i would have glady paid up i had commited the offence knowingly..
It so happen that stretch of road in Geelong is dam bloody dark.. and not well lighted up.. neither were there clear warning of speed limits....

if i were travelling 80++kmph in KPE, i would gladly pay up the speeding fine cus it is so dam clear to ALL motorist that the speed limit is 70Kmph.
the offence notice typically would have photos of the car and maybe even your face on it. so will be hard to argue. The Aussies are very strict abt traffic laws but they also dont anyhow issue summons. Given its dark and not well lighted up, these would be factors against u for speeding.

my advice is jsut save the hassle and pay la..AUD124 is very cheap liao


ps. i kena aud200 for speeding in WA.

Try coming to melbourne and see if customs stop you, then you know if the fine was waived or not..
even if immigration doesn't stop, car rental companies may stop you from renting their cars cause you kena blacklisted liao. who wants to rent a car to someone who evades fine?

my friend chiong 130km/h in VIC highway kena fine around $400. Aus has strict traffic rules. The traffic fine 3 times more expensive than sg

Got speeding fine in Perth couple of years ago by the famous SGT Zhao. Apparently a few other friends who went Perth got it too and letter shows the same Asian officer name.

Doing 63km on 60km road. $150. Honestly just pay up unless you decided not to step into Australia. Appeal for waiver is a Waste of time. They wonít listen unless maybe you prove that someone is about to die if you donít speed.

Received letter to appear in court after ignoring the 3rd notice. In the end wrote in to appeal and admit fault. That works. They roll back the fine to $150 and cancel court order.

Resolved After much time and hassle. $150 poorer

I was driving slightly above the speed limit when i noticed an officer in front with a speeding gun.

I slowed down and he did not stop me. In this instance, will i receive a speeding fine?

Depends how much over? If you're renting, and an extra admin fee is being charged, usually that's for a traffic offense.

Most newish cars in Australia have a few km/h tolerances on their speedo (due to the design rule), so you might be just fine.

Check your CC statement, if you were charged extra $60 by the rental co., most likely a fine coming your way
