Hi out there in Beautiful NZ.
I have just come back to the UK from a magic 7 week holiday Motorcycle touring in New Zealand.
On February 11 I got a speeding ticket. which I have just received in the UK.
When checking the Ticket I found that the drivers License number was in correct to the UK License I presented to the Police Officer when I was apprehended. I asked a NZ lawyer and he said I should pay the ticket as the Police can change details if they are incorrect . However when I iast lived in NZ in the 1980's I got off a speeding Ticket as the ticket had the incorrect make of car on it. When I wrote to the Transport Authority at that time claiming that The make of car did not match the registration number the ticket was cancelled.
I have until the 25/04/19 to pay the current speeding ticket which is $170 for 125 kmh. I did explain to the police officer at the time that I was wearing a legal open face helmet and it was better for my safety to pass cars in front of me so I didn't get sprayed with shingle and road debris by the vehicles in front of me.
Any first hand advise on how to have this speeding ticket quashed would be greatly appreciated
