That is an excessive fine for such a minor offense.
That's Australia mate! I parked in a loading zone in Melbourne while I unloaded luggage for two ladies I was traveling with and was hit with $120 citation. They watched me unload luggage while they wrote the ticket!!! I told the meter maids that I was there doing work for their government and they could write whatever tickets they wanted, I had no intentions of moving the vehicle until it was unloaded. You would think two dames would be sympathetic to someone being chivalrous, but apparently that wasn't the case.

Edit: I looked back and it was actually $170.

They always seem to be a Chinese 'V7' or a Whistler that they get.

I'm sure most know that they are illegal, but are probably unaware of the Spectre RDD, but to be in plain view on the dash when you know the cops can pull you over for an RBT.....:bang:

What is the logic in making RD's illegal? Just want to know how stupid law enforcement and the so called powers to be in so called democratic are. Every time I try to show respect they disappoint me either through greed or stupidity. Probably going to get worse as the Snowflake generation filters into the hall of unchecked power.

NZ is not far away from doing so. It is currently "war on tourist season" but wait till we get back to "War on speeders season"- the media is so annoying when it comes to both topics.

My fear is that silly twat Julie Anne Genter will find out about CM's and make them illegal.
I'm formulating ideas about stealth installs. Just in case.

As a voting block we can make a difference when it comes time to choose a government. Just a bit of effort (unlikely) we could remind the motoring public how the road toll didn't change with all the revenue collected and to support a party that believes in public good not government pockets. We only have to make a few percent think to change an outcome. I really need to get a helmet cam to show that speeding dogma is a load of crap. They say speed was involved in a big percentage of accidents. Oh really? It's a medical fact that any impact to a human over 5kph can be fatal. That was the argument used to make a person walk with a white flag in front of an vehicle. Low hanging fruit, easy pickings. It might actually take a we bit of thought to make our roads safer but then they would also have to admit the speeding rant was all a lie and just a lazy way of taxing the motorist.
As for the Water Mellons (Green on the outside but Red in the middle) any excuse to control your life with the arrogant justification they know better than you, and personal reasonability is a fantasy thought up by the Right!

Bikers tried to fight when the Tories raised ACC levys through the roof. There were demonstrations at Parliament, MAGNZ was set up to fight it. There were the slow rides through Auckland in protest.
What happened? Nothing at all. There was zero media coverage.
Political power is in the vote, if people don't vote, or vote out of ignorance the politicians can just ignore us.
