7 speeding fines in 3 years Tas?
You inveterate scofflaw, you.

I'm not preaching the go slow doctrine, I often cruise above the 110, but if you want to go racing about the place Tas, at least get yourself a decent UHF 2-way so you can keep track of the wallopers. In town however, I never go over, no point attracting unwanted attention, plus my vehicle is rather distinctive.

I haven't been pinged in over 15yrs, probably jinxed myself now.

As a motorcycle instructor I was also trained up by AAMI to teach young drivers (under 25) about stopping distances, sliding, collision avoidance, car control, etc - there were 3 trainers per 4 students.
We were paid a pittance but believed we were making a difference.
AAMI covered our wages and the govt paid the $100 a weekend for the venue.
The course ran for 2 years and AAMI reported the stats RE ppl having done the course - improvements were so huge, they offered a lifetime 25% insurance discount for attendees who completed said course.
But - government said venue was to expensive and cancelled their contribution...I could give many similar examples. Nope - the govt speeding rant is about revenue raising but using safety blurbs as to bewilder the “sheep”.

I challenge every single speeding fine I or my family get - not that we all get a shed load between us - but I’ve managed to get off 5/7 over the last 3 years..because I’m prepared to call them out.
They don’t really care, as long as 99.7% pay up, they will continue their with their revenue raising.
Tthis is one reason I’d like to better understand the powers fisheries have - it does seem that their search powers are endless...


Speeding doesnt kill, it can be a factor but innatentive, inconsiderate and hesitant drivers who putt along in their own little bubbles cause chaos on the roads as they a moving hazard that piss people off and encourage road rage like behaviour. Wipe off 5 save lives my ass, why not add 5 over a 2 hour drive and spend less time on the road exposed to d**kheads on their phone.

My speeding is now done at the track...its way to dangerous on the roads in more ways than one. The 7 speeding fines are spread across family members over a number of years and I offer to help out or at least quiz the buggers to a court appearance - my wife got pinged 62 in a 50 zone last month and I was done for 55 in a temp road works (150klms of midlands highway) nominated at 40 kmh...I’m not what you’d call a hoon lol...notvuntil I get to a closed circuit anyway. Tracks = Cheaper, safer and much more fun...

We are currently introducing guardian eye monitors in fleet vehicles at work. Thus far, they have proven pretty amazing - vibrating the seat hard when ever it detects a slowly closing eye or similar...I too believe fatigue (dui -?) is probably the biggest issue on our roads.

Yeah - you don’t need a salt water licence for a rod in Tas (yet)....you do need a licence for a net, cray pot, and similar for salt water. Inland fish (trout) is managed tightly and licences are required for everything.
Yes - will be contacting the fishy establishment seeking out the law so I know...
