s21

4. Acts Interpretation Act 1901  s15A

4. Port of Portland v State of Victoria

5. Liberato v R

The only thing extra I added was Adler v George [1964] 2 QB 7 = The golden rule in interpretation of law is that the literal approach should be taken, unless it creates an absurdity. Alleging that I was the responsible person of a red light camera offence, when I was not the driver is an absurdity. If the driver killed a man or women how would the police charge me for the offence? It is very evident that the responsible person can only be the driver at the time of the offence and no other, regardless what statute says.

There were 8 police officers hearing the case and they were stunned at all the legal arguments that were posed. The RMS (Road Management Services) Prosecutor was assisted by the police prosecutor to run the case and research all my submissions. If that was not enough 2 guys from the camera unit came in to lend a hand. When the magistrate came to her determination she stated; “although she believed my evidence that I had given, it was unfortunate that she did believe I was the responsible person as the keys were left with me"

I was furious, I had been obliviously ripped off and I was ready to wipe the smirk off the prosecutors face. I went straight to the clerk’s office and appealed to the Parramatta district court, the cost was $108. On Monday 16 March I had my hearing in the district court.

The judge read the transcript for about 20 minutes then he looked at me and said:

“Do you work for foreign affairs?”

I replied: “No not yet”

Judge: "Seems you got into a heated tangle with the magistrate, that is very un-diplomatic of you"

I replied: "really? That's not how it was at all. I am very passionate about my rights, and I do not appreciate being framed for an offence I have not committed that's all.”

Judge: “I don't need to hear anything else from you thanks.”

At this stage I was so furious thinking they are going to do it to me again (rip me off), I was not afforded a chance to speak. I was already thinking about my appeal to the Supreme court when the judge said:

Judge: "you look so amazed"

Me: "well, I have not had an opportunity to speak"

Judge: "that is because you are a winner today"

Judge asked prosecutor if he had anything to add and then gave his determination case was quashed.

It is very simple to understand why the judge quashed the case. He read through the 22 page transcript with all the arguments that ASF and Know Your Rights Group have taught us. I have just added one extra case but the rest is all the teachings from these great two groups. I felt I had to pass this feedback on as I go on Facebook from time to time, and some people have written that the info is all crap, it does not work, etc etc.

Well, the info does work, if you are prepared to put in the work and appeal once the Magistrates court goes against you.

The Magistrates court is like going to the circus, they will more than likely rule against you. The fact that the district court judge dismissed the case in under 5 minutes after reading the transcript tells me two things;

1. The Magistrate should have done exactly the same (dismiss the case) but because there were over 10 cops in court there was no chance I would get the victory, and

2. The district court judge read the arguments and knew exactly how correct they were. He knew these constitutional arguments, Imperial laws, currency laws, are all valid, alive and well. This would be the only explanation why the case was dismissed without saying a word on my behalf.

Members, all this information does work and it is very effective, regardless of what others might say. Never give up, and appeal your case until you get what you are seeking. I had my conviction quashed and was given $675 in costs, although I was seeking $1,200. Lastly, as I walked out I made sure that I waited for Mr Prosecutor to walk out of the courtroom and just had a grin from ear to ear (and that is exactly what this was all about)

Thank you kindly to ASF & KYRG for all the assistance and guidance over the years (welcome to share this post)

Warm Regards,

John - NSW

Not only has John used the very arguments that we detail in our e-book – the same arguments that certain other so-called “lawyers” say don’t work – but he has also had costs awarded in his favour as well.

The key is, as John says, don’t give up too early. Most people write a letter or two or attend one court hearing and then give in and say “it’s too hard to fight” or “the e-book doesn’t work” but, as John clearly explains, you need to keep fighting and putting these arguments forward and, eventually, they most assuredly will work!

And, as we’ve said many times before, if everyone not only challenged every fine that they received but also asked for costs as well, when they won, as we noted in the section above, we would be able to “shatter the system” in no time at all!

So, please, if you, or anyone you know is yet to get their own copy of our powerful e-book, then be sure to take advantage of the current 25% discount offer – as is detailed in the opening section of this e-mail update - and let’s teach these revenue raising goons that the more fines they issue, the more people will fight back, fill up the courts and request costs, and the more it will cost the governments in the long run. Let’s force them stop them issuing ridiculous, arbitrary fines that have absolutely nothing to do with “road safety” and let’s bring in some initiatives – such as the ones on our Vision for the Future page – http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - that really will make a difference!

- Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards

So, now you can see how powerful the Aussie Speeding Fines information is, what can you do to help us get our invaluable, licence saving information into the hands of every motorist before they get a fine?

30 March 2015
25% off Easter promotion now on and more interesting media articles!

- Intro

It appears as though our previous e-mail update was a bit unclear and some people took it the wrong way and, for that, we certainly apologise. We acknowledge the reason that many people hadn’t questioned where an e-mail update was at, earlier than last week, was because they had taken note of the fact that we are always saying that we are very busy – which, of course, is correct – and had chosen not to e-mail us and “harass us” but certainly were aware of the fact that we hadn’t written in a while. So, if we upset or annoyed anyone with our last e-mail update, please accept our sincere apologies, that was most assuredly not our intention.

The reality is that we have been inundated with emails of support and, other than explaining to us in some not-too-uncertain terms that people were well and truly aware of the fact that there hadn’t been an e-mail update for a while but were doing us a favour by not mentioning it, on the whole, the feedback we received was very positive – please see our Latest Testimonials and Feedback section below for some examples.  So, we would like to not only thank you all but to also reward you for your on-going support as well.

Accordingly, we are running a 25% off Easter discount promotion for the remainder of this week. Please see the section below for full details. The revenue raising goons will be out in full force over the coming long weekend and we want to do our bit to assist all Aussie motorists and to ensure that there is no barrier to anyone having access to our licence-saving information.

So, to find out the full details of this exceptional offer and how to take advantage of it, as well as reading some new media articles which re-iterate the need to fight back against all unjust and unlawful fines, please read on ....

- Our 25% off Easter promotion

Easter is nearly upon us and many motorists have the luxury of having some time off - many get to head off on a short break and others tend to use this as a time to catch up with friends and family.

So, rather than waste money on chocolate eggs and bunnies that will be quickly eaten and forgotten, why not consider buying an E-Book Membership for a friend, family or loved one. Over the years – and ASF has been going for over 8 years now - we have been told by many Members that their e-books are much treasured and loved (especially those that were received as a gift) and have saved them immeasurable amounts of money as well as giving them confidence, freedom and a feeling of power and certainty when faced with unjust and unlawful traffic fines.

This is a perfect opportunity to share that gift of freedom, power and confidence, whilst also, in turn, helping to inform and educate your fellow motorists and to assist us, and yourselves, in helping to bring about some real changes in this country. So, if you would like to take advantage of this exceptional offer – either for yourself or for someone else – simply enter the word EASTER into the coupon code box that comes up on the order page and the discount will automatically be applied to your order. Please note that this discount only applies to full E-Book Member packages and it will only apply until midnight on Good Friday.

We would also ask that you please be sure to pass this e-mail onto others – after removing the unsubscribe link at the bottom – or, at the very least, the details of this great Easter promotion, around to others on your contact list, share it around on Facebook etc.

Remember, this will be the last big push for holiday revenue for the governments and their agents until the Queen’s birthday holiday in June so you can be assured that they will be out in force and, therefore, that chances that you will receive some kind of an unjust and/or unlawful fine over the course of the Easter break is higher than ever before. Please don’t wait until the inevitable happens though because then you have already missed out on some great strategies for avoiding the fine altogether.

Grab a copy of our e-book now – by going to our E-Book Membership’s page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and following the steps detailed above to take advantage of our 255 discount offer.

- Can police really book you on an “estimate” of your speed?

We have received a number of e-mails and Facebook posts about some media stories regarding the police booking motorists based on an “estimation” of their speed and many people have been questioning this so we thought this would be a good opportunity to clarify some points for you all.

Firstly, this radio broadcast explains the situation quite well - http://media.brisbanetimes.com.au/news/qld-news/police-guess-speeds-for-fines-6293114.html?eid=cpc:nnn-14omn2217-optim-nnn:outbrain-05/01/2015-outbrain_paid-dom-displayad-nnn-brt-nnn&campaign_code=15caf003&promote_channel=sem&utm_source=outbrain&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=paid%20outbrain – the police do, in fact, use “estimation” as a valid form of checking someone’s speed. Now, they will “generally” then use a device to confirm or verify that estimation but they are not required by law to do so.

Now, having said that, there are some other important points to note. The issue with the way police currently use hand held speed detection devices is that they generally point the device at the first vehicle that comes around a bend or over a hill and that is not allowed by the manufacturers – they require a full “tracking history” to be provided before the reading from speed detection device can be used in court. This is all explained in much greater detail – including a copy of the actual wording from the manufacturers training manuals themselves – in our e-book.

The officer being interviewed in the broadcast above openly admits that if a motorist was booked on a “estimation” in this scenario alone, it would never stand up in court and, given that the devices are not being used correctly and are also fundamentally flawed, when you argue these points correctly, any on-the-spot speeding fine will also not stand up in court.

Now, the police are, indeed, allowed to issue you a fine based on their estimation alone, without using a hand held speed detection device to confirm that but, if that happens and you challenge it, they have to provide proof, “beyond a reasonable doubt” of that fact. Now, the suggestion that the police use “very accurate, special speedometers” is a load of rubbish! The speedometers are exactly the same as every other speedo out there, it’s just that they have supposedly been “tested and calibrated”. Again, as we explain in the e-book, it is a matter of finding out what they have been “tested and calibrated” against and whether that testing and calibration comply with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act – which it doesn’t – and, again, establishing “reasonable doubt” to successfully challenge the fine.

Furthermore, any suggestion that any police officer can sit behind another vehicle for a certain period of time, without any fluctuation in speed – which is what would be required to get an accurate “guesstimation” - is absolutely absurd. Remember, most fixed cameras that have been installed on bridges have been turned off at one point in time or another because just a few millimetres of movement in a solid structure like a bridge was shown to produce inaccurate readings with the devices mounted to them. To suggest that a cop can sit behind a moving vehicle, for an extended period of time, to get an accurate reading based on a speedo that hasn’t been properly tested and calibrated is, quite simply a joke!

So, hopefully this answers some of the many questions we have had recently on this topic and, once again, shows you how simply all on-the-spot speeding fines can be challenged, once you are armed with the correct information.

- Incredible article in the mainstream media

Many people also sent us a link via e-mail and Facebook to a very powerful article that was recently run in the Sydney Morning Herald. We were absolutely gob-smacked when we read the article because we couldn’t believe that the mainstream media would print such an open and honest account of the current situation.

In any event, they did and our highest commendation goes out to the author of the article, Mr Paul Sheehan, for obviously writing such a great piece, and also to the editor for allowing it to run. You can read the full article that we are referring to here - http://www.smh.com.au/comment/have-siren-will-harass-in-nsw-the-policed-state-20150322-1m504p.html

This brilliant article mirrors so much of what we say in our regular e-mail updates and, despite that fact that it refers specifically to NSW Police, everyone reading it will quickly realize that it applies equally to all police in all States and territories.

As you know, we love to add our two cents worth and expand on most of media articles that we  refer to but this one was written so brilliantly and reinforces exactly what we have been saying all along so well that there is really nothing for us to add!

The only thing we would say is that Mr Sheehan has identified the issues perfectly but has either forgotten to mention – or, more likely, was forbidden from mentioning – that what we now need to do to put an end to this madness is for everyone to challenge every unjust and unlawful fine that they receive.

- Our friends at the Know Your Rights group

As many of you know, we have been working very hard with one of our founding members who has gone onto start the Know your Rights group – http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/  - around the middle of last year.

We know that a number of our Members are interested in finding out more than just how to defeat unjust and unlawful fines and the Know Your Rights group cover a wide range of different topics from eliminating personal tax obligations through to challenging the banks and even expanding on the “Strawman” concept that we touch on very briefly in our e-book.

They are now running seminars in most major cities every month or so and they just ran another very successful seminar in Perth this past weekend and then they have their next major seminar in Melbourne on the 18th of April.

  - Latest Testimonials and feedback

As we explained at the beginning of this e-mail, we received a number of really positive e-mails with stories of success and general feedback and support and we have included a few of those for you below.

Our first is from a Member who successfully used the information in our e–book to defeat a speeding fine on behalf of his wife – it also shows the general apathy of the average Aussie motorist, however, and what can really be achieved when we break through that apathetic state and take action!

Hi Folks

Been reading through the articles and the links attached. The major problem is that everyone is too lazy and have the notion of :”It’s too hard, I am scared to go to court and a list of other pathetic excuses. I don't know what it is with people that they are so apathetic. About two months ago,  my wife got pinged for being 10Km over the stupid 50Kmh speed limit near home. I told her to use the information in the book and on the CD. Her reply left me speechless, in that she said she didn't have the time and neither could she get time off work to fight this speeding ticket.

I decided to take the matter into my own hands and dealt with it, using the letters and backed up some of the letters that I have printed out, and filed them away for future reference in regards to the accuracy of the camera.

I duly wrote the letter and as my header it stated  “WITHOUT PREJUDICE”. May I make a small suggestion that when people write to the relevant departments they use the above header. I think we get a better hearing that we are not being rude, or accusing anyone outright. Has always worked for me throughout my life.

I sent every bit of information to the traffic department that deals with fines etc.

A few weeks later I received a letter stating that the fine had been withdrawn.

Score : Traffic Office – 0  Me – 1

We live in Perth and in my area where we live we know exactly where the camera are and of course take note of the speedometer.I also use a GPS to record my true speed and know of several cases where the data was downloaded from the GPS and used as evidence in a case a few years ago. Both cases were dismissed as the GPS speed reading was picked up by no less than 8 satellites and was proven beyond all reasonable doubt that the speed camera was wrong.

Finally I had my speedometer recalculated to over read by 6 KMH many years ago, and have gone through many a speed camera and never been pinged. I await the day I do get pinged and then it’s on for one and all.

Regards

Peter- WA

Our second is a short and sweet one form another Member who has successfully used our e-book to defeat two speeding fines:

Gentlemen!!

Stay calm. I am a member and have just had my second letter back from SAPOL cancelling my original fine notice ( 2 separate matters some two years apart) for radar infringements.

So, don’t panic yet. I guess many like me join, use the successful actions recommend in your book, and don’t have much to say except recommend you to others , which I do.

Tony – S.A.

And, our final e-mail is a little more detailed but it again explains how a Member successfully used our information in court to defeat a speeding fine and, you will note, that it refers to the very information covered in this e-mail update about establishing “reasonable doubt” and section 10 of the NMA, to have the charge dismissed.

Hi there Aussie Speeding fines,

Yea, the old slogan, "she will be right mate" is sadly still very much imprinted in the Aussie character, also the term, "don't rock the boat".

I have held off because I have been awaiting the outcome of my speeding fine contest in court.  I went through the three step process which the SDRO of NSW blatantly refused to abide by, so I had to take the court election option.


I was in court for the best part of 1.5 hours. The first hearing was adjourned because there was no RMS prosecutor present and no brief of evidence.


The second hearing was on 16 March 2015. I had prepared my file along the lines as outlined in the Speeding Fines Handbook, but the judge did not allow me to enter evidence from another case.


Nevertheless, I created sufficient doubt by making up three photos, 1 the original taken by the camera. 2, I replaced my car with another vehicle and 3, I placed a completely different traffic scenario on it, while all the while keeping the original algorythm imprint. I did this with my computer and a simple photo editing software to show the judge how easy it is to manipulate the images.


Next I produced a fact sheet from the SDRO, where it states, photos downloaded are the original and unaltered images that will be produced in court..Further down it read on "how to obtain a photo", photos downloaded are not suitable for evidence in court. (Neath trick if you fall for it)! When I asked the prosecutor whether he could under oath state that the images have not been tampered with, he just stood there dumbfounded.


He then asked me if I was an expert on speed cameras? I replied, I do not need to be a rocket scientist to work these speed cameras out. It is all a matter of time and distance which can be worked out by anyone using normal mathematics learned in school.


I also pointed out to the judge section 10 of the NMA and that the devices used by the RNS were not approved under the act and the regulations. And that section 10 was mandatory and therefore section 109 of the Constitution over rules state legislation.


To cut a long story short and there is more to it. I created enough doubt to secure a section 10 -1a dismissal (no conviction recorded, no fine to pay).


The prosecutor was not very happy.

Regards,

Johann - NSW

19 March 2015
Our latest, long-awaited e-mail update is here and, wow, is it powerful!

- Intro

We last wrote to everyone on Australia Day and part of the reason for that is because we have been flat out working with a number of new groups, trying to expand our circle of influence – see the sections towards the end of this e-mail. The other reason it has been that long since an update though, is because we wanted to see how long it would take before anyone actually noticed that we hadn’t sent one out.

Sadly, we have only just now, in the past week or so, started receiving e-mails from people questioning what has happened to our regular updates. This shows us that A) people really don’t take any notice of the e-mail updates that we send out and/or B) that people are simply still too apathetic to even bother writing a simple e-mail to chase us up. Either way, we are extremely disappointed by this result.

We receive so many media articles, each and every week, detailing the corruption and ineffectiveness of the current system yet, the general population still simply doesn’t seem to care – we just don’t understand it! Our freedoms are being eroded day-by-day, the powers-that-be are exercising more and more control over us and yet, the general Aussie motorist continues to blindly believe the government propaganda, they remain on their collective asses and they continue to bleat the mantra “it’s too hard to fight back.”

People, what do we have to do to get you to take action???

Every week we get e-mails complaining how tough things have become, how much harder it is to fight back against unjust and unlawful fines and how people are tempted to just give in and “pay up” and our response to each and every one of those people is the same – the reason that we are in this mess is because those that came before us gave up too easily! So, if you give up too then what is it going to be like in another 5, 10 or 20 years for our children and our children’s children etc.!

Please, give this some serious thought when you are facing your next fine or, even when you are deciding whether to forward this e-mail onto your family and friends – after removing the “un-subscribe” link from the bottom first though, to avoid anyone accidentally removing you form our database.

In any event, it was an interesting, and frustrating experiment, to see just how few people actually read and take notice of our e-mail updates – we just hope that changes, before it’s too late and we become completely controlled with no way to fight back!

We’re going to resume our regular e-mail updates again now though and we certainly hope that they are spread far and wide and that people actually take notice of them and, more importantly, take action based on the information contained in them.

Maybe some of the shocking stories that are covered in this e-mail update might finally wake some more people up in regards to what is really going on out there and will hopefully be enough to spur everyone reading this into taking action!

- The Bad

We know that there are many motorists out there who still believe that speeding fines are a “good” thing and they continue to buy into the government propaganda that “speed kills” and/or that “Speed cameras save lives”. Well, for anyone like that out there, please sure to read this article – http://www.caradvice.com.au/332771/are-speed-cameras-killing-us-the-stats-say-yes/ - in which a study has shown that speed cameras are actually killing us!

Almost every time we send out an e-mail update, we explain that more and more cameras are being installed every week yet they do nothing to reduce accidents and, in fact, in many States, the road toll continues to rise – despite improvements in car safety and the response times and services of medical assistance. Well, this article reinforces everything we have been saying for the past 8 years!

We need to focus on drunk and drug affected drivers and not motorists doing a mere 5 or 10 k’s over some arbitrarily – and often artificially reduced – posted “speed limit”, when it is completely safe to do so. The issue is that there is no automated revenue raising system for catching drunk and drug affected drivers so the governments have no interest in focussing on those true “road safety” initiatives. Instead, they want to reduce speed limits more and more and then, reduce the tolerances of those newly reduced limits, to fine even more drivers.

Don’t believe us? Then check out this story from a Current Affair - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article/8954478/drivers-fined-for-low-level-speeding This video clearly shows how absolutely hooked the governments are on revenue from unjust and unlawful fines and how the current system is plain and simply focussed on revenue raising and not “road safety” at all.

Just look at some of the figures they quote; “half a billion dollars a year from speeding fines alone”, “half a million dollars a day  in Victoria alone, for speeding fines of less than 10k’s over” – this is insane!!! We challenge any police officer to actually prove that “low level speeding” is anywhere near as “dangerous” as they claim it is. Is it “horrific” for the police to attend fatal accidents – absolutely, we’re certain that it is, we certainly wouldn’t like to do it - but stop lying to the public, simply to support the government’s revenue raising goals, and blaming it on low level speeding which has virtually no correlation to fatal accidents at all.

The most important line in that story, for readers of this e-mail, is where the lawyer correctly states that you have a right to challenge any unjust, unfair and/or unlawful fine. In fact, we would argue that you have an obligation to do so!

So, if you or someone you know is yet to get our licence-saving e-book, which is full of proven, step-by-step strategies for defeating these very types of unjust and unlawful fines, then please go to our E-Book Membership page – http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - and sign up now! And remember, it’s not just the e-book and the 30 day money-back guarantee that you are getting, it is also the free updates for life, as well as the on-going e-mail support and assistance for life as well, which many Members find is just as valuable, if not more so, than the e-book itself.

At the end of the day, we’re not about “selling books”, we’re about informing and educating the motoring public about their rights and assisting them and supporting them in standing up for those rights and bringing about some real change – as we explain on our FAQ page, we do still need to eat and continuing our research though, so we can’t do it for nothing.

- The Worse

Sadly, it gets worse than the stories we detailed above though, in fact, much worse! As this article shows – http://www.geelongadvertiser.com.au/news/geelong/camouflaged-cops-are-catching-speeders-on-the-geelong-ring-road/story-fnjuhovy-1227202602964 - the police are now hiding in the bushes all in the name of blatant revenue raising.

It amazes us that the Geelong Advertiser can get away with printing this article, specifically lines such as, “Senior Constable Sam Thorley said “unpopular” operation detected about 16 speeding drivers an hour on Thursday afternoon, highlighting police concern for adherence to the law.” yet it is the police themselves that are not adhering to the law! The police Site Selection Criteria manual – which is available to download from our “Downloads” page on our Advanced Membership website - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/download.php - clearly states that in order “To achieve the essential ingredient of community support and program ownership, there must be a popular belief that the enforcement is fair, impartial and objectively administered in the community interest based totally on the achievement of road safety objectives”. Now, is there anyone out there reading this that believes that the practice of hiding in the bushes complies with this “essential” part of their own manual?

Not only that but the operators manuals for the various speed detection devices being used – which, again, can all be downloaded from the link above – clearly state that the devices are to be used as close to parallel to the road as possible and at the same height as the road. Have another look at that image at the top of that article and see if you believe that this activity complies!

Unfortunately, it is even worse than just the issues detailed above, the reality is, as the opening line of this related article states - http://beforeitsnews.com/economy/2015/02/australian-police-hiding-in-woods-to-catch-speeders-2697378.html - “The police are now waging war against the public to raise money for government to fund their own salaries.” Well, if it’s a war they want, then it’s a war they will get. Let’s not forget the information that we provided in our last e-mail update, which explained that Aussies are known the world over as some of the toughest fighters of all – if the police and government want to go to war with us then they do so at their own peril.

Sadly, as we detailed out the outset of this e-mail, on a national scale, the following and support that we get from motorists in general is non-existent to minimal – apart from a few die-hard Members, who we really appreciate. But, and it’s a big “but”, when enough people start hurting and these ridiculous strategies start really affecting the average Aussie motorists personally, we know that they will fight back harder than anyone else. We just hope that it doesn’t take a full blown “war” to make that happen and, when you are armed with all the information in our e-book, it shouldn’t need to!

- The Horrendous

And, as if the two sections above weren’t bad enough, the reality is that, in Australia, things are now even more horrendous than everything we’ve outlined so far. Sadly, we came across the following article yesterday – http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/attorney-general-john-rau-to-give-police-new-powers-for-on-the-spot-scans/story-fni6uo1m-1227268675915 -  and it really does sound the death knell of our freedoms if we don’t stand up and fight back quickly!

Now, if this doesn’t outrage every Aussie motorist then we really don’t know what will.

Yes, of course, “on the surface of it” all the BS government propaganda makes it sound like a good thing – it will help to catch criminals and, if you haven’t done anything “wrong” then you have nothing to hide or worry about. But, let’s look a little deeper, shall we.

Prior to this new proposed legislation, the police could only take your fingerprints if you had been arrested. This meant that the police had to have a real  belief that you had committed a crime – if they didn’t, you could sue them for false arrest and make a civil claim against them.

However, with this new, proposed legislation, they get to take your fingerprints just on the “say-so” that they believe that you have committed a crime or are about to commit or a crime, or, just because they think you might be able to assist them with the investigation of an “offence”. You have no recourse against them and you cannot sue them for anything if you are proven to be innocent, as you could have done previously.

What’s worse, is that they will keep those fingerprints on file indefinitely and, one way or the other, at some point in time in the future, they will almost certainly be used against you for something.

But, let’s look into it even deeper. This proposed legislation would allow the police to fingerprint you because of their “belief” that you were able to “help them” with any minor “offence” – not wearing a bike helmet, littering, failing to touch on with a Myki card – remember, these are all “offences” in the strict sense of the word and that is the term that is used in this new legislation.

Let us not forget the recent ruling by His Honour, Justice Stephen Kaye in the case of DPP v Hamilton – which, again, can be downloaded from the “Downloads” page of our Advanced Membership website - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/download.php - where His Honour stated that you do not have to speak to the police unless you are under arrest.

This proposed new legislation would go against that ruling and would also go against this recent ruling - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-06-21/melbourne-court-rules-random-police-checks-27not-lawful27/4772154 - that random police checks are not lawful.

And, to top it all off, one of their major claims is that this legislation will help police to catch motorists trying to “evade police over outstanding warrants”. The problem is, of course, that, pursuant to Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act, almost all of those warrants are illegal and void because those people have never actually been convicted by a court of competent jurisdiction.

So, hopefully you can clearly see that this legislation is completely unlawful and is in breach of many of our common law rights – right to travel freely without hindrance, right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, right not to incriminate one’s self etc. but, the problem is that they will almost certainly still approve this legislation – despite all of these issues – if we don’t force them to listen to our Will.

So, please take a few minutes to write a simple letter to your local MP, print out and attach a copy of the article referring to the proposed legislation and make it crystal clear that you do not want this legislation enacted, nor do you want any other similar legislation brought in, that would, in any way reduce or minimise your common law rights. Only by sending a united message, will we be able to achieve the desired result in this instance.

And, please, don’t be put off by the fact that this is being discussed in Adelaide, rest assured that, once passed there it will quickly be introduced into other States and territories too – we need to put a stop to it now, before it gets off the ground.

And, last but not least, just stop and think for a minute about how this proposed legislation even came into being. Do you honestly believe that if we, the collective Australian motoring public were exercising our rights on a daily basis, if we were regularly and correctly voicing our Will and withdrawing our Consent whenever necessary, that they would be discussing outrageous legislation such as this?

We need to fight back and the simplest way to do that is to hit them where it hurts – in their pockets! Vote them out of office at election time, bury them in paperwork - with letters reminding them of the fact that they are elected into power by us to do  our  bidding - and, most of all, fight back and challenge every unjust and unlawful fine you receive and encourage others that you know to do the same and stop the money blindly rolling into their coffers!

- Thankfully, it’s not all bad though

Thankfully, as the heading to this section says, it’s not all bad news this week. In addition to the articles that we have already detailed in the sections above, we also came across a great article recently that shows that $440,000 worth of speeding fines have been successfully avoided from just two cameras in Adelaide in just a 6 month period. You can read the full article here - http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/unclear-photos-from-two-fixed-speed-cameras-on-south-eastern-freeway-see-drivers-off-in-a-flash-and-avoiding-fines/story-fni6uo1m-1227172250212

Now the beauty of this article is that it shows that over 20% of the photos that are taken by fixed cameras are rejected – this is fantastic news! They now freely admit that these devices are not perfect and a 20% rejection rate is very high. So, one obviously has to ask, if that many photos are rejected, how can we possibly be expected to believe that 20% of the other functions shouldn’t also be rejected – ie. the calibration, the alleged speeds shown, multiple cars within the detection zone of the device causing errors as well as other possibilities of interference – which, after all, as the manufacturers manuals themselves state is, “too numerous to mention!” 

The reality is that these devices are not accurate and the general motoring population is now becoming aware of that. Once we, as a nation, make the fundamental shift from believing that speed cameras generally “get it right and only sometimes make mistakes” to understanding the true reality of the situation, which is that speed cameras are fundamentally flawed and only occasionally “get it right”, then we should increasingly see more and more people challenging their fines.

So, all in all, this is great news.

What is also great news is that one of our Members has contacted us this week and asked us to share some of the research he has done into the National Measurement Act, over and above what we cover in our e-book. He has put together a document that contains a fair bit of information, including explaining, in detail, where someone else has gone wrong attempting to use the “lack of compliance with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act” argument. We have uploaded a copy of that document to the very bottom of the “Speeding Fines” page of our Advanced Membership website - http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/speeding-fines.php

He has also provided us with a copy of the document that he sends to the police in QLD – who require people who challenge speeding fines to complete a Notice of Intention to Dispute form. That document also raises a lot of relevant arguments in respect of the National Measurement Act and will be of great value to people who want to include these arguments into their cases.

We thank Matt for all his work in this area and for providing us with a copy of his research - obviously, we can’t do everything ourselves so it is great when Members contact us and share their information with us and allow us to pass it onto other Members as well so that we can get this information out to the masses.

  - Our friends at the Know Your Rights group

As many of you know, we have been working very hard with one of our founding members who has gone onto start the Know your Rights group – http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/  - around the middle of last year.

We know that a number of our Members are interested in finding out more than just how to defeat unjust and unlawful fines and the Know Your Rights group cover a wide range of different topics from eliminating personal tax obligations through to challenging the banks and even expanding on the “Strawman” concept that we touch on very briefly in our e-book.

26 January 2015
Important Australia Day message for all Aussie motorists!

- Intro

We hope that you all enjoyed a safe and fun Australia Day with family and friends. The marking of yet another “Australia Day” has prompted us to think about what it really means to be “Australian”. We had a few conversations with some of our founding Members this weekend and we seem to have uncovered a strange and frustrating paradox.

On one hand, we have had heard stories from people overseas who are amazed by the incredible fighting spirit of Aussies – we have heard statements such as, “If ever another war broke out, we would certainly want to be with the Australian soldiers, not against them.” And “Aussie soldiers are some of the toughest we have ever come across.” This is, indeed, a testament to the men and women in our defence forces.

We also often hear sayings like “Aussie battlers” and “the guts and determination of the Aussie spirit.” The Australian Open tennis series is currently being played out and we hear similar statements from commentators about the general “toughness” and “fighting spirit” of Aussies.

However, we also hear conflicting stories from our friends and contacts overseas as well – statements like “How do Aussie allow their governments to push them around so much?” and “We have never travelled to a country with as many fines as Australia.”

One contact even reminded us, when we spoke to them about this issue, that they don’t have any mobile speed cameras in the US. Why? Because within a week or trialling them, a number of camera operators were shot and killed and no-one was prepared to operate them since so they had to cancel the whole mobile speed camera program!

Now, we obviously don’t condone this sort of action but it definitely highlights the difference between how we “fight back” – generally not at all or with very minimal effort – and how people in other countries fight back against injustice.

So, what we don’t understand is, how is it that Aussie are, more or less, known around the world as tough fighters, battlers and  having “guts and determination”, yet, when it comes to fighting fines, standing up for our rights and fighting back against injustice, we are a nation of apathetic fools!

We will band to together and help out complete strangers with a strong show of force, in the strangest of circumstances, but we won’t stand up for ourselves and we allow our governments to strip us of our rights, to steal our money on the false pretence of “road safety” and, to generally lie and deceive us in ways that directly affect the people that we love – this simply does not make sense to us!

Not only that but, we have been around for 8 years now, we have had literally thousands of motorists use our information to successfully challenge and defeat all manner of unjust and unlawful fines, yet there are still millions out there that don’t have our licence-saving e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – or, worse still, say “We wish we heard of you earlier, we just paid xxxx”

On top of that, you have guys like our friends at the Know Your Rights group - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/ - who have a weekly radio show that covers some incredible information and is completely free to access, yet, for some unknown reason, they only have a few hundred listeners each week. Or, they put on amazing, life-changing seminars - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/ - and they only get a few dozen people turning up.

It concerns and saddens us that there are talented, educated people out there who are busting their asses day in and day out to help the general Australian public reclaim their rights, empower and educate themselves and show people how to stand up against injustice, yet all the general population want to do is have a beer with their mates and blindly believe that “She’ll be right mate!”

She won’t be right mate! Things are not right already and they are getting worse! We are looked upon by the very people that we vote into power – who are supposed to serve us - as little money making machines. The police are being used as glorified debt collectors and the governments are finding more and more ways to steal our hard earned money every week.

This is no longer about people doing the “wrong” thing and being punished, it is about our governments entrapping us by creating artificially lowered speed limits, removing registration labels and generally creating new laws that cause us to do something contrary to them automatically and, to make it all but impossible to comply – unless we want to be completely and utterly controlled by them – and this is all done in the name of raising as much revenue as possible.

So, please, this Australia Day, give some thought to what it really means to be Australian. Are the politicians and governments that are running our country really acting in our best interests? If you don’t believe they are then you – along with everyone else in this fine country – needs to actually do something about it. It’s time to embody some of that “fighting Aussie spirit” and send a message to those in power that they work for us, they exist to do our bidding – not the other way around – and we will no longer sit back and be treated as apathetic fools whilst they continue to rape us of our hard earned money.

We urge you to read through some of the following sections to see what those who are fighting back are achieving and, conversely, what will continue to happen if more people fail, or choose not, to fight back...

- Some Aussies who are fighting back

Over the Christmas/New Year period, we were alerted to a group on Facebook called “Block Their Shot”. This was a group of pro-active, forward-thinking motorists that decided to stop sitting back and bitching and moaning about the fact that speed cameras were blatant revenue raising devices and, instead, actually go out and do something about them. Members of the group went and placed their cars in the way of speed cameras to stop them from taking photos of other motorists’ vehicles and we saw this as a great way to “hit them where it hurts” and stop the money rolling into the government coffers.

You can find out more about this campaign via their official Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/www.blockthiershot.come - and we think it is sensational that a pro-active group like this has almost 50,000 “likes” – well done guys!

Not surprisingly, the media and the police didn’t quite see it that way and their response was to arrest the man behind the campaign and fill the media with more of their usual BS propaganda - http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/cq-man-arrested-over-block-their-shot-speed-camera-stunt-20150108-12k6uz.html

Now, you almost think they’re onto something when the Assistant Commissioner admits that, “High visibility policing is an effective deterrent for speedsters. We know that when people spot us on the side of the road – their natural reaction is to slow down.” – which is, of course, 100% true. However, he then loses all credibility when he spouts the following, “Obstructing the view of a speed camera is stupid, selfish and achieves nothing except allowing a speeding driver to get away with putting other lives at risk.”

Can someone please explain to us how this statement can possibly be true – remember, these cars are parked in front of the camera cars and they are pretending that their cars have broken down. Most motorists that we know would automatically slow down as they pass a broken down car – if for no other reason than to “check it out” – which, to our way of thinking, has exactly the same effect as if an actual police car was parked there – motorists slow down – period. Their issue, of course, is that they are no longer making any money from the process!

We also came across this article - http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw/block-their-shot-social-media-campaign-blocking-mobile-speed-cameras-from-clocking-drivers/story-fnpn118l-1227173575482?nk=4fd6d89fa9b3b71ac1caec5976807198 – which contains even more rubbish. Do people actually read this crap and believe it???

Their suggestion that this campaign will “lead to death and injury because it will encourage drivers to deliberately break speed limits” is clearly, completely unfounded as there has not been a single report of any accident at any of those sites and you can bet your bottom dollar that if there was even a "hint" of an accident, it would have been plastered all over the news!

Please keep in mind that this group started in April 2014 – that’s nine months ago – and there’s not a single report of any accidents at those sites and the group seems to be going from strength to strength.

The reality is that, as we explain in our e-book, the speed camera operator’s manual – which you can download, along with the manufacturers training manual for almost every speed detection device currently being used in Australia, from our Advanced Membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ - clearly states that there are “too many possibilities for error to mention” and even the example that they give at the end of the manual itself is wrong!

Speed cameras exist purely and simply to raise revenue – there are just no two ways about it!

And, speaking of cameras and taking photos, another interesting and related article that came across our desk recently is this one, regarding dashcams now being used in court as evidence more and more against these insidious devices - http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/01/07/17/58/dashcam-sales-on-the-rise-with-its-footage-increasingly-being-used-as-evidence-in-court

Now, we don’t sell any dashcams, we don’t get anything out of telling you this stuff but, given how fundamentally flawed all speed detection devices are, you may want to go and grab yourself one as extra insurance, over and above our licence-saving e-book!

- More cameras and more propaganda in WA

So the section above, is the good news – people are fighting back and taking action against these blatant revenue raising devices, which is great to hear. Unfortunately, not everyone is getting the message yet and, in WA, they are installing new cameras to extract more money from motorists over there.

This article - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa/a/25903732/wa-govt-makes-plans-to-reduce-road-toll/ - details the fact that four new speed cameras are being installed in Perth. What’s even more interesting is that they say that after those cameras have been installed, they will then analyse some data and do some reviews.

Hang on a minute – if you go to the WA Road Toll Statistics website - http://www.police.wa.gov.au/ABOUTUS/Statistics/FatalCrashStatistics/tabid/1073/Default.aspx - you will see that there have already been considerably more fatalities and serious injuries in 2015 than there was at the same time in 2014 and the road toll increased between 2013 and 2014 – after they installed more speed cameras. As we have said before, the definition of “insanity” is doing the same thing again and again but expecting a different result. Wouldn’t you think that they would do the studies and the research first, to find out if speed cameras were actually going to help reduce the road toll? No, of course not because they know they will make absolutely no difference – their own figures show that – but they are desperate for more revenue!

The Road Safety Minister admits that, “Single vehicle crashes on country roads remains a significant factor in the road toll” but then, with absolutely no basis in reality, goes onto suggest that “this new method targets specific crash clusters which is aimed at having a greater impact on reducing fatal and serious crashes." Here’s some data for you Ms Harvey, single vehicle accidents happen on country roads because the speed limit has been so arbitrarily and artificially reduced that people fall asleep at the wheel and drive off the side of the road! Want proof? Look at the Northern Territory! There were very few open road crashes initially with open speed limits, the government reduced the speed limit and fatalities increased, they opened up the speed limits again an fatalities decreased – it really doesn’t get any clearer than that!

And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, have a look at what they are now trying to introduce - https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/wa/a/25898508/wa-trials-program-to-reduce-road-deaths/ Talk about skewing and spinning statistics to make a point – how many people out there reading this have had had more than two speeding fines yet have never had an “at fault” accident?

It just blows our minds that the apathetic motorists of this country allow them to print this crap and don’t demand an immediate retraction!

- The truth about the road toll

If you want to understand the truth about the road toll, once and for all, you need to understand these simple facts. There exist more speed cameras – both fixed and mobile – across the country than ever before yet, the road toll in most States has increased – period.

In those few States that the road toll has actually decreased, it has absolutely nothing to do with speed cameras, it has to do with much more efficient emergency response systems to help affected motorists get to hospitals quicker. You can read the full details here -   http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/lowest-road-toll-ever-is-thanks-to-war-zone-medical-tactics/story-fnn8dlfs-1227173657889

So, when the governments and police try and spin their propaganda and say that the road toll has decreased due to the effectiveness of speed cameras, you know exactly what to tell them. And, in those States where fatalities have continued to increase, despite these more efficient emergency response systems being in place, you can truly see that speed cameras most assuredly do not “save lives” – doctors do!

- Some more advanced information

We know that many of our more advanced Members and Subscribers, and those who have been following and supporting us for many years now, have come to appreciate some of the more advanced information and strategies that we put out from time to time.

One of the challenges that we face every day is how much information to include in these e-mail updates and how much to leave out. On one hand, we still have people, right at the very bottom level of understanding who believe that “if you don’t speed then you won’t get fined” – the reality, of course, is that if that were the case then we simply wouldn’t exist. Others, however, are far more advanced in their understanding and many have had their eyes opened up way beyond what we even cover in our e-book.

So, for those of you who are open to the next level and are prepared to take on board some new information, we have just uploaded two powerful new videos to our Advanced Membership website that will explain, in very clear and simple terms, why the majority of Aussie motorists are not lawfully required to have a Driver’s Licence.

You can access those two videos by clicking the “Downloads” tab on our Advanced Membership website - http://www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ - and scrolling to the very bottom section entitled “Why most Aussie motorists do not need a Driver’s Licence.

 - Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We have, once again, received new testimonials from Members that have successfully used our information defeat unjust and unlawful traffic fines.

We have chosen to only include one this week because the response that this Member got when she successfully challenged an unjust parking fine is very important.

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to say thanks again for all your help and support with my latest fine.

As you may recall, I parked in an area where the signage wasn’t clear and received a fine. I wrote to the council and they sent me back what was clearly a “standard response” and it was obvious that they hadn’t even read my letter to them as they didn’t respond to any of the points I raised.

I wrote back to them about a month later and then I received a withdrawal notice because they said that there was an “oversight” and my “appeal wasn’t assessed in time”. They can explain it away however they like, as long as they cancelled the fine, which they did.

Thanks again,

 

Amanda – Vic.

P.S. I have included a copy of their actual reply because there was a line in their about Council’s “business rules” that I thought you might find interesting.

 

And here is the very interesting reply that she received (important section highlighted for reference):

 

Dear Ms xxxxx,

Withdrawal Notice

Infringements (Reporting and Prescribed Details and Forms) Regulations 2006

Hobson’s Bay City Council records indicate that correspondence appealing the infringement notice was received on 1/10/14.

Due to an administrative oversight your appeal was not assessed or responded to within the time frame prescribed in Council’s business rules.

Therefore in accordance with guidelines the infringement notice has been withdrawn on this occasion. The matter is now considered final and no further action is required on your behalf.

The amount of any infringement penalty and any prescribed costs that have been paid will be refunded in due course, unless the person has an ongoing payment plan in which case Part 3 of the Infringements Act 2006 applies.

Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact our office or attend in person at the details provided. Our hours of business are 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Yours sincerely,


Andrew Bellingham

Co-Ordinator Parking and Local Laws


Now, apart from their reply letter containing almost no punctuation what-so-ever, the reference to “Council’s business rules” should grab our readers attention immediately. This categorically proves that local councils are simply businesses and they have absolutely no lawful authority to issue fines.

Please also keep in mind 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.

4 January 2015
The latest revenue raising insanity!

- Intro

We trust you all enjoyed your New Year’s celebrations and we hope that 2015 is you best year ever. In order to play our role in making it your best year yet, we want to ensure that as many motorists as possible have access to the incredible, licence-saving information that is contained in our e-book, so we would like to remind everyone that we have extended our 25% off discount promotion until midnight this coming Monday, the 5th of January.

This will give every motorist in Australia – especially those who have been away on holiday and unable to take advantage of our discount til now - an opportunity to get access to our e-book at a fantastic, discounted price and, ensure that they are truly informed and educated about their rights in regards to traffic fines this year.

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 holiday to find the inevitable unjust and unlawful traffic fine waiting for them.

So, 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.

We note that all Hard Copy orders – which are the ones that we always  recommend, over and above any of our digital options – will now be sent out via Express Post, so there will now be a minimal delay in getting hold of the best, most portable and flexible versions of our extremely effective information.

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.

The new revenue raising strategies that have been employed recently are truly outrageous – as we have reported on in recent e-mail updates – but one of the stories below is sure to make you shake your head in utter disbelief at how completely blatant the revenue raising has now become.

- The most insane revenue raising we’ve heard of to date

As you can imagine, we have heard all kinds of crazy stories over the past 8 years or so that we have been operating but this one has to take the cake - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/east/possible-144-fine-for-leaving-car-unlocked-at-westfield-knox/story-fngnvlxu-1227161763121   

How on earth do the police justify fining people $144 for leaving their cars unlocked???

Surely, if someone wants to leave their own, private conveyance, unlocked then that should be their choice!

Yes, we understand that “thieves regularly target unlocked cars” and that may, in turn, cause the police extra work but, hang on, isn’t that what they’re actually there for! Can anyone please tell us another profession that is allowed to fine people for things that would increase their workload and get away with it!

Not only that, but we spoke to a few of our founding members here at ASF and almost everyone of them had, at one time or another, had their cars broken into and had stuff stolen – while they were locked, mind you – and not a single one of them ever had the police recover their property. So, maybe in addition to generating a ton of extra revenue for the government, these fines are also designed to cover up the inabilities of the police to actually do their real jobs as well.

Seriously, where do they get off making statements like this, “Fining is a deterrence for all crimes and that’s why we fine for road safety, and people need to be aware that they leave themselves open to that.”!!!

First and foremost, the “crime” that is being committed is by the morally deprived individual who is opening up someone else’s car – whether it is locked or not – and taking property that clearly doesn’t belong to them. In our view, any purported statute, Act or law that suggests that someone leaving their own vehicle unlocked is a “criminal” is a worthless piece of paper.

And, how stupid do they think we are? Trying to link “road safety” to criminals breaking into cars as justification for fining the owners of those cars has to be the most blatant, misleading propaganda ever!!!

Needless to say that if you, or anyone you know, has received one of these truly absurd fines, you should immediately challenge it!

- It’s so bad now that people don’t want to become police officers

Given the absolute insanity of the fines that the police are now being forced to issue – as is detailed in the section above – as well as the outrageous ways they are being forced to issue these fines – as was detailed in our last e-mail update – http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/2014-%252d-Current-Updates.html – is it any wonder that people no longer want to become police officers.

Well, as this story details - http://filmingcops.com/departments-now-having-hard-time-finding-people-who-want-to-be-police-officers-blaming-social-media/ - that is exactly what is happening – and with good reason.

People are waking up to the fact that the police are now basically just glorified “tax collectors” for the government, they no longer play any real role in “road safety” and, they are being given far too much power and they are wielding that power very inappropriately and people have had enough.

Police are not respected members of the community anymore and no-one wants to join them. As this story correctly points out, “Their own abusive actions are causing the problem.” Now, don’t get us wrong, there are still some “good cops” out there but they are very few and far between and they certainly aren’t working for the highway patrol, the traffic camera offices or any related divisions – they are out their stopping and solving real crimes!

This story suggests that “social media” is to blame yet, as these two lines point out brilliantly, that is simply not the case The reality is that police are individuals, and individuals are responsible for their actions. Individuals who willingly agree to coerce, extort, and initiate violence upon peaceful people in order to maintain a monopolistic rule of corrupt politicians are naturally going to be distrusted.”

Social media is being used to “keep cops honest” and we think that’s great. The more people that use it for that purpose, the better. And, if we all continue to fight back against the unjust and unlawful fines that the police are issuing then the message might finally get through to them to stop!

Now, we just want to clarify here that, when we say “fight back against unjust and unlawful fines”, we mean by challenging them using our 3 step process, writing letters of your own or taking fines to court – we do not mean going to these extremes - http://countercurrentnews.com/2014/12/tickets-and-citations-have-dropped-94/

Having said that though, we must, once again, ask the question – what causes an otherwise law abiding citizen to take such drastic measures and go to such extremes? Clearly, we do not condone this kind of action in any way but, the fact remains that the system must be very broken for people to go to these lengths as a result.

And, there’s no escaping the fact that the message has gotten through to them, as they are no longer issuing these petty fines anymore. Remember, there are no mobile speed cameras in the US because once the first few were installed, the speed camera operators were shot and killed. Do you think anyone would want to man a speed camera here in Australia if that happened? No, of course not! Now, it shouldn’t have to get to that point but the governments and their agencies had better start listening to the Will of We, The People before things get out of hand.

On one hand, Aussie are a very apathetic bunch of people. They think, “she’ll be right mate” and, often it is. But, of you push them too far they will collectively “snap” and they will come together and fight back and fight back hard. So, this e-mail is a message as much to the governments of this country as it is to our Members and Subscribers – please feel free to share it around.

And, whilst you’re sharing things around, we know we’ve referred to this video before but the message is so powerful and so relevant to this section that we feel we must include it again, especially for those who haven’t seen it yet.  Please take just 7 minutes of your time to watch this important video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg – and pass it onto any police officers or sheriff’s officers that you may know and feel free to e-mail it around, post it on Facebook etc.

Remember, the police are there to protect us, they are not there to blindly enforce the government’s policies that we neither asked for nor want. The Governments were elected by us to do our bidding, not their own! It’s time we reminded them of that fact again.
