johnr: Has anyone else recently got a ticket for 55km in 50km zone? I now know 3 people including my mum who has got one in the last 2 - 3 weeks

It's only a $30 fine but the police seem to be dishing them out more

 

 

 

IMO 1 kmph over the speed limit should incur a fine.

 

 

 

A limit is a limit. Perhaps people should aim for 5km under the limit - that way if they go over 5km, they will still be within the actual limit :)

 

 

 


Yeah and if you show up to work 1 min late regardless of excuse the boss should dock your salary, and if you are one minute late to pick up your child you should pay extra time?

 

 

 

According to Googles definition of the word "limit" below, yes.....

 

 

 

limit

 

 

noun

 

a point or level beyond which something does not or may not extend or pass.

johnr: @Dunnersfella All of the tickets have been issued on the North Shore, Auckland

and Yes I agree with you, Don't speed then no ticket but this seems OTT

 

 

 

Got one in January, North Shore East Coast road. Also at 55km. Weird thing is I was coming out of John Downs drive. I dont hoon it and its would be hard to get it to 55 in that short distance. I have requested a photo as I do not beleive I was doing 55.

I have just asked on one of the local facebook pages and it seems a lot of people were given tickets for eaxctly 55km/h on the speed camera on East Coast road. These sounds really fishy. I honestly believe I was not speeding and have not had a ticket in 15 years. Its only $30 but to me that camera is a revenue collector.

Sounds a bit like when my wife got a speeding ticket in her old car. Her speedo also read on the high side (the actual speed was slower than the displayed speed). Even though her speedo showed she was travelling above the limit she was never doing anywhere the speed that was displayed on the police car display.  After the fact we found out a lot of other people had got tickets on this stretch of road under dubious circumstances. Apparently one cop was in the practice not resetting the display then using that number to ping other motorists.  Revenue collecting.
