2018 - Current News/Updates

10 February 2018
The latest important media articles and heaps of new testimonials and absolute proof of success with our system!

- Intro

Can you believe it’s February already??? Wasn’t it Christmas like just a few weeks ago?

We have to admit that, for the first time in about a decade, we actually took some time off over January so it’s been a couple of months since we last wrote to you and, it’s a brand new year and a whole lot has already happened and there’s lots of exciting things ‘in the pipeline’ as well.

The revenue raising goons have been out in force for most of last month and we have been inundated with e-mails from frustrated motorists who came home from their holidays, only to receive ridiculous, unjust and unlawful fines for very minor traffic ‘infringements’.

Thankfully though, we have also received a heap of new testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information to beat their fines as well and you can read all about those success stories in the Latest Testimonials and Feedback section towards the end of this e-mail update. We have also included numerous copies of letters they have received from various agencies confirming that their fines have bene withdrawn so you know 100% that our information and strategies work, exactly as we say they do!

We have a real mixed bag of information this month but the one ‘theme’ that runs through all the following articles is how ‘fired up’ you will get after reading them. So, as always, make yourself comfortable and read on to learn the latest exciting info…..

- Even the police want to scrap speed cameras!

Our first article is a very telling one from QLD, where the police union has come out publically and stated that unmarked cameras do absolutely nothing for road safety and exist purely to raise revenue. You can read the full article here - https://www.sbs.com.au/news/police-union-calls-to-remove-sneaky-unmarked-speed-cameras

Now, this is obviously not ground breaking news for anyone reading this e-mail update but, the fact that it is now the police themselves saying this, is very powerful. The fact that the mainstream media actually quoted them as saying , “the "sneaky" devices did not reduce the state's road toll or stop people from speeding.” is truly surprising and very welcome.

They go on to categorically state what we have been telling our Members for over a decade now, "Getting a ticket in the mail up to a month after speeding when you can barely remember even where you were back then, has no effect and is quite rightly cynically viewed as revenue raising,"

The closing line of that article is one of the most sensible pieces of reporting we have read in a long time – "There's no use acting after the event, it's far better to prevent people from speeding in the first place," - well done SBS and the QPU!

Sadly, the QLD government is completely ignoring the fact that motorists have ‘had enough’ of these blatant revenue raising devices and, rather than take on board what the QPU have said, they are doing exactly the opposite and installing even more cameras! QLD has now joined the majority of other States by introducing completely ineffective – as far as reducing the road toll goes – point-to-point speed cameras.

This article - https://cairnsnews.org/2018/01/23/locations-of-new-p-2-p-speed-cameras-in-qld/ - details the locations of those new cameras so please be sure to spread these around far and wide because, no doubt, the QLD government will not be publicising them!

And, it appears the WA government is ignoring all of this as well, as they proudly roll out new rear-facing speed cameras, specifically to target motorcycle riders - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-12-29/new-rear-facing-speed-cameras-in-wa-target-motorcycles/9292654

The problem is, of course, that, just like every other camera, sending out a fine in the mail 3 or 4 week after the event is going to do absolutely nothing to reduce the road toll. Isn’t it strange that the government continues to spout rubbish like “Every K over is a killer” and “Speed Kills” yet they fully expect you to stay alive for at least a few weeks – no matter how much you were exceeding the limit by – in order to pay the fine once it eventually arrives!

If only these revenue raising snakes would stop speaking with forked tongues and admit that, when they crap on about “creating a level playing field”, what they really mean is they can extract as much money from motorcyclists now as they do from other motor vehicle owners.

- How other countries deal with this blatant revenue raising

As we have stated in a number of e-mail updates before, it is incredibly paradoxical that members of the Australian Defence Force are some of the toughest, hardest fighting people in the world, yet the general Australian motoring public are some of the laziest and most apathetic!

Most motorists just sit on their collective bacskides bleating “it’s too hard to fight back” or, worse still, “if you got a fine then you must have done something wrong”, all the while, more and more cameras are introduced and more fines are issued than ever before yet, on the whole, the road toll continues to rise.

Conversely, you have motorists in other countries who band together and take extraordinary action when even the most minor of their rights to travel are infringed upon or impeded. Take this story - https://thenewspaper.com/news/63/6386.asp - for example, from France, where motorists went crazy simply because the government decided to reduce the speed limits on certain stretches of road by 10 km/h. Our governments do that to us on a weekly basis here in Australia and yet no-one bats an eyelid – in fact, they just hand over more of their hard earned money when the inevitable increase in the number of fines occurs as a direct result of that deceptive speed reduction.

Seriously, how do they continually justify the fact that a road that was completely safe to drive on a month ago at 70km/h (for example) is now completely unsafe - according to them – to drive on at even 1km/h over 60! We would be very surprised if there was a single person reading this e-mail that hadn’t experienced some kind of an artificially reduced speed limit, in their area, at some point over the past 6 to 12 months. Why do our governments keep reducing speed limits, never raising them? Why do we continue to allow them to get away with this, when motorists in other countries are up in arms???

Then, there’s this guy, from Germany, who took a tractor out and mowed down 6 speed cameras - https://www.wheelsmag.com.au/news/1712/rogue-tractor-driver-destroys-six-speed-cameras The article also refers to other instances in the UK and Slovakia, where motorists have taken action against these cameras to voice their disapproval of them.

We find it outrageous that, in the closing line of the article, the Department of ‘Just is’ can claim that speed cameras fall under the umbrella of “critical infrastructure” – the only thing they are ‘critical’ to is on-going revenue raising for the government!

Now, we want to make it clear that we do not condone this sort of action in any way and we are certainly not suggesting that people go out and vandalise speed cameras but there has to be some ‘middle ground’ between vandalizing cameras and blindly handing over your hard earned money every time you receive a traffic fine.

And, that’s where our e-book comes in. “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need To Know” - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/About-the-e%252dbook.html – is an extremely comprehensive (87 pages), step-by-step manual that shows you precisely how to challenge these ridiculous, revenue raising fines using proven legal principles and, by arming yourself with words rather than weapons.

If you want to fight back against this madness in a formal, legal way, then be sure to grab a copy of our e-book right away - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and remember, the best time to be armed with our information is before you get a fine!

- More proof that fines are invalid and don’t work

Not only are speed and red light cameras completely ineffective at reducing the road toll and, not only do they exist purely to raise revenue but, on top of that, they are being used unlawfully as well – as we detail in our e-book.

We have reported a number of times on the speed and red light camera scandal that gripped many States in the US and, this year, yet another city has fallen foul of these cameras and had the courts rule them as un-Constitutional - https://www.activistpost.com/2018/02/court-finds-red-light-camera-fines-unconstitutional-forces-city-refund-tickets.html

This time, it is New Miami in Ohio, where the story is similar to other cities, as the courts have ruled that, “the $3 million in fines stolen from drivers with no due process was all obtained illegally and they must now pay it back.”

Now, although this is obviously a US ruling, the exact same principles apply here too – we also have tickets sent to us in the mail, by a private corporation who do not follow “due process” – ie. They are in breach of Section 8, Sub-section 12 of our Imperial Acts Application Act. If you don’t know what that is or why it is vitally important, it is all explained in our licence-saving e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/About-the-e%252dbook.html

The closing line of that article really says it all and the same applies here in Australia 100% - “As more people refuse to comply, these companies, who rely on corrupt and greedy politicians willing to sell out their citizens for a buck, will begin to fail. And, when they lose — freedom wins.” We all need to fight back against every unjust and unlawful fine we receive!

Then, there’s this article and accompanying video - https://jalopnik.com/this-is-the-best-takedown-of-the-speed-kills-myth-you-1302382244 - which completely destroys the ridiculous and completely baseless “Speed kills” myth.

And, as if all of that wasn’t enough, then there’s this article and accompanying research - https://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/car-technology/a14470078/how-lowering-the-speed-limit-can-actually-hurt-pedestrians/?src=nl&mag=pop&list=nl_pnl_news&date=122017 – that explains that lowering the speed limit can actually increase fatalities!

It goes into great detail explaining why that is the case and, given that we mentioned in our earlier section that our governments are constantly reducing speed limits in most States, we too need to be asking when they are going to be increased so our roads can become safer again.

- Beyond ridiculous

We came across a couple more articles that really didn’t fit into any other specific category but we felt they needed to be included because of just how purely ridiculous they were.

The first is an article that details the push for a national drivers licence scheme - http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/labor-backs-australian-national-drivers-licence-scheme-20171229-h0bfvl.html - and the reasons they give are truly mind boggling.

How on earth does Anthony Albanese justify his completely absurd claim that a disqualified driver applying for a licence in another State would be “risking the safety of other motorists”. Motorists are unjustly and unfairly “disqualified” from their God-given right to travel freely around the planet for all manner of ridiculous reasons – often times, for simply refusing to pay unjust and unlawful fines – so how on earth does that make them a danger to other motorists???

He goes on to reference “a crisis” but completely fails to explain or justify what on earth that supposed crisis is. Does he really just mean the difficulty in continuing to raise revenue from motorists who have woken up to their rights and are exploiting loopholes that the government created for their own people to use. Hmmm….something to think about.

Then, he goes completely ‘off the reservation’ and talks about the ‘holiday road toll’ but, again, what on earth does that have to do with a national drivers licence scheme and how, exactly, does he believe implementing one would, in any way reduce the holiday road toll???

Is it just us or has this guy completely lost his marbles!

Then, there’s this article - http://meanwhileinaustralia.com/2017/12/12/its-just-wrong-man-left-furious-after-being-slapped-with-a-hefty-fine-for-parking-in-his-own-driveway/ - which details a number of motorists who were fined for …. wait for it …. parking in their own driveways!!!

What the???

Yes, you read that correctly, certain councils – which operate under ABN (Australian Business Numbers) as corporations (they all have a CEO) and, therefore, have no lawful right to issue fines – are now issuing fines to people for parking in their own driveways. Seriously, how utterly desperate for money do you need to be to resort to tactics such as these?

- There is some good news though

Thankfully, it’s not all bad news this month, in fact, there’s some very positive news to report and we’re happy to be able to finish this month’s e-mail off on a high note.

The first, and most powerful bit of good news is that the cracks are not only ‘appearing’ but they are definitely ‘widening’ in ‘the system’. As this article details - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/unsustainable-pressure-justice-system-sagging-under-toll-road-fine-burden-20171226-h0a6ur.html - there are now so many people challenging ridiculous, unjust and unlawful toll fines – hopefully as a result of our recent e-mail updates proving they are unlawful – that the so-called ‘justice system’ is suffering under a “huge burden”.

Those words are like music to our ears, and hopefully, yours too.

There were just over 1.4 million toll fines issued on Citylink and Eastlink over the 2016/2017 period and more than half of those were challenged and ended up in court! Again, you have no idea how incredibly happy we are to read those figures!!!

That means that more than 50% of motorists are now taking action and saying “No! We will not accept these unlawful fines any longer, we are going to fight back”. And, the proof is in the pudding – the justice system is suffering significant hardship and “the courts are overwhelmed with tolling matters”.

The article geos further to state that, "The number of charges for driving on private toll roads is placing unsustainable pressure on magistrates courts already at breaking point." We love it! Go Victorian motorists!!!

A number of our Members have contacted us over the past few months and confirmed that they have been to court over toll fines and, even those who were challenging their toll fines without our information, were having all the extra fees and charges removed and they only had to pay the actual usage charges. And, one member that we spoke to just this week said that Citylink are now phoning motorists before a toll charge becomes an actual fine and will remove all the extra charges if you ask them to because, once a fine is issued, the toll company doesn’t get paid!

So, you can easily use Citylink or Eastlink, without paying, drag it on for a few months or possibly even years and then still just pay the original amount. Imagine what would happen to these unlawful toll companies if every motorist did that!! Remember, all our roads are created in ‘fee simple’, We, The People own them and no-one has a right to charge us to use them pursuant to section 92 of the Commonwealth Constitution. Again, if you don’t understand this, it is all explained in our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/About-the-e%252dbook.html

But wait, there’s more!

There’s also this article - http://www.news.com.au/national/courts-law/council-cock-up-undisclosed-number-of-parking-fines-issued-in-error/news-story/a2486e70169ce17912c1b09e8367e64f - from NSW which admits that more than $100 million worth of parking fines were issued in error!

So, for all those reading this who have friends/relatives/co-workers etc. that tell them they are stupid for challenging their fines because “the system is always right” and “if you got a fine, you must have done something wrong”, you can show them this article – in addition to the hundreds of similar ones we have reported on over the years.

Now, what makes this article interesting is how they try and fudge their way through the figures. They admit that 1.3 million fines were issued and that 34,234 were successfully appealed but they try and twist things around by stating that only 1% of fines are actually withdrawn, without acknowledging that 27% - yes, that’s twenty seven percent - of fines that are challenged are challenged successfully – no doubt, by our Members who are armed with our tried, tested and proven legal arguments!

What’s even worse is that they openly admit that their “checks and balances” only minimise errors – they certainly don’t eliminate them and they certainly don’t account for all the fines that are issued unlawfully by corporations operating under an ABN, who have no lawful authority to issue fines in the first place.

They then try and justify all of that blatant revenue raising by saying that they do it to “help manage parking turnover” – of course, they don’t say whether it actually achieves that goal in any way, shape or form at all though.

And, finally, there’s this article - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-01-03/victorian-magistrate-charged-over-road-crash/9301550 - which highlights two very important points. Firstly, not all “justice department” employees are above the law – we hope the courts issue him with the maximum penalty because, someone in charge of ‘enforcing the law’ should be held to the highest possible standard and be punished the most if he/she breaches that standard – after all, it would be a bit of a double standard if he just ‘got off’.

But, most importantly, the quote by the Chief Magistrate that, "The magistrate is entitled, as is every other member of the community, to the presumption of innocence," is one that every motorist should throw back at any agency that issues them with a fine and expects them to just “pay up”. It should also be used in every case where an agency attempts to tell you that, if you don’t nominate another driver, then you are “deemed” to be the person responsible, even if you can prove that you weren’t. Very powerful words!

- Know Your Rights group FREE seminars and Bank Secrets Revealed info

As many of you would now be aware, we are working very closely with the Know Your Rights group, trying to get our information out to the masses.

People often ask us for advice on other topics not related to traffic fines – such as the many questions we get about rates, failing to vote fines and how to handle the banks. We really want to keep our focus on traffic fines and do everything we can to bring about changes in this field, even though we are obviously aware of “the bigger picture” and we have a lot information outside this area. Instead, we believe that the best place to go to for other information – especially on topics such as tax being illegal, the banking fraud, the importance of the Commonwealth Constitution, the recent mandatory vaccination laws, the Strawman concept, and much more – is definitely the Know Your Rights group - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/

Their website is very comprehensive and has just recently been completely revamped. They have added a number of videos and the website provides a ton of free information and, on top of that, they run really informative on-line radio shows every Tuesday night - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/ - that are completely free to listen to.

If you enjoy their free information, we would encourage you to have a look at some of the other great products and services that they offer - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/products/ - and we definitely recommend their new e-book – “The essential step-by-step manual for understanding and exercising your rights” – as it covers a wealth of information on a wide range of topics that is all explained very simply and clearly. Be sure to read over their e-book page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/our-e-book/ - and grab a copy.

We urge you to support the group in any way you can and, be sure to take advantage of all of their incredible information they have available to help you learn about your rights, including their brand new Seminar DVDs, that contain a complete copy of one of their full, live introductory seminars - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/product/live-seminar-dvds/

They are also working closely with a new group called Bank Secrets Revealed, who also have a very informative website on how to successfully challenge the banks regarding any outstanding debts. They have a fantastic e-book – “The truth about banks and how to beat them!” – and, we urge anyone who has a credit card, personal loan or home loan to read through that e-book so that you fully understand the incredible fraud that the banks commit every day. You can visit their website – www.banksecretsrevealed.com.au – to find out more.

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

As always, we have received a number of new testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information to challenge their own fines so be sure to read through the following success stories. And, given that we haven’t done an official e-mail update for a couple of months, there are a few more than usual.

What also makes these testimonials extra special is that this month, people not only sent us their personalized e-mails explaining their success with our system but also sent us copies of the letters they received from various agencies confirming that their fines had been withdrawn! We have included copies of those letters, minus any personal information and you will find them accompanying a number of the testimonials below. We trust this will be more than sufficient to silence the very small minority of people that have dared to suggest that we ‘make up’ any of our testimonials.

The first is from a Member who, like the many people we mentioned in an earlier section of this update, has successfully used our information to challenge Citylink over their unlawful tolling system.

Hello All,

Just wanted to thank you profusely for your assistance. My long running battle with Citylink is finally over thanks to buying your book and using your advice. Years of bullying has come to an end. Can`t thank you or recommend you enough.

Kindest Regards

David – Vic.

The second is from a Member who sent our 3 step process letters to a police officer who issued him with a parking ticket and successfully had the fine withdrawn.

Well done guys and thanks for all the help and advice.

Fine has been withdrawn.

Thanks again for all your help.

Cheers,

Damian – QLD

You can read a copy of the letter from SPER confirming this fact, via this link - http://aussiespeedingfines.com/attachments/SPER_letter.pdf

Then there was one from a Member who successfully used our letters to drag a speeding fine out for more than 12 months and, as a result, they also withdrew the fine.

To all the people at ASF,

Thank you, the fine has bene withdrawn. Without you blokes and all your advice and assistance, I would not have thought this to be possible.

It does work and very well. Feel free to use this in testimonials, as I do appreciate your work very much.

Kel - QLD

You can view a copy of the QLD Police letter confirming the fine has been withdrawn, via this link - http://aussiespeedingfines.com/attachments/QLD_Police_letter.pdf

Then, there’s this e-mail from yet another QLD Member who has had a fine withdrawn, this time, by the Brisbane City Council for supposedly ‘littering’.

Hi Guys,

Thanks again for your hard work in finding what's happening. You have inspired me to start campaigning against our laws and legal system. I'm enjoying going to court now and clogging up the corrupt legal system. Next court date is 22nd Jan. It's very difficult to awaken the Australian Public but slowly and surely it will happen. I must admit I was once asleep, I now see. Once you see you can't unsee. 

My entire family thinks I'm crazy and think it's a "fluke" that I beat the council in a silly fine. The schooling indoctrination camps are working well. Unfortunately, ignorance is bliss. Sometimes I wish I could be ignorant again. 

I'll send through my letter from the council confirming that the fine has been withdrawn. 

Simon - QLD

You can read the full letter from the council via this link - http://aussiespeedingfines.com/attachments/Brisbane_Council_letter.pdf

And, finally, there’s the e-mail below from a member who, even though he did technically do what they were accusing him of, chose to take the fine to court and explain his situation to a Magistrate and, as a result, had the matter entirely dismissed. This is why it is so important to challenge every fine, rather than blindly ‘pay up’, even if you did, in fact, do what they claim.

Hi there,

I had an experience 2 years ago where I was pinged (correctly) for driving an unregistered vehicle. There were quite a few flaws with the way the RMS had handled it and I had all the clever strategies drawn from your book ready to go. But I sat in a few cases prior to mine and observed the magistrate.

The prosecutor was a killer and thought they had me dead to rights. I told the magistrate the absolute truth of the circumstances, and could contextualise my behaviour from cases just heard. His honour was pleased to hear such a refreshing account and dismissed the charges (after checking my record for any prior pattern). Not Sec 10, fully dismissed.

If you are curious why, it was because I had been called to pick up some drunk friends 10km away who realised they couldn't drive home so called me 11:30pm. I got about 4km and realised I had taken the just-run-out-of-rego car, but didn't go back for the other one as didn't want these girls getting the bright idea to drive home just because I didn't turn up quickly enough.

That the RMS sent the renewal papers to the wrong address, and other faults, and the consequences thereof, are things I never even mentioned... So nice to have the comfort of your book knowledge, but ultimately not needed for this one.

Kind regards,

Vince

Please remember that there are plenty more e-mails like that on our Testimonial’s pages - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - and many of you will note that our old page has now grown to seven full pages and continues to grow each month because we regularly receive stories of success, just like these, from our Members.

One thing that we are now asking our Members to do, if you have had any kind of success with our information, is to send us in a very short video testimonial, similar to the ones that the Know Your Rights group has near the bottom of their Home page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/

These don’t need to be professionally recorded, just a simple 1 or 2 minute statement into your phone video recorder is fine – just something that we can show people to let them know that other, everyday Aussie motorists, just like them, are using our information to successfully beat their fines.

If you could record those and e-mail them through to us at info@aussiespeedingfines.com that would be very much appreciated.
