Hi everyone I was wondering if anyone who knows anything about ACT traffic laws could help me out with a problem. I was recently sent a red light camera speeding fine “reminder” notice in the mail. My problem is that this letter clams the offence was from 10 months ago…. last October.
Now thats almost a year gap between the time the camera supposedly caught me to when they have sent me a letter….. they never sent me an actual offence notification. This letter claims to be a “reminder” notice. Is there a time limit in which an offence can be issued??
Why has the ACT government allowed registration of my vehicle twice since this offence when they say it was clearly on their records and that non payment of the offence would result in me being unable to register my car????
The other issue is that I’m fairly sure I was turning a corner at the time and I’d like to see anyone try to take corner at 91km/ph…. I come from NSW and have moved to the ACT, I feel like I have fallen down a rabbit hole and nothing in this strange new territory makes any sense. Everything seems backward and no one I talk to can seem to help me out. I love it when the government authority you ring about these issues, has the power to issue fines but when questioned, they know nothing of the laws regarding these fines?!?! Who the hell is running this place???????
