Aussie Police Raise Revenue By Ticketing Drivers Going 1 KM/H Over Speed Limit

Chris | InformationLiberation

Australian police are planning to ticket people driving on 60 km/h zones for going 1 km/h over the speed limit, saying the "speed limit" should actually be a limit.

I wrote about how idiotic speed limit laws are the other day for this very reason, they're not actually limits, so it creates a situation where everyone becomes a law breaker and anyone can be ticketed for any reason based off cop's random whims. That said, this new enforcement regime is predicted will extort a minimum of 9 million AUS dollars from the general public over the next year, and Australians are rightly saying it's all about raising revenue.
QUEENSLAND's Police Minister has insisted the lowering of the tolerance margin in 60km/h speed zones is about road safety and not revenue raising.

Jack Dempsey defended the police initiative introduced on July 1 after figures obtained by The Courier-Mail showed a big increase in the number of speeding vehicles detected in the first week, compared with the same period last year.

Mr Dempsey said the 19.5 per cent increase in speeding offences was largely because more officers were "out there" enforcing the speed limit.

"I would be happy if we didn't have to issue one traffic offence," said Mr Dempsey.
While I do believe speed limits are idiotic because they're not actually "limits," I'm not only against speed limits because the laws turn everyone into a criminal, I'm also against them because they have no effect on safety, driving slower is not safer. In fact, it could be more dangerous as people have their eyes on their speedometer rather than the road in front of them. While "Mr Dempsey" says he'd be "happy" if they didn't have to issue one traffic offence, with the pursuant drop in revenue he would (rightfully) be out of a job.

174240 The National Socialists A("SS"-holes) did this in Los Angeles a while back. It was merely a construct: pigs vs. citizenry. The outcome wasn't to the pigs' advantage. I would have thought they'd have learned their lesson that go-round. The L.A. Police ticketed a "Rule Maker" - I thought it was hilarious; they can't even "get with the program" on the converse side.

"Keep on Keep'N on," a(SS) - holes! This is better than Mind-fuck-Media.

P.S. I love you all regardless :)

125237 Do they not understand that speedometers are not always 100% accurate? Or that their "radar" equipment may not be indicating the targeted vehicle?

I think they should all have the words "to intimidate and extort" written on the side of their cars. That would be a brilliant motto, and oh so accurate.

66135 When asked about the 10-15% inaccuracy in speedometers, the Police Minister of Queensland said that the drives will just need to drive at least 10 K/hr slower than the posted limit to make sure that they are not ticketed.

True story. Saw it live. What a bunch of BS... as usual from the police farce of Queensland.

@nonymous 125237, what you think doesn't matter, does it? It's odd how some people can get away with murder, yet, others, are forced to take the fall.......
You see, what government doesn't tell you about, REALLY, can kill you. Forgive my boldness, but I was subjected to [what has to be] the worst band on planet earth, just moments ago. Don't think i failed to piece the puzzle together: "PARAMORE" with "paramount"; someone forgot to both listen, and, look, at the creature who plays the lead for that band. I'm not sure of her name, so, I'll just refer to her as: "what's her snout?"
Oh, and 125237, fuck off.

81161 speed-limits 'have no effect on safety' ?
Chris, you will need to provide some documentation for that claim ..
Good luck finding it .

Sorry Chris, but your freedom stops exactly at the point where exercising it endangers the lives of those unfortunate people who are not you ..

174240 Peter, I wish u were a free agent. No one on this site makes me laugh anymore, other than you.

7513 Municipalities should legislate Pedestrian speed limits. I mean, people walking too fast could accidentally trample someone. Think of the children. They could ticket citizens for walking too fast.

@nonymous 7513, that's a stupid idea.

I'm found of Peter, because he's smarter than I am. He's much smarter than you are. I KNOW where you're coming from, but, Peter, is an exception(al) person - the reason he can out-think a fox.

In other words: "don't"
