Australian Federal Police officer escapes traffic fine – “traffic was light”

By ExFeds 5 October 2010 83

[ED – This is a follow up to the story a month ago about how senior police deal with speeding fines in Canberra. The Herald Sun has done an amazing job pursuing the story]

A SENIOR Australian Federal Police officer allegedly caught travelling at more than 40km/h over the speed limit escaped a fine after a fellow officer decided a warning was sufficient.

This was because the traffic was light and he was an experienced driver, according to documents seen by the Herald Sun.

The documents were produced after Richard Curie, a junior officer who pulled over off-duty Supt Eric Grimm for allegedly travelling at 120km/h in an 80km/h zone, complained he had been pressured to issue a warning notice and not a fine after he returned to his station.

The full story is well worth reading before making comment.

Why the big hoo haa now? They all do it and have done for years. An off duty police officer gets pulled over, the following dialogue occurs:

“Sir show me your licence”

“Certainly!”

Out comes the wallet, badge slips into plain view as the licence is being searched for, a stern talking to/promises of 6 packs is now suddenly considered sufficient.

Remember John Hargreaves DUI and Kate Carnell’s mystery accident after an afternoon party? They didn’t lose their jobs!!!!
